6. —If and whenever after the 1st day of January, 1919—

(a) it was impossible to renew a licence for the sale of any class or classes of intoxicating liquor, whether on or off the premises, because of the Annual Licensing Petty Sessions not being holden in the County or County Borough in which the licensed premises were situate, or because of there being no Justice of the Peace or an insufficient number of Justices of the Peace in such County or County Borough to give the certificates requisite for such renewal, or because the holder of such licence objected on principle to apply to such Petty Sessions for renewal of his licence or to such Justices for such certificates, and

(b) all excise duties payable for or in respect of such licence since the last renewal thereof have been or shall within one month after the passing of this Act be duly paid,

such licence shall for all purposes be deemed to be and to have been continuously since the last renewal thereof as valid and effectual as if the same had been regularly renewed in each year since the last renewal thereof and shall continue to be of such validity and effect up to and including the 10th day of October, 1923, and every transfer of such licence made or to be made after the expiration of one year from the last renewal thereof and before the 11th day of October, 1923, shall be, and be deemed always to have been, as valid and effectual as if such licence had been regularly renewed every year up to and including the year in which such transfer was or shall be made.
