2. Owners of' iarometers should lake readings daily at TI a.m., 4. p.m. and 10 p.rm.
Any cihnge lower tha, t h usual diurnal one of 0"10 inch should i i)e regarded with suspicion.

3. The nmasl rs or agents of vessels i iin doubt should contiiinuicate with the Harbour

OBJECTS AND REASONS,


Under the present provisions of the Currency Act
no part of the Currency Fund, maintained by the Currency
Board for meeting the redemption of currency issued by the
Board, may be invested in sterling securities of or guaran-
teed by the Governments of any of the territories partici-
pating in the unified system of currency operated by the
Board.

2. The Governments of the territories concerned and the
Secretary of State have agreed, however, that there is no
longer any objection to the investment, within prescribed
limits, of a part of the Currency Fund in such local
securities.

3. This Bill seeks therefore to amend the Currency Act
so as to permit such investment up to a limit of two
million five hundred thousand pounds, which represented
twenty per cent. of the monies in the Currency Fund at the
31st December, 1'.I5 1. This amount may however be revised
from time to time by joint action of the Governors of the
territories concerned, with the approval of the Secretary of
State.
4. Broadly speaking these steps are designed to enable a
suitable proportion of the currency backing to be invested in
loans raised locally to finance development projects, while
at the same time preserving public confidence in the cur-
rency itself.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.



Prior to the 1st day of July, 1956, by virtue of the
definition of the expression Governor" in the Interpretation
of Laws Act, 1896, as amended, the powers and duties vested
in the Governor under Presidential Ordinances were exercisable
by the officer for the time being administering the government
of the Presidency.

2. By virtue of the delegation by the Governor to the
Administrator under the Delegation of Powers Act, 1937, the
powers and duties vested in the Governor which were specified
in the Schedule to S.R. & 0. 1954, No. 26 were exercisable by
the Administrator.

3. As a result of the repeal of the Interpretation of Laws
Act, 1896 and its amendments (which became effective on the
Sst day of July, 1956) and of the definition of Governor "
contained in the Interpretation and General Clauses Act, 1955
(which, as amended by the Adaptation of Laws Regulations,
1956, has, as from the 1st July, 1956, become the Interpreta-
tion of Laws legislation in force in the Colony) the powers and
duties mentioned in the preceding paragraphs can no longer be
exercised by the Administrator.

4. The object of this Bill is to extend the definition of
"Governor" to include the officer administering the Govern-
ment of the Colony in all legislation having effect on the 1st
July, 1956, excepting the Police Act, 1951, as amended, and
the Antigua Constitution and Elections Ordinance, 1952 and
any other legislation where it is clearly intended that references
to the Governor" shall be construed to niman the Governor of
the Leeward Islands.
