THURSDAY, 13TH MAY, 1954.


Notices.


The Merchant Shipping (Foreign
Deserters) (Kingdom of Greece) Or-
der, 1954, No. 144 made on the 10th
February, 1954, is hereby published
for general information.

The Order supersedes, and accord-
ingly revokes, the Order in Council
made on the 12th July, 1887 (publish-
ed in the issue of the Leeward Islands
Gazette, dated the 15th September,
1887), and thus modifies the mutual
arrangements with Greece for the
apprehension of seamen deserters by
certain limitations which are set out
in Clause 3 of the above-mentioned
Order.

The Secretariat,
Le6ward Islands,
At Antigua.
5th May, 1954.

It is hereby notified for general
information that His Excellency the
Governor has refused his assent to the
Antigua Crown Proceedings (General
Legislature Competency) Ordinance,
1954, which was passed by the Anti-
gua Legislative Council on the 23rd
March, 1954.

2. The circumstances of the Gov-
ernor's refusal to assent are as follows.
It was originally proposed that federal
Crown Proceedings legislation should
be enacted by the General Legislative
Council. To enable this to be done,
the Presidential Legislatures were
invited to pass legislation giving the
Federal Government competency in
this respect. Such legislation was
passed by the Antigua Legislature,
but subsequently one of the Presi-
dential Governments decided that it
preferred not to give the Federal Gov-
ernment competency in this matter.
In the circumstances, the only prac-
ticable course is to enact Crown Pro-
ceedings legislation on a presidential
basis, and the Presidential Legisla-
tures are being invited to take action
accordingly.

3. As action is now to be taken
on a Presidential basis, no useful
purpose would be served by the
Governor assenting to the Antigua
Competency Ordinance mentioned
above.


4. The Governor desires to express
his regret to the Antigua Legislative
Council that they should have been
put to the unnecessary trouble of
passing this legislation.

The Secretariat,
