1980 Victory Downs Motel (N.T.) application withdrawn. Mt. Ebenezer Roadhouse (N.T.) - six-can limit instituted. 1981 Marla Hotel/Motel (S.A.) licence for "on-premises" sales granted; "takeaway" sales restricted to "bona fide travellers". 1983 Ernest Giles (Yulara) Tavern (N.T.) "On-premises" licence granted, "takeaway" licence application rejected. Decision of the Commission Chairman reviewed by a three-member sitting of the Commission at the request of the applicant. "Takeaway" licence granted. Prerogative writ quashing this decision granted by the N.T. Supreme Court. Decision appealed by the licensee and the Liquor Commission. Case settled on the basis that the Council and the licensee jointly approach the Liquor Commission seeking "Marla conditions" (see below under 1984). The Commission refuses licence conditions but agrees to note on the licence the existence of an agreement between the Council and the licensee. 1983 Victory Downs Motel (N.T.) "takeaway" licence application opposed. N.T. Supreme Court quashes Liquor Commission proceedings. Establishment closes down prior to resolution of the issue. 1984 Erldunda Roadhouse (N.T.) "takeaway" application withdrawn during hearing of the application. Renewal of licences at Mt. Ebenezer, Curtin Springs and Kulgera (all N.T.) formal agreement with Kulgera noted on licence in 1985; - Mt. Ebenezer renewed due to six-can limit; - informal arrangement with Curtin Springs approved by Chairman of the Liquor Commission. The arrangement is not noted on the licence. 20
