No. 203
GOVERNOR'S APPEAL FOR FUNDS
FOR WESTMINSTER ABBEY
THE Prime Minister has launched an
appeal for one million pounds for the
repair, preservation and upkeep of West-
minster Abbey. The Abbey is one of the
world's great churches. In it our Queen
was crowned on June 2nd as Kings and
Queens have-been crowned there for centu-
ries. It is a shrine where generations of
famous men are buried or commemorated.
It stands near the Houses of Parliament
at the centre of the Commonwealth, and
long ago the House of Commons used to
meet in the Abbey Chapter House.
In this Coronation Year, when we here
are also looking forward to a British
Caribbean Federation as an increasingly
important part of the Commonwealth, the
appeal has been launched to ensure that
the Abbey, which has fostered much that
is best in western civilisation, should be
passed on worthily to the future. I ask all
of you who can help with some gift, how.
ever small it may be, to make your contri-
bution.
Subscriptions should be lodged at
Barclays Bank and marked Westminster
Abbey Appeal Fund.

as possible after the disaster. The

No. 48









195 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1953


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-
sible requirements in the way of relief.
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.

ricane Authorities, Local Hurricane
Authorities have been appointed as
follows :-
WESTERN DISTRICT.

Priests, The Honourable Austin Win-
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 Authorities 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 10 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 ih each
area and not come or send to the
Officials at Roseau.

Minister, Roseau.

NOTICE.

HURRICANE WARNING.

1. At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1953.


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.
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 warn-
ing in event of probable approach of a
hurricane or severe gales
CAUTIONARY SIGNAL.

any time of the day or night, and a
red flag having a black centre will be
hoisted on the signal staff by day, and

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
it 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
at the Police Station, Portsmouth.

CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES
THE Minutes of the meeting held on February 24th, 1953
having been circulated and laid, were taken as read and con.
firmed.
WELCOME TO ACTING FINANCIAL SECRETARY
His Honour welcomed Mr. Josse, the Acting Financial Se-
cretary, to the meeting.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION PRIOR TO CONSIDERATION
@F SPECIAL WARRANTS
In view of the undertaking previously given that every
effort would be made during the current year to keep supplemen-
tary expenditure down to as low a level as possible, His Honour
gave the following information to the Committee to serve as
background against which the Special Warrants about to be con-
sidered should be viewed:









His Honour said that savings on the approved Estimates
amounting to at least $33,000, would be effected, owing, on the
one hand, to the inevitable delay in filling certain posts such as
those of Colonial Accountant, Superintendent of Police, and
Special Grade Clerk (Government Office), and on the other, to the
possibility of avoiding or deferring expenditure on certain items
such as those providing for the dismantling of the Ice Plant and
the building of a Police Station at St. Joseph. Moreover, unan-
ticipated revenue, estimated at $30,000, would be derived from
such sources as the sale of the Ice Plant and Generator, and
from the collection of standing arrears of revenue towards which
a vigorous effort would be made.
1210/48 COLA TO NON-RESIDENT PENSIONERS
The Committee approved the supplementary expenditure,
estimated at $6,000.00, involved in the decision taken by the
Executive Council to pay COLA to non-resident pensioners at the
following rates:--
(a) On the first $288 -66%
(b) On the balance up to a maximum of $576 .p.a.
(i.e. the next $288) -20%
as from January 1st, 1953.
C155/52 GOVERNOR'S EMOLUMENTS
The Committee reconsidered the question of increased
emoluments to the Governor and accepted the following figures
for which the prior approval of the Secretary of State had already
been signified:-


Salary 2,750
Duty Allowance 1,000
The additional cost to this Colony will be 120.

1615/50 COMPLETION OF THE GIRAUDEL ROAD
The Committee accepted the proposal, made by His Honour
at the meeting of February 24th, that the sum of 5,396 required
to enable the Giraudel-Eggleston road to be completed according
to plan, should be found by savings to be created from prov siorn
for the Clark Hall--Holmwood road, to the extent of 3,000 and,
to the extent of the remainder, by recourse to the Colony's
reserve under the Col nial Levelopment and Welfare allocation,
and as regards the latter, agreed that the appropriate application
to the Secretary of State should be made.
769/51 AIR-SERVICE LAUNCH
His Honour brought to the attention of the Committee the
scr.ous repercussions the frequent breakdowns of the crash
launch might have on the air service of this Colony and suggested
that the remedy lay in obtaining a second launch. His Honour
proposed that this might be done by one of two ways--either by
the outright purchase of a new launch, which, from information
received from the Crown Agents, would cost about 8 000. or by
an approach to the Secretary of State for approval to cause the St.
Vincent crash launch which was comparatively superfluous t3
that Colony under the conditions obtaining there. to be transfer-
red to this Colony almost free of charge. After some discussion
and on being assured that there was no intention of maintaining
more than one crew for both launches, the Committee accepted
the second alternative, which His Honour promised to pursue.
802/50 ADDITIONAL PILFEIRAGE OF GOODS IN CUSTOMS
Mr. Aird complained that goods entering the Customs already
pilfered were subjected to further pilferage during storage there,
and asked His Honour to investigate this.
His Honour promised to do so.
DEPOSIT TO COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
BY CONSUMERS TO SECURE SUPPLY OF ELECTRIC CUR-
RENT.
Mr. Shillingford said that he thought that the requirement
to deposit $7.00 with the Colonial Development Corporation as a
condition for obtaining a supply of electric current would cause
hardship to poor people.








His Honour informed the Committee that he had in fact been
informed by Messrs. Roddam and Hargreaves of the Corporation
that this amount would be accepted by instalments and that it
would bear interest at the rate of 4% -a fact which did not seem
to be widely known.
His Honour also told members that the Electricity Rules
would be placed before the Legislative Council at the first oppor-
tunity.
WATER SUPPLY ST. JOSEPH
Mr. Shillingford asked His Honour to consider extending the
St. Joseph Water Supply up the hillside where, he claimed, more
people lived than in the village proper.
His Honour promised to look into that.
