No. 4 of 1.51
BETWEEN
CHRISTOPHER ALEXANDER,
Appellant
AND
R. de la C. Ozanne,
(Superintendent of Police,)
Respondent
BEFORE MR. JUSTICE DATE
G. A. JAMES FOR THE APPELLANT
E ST. BERNARD (Acting Crown Attorney) FOR THE RESPONDENT.
The 31st day of August. 1951
DATE, J : ON the trd of May, 1951. a summons was served on the
appellant requiring him to appear at the Magistrate's Court at Grandbay on
21st May. 1951, to answer a charge of sealing a certain quantity of bets
d'[Ide and pois doux wood contrary to section 3) of the Small Charges Act
(Cap. 67.)
The appellant did not appear on 21st May when his name was called,
and the case was adjourned to the following day, wnhn there was again no
appearance by him. Evidence on oath was taken in his absence and he
was convicted and ordered to pay a fine of twelve dollars.
The trial Magistrate, however, now informs this Court that a few days
prior to the 21st of May the appellant handed him a letter which was not
opened until after the 22nd. That letter was from Mr. G.A. James, Bar-
rister-at-Law, informing the Magistrate that he had been retained .by the
appellant. The Magistrate also says that, in so far as sittings of his court
at Grandbay are concerned, it is a recognized practice not to take cases in
which counsel are retained on the same day as other cases, and that all
that counsel is required to do is to inform him that they have been retained
and special days are fixed for the hearing of those eases. It is not custom-
ary for the party retaining counsel to appear on the date mentioned in the
summons or even to apprise the other party that he has retained counsel.
That other party learns that his case will not be heard on the da e men-
tioned in the summons only when he appears in c-,urt with his witnesses;
and the question of the payment of his costs of the day is never considered.
The practice as it now stands is one which should be discontinued
forthwith. The Magistrate of the district has given me an assurance that
this will be done. Nevertheless, in so far as concerns the present case,
the order made by the Magistrate must be set aside and the case sent back
to the District Court for re-trial. I make no order for costs.

and Leeward Islands,

(Appellate Jurisdiction)
No. 3 of 1951.
BETwEEN
ELIAS NASSIEF Appellant
AND
SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE
Respondent
BEFORE MR. JUSTICE DATE.
C. A. H. DUPIGNY FOR APPELLANT
M. E. CHARLES FOR RESPONDENT.
The 31st day of August, 1951.
DATE, J.: THIS is an appeal against a decision of the Magistrate of
District "E" convicting the appellant for offering for sale on 12th Decem-
ber, 1950, certain goods enumerated in the Second Schedule to th, Prices
Control Order, 1947, IS. R. & O. No. 6 of 1947) at a higher percentage of
profit than that set out in the Schedule, contrary to section 5 of the said
Order as amended by S.R. & O's Nos. 50, 54 and 77 of 1947 and 25 of 1950.
The following grounds of appeal were filed cn behalf of the appellant:--
(a) That the Statutory Ru'es and Orders under which he was
charged were not in force at the time of the alleged offence,
(b) That the said Statutory Rules and Orders were not produced in
evidence.
At the hearing of the appeal, however, his counsel abandoned ground
(a) and elected to rely solely on (b).
The Magistrate's Notes of Evidence show that all the locally made S.
R.&O's involved were produced in evidence. The burden of the appellant's
complaint is that the Supplies and Services (Continuance) Order, 1950,
(Imperial) was not putin. That Order was made by His Majesty in Council
on 2nd November, 1950, and had the effect of continuing in force for a period
of one year the provisions of the Supplies and Services (Transitional Pow-
ers) Act, 1945, (Imperial) which would otherwise have expired on 10th
December, 1950. The Prices Control Order, 1947, alleged t, have been
contravened by the appellant, had been kept alive by virtue of the 1945
Imperial Act, as extended to this Colony by the Susplies ind Services
(Transitional Powers) (Colonies, etc ) Order in Council. 1946 and would
have expired on 10th December, 1950,- on the expiry of the 1945 Imperial
Act-- but for the enactment of the Supplies and Services (Continuance)
Order, 1950.
In support of his contention that the CoJirt cannot take judicial notice
of the Supplies and Services (Continuance) Order, 1950, counsel for the
appellant has referred to s. 12 of the Evidence Act, Cap. 52 (which pro-
vides that every document admissible in any C urt of Justice in England
shall be admissible in evidence in like manner, to the same extent, and for
the same purposes in any Court in this Colony,) and to the following pas-
sages appearing in Phipson on Evidence (eighth edition) at pp. 539 and 540:
"STATUTORY RULES. Statutory Rules are provable by production
of the Annual Volume of Statutory Rules and Orders, published by au-
thority, or by copies issued by the King's Printer (see Rules Publica-
tion Act, 1893 s. 3 (3) and Regulations 1894)
PROCLAMATIONS AND ORDERS IN COUNCIL. Royal procla-
mations, and orders and regulations issued by the Government. may
be proved, like other public documents, by the production of the
originals or by examined copies thereof.
In addition to these methods of proof, it is enacted by the Documen-
tary Evidence Act, 1868, s. 2, that prima facie evidence of an v pro-
clamation. order, or regulation issued before or after the passing of
this Act, by or under the authority in the first column of the schedule
hereto, may be given in all courts of justice and in all legal proceed-
ings whatsoever, in all or any of the modes hereinafter mentioned;
that is to say:
(1) By the production of a copy of the Gazette purporting to contain
such proclamation, order, or regulation........................ ........

(3) By the production, in the case of any proclamation, order, or
regulation issued by His Majesty or by the Privy Council, of a copy or








OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1953.


extract purporting to be certified to be true by the Clerk of the Privy Coun-
cil, or by any one of the Lords or others of the Privy Council, and, in the
case of any proclamation, order or regulation issued by or under the
authority of any of the said departments or officers, by the. production of a
copy or extract purporting to be certified to be true by the person or persons
specified in the second column of the said schedule in connection with such
department or officer. "
In note (c) on page 658 of Volume 13 of Halsbury Laws of England
:Hailsham Edition) it is stated that the Courts will not act on such procla-
mations, orders or regulations unless they are proved by a copy of the
Gazette or in one of the ways set out above.
The Laws of this Colony make their own provisions for proving pro-
c'amations, orders and regulations videe section 4 of the Gazette evidencee)
Act, ( ap. 54), but they do not provide for Courts taking judicial notice of
such documents. It seems therefore that the appellant is right in his con-
tention that the Supplies and Services (Continuance) Order, 1950, should
have been produced in evidence. I cannot agree with the respondent's
subrrission that the Order should not be regarded as subsidiary legislation
simply because of the words in pursuance of the said s action eight and
ot all other powers enabling him in that behalf" which appear in the pre-
amble to the Order. But this is by no means the first occasion on which
the omission to put in subsidiary legislation has had to be considered by an
appellate tribunal In the case of Uutfin v Markchum and Another, (1918)
88 L.J.K.B. 581, 'i6 Cox C.C. 308, certain charges were preferred against the
respondents for alleged offences under the Bread Order, 1917. After the
close of the case for the prosecution the objection was taken by the defence
that no proof of the Order had been given and therefore no conviction
could be recorded. The Justices upheld the objection and dismissed the
informations. On appeal it was held that although the case for the prose-
cution had been closed the Justices ought to have allowed the appellant to
prove the Order by putting in a stationery office copy of it, and if the ap-
pellant had no stationery office copy in Court the Justices should have ad-
journed the case to enable him to procure one. Mr. Justice Darling (as he
then was) considered the objection frivolous, and the case was remitted to
the Justices for further hearing and determination. Similar questions were
considered by Mr. Justice Cools-Lartigue in Green v. Bowery in 1946 and by
Mr. Justice Crane las he then was) in Brathwoaite r. Hill in 1947 in the Anti-
gua Circuit of this Court, and both of them adopted the course taken in
Dq.fn 'v. Mrlkh4At. I propose to do the same.
This case will be remitted to the Magistrate with the direction that he re-
open the case and give opportunity to the respondent to prove the Supplies
