hereby amended by the substitution of the of theinci-
following paragraphs for paragraphs (6) and (7) pal Ordinance,

No. of 1955. Interpretation of Laws 3 ANTIGUA.
(Amendment)
OBJECTS AND REASONS.


The definition of "Governor" inserted in the Principal
Ordinance by the amending Ordinance No. 16/1953 when
read with the last three lines of Article 9 (1) of the Letters
Patent of 1953 means that the Governor in Presidential
Legislation always means the Administrator, unless the
Governor of the Colony happens to be in the Presidency
and directs that the Administrator shall not administer the
Government. It was not intended that the Governor of
the Colony should be so completely excluded from the affairs
of the Presidency. The intention is that the Administrator
shall now exercise all the powers of the Governor subject to
the limitation imposed by Article 9 (6)(a) of the Leeward
Islands Letters Patent, 1953.

The definition of "Governor in Council" accords with
the intention that the Governor shall now act in accordance
with the advice of the Executive Council of the Presidency
save as otherwise provided in the instruments mentioned in
the definition. This change will take place on the coming
into operation of the Ministerial System in the Presidency.
The words but not necessarily in such Council
assembled" will enable decisions of Executive Council to be
taken by means of the circulation of papers.

These amendments have been made as a result of
suggestions made by the Secretary of State for the Colonies.

Crown Attorney.

Clerk of the Council.


OBJECTS AND REASONS.

The object of the Bill is to effect the necessary amend-
ments to the Principal Ordinance consequent on the introduc-
tion of the Ministerial System under which the Executive
Council will contain four members elected by the elected and
nominated members of the Legislative Council of whom three
will be charged with ministerial functions. The Executive
Council thus becomes the principal instrument of policy and
the elected members of ihe Executive Council are in a clear
majority since the Governor and the Administrator have only
a casting vote.
2. Clause 3 of the Bill provi.'es for the duration of the
life of the Legislative Council being extended from three to
five years as is usually the case in the more advanced constitu-
tions.
3. Clause 4 amends section 31 of the Principal Ordinance
which deals with the Governor's legislative reserved power.
Now that the Executive Council is the principal instrument of
policy, it is necessary to provide that the Governor shall not
invoke his reserved power without first submitting to the
Executive Council the question whether the power should be
used.








No. of 1955. Antigua Constitution and 5 ANTIGUA.
Elections (Amendment).
4. The amended Letters Patent provide that the
Governor or Administrator shall consult with the Executive
Council in the formulation of policy and in the exercise of all
functions conferred by any law except functions conferred by
any existing law when these functions are not required by the
law to be exercised by the Governor in Council. The Letters
Patent, however, exclude the Constitution and Elections Ordi-
nance from this provision. The result would therefore be that
the Governor or the Administrator would have to consult with
the Executive Council concerning the exercise of all the func-
tions conferred by the Ordinance. It is not, however, desirable
that the Governor or the Administrator should be required to
consult with the Executive Council with respect to the purely
administrative functions provided by the Ordinance. This
makes it necessary to amend the Ordinance specifically to pro-
vide that the Governor or the Administrator may act iq his
discretion when carrying out such administrative functions.
Clause 5 of the Bill seeks to effect this amendment and hence
it is that it mentions all those sections of the Principal Ordi-
nance which relate to such administrative functions.
