Crown Proceedings (Amendment) Ordinance, 1956.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.



The object of this Bill is to rectify a hiatus in the local
law consequent upon the coming into force of the United
Kingdom Patents Act, 1919 (Imperial). This defect was
drawn to the attention of the Montserrat Government by
the Secretary of State in Circular I113:3/.:r dated 8th
November, 1955.

2. Under the United Kingdom Patents Acts 1907-
1946, all patents based on non-convention applications were
dated as at the date of the application in tlie United Kingdom.

Act thus provides that the use of the patent in the Colony
by some person after the date of the patent in the United
Kingdom and prior to the date of the certificate of registra-
tion issued in the Colony should not be a ground for chal-
lenging the validity of the certificate.

3. Under the United Kingdom Patents Act, 1949,
however, patents are dated as the date of filing the complete
specification and some considerable time may elapse between
the provisional application and the date of filing the com-
plete specification. It is therefore necessary to amend sec-
tion 8 of the local Act in order to bring it in line with the
United Kingdom Patents Act, 19,49.
