Clerk of the Council,
ATI!A.4 Currevoy Act (.lmindent) No. of 1956K
OBJECT 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 guaraA teed by the Governments of any of the territories participating 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, 1954. 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 currency itself.
