The Administrator of Montserrat
has made the following appointment
under section 3 of the Marriage Ordi-
nance, 1921, (Montserrat No. 6 of
1921):-
The Rev-rend J. R. MADDRAN to
to be a Marriage Officer with effect
from the 4th November. 1957.


It is hereby notified for general
information that the Colonial Air
Navigation Order, 1955, of the United
Kingdom has been amended by the
Colonial Air Navigation (Amend-
ment) (No. 2) Order, 1957, made by
Her Majesty in Council on the 8th
day of October, 1957, and laid before
Parliament on the 14th day of Octo-
ber, 1957. This amendment will
come into force on 1st February, 1958.

2. This Order amends the Colonial
Air Navigation Order, 1955, by includ-
ing in that Order new provisions for
preventing excessive fatigue on the
part of the operating crew (i.e., pilots,
flight engineers; flight navigators and
flight radio operators) of aircraft
registered in the Colony. These pro-
visions are set out in considerable
detail in Articles 34A to 34H, while
Article 341 enables the Governor to
modify or replace any or all of them
should they appear inappropriate for
application in respect of aircraft
registered in the Colony. It also
amends the Rules of the Air and Air
Traffic Control. The Order thus per-
mits a glider when hill-soaring, to fly
closer than 500 feet to any person,
vessel, vehicle or structure, and it also
substitututes for the existing Rule of
the kir dealing with flight within the
traffic zones of aerodromes a new Rule
which substantially re-enacts the
present requirements but includes
new provisions prohibiting flight
within such zones except for specified
purposes such as landing or take off,
unless permission of the appropriate
authority has been obtained.

3. A copy of this Order may be
seen if desired at the Offices of the
Chief Secretary or of any of the
Administrators of the Leeward
Islands. The Order will in due course
form part of the bound volume of
Laws of the Leeward Islands for 1957.
