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-
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.
RELIEF.

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

7. These Local Hurricane Authori-
ties will take emergency measures for
affording relief and will report as soon
as possible to the District Hurricane
Authority.
8. In the event of communication
with the District Hurricane Authority
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 in each
area and not come or send to the
Officials at Roseau.

ganizing of these measures the fol-
lowing CENTRAL HURRICANE RELIEF

The HON. FINANCIAL SECRETARY
The Hon. J.O. AIRD
The DIRECTOR OF WORKS
The SOCIAL WELFARE OFFICEt
The Very Revd. the Dean of Roseau
The Rector, St. Georges Church
The Methodist Superintendent
Minister, Roseau.

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.
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.
DOMINICA.
The following signal will be made
from Fort Young, Roseau, as a warn-








OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY,

a red lantern by night.
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.

same signals will apply, the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted

lished for general information :-

19th August, 1953.


SDAY, AUGUST 27, 1953

The Conference devoted considerable
time to assessing the part played by suc-
cessive Oils and Fats Agreements during
the past decade. It was agreed that these
arrangement had proved of great value
in building an important regional indus-
try and that policy should be directed to
continuing measures of protection to
ensure that both producers of coconuts
and processors should continue to enjoy
reasonable measures o* protection in
future, due regard being paid to the
interests of consumers.
The Conference recognized that the
time would soon come when it would not
be acceptable to achieve this protection
by means of existing emergency regula-
tions. The Conflelence therlfore tecOlm-
mended that Governments should work
out acceptable replacing legislation, uni-
form in its provisions, based mainly on
protection by tariffs against outside com-
petition but working towards free trade
within the area in coconuts and de ived
.products The Conference decided to ask
for the support of Her Majesty's Govern-
ment in implementing this policy and in
framing suitable legislation.
The Conference agreed that a fair
average price for crude coconut oil cor-
responding to the basic price of copra
would be $2 20 (B. W. 1.) f. o. b. per im.
perial gallon.
The Conference further agreed that
since the region as a whole was deficient
in supplies of copra, no true surplus could
be held to exist at this stage although
locally supplies might accumulate tempo-
rarily. It was agreed that these local
supplies might be disposed of within the
region and the output of processing
plants adjusted to local markets.

CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES
The Minutes of the Meeting held on April 30th, 1953, having
been circulated, were taken as read and confirmed.
DEPOSIT TO C.D.C. BY CONSUMERS OF ELECTRIC
CURRENT
Mr. Winston enquired of His Honour whether there was in
the contract to supply electric current any reference to the re.
quirement to pay a deposit such as was being imposed by the
Colonial Development Corporation.
His Honour replied in the negative and added that it was
not on that account illegal. It was, he said, standard public
utility practice.
His Honour also informed the Committee that he proposed
that the "appo'nted-day" as defined in the Hydro-Electric
Agreement, should be June 15th.
REPORT OF SALARIES COMMISSIONER
His Honour threw open to discussion the Report of the
Salaries Revision Commissioner, which had been previously cir.
culated. After a full discussion, during which His Honour








informed the Committee of the Secretary of State's comments on
the Report, it was agreed to appoint a sub-committee consisting
of:
The Honourable C. J. L. DUPIGNY
G. AUSTIN WINSTON
t,, R. B. DOUGLAS
SF. 0. C. HARRIS
N. A. JEFFERS
to make recommendations for an upward revision of the salaries
proposed for posts whose holders receive less than 300 a year.
Mr. W. O. Severin, Clerk of Council was appointed Clerk of
the Sub-Committee.
VARIATION IN COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT AND WELFARE
PUBLIC WORKS STAFF SCHEME
The Committee agreed to the variation in the Colonial Devel-
opment and Welfare Public Works Staff Scheme as proposed by
His Honour to allow of the employment of a private surveyor to
carry out the survey of the Windward Coast Road. This ar-
rangement has been rendered necessary by the failure to obtain
a suitable candidate to fill the post of surveyor on contract
provided for in the Scheme.
SUPPLY OF PLANTS
His Honour promised to circulate the latest report on the
supply of plants by the Agricultural Department to Members.
SPECIAL WARRANT
Head No. Sub-Head Amount

1,000 towards the setting up of a revolving fund for the pur-
pose of purchasing fisheries equipment for resale to fisherman,
free of profit.
