In the Supreme Court of the Windward IslanTs and
(1952, No. 3-SAINT CHRISTOPHER.)
R1,LP'H HERBERT ilppllant
J. A. PROWNE (peri his Iaent J. CLAXTON) hRespondent.
The appellant was a weekly tenant of the respondent. His rent was considerably in arrear and
on the 5th December, 1951, lie was served with a notice to (uit on the 12th December, 1951. lie refused
to deliver up possession on that or on any later date; and the respondent sued him for possession and
arrears of rent in the Magistrate's Court. He was ordered to deliver up possession of the premises and
to pay the arrears of rent due and costs. From this order he has appealed.
2. The only ground of appeal is concerned with the sufficiency of the notice to quit. Section
22 of the Small Tenements Act enacts
Where there is no agreement as to notice]by deed or in writing between the' parties the
following provisions shall take effect
(a) In the case of a monthly tenancy or a tenancy for a shorter term than one
month, a clear week's notice shall be given."
3. In the Court below Mr. Kelsick, for the appellant, had urged that a clear week's notice had
not been given. His submission was over-ruled by the learned Magistrate. He has taken the same
point now on appeal and cited the authority Queen's Club Gardens Estates Ltd. v. Bignell 1924, 1 K.B.,
117. It was held in that case that the notice to quit must be one which expires at the end of a periodic
week from the commencement of the tenancy. This however, is not the law in the Leeward Islands.
Section 23 of the Small Tenements Act enacts that it shall not be necessary that a notice to quit under
the last preceding section should expire at the end of the current term of the tenancy but it may be given
at any time." Mr. Kelsick conceded this point; but urged that a notice served in December 5th to
deliver up possession on Deceanber 12th was not a clear week's notice.
4. Mr. G. R. Boon, for the respondent, said that the appellant had up till mid-night in Decem-
ber 12th to deliver up possession and that this was a clear week's notice. He did not cite any authority.
5 Newman v. Slade, 1926, 2 K.B., :.2, decided that in a weekly tenancy a notice of seven
clear days was not required. The tenancy in question was a Monday to Monday tenancy and the landlord
purported to determine it by a notice given on Monday, February 8th, to quit on Monday February 15th.
The notice was held to be good. Having reviewed the authorities Salter, J., said I think that, both on
principle and on authority, we must hold that in the case of a tenancy from week to week, where no
contrary intention appears, a notice given on the day corresponding to that on which the tenmncy com-
menced and expiring in the c: responding day of the following week is good." The learned Judge was
dealing with English li: as laid down in the Queen's Club case (supra); but he clearly laid (lown the
principle that in the case of a weekly tenancy a notice given on Monday to deliver possession on the
following Monday is sufficient.
6. This authority supports Mr. Boon so far as what is meant by a week's notice and the only
question is whether the words a clear week's notice in section 22 of the Small Tenements Act create
any difference; that is, whether the word clear operates to extend the period. If one turns again to
Newman v. Slade (supra); it will be seen that the Court held that seven clear days notice was not
required. This can only mean that the Court was of opinion that a notice given on Monday to deliver
possession on the following Monday was not a notice of seven clear days." And in Wharton's Law
Lexicon, 9th Ed., at p. 143 ii is stated If a certain number of clear days be given for the doing of any
act, the time is to be reckoned exclusively as well of the first day as the last That is, a notice given
on the 5th l)ecember to deliver possession on the 12th December is not seven clear days' notice, but only
six clear days' notice, and therefore not a clear week's notice as required by the Small Tenements Act.
The report in Weston v. Fidler 88 L.T. 769 is not available here; but from the summary in 11 Mew's
Digestat p. 1218 it appears to halve been held that a notice given at 10 a.m. on November 17th to expire
on November 24th was not a good notice. The summary contains the words A week's notice is seven
clear days and the law does not take notice of the fraction of a day." In Newman v. Slade (supra)
-S8 Augrust, 19,52.]
THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE.
Salter, J, d;tin uished this authority on the ground of its particular facts, namely, that the agreement
between thf parties was that the tenancy was to expire before noon on the relevant day, and that there-
fore the tepantdid not have the whole of the day for which notice was given.
7 The conclusion to he drawn from the authorities is that at common law a week's notice is
sufficient :~d that a week does nut '.can 7 clear days. A notice given on tie 5i of the imoithl to deliver
possession )n the 12th i.s sufficienti according to the common law, unless ther-e ee particular facts, as in
Weston v. Fidler (supra). But here there is a loc.il law over-ri(cingf the c-~oimcu: law, and it enacts that
the noticerequired is a clear week's notice in all cases to which the Small Tenements Act is applicable.
The Act applies in this case; the rent hcing under 20 per annum, The word clear must he given a
meaning : a clear week means a clear 7 days; that is the day in which notice is received and the day on
which possession is required must both be excluded. The consequence is that the notice in this action must
be held to be insufficient. The order of the learned M:gistrate will be varied by 'eleting the order to give
and deliver up possession. The order as to payment of $24 arrears of rent is ailirmed-as to costs below
the amount of $9.60 will be altered to $4.80. 'he appellant will have the costs of this appeal, fixed at

1952-No. 5-SAINT CHRISTOPHER.
CLARENCE WILLIAM WALTON Appellant
HENRY T1HOMPSON Respondent.
On the 20th January, 1952, the appellant used a motor car belonging to the respondent. The
car, on being examined by the respondent after the appellant had used it was found to be mechanically
out of order and it cost the respondent $48 to have it restored to running order. The respondent sued
the appellant in the Magistrate's Court for this sum as damages for trespass. Judgment was given
against the appellant for the amount claimed.
In the Court below the appellant had given evidence that he had used the car with the respon-
dent's permission and that consequently there could have been no trespass. The respondent had denied
this; and the learned Magistrate found in his favour. The same point has now been raised by the appel-
lant on appeal. There was evidence to justify the finding of the learned Magistrate and this point must
be denied against the appellant.
The only other ground of appeal argued by the appellant was that the car was worth $12 only,
having previously been sold for this sum by him to the respondent; and that $48 was a preposterous
amount of damages in the circumstances. There was evidence that the car damaged was not the actual
car sold to the respondent, but a composite car made up of that car and another one. Apart from that,
the learned Magistrate had found that the damage occurred during the time the appellant was in control;
and whatever may have been the terms on which the respondent obtained it, he is entitled to the expense
incurred in restoring it to the condition of efficiency in which it was when wrongfully taken possession of
by the appellant.
The decision of the learned Magistrate is affirmed.
The appeal is dismissed with costs fixed at $15.12.
