BY THE GOVERNOR OF THE
LEEWARD ISLANDS.

A PROCLAMATION.
BALDWIN OF BEWDLEY,
Governor.

WHEREAS under section 3 of
the Cotton Protection Ordinance
1922 (No. 7/1922), as amended by the
Cotton Protection Amendment Ordi-
nance, 1926 (No. 5 of 1926), it is pro-
vided that the Governor-in-Council
may from time to time by proclama-
tion published in the Gazette declare
any period of each year to be a close
season for cotton and for such other
plants as may be specified in any
such proclmantin either for the whole
Presidency or for such area or areas
thereof as may be specified in such
proclamation:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, OLIVER
RIDSDALE. the Earl Baldwin of
Bewdley, Governor and Commander
in Chief in and over the Colony of
the Leeward Islands and Vice Admiral
of the same, with the advice of the
Executive Council of the Presidency
of Antigua, do, by this my proclama-
tion declare that the period from the
1st day of June, 1950, to the 31st day
of August, 1950, inclusive, shall be
a close season within the meaning of
the said Ordinance for the whole
Presidency of Antigua:
AND I do hereby order all occu-
piers of land, in pursuance of the said
Ordinance, completely to uproot and
burn all cotton and okra plants and
all or any portion of the same grow-
ing or remaining on any such land
occupied by them before the first day
of the said close season:
AND I do further declare that any
person who sows or plants or causes
to be sown or planted any cotton or
okra in any part of the said Presiden-
cy during the said close season shall
be guilty of an offence under the said
Ordinance.
GIVEN at the Government House,
Antigua, this 2nd day of May,
1950, in the fourteenth year of
His Majesty's reign.

GOD. SAVE THE KING!


Method of Selection of Dele-
gates to the West Indian Con-
ference.
The Caribbean Commission Agree-
ment lays it down that delegates to
the West Indian Conference shall be
appointed for each territory in accord-
ance with its constitutional procedure.
Hitherto, the arrangement has been
that of the two delegates from each of
the British Colonies concerned, one is
an unofficial chosen by the local Legis-
lature (in the case of the Leeward
Islands by the General Legislative
Council), and the other an official
nominated by the Governor.
To make it possible for the Legisla-
ture in each Colony to determine the
representation of the Colony at this
Conference, it has been suggested that
the present method of appointment
should be modified by leaving it to
the discretion of the local Legislatures
to decide whether there should be one
or two unofficial.
The suggestion has been accepted
by West Indian Government and,
with the concurrence of the Secretary
of State, is being adopted for the next
session of the West Indian Conference
in 1950 and for succeeding sessions.
