The premises occupied by the Board since 1921 for use as a Government Liquor Warehouse, situate at 1019 Wharf Street, Victoria, were acquired by the Board under favourable
terms.
STAFF.
The number of employees on the permanent staff of the Liquor Control Board as at
March 31st, 1940, is 292, being 277 males and 15 females.
The staff has shown at all times loyal co-operation in carrying out the various duties
assigned, and the Board wishes to take this opportunity of recording its appreciation.
During the period under review, 6 employees were retired and placed under superannuation in accordance with the provisions of the Superannuation Scheme.
STOCKS.
The value of the stocks of liquor on hand as at March 31st, 1940, amounted to $1,685,056.06,
being an increase of $528,817.54 over the inventory figure at the end of the year immediately
preceding.
While there is a substantial increase in sales for the current year, the additional stocks
were carried as protection against a shortage due to unsettled conditions in the markets of
the world and delayed shipments on account of the war.
SALES.
The total sales of $14,960,233.64 show an increase of $1,222,136.38 over the previous
period.

RE REGULATION No. 22.
(B.C. Gazette reference, February 1st, 1940.)
Resolution No. 9303.—Resolved, That Regulation No. 22 be amended in accordance with
the Schedule hereto attached, the same to become effective on the 1st day of February,
1940:—
SCHEDULE.
Amendments to Regulation No. 22 of the Liquor Control Board.
1. By striking out clauses  (d) and  (e) of section 4 of the said regulation.
2. By striking out subclause (3)  of clause  (m)  of section 4 of the said regulation.
3. By striking out paragraph (a) of subclause (5) of clause (m) of section 4 of the said regulation, and by substituting therefor the following:—
"(a.)  At any time between 1 o'clock in the morning and 10 o'clock in the morning upon any
day of the week."
4. By adding the following subclauses to clause (m) of section 4 of the said regulation:—
"(9.) Club members may keep liquor in individual lockers on the Club premises and may, when the
Club has operated under the locker system for a period of not less than one year, on the written permission of the Board to the Club, pool their purchases, in which event the liquor so pooled may be left
in the custody of the Club: Provided that the members of any Club shall not be privileged to pool
liquor unless the  Club premises be  under the  supervision  of a  Club  manager and house committee, REPORT OF LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD, 1939-40.
Q 35
APPENDIX C—Continued.
which committee shall adequately represent the governing body of the Club; and also provided that
the said Club is not the holder of any licence issued under the ' Government Liquor Act' other than
a Club Licence.
"(10.) No Club shall sell any liquor from the said pool, but may serve same to the members of the
pool and may make a reasonable charge for such service.
"(11.) The amount of such service charge shall not exceed an amount which the Board in its sole
discretion may deem reasonable. In the event of any Club making a service charge which the Board
deems unreasonable the Board may withdraw its permission for the operation of a pool in such Club.
"(12.) Clubs which shall have been granted permission to operate the pool system shall designate
one or more of their members or employees as a purchasing agent or agents for the members of such
pool, which designation must first be approved by the Board, and the person or persons so designated
and approved may purchase liquor for such pool. A special form of permit to be known as ' Club Pool
Permit' shall thereupon be granted and such permit shall authorize such person or persons to purchase
liquor for such pool upon presentation of such permit to any Government Liquor Store.
"(13.) Members or guests of the Club shall not participate in the pool until they have contributed
to same. Any member or guest desiring to join and participate in the pool shall make a contribution
thereto. Such contributions shall be evidenced by a scrip-book issued to such member or guest. Scrip-
books must be issued containing scrip of the value of $2 and $5 or $10. No contribution to the pool
shall be accepted in any lesser amount than the amount of the minimum scrip-book adopted by the
Club. The scrip-books shall be numbered serially and shall be issued in regular order according to
their serial numbers. In issuing the scrip-book the person issuing the same shall write upon the cover
the name and Individual Liquor Permit number of the member or guest to whom the scrip is issued,
also the date of issue, and shall make a record thereof.
"(14.) The Club shall install and maintain proper records and a proper book-keeping system, and
books of account showing all transactions connected with or incidental to the operation of such pool by
the Club for the members of the pool. The Club shall also install records which shall show the name
and address of each person participating in the pool and the number of Individual Liquor Permit held
by such person.
"(15.) All records, books, and accounts of the Club which can in any way affect or bear upon the
operation of the pool by the Club for its members shall be open at all reasonable times to inspection
and audit by the Board, whose agents shall be entitled to make copies thereof or extracts therefrom.
"(16.) Each Club on making application for permission to operate a liquor pool shall specify what
portions of the Club premises are to be used for the storing of the pooled liquor."
