OBJECTS AND REASONS.

The Defence (Finance) Regulaitions, 1939, were brought
into operation in the (Colony by virtLue of the Emergency Powers
(Defence) Act, 1939, and continued in force after the expiry of
that Act on 24th February, i, tI; by the Supplies and Services
(Transitional powers) (Colonies etc.) Order ii, Council, 1916.
2 The duration of the Supplies and Services (TranLi-
tional Powers) Act, 1945 was five years after the passing
thereof and the same was due to expire on the 10th day of
December, 1950. By setcion 8 of the Act, however, provision
was made for the extension of its. duration if an address \\as
presented while the Act is in force to His Majesty by each
louse of Parliament pri'' ,. : t.r it the Act should be continued
in force for a further period of one year. Such :an address has
been presented annually and by Order in Council the duration
of the said Act to us each year been extended for a futher
period of one year.
3. The Defence (Fnaiice) Regulations, 1939 will therefore
expire on the 10th 1 iecimb!er, 1957 unless extended. As it is
necessary that legislatiion shl.lld noww be enacted on similar lines
to the Exchange Control Act, 1947 of th UTnited Kingdom to
replace these Defence (Finance) l.egulations, a model Exchange
Control Bill has accorlingl been prepared by the Secretary of
Stare for adoption in the Colonies, and the Bill intituled the
Exchange Control Act, 1957, is a adaptation of that model.
4. It may be pointed out that careful consideration has
been given to the question whether the Bill a, now presented
may not provide too elaborate a piece of le islation to meet the
minimum requirements of the (Col ny, hii it iS consideredd that
less comprehensive legislation would be insufficient and that the
Bill in its present form, being comparable to its imperial pro-
totype, will make it easier for officers and others concerned

with its interpretation and administration, to cope with the
very difficult problems that may from timeto time arise on this
very technical subject. Moreover, general uniformity of powers
as containiid in the Bill and in the [iuperii:ld Act will also stop
any gaps in local control which might be exploited by persons
in the United Kingdom or in any other parts of the Scheduled
Territories (as appearing in the First Schedule to the Bill) for
the purpose of circumventing the regulations in their own
country
5. The main features of the Bill may be summarized
thus:-
(a) Part I restricts dealing in gold and foreign
currency except with authorised dealers and requires gold
and most foreign currencies to be sold to them.
(b) Part II prevents payments to persons outside the
sterling area, except with the permission of the Treasurer.
(c) Part III mintatins the existing control over the
issue and transfer of securities where non-residents are con-
cerned- and provides for the control over foreign and bearer
securities.
(d) Part IV continues present controlover import
and export of currency notes, securities, etc. and provides
the necessary powers to ensure that exports are properly
paid for.
(e) Part \ contains miscellaneous provisions concern-
ing the prompt collection of debts, control of foreign
subsidiaries and ancillary matters; and
(r) Part VI contains, in addition to formal provi-
sions, power for the Governor to issue exemption orders.

Prison (Amendment)


OBJECTS AND REASONS,


So long as the Keeper of the Prison remains an officer
of a relatively low grade as at present, it is considered essential
that some superior officer from another department be appointed
to supervise the management and discipline of the prison. The
law in force in the Leward Islands before defederation
(L.I.R.A. Cap. 111) expressly provided for the appointment of
an Officer in charge of Prison Discipline in addition to the
Keeper but the present law (V.[iitserrat Ordinance No. 11 of
1955) does not, and section 7 of the latter Ordinance seems to
contemplate that one officer should be in complete control of the
prison. The object of this Bill is to amend this section so as to
permit the appointment of an Officer in charge of Prison
Discipline so long as the necessity continues.

President,





Pension Act (Amendment)


day


Passed the Legislative Council this
1957.


Clerk of the Council.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.

Under section 2 of the Principal Act "other public service"
has, from time to time, been determined to be service in the
Colony which is not service "under the Government" in the
Colony.

2. The words the service of the Colony" and "service
in the Colony" occur in several sections of the Principal Act
and it is deemed desirable that those words should be amended
in the manner sought by this Bill so as to achieve consistency of
language and thereby to avoid any difficulties which may arise
in the computation of pensions.

3. The opportunity has been taken to seek to make a
minor amendment to section 3 of the Principal Act.
