SPECIAL ISSUE OF COL-
ONIAL POSTAGE STAMPS
FOR CORONATION
To commemorate the coronation of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, arrangements
are being made for a special issue of
Colonial postage stamps to be placed on
sale on Coronation Day. The stamps will
remain on sale until the end of 1953 unless
stocks have previously been exhausted It
has been found necessary to restrict the
issue to a single value for each participa-
ting Administration in a design common
to all.
The design will consist of an approved
portrait of Her Majesty in a suitable
frame, and will include the coronation
date, the name of tne issuing territory
and the value. With certain exceptions,
the value will represent the postage


required on a local inland letter and the
colour will cTrrespond with that of the
current stamp of the same value. The
Portrait will be black on all stamps.
It will not be possible by the date of the
Coronation to replace all Colonial stamps
which bear the portrait of His late Majesty
King George VI with stamp bearing a
port ait of Her Majesty the Queen and
this special issue will ensure that the
peoples of the participating territories
will be able to see the Portrait of their
Queen on at least one stamp at the time
of the Coronation.
Full details of the territories participa-
ting, values and colours. etc., ill be
published in a subsequent Bulletin,

BRITISH CARIBBEAN CURRENCY
BOARD FORGED CURRENCY' NOTES
SEVERAL forgeries of British Caribbean
Currency Notes of the ten dollar denomi.
nation have been observed recently.
A note of the one dollar denomination
is altered to represent a ten dollar note.
The word "One" en the face of the note is
removed and the word "Ten" substituted
and the numeral "0" is added to the
numeral "1" in the corners of the note.
The colour of the one dollar note, which
is red, is also treated to make it similar
to the brown colour of the genuine ten
dollar note.
The public is advised to scrutinise the
word "Ten" and the numerals "10" as
well as the colour of ten dollar notes
before acceptance Careful scrutiny
will disclose the alterations that have
been made, if the note is not genuine,

NOTICE
IT is notified for general information
that the Roseau Town traffic control
scheme agreed upon by the Traffic Com-
mittee is being brought into operation
immediately.
The scheme is designed to simplify the
flow of traffic in and through the Town
and to make the streets as safe as possible
for all road users.
The traffic signs indicate where and in
which direction wheeled traffic may go
and where it is not permitted. A white
line painted longitudinally along the centre
of the road surface demarcates the
boundary between the lanes for traffic
moving in opposite directions: where such
lines are painted, traffic must keep strictly
within its proper lane, and there must be
NO OVERTAKING. A transverse white
line across a traffic lane marks entry to a
major road, along which traffic has
priority: ALL WHEELED VEHICLES
ARE REQUIRED TO STOP at a tranverse
white line and may not cross unless the
major road is clear of traffic or until it can
be entered safely without obstructing or
impeding any traffic proceeding along it in
either direction.

OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1952.


The success of the scheme will depend
on its careful and constant observance by
all.

from Wis Honour the Administrator rela-
tive to the Finances of the Roseau Town
Council and forwarding therein (a) coim.
ments by the Secretary of State, and (b)
the views of the Colonial Government
thereon.
The proposals as contained in Ilis lion-
our's communication were discussed in
detail and the decision of the Council was
as follows: -
(a) Rates o, G vernr~ient Buildiqs: --
"Governnai nt paying plates on its own
buildings- esunmated at about $1.000 per
annuio"
Mr. Grell was of the view that this pro-
posal should not be accepted as it was at
the muoime t contrary to the terms of the
Roseau 'own Connil Oirdii.ance, the value
of Government buildlrgs would be difli-
cult to assess and that tie acceptance of
tins offer mtay lead to complications in the
lutule.
Other Mfembbeis welcomed this proposal
but cut s;deltd that the n m.urt to be I aid
should be baned on the mental \alue a at
prtsett a etint-d on other pr erities. It
was recommended that :'choolb and build-
ings such as the f public Libiaiy, Victoria
Mueumn, RoseiLu lospiial anu Ike i oni-
nica Ithi mary should continue to be ex-
empt from taxes On the basis of r(ntil
value the amount to be paid by Govern-
ment to the Couitcil was assessed at
$2,170.00.
At present Covernnent paid no water
rate and it was not proposed that this
privilege be withdrawn.

the purpose of the Town Council on the
lines suggested."
The Council accepted Government's
proposal that Liquor. Trade, Professional,
Importers, Entertainment. Produce Deal-
ers Licences be increased 25%' and the
difference paid to the Council. It was
noted that the revenue which would ac-
crue to the Roseau Town Council under
this proposal would be approximately
$3.400.
Mr. Grell was of the view that as Gov
ernnent had taken "the jump" in the
collection of these Licences which in his
opinion belonged to the Municipality, the
Council should seek 20 % of the amount
derived from these licences.
(c) Increase in Town Council Rates:--
Proposed revision of following rates
and licences: -
"Water Rate 50"'; Sewer Rate 50'';
Baker's Licences-$2 40 to $4.80 p-r an-
num; Porters' Licences -increase to $2 00;
Milk Vendors' -rincrease 60c to $1.20;
Dance Licences increase 100%. It was
claimed that this measure would yield an
additional $2,895 "
The Council decided to amend the scale
of the Water Rate schedule to provide for
specific rates collectable on propel ties of a
rental value in excess of $24.00 per month.
(b) Sewerage Rate be increased by 25',
(c) Bakers' Licences be increased from
$2 40 to $5 00
(d) Milk Vendors' Licences from 60' to
$1.00
(e) Dance Licences increased by 100'0
The proposed increase in the Porters'
and Waterman's Licences was considered
unethical as this Licence was never consi-
dered by the Council as a source of Re_
venue but merely as a nominal charge to
facilitate the control of Jobbers on the
Water front and in the Town of Roseau.
Increase in these Town Council Bates
was estimated to yield an additional
$825.00.
Estimated Finan'.iual Position 19&':--
The Financial position during 1953 was
estimated as follows:-
1953 Revenue (based on 1952
Estimates) .$40,000
Add rates on certain Govern-
ment owned properties 2,170
Add portion of licences to be
paid to Town councill 3,400

creased Municipal rates 825

1952 Estimates)

Deficit 2,788

The Council decided that a revaluation
of properties in Roseau, which was over.
due, should be completed before January
1953. The Council was confident that the
estimated deficit of $2,788 would be ab.
sorbed.


Loan Programme:--The Council was
not in the position to state' a precise loan
program me as much depended on addi.
tional revenue when the revaluation of the
Town was completed.
Desired loan projects, however, weie:--
Thlee (3) Motoi Carts for garbage
collection
New Market
Town Council Office
Pavilion at Windsor Park
It was considered that the Market and
the Pavilion would b. partly self support-
ing. The use of Motor Carts would re-
duce the high cost of sanitation Actual
expenditure for upkeep of mules, carts
and harness during 1951 was $2,374 and
estimates for 1952 $2,401). An immediate
loan of $6.000 for the purchase of these
carts was requested.
App'i'ral of EIt'lYwtles: The supges-
lion that the Estimlates iof Ilhe Roseau 'fTown
