AMERICAN CONSULATE
Barbados, B. W.I.,
April 23, 1958.
Under the authority of the Immi-
gration and Nationality Act which
become effective December 24, 1952,
the Secretary of State established
within the quota proclaimed for Great
Britain and Northern Ireland annual
subquotas of 100 each for the follow-
ing areas in the West Indies: (1)
Barbados (2) Jamaica (3) Trinidad
including Tobago (4) Leeward Islands
(5) Windward Islands.
Legislative action by the British
Government has abolished the Lee-
ward Islands group and the Windward
Islands group and created therefrom
eight separate colonial territories,
seven of them component parts of the
new West Indies Federation, and the
eight, namely, the British Virgin Is-
lands, a separate Crown Colony.
Accordingly, the following changes


in subquotas are made as a matter of
United States Law. With the opening
of the Parliament of the Federation
of the West Indies on April 22, 1958,
existing subquotas for the Leeward
Islands and the Windward Islands are
abolished and separate annual sub-
quotas of 100 each are simultaneously
established within the quota pro-
claim(-d for Great Britain and
Northern Ireland for (1) Antigua
(2) Dominica (3) Grenada (4) Montser.
rat (5).' S. Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla
(6) St. Lucia and (7) St. Vincent. At
the same time, a separate subquota of
100 a year is set up for the British
Virgin Islands which was formerly a
parr of the Leeward Islands group and
which now hss the status of a Crown
Colony. The separate subquotas
which as mentioned above were al-
ready established for Barbados,
Jamaica and Trinidad (including
Tobago) remain intact.
The annual allocation from the Bri-
tish quota of quota numbers for the
West Indies is thus increased from
500 to 1,000 and in addition a new
subquota for the British Virgin Is-
lands is established.
The increased allocation of quota
numbers to the areas comes out of the
British overall quota and does not in
any way increase the total immigra-
tion quota.
Appropriate instructions have been
addressed to American consular
officers around the world.

The following Press Release has
been issued by the Federal Govern-
ment:-
"The Federal Government have
received the report of the Joint
Commission on Chaguaramas, a
summary of which is contained in
a separate press notice published
today by the United Kingdom
Government. Despite the special
problems presented at this time
by the simultaneous tasks of or-
ganising the new Government and
attending to several pressing Fede-
ral affairs, the report is receiving
study in detail and a further state-
ment will be issued as early as

able generating plant.

ing rise to the liability, the policy was can-
celled by mutual consent or by virtue of any
provision contained therein, and either -

(i) before the happening of the said
event the certificate was surrender-
ed to the insurer, or the person in
whose favour the certificate was
issued made a statutory declaration
stating that the certificate had been
lost or destroyed; or

(ii) after the happening of the said
event, but before the expiration of a
period of fourteen days from the
taking effect of the cancellation of
the policy, the certificate was sur-
rendered to the insurer, or the

ficate was issued made such a decla-
ration as aforesaid; or

ing of the said event, but within
the said period of fourteen days, the
insurer has commenced proceedings
under this Ordinance in respect of
the failure to surrender the certi-
ficate.

under the foregoing provisions of this section, if
in an action commenced before, or within three
months after the commencement of the proceed-
ings in which the judgment was given he has
obtained a declaration that apart, from any pro-
vision contained in the policy he is entitled to
avoid it on the ground that it was obtained by
the non-disclosure of a material fact or by a
representation of fact which was false in some
material particular, or, if he has avoided the
policy on that ground, that he was entitled so to
do apart from any provision contained in it:
Provided that an insurer who has obtained
such a declaration a.s aforesaid in an action shall
not thereby become entitled to the benefit of
this subsection as respects any judgment obtain-

action he has given notice thereof to the person
who is the plaintiff in the said proceedings spe-

be entitled, if he thinks fit, to be made a party
thereto. "

(4) If the amount which an insurer be-
comes liable under this section to pay in respect
of a liability of a person insured by a policy ex--
ceeds the amount for which he would, apart from
the provisions of this section, be liable under the
policy in respect of that liability, he shall be
entitled to recover the excess from that person. -

(5) In this section the expression "material"
means of such a nature as to influence the
judgment of a prudent insurer in determining
whether he will take the risk, and, if so, at what
premium and on what conditions, and the
expression "liability covered by the terms of the
policy" means a liability which is covered by the :
policy or which would be so covered but for the
fact that the insurer is entitled to avoid or
cancel, or has avoided or cancelled, the policy.

(6) In this Ordinance references to a certi-
ficate of insurance in any provision relating to
the surrender or the loss or destruction of a cer-
tificate of insurance shall in relation to policies
under which more than one certificate is issued
be construed as references to all the certificates
and shall where any copy has been issued of any
certificate be construed as including a reference
to that copy.

8. Where a certificate of insurance has been
issued under subsection (3) of section 4 of this
Ordinance in favour of the person by whom a
policy has been effected, the happening in re-
lation to any person insured by the policy of any
such event as is mentioned -in subsection (1) or
subsection (2) of section 2 of the Third Parties
(Rights against Insurers) Act. 1949, shall, not-
withstanding anything in this Ordinance, not
affect any such liability of that person as is re-
quired to be covered by a policy under paragraph
(b) of subsection (1) of section 4 of this Ordi-
nance but nothing in this section shall affect any
rights against- the insurer conferred by this
Ordinance on the person to whom the liability
was incurred.
