MO NTSERRAT.
PRIVY COUNCIL (CAPITAL SENTENCES) APPEAL RULES.


RULES MADE BY THE ADMINISTRATOR REGARDING THE PROCEDURE TO BE OBSERVED FOR DEALING
WITH APPLICATIONS FROM OR ON BEHALF OF PERSONS UNDER SENTENCE OF DEATH FOR
SPECIAL LEAVE TO APPEAL TO THE JUDICIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL.


1. These Rules may be cited as the Privy Council (Capital Sentences) Appeal Rules, 1961.
2. (a) If intimation is received from or on behalf of a person condemned to death that it is
intended to apply to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council for special leave to appeal, the
execution will be postponed and a date, three weeks later, will be fixed, before which proof must be
furnished to the Administrator that the necessary instructions and funds have been sent by air mail to a
firm of solicitors in London and the necessary papers by registered ordinary mail. The condemned
person and his adviser will be informed of the date so fixed and the papers and funds which must be
sent; and also, where the applicant indicates his intention of applying in forma pauperis, of the
procedure relating to such applications as set out in Rule 4 below. They will be informed at the same
time that unless the application for special leave is lodged in the Privy Council Office before a further
date fixed by the Secretary of State and communicated to the firm of solicitors intimation will be received
from the Colonial Office, and the execution will not be further postponed.
Note (i) If sentences of death have been passed on more than one person in the same case,
and if intimation is received from, or on behalf of, only one or more but not all of them of an
intention to apply for leave to appeal to the Privy Council, the execution of the sentence will
be postponed not onlv in the case of the person or persons from whom, or on whose behalf,
such intimation has been received but also in the case of the other person or persons from
whom, or on whose behalf, no such intimation has been received.
Note (ii) The necessary funds will be a minimum of 50 guineas if one Counsel is engaged,
but will be 80 to 100 guineas if the record is bulky or more than one Counsel is engaged. The
applicant and his adviser will, therefore, be advised on receipt of the intimation of intention to
apply for special leave, that 50 guineas must be sent by the date fixed, and that it is not
unlikely that 30 to 50 guineas more will be required.
Note (iii). The necessary papers will include two copies of the record and a certified
copy and two further copies of the judgment, etc., of the Court of Criminal Appeal.
Note (iv). Whenever an intimation is received of the intention of a person condemned
to death to apply to the Judicial Committee, three copies of the record and of the judgment of
the Court of Criminal Appeal will be forthwith addressed directly by the Administrator to
the Legal Adviser at the Colonial Office, one copy of each being a certified copy. One of such
sets of papers shall be sent by the first available air mail.
(b) If proof is not furnished before the date fixed that the necessary papers, instructions and
funds have been sent to a firm of solicitors in London, the execution will not be further postponed
unless the Administrator is satisfied that the delay is due to no fault of the applicant or his adviser.
If, in any special case the Administrator for this reason allows an extension of the date for
furnishing of proof, the further date within which proof must be furnished will be intimated
to the applicant or his adviser.
(c) If proof is furnished before the date fixed, the applicant or his adviser will be required to
intimate the name of the firm of solicitors to whom the papers, instructions and funds have been
sent and the registered numbers of the packages containing such papers, instructions and funds,
and the name of the firm, the date of the despatch of the papers, etc., and the registered number of
the package will be communicated to the Colonial Office, by telegram directly by the Administrator.
Note. If proof is furnished that the necessary papers and instructions, but less than the
minimum funds referred to in Rule 2 (a), Note (ii) have been sent to a firm of solicitors in
England, the Administrator shall forthwith telegraph to the Colonial Office the names of the
applicant and such solicitors.
(d) After proof is furnished that the necessary papers, instructions and funds have been sent to
England, the execution will be, except in cases under Rule 4 (c), postponed until intimation is
received by the Administrator from the Colonial Office that the application for special leave has
not been lodged in the Privy Council Office by the date fixed, or by such date as the Secretary of
State may have decided to extend the date to, or that the application has been dismissed by the
Judicial Committee.

I. CURRENCY NOTE; CIRCULATION OF GOVERNMENTS OF BARBADOS, BllITISH1

CARIBBEAN CURRENCY BOARD
1. The value of the governmentt currency notes in circulation taken over by the Board on Iht
August, 1951, was $ i36(, .-138,292 shown elrn'l

TOTAL .... .... .... .... .... .... $ 36,438,2992

2. These three Government currenov note issues were demonetized with effect from 2nd January,
1955, from which date the currency notes ceased to be legal tender in the Eastern Group of British
Caribbean Territories.
3. The value of these Government currency notes unclaimed at I3st December, 1959, was
$1,006,660.50.

$1,006,660.50

II. BRITISH CARIBBEAN CURRENCY NOTE CIRCULATION
4. The value of British Caribbean currency notes in circulation at 31st December, 1959, was
$85,806,431.50 an increase of $7,084,743 on the circulation at 31st December, 1958.
5. The total currency notes in circulation, inclusive of the demonetized Government currency notes
at 31st December, 1959, was 886,813,092 an increase of $7,061,000 on the total circulation at 31st
December, 1958.
6. The circulation in the various denominations (inclusive of demonetized Barbados, British
Guiana and Trinidad and Tobago Government currency notes) at 31st December, 1959, is shown in
Appendix I and the value of currency notes in circulation in the various Territories at the same date is
shown in Appendix II. Appendix III shows the value of currency notes in active circulation (i.e. the
value of the circulation as shown in Appendix II less the value of currency notes held by Banks). The
total circulation at 31st December in the years 1951-1959 is shown in Appendix IV.
7. The average value of the currency circulation (notes and coin) in the Eastern Group of British
Caribbean Territories, the average value of jthe currency circulation (notes and coin) in each Territory
of the Group, and the proportion of the average value of the currency circulation in each Territory to
the average value of the eiiculation in the Group, during the year 1958 and 1959 are shown in
Appendix V.
8. The circulation of currency notes in each Territory is based on issues of currency notes, less
currency notes withdrawn from circulation in the Territory, adjusted to take account of inter bank-tran-
sactions. Movements of currency notes from one Territory to another by travellers are unascertainable
and are therefore not taken into account in arriving at the circulation in each Territory. These move-
ments of currency notes by travellers are estimned to be not inconsiderable and the circulation in each
Territory on the basis set out above may not therefore reflect a very accurate picture of the actual cur-
rency notes in circulation in each Territory. The total currency note circulation of the group of Terri-
tories may however be regarded as accurate us few, if any, British Caribbean currency notes circulate
outside of the group, British Caribbean currency notes taken to Jamaica being repatriated on payment
into a Bank.
IV. CURRENCY NOTES ISSUED AND REDEEMED FOR STERLING IN LONDON
9. Currency notes of a value of $15,636,000 were issued and currency notes of a value of
$8,630,000 were redeemed, for sterling in London during 1959.
V. SOILED AND MUL 'ILATED CURRENCY NOTES WITHDRAWN FROM CIRCULATION
10. During 1959 a total of 11,255,7941 soiled and mutilated currency notes of a value of
$38,418,000 were withdrawn from circulation for cancellation and destruction. Appendix VI shows the
currency notes of each denomination withdrawn and cancelled, and the cancelled currency notes destroyed,
at each Centre during 1959.

notes actually withdrawn 'acvh yver.
2. The allocation to the Currency lFud shlioull have be .n $:.55,599.26 and not $955,559.26. As a result, the
amount transferred to the Currency Surplus Acc.unt hltz; been ov-rstated by $40.00.

Currency Fund:
3. The charge of $389.10 in the Currency Fund relates to Crown Agent's commission on the gain on Treasury
Bills which has been credited to the Currency Fund.

4. Under Article 3 (4) of the agreemeiMnt contained in the First Schiedule to the Currency Ordinance, CUl. 35. No. 2
(Trinidad and Tobago), the Secretary o! Strate on the 21th Jun-, 1958, gave approval for the liquid portion of the
Fund to b,) increased from 10 per cent. to 20 per cent. for at least, two years. At 31st December, 1959, this limit was
exceeded by $3,804,301.34, and this does not include the amount of $955,559.26 transferred from the Income
Account to the Currency Fund under Article 4 (2) (c), and $5 350.00 due from the Government of 8t. Vincent.

Cash and Securities with Crown Agents:
5. With reference to pawi ;raph 5 of my Report f.,r the year 1958, the Comptroller and Auditor-General has
certified the balances held by the Crown Agents at 31st December, 1958. A statement of cash and securities held by
the Crown Agents on behalf of the Board at 31st December, 1959, has been seen, but the certificate of the comptrollerr
and Auditor General has not yet been received.

Board of Surrey:
6. The position reported it. paragraph 8 of my Report for the year 1958 remained the same, as all Boards of
Survey w -re still unable to comply with Regulation 10 (4) of die (Currency (Coin) Regulations, 1955.
7. It was reported that th Board of Survey hal not c :ril out the checks laid down for United Kingdmin coins
atthe survey held in St. Kitts .n the 16th D e.-nbllr, 1961, alt lhugh inmebers signed an unqualified certificate indicating
that the checi:s ilri been nmadl.
8. ''h following SHurvevs were not li-ld diurin,., the y a;.r :a r'tlui-id by Regulation 20 (3) of the Currency (Notes)

Auditend S/alnents from Particiipating Territories:

9. Aulite I Statemennts of the Currency transactions during 1959 have not been received from any of the Leeward
Islands. Verification of these, transactions, however, has been made from the Vault Book Returns from these territories
"which were received by the Executive Commissioner in Port-of-Spain.

26th April, 1960. I. V. G. MACKAY
Director o/ Audit


MEMORANDUM ON REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF AUDIT ON ACCOUNTS OF THE BOARD FOR THE YEAR

Currency Fund Income A.tccomut:
At the fourteenth meeting of the Board held on 2cth Septemb er, 1959, it was decided that connission on $20,000
i. e. $75. 00, he paid to Messrs. Barclays Bank D. C. O. in full settlement of the Board's undertaking to issue British
Caribbean cnrrenoy notes free of coinminssion to the Bank to tih value of the Bank's notes withdrawn from circulation,
in view of the Bank having voluntarily surrendered its right under Charter to issue notes. The value of the Bank's
notes in circulation at August, 1958 w.,s $59. 285 anl the action taken by the Board was intended to finalise its under-
taking to the Bank which was otherwise likely to remain in force indefinitely.

2. The allocation of $40. 00 in excess under Article 4 (2) (c) of the Currency Agreement has been adjusted in 1960.

Currency Fundm
3. It is thl normal procilure to charge brokerage and/ or commission in connection with the purchase and sale of
securities on behalf of the Currency Fund to the Fund.
4. The approved limitof the portion of the Currency Fund that may he held in liquid form was exceeded at 31st
December, 1959. consequent on uncertainty of date (if enactment of legislation in all of tle Territories enabling local
loans approved by the HBord to be male, and also to heavy purchases of currency for sterling in Novemberer-December,
1959. Steps have been taken to obtain approval for the excess in the circumstances.
