Notices.


BY THE GOVERNOR OF THE
LEEWARD ISLANDS.

A PROCLAMATION.

K. W. BLACKBURNE,
Governor.
WHEREAS by section 29 of the
Small Farmer Cultivation and Haul-
age Service Ordinance 1951 (No. 2 of
1951) it is provided that the said
Ordinance shall come into operation
on a date to be fixed by the Governor
by proclamation published in the
Gazettp:
NOW THEREFORE, I, KENNETH
WILLIAM BLACKBURNE, a Companion
of the Most Distinguished Order of
Saint Michael and Saint George, an
Officer of the most Excellent Order
of the British Empire, Governor and
Commander in Chief in and over the
Colony of the Leeward Islands and
Vice Admiral of the same, do by this
my proclamation declare that the said
Ordinance shall come into operation
on the 8th day of August, 1951.
AND All His Majesty's loving sub-
jects in the Presidency of Antigua
and all others are hereby required to
take due notice hereof and to give
their ready obedience accordingly.

GIVEN at the Government House,
Antigua, this 1st day of August,
1951, in the fifteenth year of
His Majesty's reign.

GOD SAVE THE KING!

BRITISH CARIBBEAN
CURRENCY BOARD.
On the 1st of August, 1951, the
Currency Act, 1950, was brought into
effect by Proclamation in so far as it
relates to currency notes.
2. Circulation of new British
Caribbean currency notes will com-
mence on 15th August, 1951, and
specimens of these notes are on
display at Messrs Barclays Bank
(D.C.& 0.) and the Royal Bank of
Canada in the Presidencies of Anti-
gua, St. Kt ts-Nevis and Montserrat.

These notes will lie legal tender
throughout the Eastern Group of the
Britisli Caribbean Territories viz.-
Barbados, British Guiana, Trinidad,
the Leeward and Windward Islands.

3. Currency notes issued by the
Governments of Barbados, British
Guiana and Trinidad, in circulation
at present, will continue to be legal
tender in those three (3) Colonies,
notwithstanding the new issue of
British Caiibbean currency notes.
Similarly currency notes issued by
the Government of Trinidad will con-
tinue to be legal tender in the Lee-
ward and Windward Islands.

4. It is important that the
public should realise that the
new issue of British Caribbean
currency notes in no way affects
the validity of Trinidad, Barba-
dos, or British Guiana currency
notes which remain legal ten-
der as stated in para. 3 above,
until tlhey are demonetized by Proc-
lamation issued by the Governors of
those Colonies under the Currency
Act, 1950, which action will not be
taken until a few years have elapsed,
and a comparatively small number of
these notes remain in circulation.
Even after demonetization the holders
of any such notes will be entitled at
any time to claim payment of the face
value thereof from the British Carib-
bean Currency Board.
5. Currency notes issued by
the Government of Trinidad
and Tobago should therefore
continue to be accepted as legal
tender in payment of any sum,
until or unless they are demonetized
when payment of the face value may
be claimed from the British Caribbean
Currency Board only.

PRICE CONTROL.

In order to reduce the number of
notices on the above subject Govern-
ment has decided to reduce the
number of imported items in which
the actual controlled price is stated.


A new comprehensive order has,
therefore, been issued. It should be
noted, however, that this does not
mean that the price of any foodstuffs
which were formerly controlled are
now de-controlled. The profit (o all
other imported foodstuffs is limited
to 8% wholesale and 16% retail and
any purchasers who suspect that they
are being charged more should c< n-
suit the Police or the Supply Officer.
