should be subject to a literacy test the
publication of the report of the Standing
Closer Association Committee has led to a
review of this matter, for in paragraph 50
the Committee recommended unequivocal-
ly that elections for tie proposed federall
Legislature should b'. by Universal Ad nlt
Suffrage. The Councils of the Windward
Islands in committee have since agreed to
recommend that our elections should be
on the same basis and that in future there
should be no literacy test. This recom-
mendation has been accepted by the Secre-
tary of State. The residential qualification
cf the elector will remain as Is the usual
practice 12 months.
Property and income qualificatibnsof a
candidate for election to Council are to be
removed but a deposit of $120 will be
required.
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNkCIL. The
Administrator and not the Governor will
be the President of Legislative (Council
which will consist of 14 members..(includ-
ing the President) -3 ex officio members,
3 nominated members and 8 elected nem-
bers This composition gives effect to a
unanimous desire for a cler elected
majority. The power to define electoral
districts will rest with the Governor in
Executive Council.
It is proposed to make provision for
election from within the Councils of a
Deputy President of Legislative Council
and the Presiding Officer whether the
Administrator or the Deputy President
will have a casting vote only.
Ex officio members will regain their
right to vote. Uutil such time as a min.
i3terial system can be introduced ex officio
members must necessarily play an import-
ant part in Council and it wofld be
invidious and a source of weakness rather

thin strength to deprive them' of their
voting rights.
The Standing Advisory Committees
which we hope to try as an experiment
whilst not in themselves the beginning of
a ministerial system can do much to create
conditions which are necessarily antece-
dent to establishing such a system.
The Goveenor will retain the right to
address the Councils at any time and no
change is proposed in his reserved powers.
As regards the selection of nominated
members the Gevernor will endeavour to
select persons best fitted to serve broadly
the best interests of the Colony as a
whole. In making his selection the Gov-
erner will remain free to consult local
representative bodies or not at his discre _
tion, but final selection of an individiatf
will always rest with him.
The life of the Council will continue tf
be 8 years.
THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL. Here
again it is proposed to introduce.an im-
portant change. Each Legislative Coun.
cil will be empowered to.elect 3 elected
members to serve on the Executive Coun-
cil All members of Legislative Council
and not only elected members, would have
a vote in the selection of their representa-
tives. This, will in effe.'t introduce into
Executive Council a, measure of. responsi-
bility to,Legislative Council which would
further ,ramoye an elected member from
Executive Council by atwo-thirds majority
Svote. In addition the Governor would be
eripowered to nominate to Executive
Council one 9f the nominated members of
the Legislative Council. Official members
of Executive Council would consist of fhe
Administrator, Attorney General or Crown
Attorney, Financial Secretary or Treasurer
and one other official member.
The. Governor will continue to preside
ever Executive Council when present in
the Colony and the constitutional status of
Executive Council as advisory to the Gov-
ernor will remain unchanged.
The opportunity will be taken to make
a number of minor amendments to consti-
tutional documents and to clarify the
relationship between the Governor and
his Administrators.

HURRICANE REPORTS.
3. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will submit urgently to the Adminis-
trator his first rough Report as soon
as possible after the disaster. The
Report should give such information
as may be considered fairly accurate
and also an opinion as to the extent
of the disaster in those parts of the
district from which there are only
rumours, with an estimate of the pos-







OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JULY 31, 1950.

This report should also give a rough
estimate of loss of life, serious per-
sonal injury, damage to houses and
destruction of food crops and food sup-
plies, and number of individuals ren-
dered destitute.
4. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will send in further reports correct-
ing and amplifying the first report and
giving such details as are possible, as
soon as receipt of information justifies
his doing so; and he will continue to
send in daily or periodical reports, as
may be necessary, acting on his own
discretion.
5. The Officials of each District will
afford the District Hurricane Authority
all the information in their power,
with the least possible delay, in order
that the report may be full and com-
plete.
RELIEF.

ricane Authorities, Local Hurricane

follows :-

ston.

being difficult or impracticable, the
Local Hurricane Authority will report
direct to the Administrator.
9. Each District Authority will en-
deavour to keep in close touch with
the Local Hurricane Authorit:es in
the various areas in his District and,
in spite of there being no such vote,
will be justified in expending the
money urgently needed, whether for
special messenger or for food, without
awaiting the Administrator's authori-
ty, up to a limit of 5 for each Dis-
trict. Just as the Administrator will
authorise urgent expenditure in anti-
cipation of being able to justify it to
the Council and Secretary of State, so
the District Authorities may rely on
the refund of the sums they expend
without authority, provided that they
can show that the expenditure was
reasonable and the need for it urgent.
10. The Public who have suffered
loss or damage should apply to the
Local Hurricane Authorities in each
area and not come or send to the
Officials at Roseau.

ganizing of these measures the fol-
lowing CENTRAL HURRICANE RELIEF

NOTICE.


HURRICANE WARNING.

1. At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of
July, all shutters and fastenings should
be thoroughly overhauled and renewed
where necessary. In the case of de-
tached shutters identification marks
should be clearly painted on each, cor-
responding with the number and loca-
tion of each window.








OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JULY
13 1950


2. When barring up a house on
indications of bad weather or the ap-
proach of a hurricane-begin with the
side facing the direction of the pre-
vailing wind, which varies as a rule
from the North-West to North-East.
Should the centre happen to pass over
the island during the period of calm
the north side should be opened up
and the southern or westerly sides
closed. Very often, however, the
hurricane shifts directly from North-
East to South East with little or no
interval of relative calm, and under
such circumstances it is wise to have
every window securely fastened.
3. For the information of the public
generally it may be stated that a
special hurricane code is in use and
on the indication of a falling barometer
and prevailing hurricane symptoms,
mutual telegrams are interchanged:
this is supplemented by a voluntary
service by the Cable and Wireless
(West Indies Limited) who have kindly
undertaken to publish daily barome-
tric and other weather observations
from the observations from the neigh-
bouring islands.
DOMINICA. The following signal,
will be made from Fort Young, Roseau.
as a warning in event of probable ap-
proach of a hurricane or severe gales
CAUTIONARY SIGNAL.


S- .tJ 184
DANGER SIGNAL.
Two guns or rockets will be fired in
succession, and two red flags with
black centres will be hoisted by day
and two red lanterns by night.
When the signal is given, steps
should at once be taken to secure pre-
mises on shore and vessels in port
against impending danger.
CANCELLING SIGNAL.
On improvement of weather condi-
tions after either the Cautionary or
Danger Signals have been made, and
i is considered that the hurricane has
passed Dominica, a blue flag will be
hoisted.
With regard to Portsmouth, the
same signals will apply, the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted
