The subsidiary legislation of the Colony has been divided into four Parts.

Part I contains the subsidiary legislation made under local Acts and
Ordinances, Part II the subsidiary legislation made under Imperial Acts, Imperial
Orders in Council and Royal Warrants, Part III the subsidiary legislation made
in the exercise of the Royal Prerogative, and Part IV certain subsidiary legislation
made under an Ordinance which has been repealed. This legislation has, however,
been saved by the repealing Ordinance.

An Appendix has been attached to the subsidiary legislation and it contains
certain Imperial legislation applicable to the Colony.

come to the knowledge of the debtor, or that he wilfully evades service, an order
may be made as if personal service had been effected, upon such terms as to the
Judge may seem fit.

4. PROOF OF MEANS. Proof of means of the debtor shall, whenever
practicable, be given by affidavit, but if it appears to the Judge, either before

person, or the production of any document, is necessary or expedient, an order
may be made commanding the attendance of any such person before the Judge
at a time and place to be therein mentioned, for the purpose of being examined
on oath touching the matter in question, (or, and) for the production of any such
document, subject to such terms and conditions as to the Judge may seem fit.
The disobedience to any such order shall be deemed a contempt of Court and
punishable accordingly.

ACT.




1. SHORT TITLE. These Rules may be cited as the Juvenile Courts Pro-
cedure Rules.


2. PROCEDURE IN JUVENILE COURTS. (1) Where a child or young person
is brought before a juvenile court it shall be the duty of the court to explain to
him in simple language the substance of the alleged offence.
(2) After explaining the substance of the alleged offence the court shall
ask the child or young person whether he admits the offence.
(3) If the child or young person does not admit the offence the court shall
then hear the evidence of the witnesses in support thereof. At the close of the
evidence in chief of each such witness the court shall ask the child or young
person, or if it sees fit the child's parent or guardian, whether he wishes to put
any questions to the witness. If the child or young person instead of asking ques-
tions wishes to make a statement he shall be allowed to do so. It shall be the duty
of the court to put to the witnesses such questions as appear to be necessary.
The court may put to the child or young person such questions as may be nec-
essary to explain anything in the statement of the child or young person.
(4) If it appears to the court that a prima facie case is made out, the evi-
dence of any witnesses for the defence shall be heard, and the child or young
person shall be allowed to give evidence or to make any statement.
(5) If the child or young person admits the offence or the court is satisfied
that it is proved, he shall then be asked if he desires to say anything in extenuation
or mitigation of the penalty or otherwise. Before deciding how to deal with him
the court shall obtain such information as to his general conduct, home surround-
ings, school record, and medical history, as may enable it to deal with the case
in the best interests of the child or young person and may put to him any question
arising out of such information. For the purpose of obtaining such information
or for special medical examination or observation the court may from time to
time remand the child or young person on bail or in custody.








22 CAPS. 43-45)


(6) If the child or young person admits the offence or the court is satisfied
that it is proved and the court decides that a remand is necessary for purposes
of enquiry or observation, the court may cause an entry to be made in the court
register that the charge is proved and that the child or young person has been
remanded. The court before which a child or young person so remanded is
brought may without further proof of the commission of the offence make any
order in respect of the child or young person which could have been made by
the court which so remanded the child or young person.

released; and if the defendant has not already entered into his recognizance, the
Superintentent shall take his recognizance and discharge him, if held for that
cause and no other.

41A in the Schedule (hereinafter called a summons to a defaulting debtor)
has been served on the judgment debtor.




Magistrate's Code of Procedure. (CAP. 48 29


22. SERVICE OF JUDGMENT SUMMONS AND SUMMONS TO DEFAULTING
DEBTOR. A judgment summons or summons to a defaulting debtor shall, when-
ever it is practicable, be served personally on the judgment debtor or defaulting
debtor, as the case may be, but if it is made to appear on oath to the Court that
prompt personal service is for any reason impracticable, the Court may make
such order for substituted or other service as the Court may think just.


23. ISSUE AND PROOF OF SERVICE OF JUDGMENT SUMMONS. A judgment
summons may issue although no execution has been applied for, and its service,
where made out of the jurisdiction of the Court issuing the summons, may be
proved by affidavit or solemn declaration.


24. TIME OF SERVICE. A judgment summons or summons to a defaulting
debtor shall be served not less than two clear days before the day on which the
judgment debtor or defaulting debtor, as the case may be, is required to appear.


25. ADJOURNMENT AND SUSPENSION. On the hearing of a judgment
summons the Magistrate may adjourn the same from time to time either un-
conditionally or on such conditions as to payment of the judgment debt
immediately or at such times as he may order, and in the event of his making
a commitment order may direct the issue of the same to be suspended for such
time as he shall think fit, but such order of suspension though minuted shall not
appear on the face of the order of commitment.


26. WITNESSES ON JUDGMENT SUMMONS. Any witness may be summoned
to prove the means of the judgment debtor whether on the hearing of a judgment
summons or on an application for the variation of an order of commitment in the
same manner as witnesses are summoned to give evidence on the hearing or a
complaint.


27. VARIATION OF ORDER. (1) Where an order of commitment after
proof of means and ability to pay has been made for the payment of a judgment
debt and costs, or by instalments and it appears to the satisfaction of the
Magistrate that the judgment debtor liable under the order of commitment is
unable to pay the sum ordered to be paid at the time or by the instalments
ordered, he may, on the application of such judgment debtor made on complaint
served on the judgment creditor seven days at least before the hearing of the
application, order the amount due and unpaid under the order of commitment




CAP. 48) Magistrate's Code of Procedure.


to be paid by instalments, or, if already payable by instalments by smaller
instalments, and may from time to time vary such order.

(2) In like manner, if it happens to the satisfaction of the Magistrate that
the judgment debtor liable under such order of commitment is able to pay the
sum ordered to be paid either in one sum or by larger instalments than those
ordered he may on the application of the judgment creditor made on the like
complaint served on the judgment debtor, order the amount due and unpaid
to be paid in one sum, or by larger instalments than those previously ordered,
and may from time to time vary such order.


28. DATE OF ORDER OF COMMITMENT. An order of commitment made
under section 153 of the Act, shall, on whatever day it is issued, bear the date
of the day on which it was made.


29. PAYMENT OF DEBT AFTER COMMITMENT. When an order for commit-
ment is made the judgment debtor may at any time pay the amount due by
him (including the costs, if any, of conveying him to prison) to the bailiff, or
the Superintendent of the prison, holding the order, who shall forthwith pay
over the sums so received by him to the Magistrate or the Magistrate's clerk, or
such sums as aforesaid may be paid to the Magistrate or the Magistrate's clerk,
who shall in each of the before mentioned cases sign a certificate of the
payment.


30. RELEASE OF JUDGMENT DEBTOR. Where the bailiff, or the
Superintendent of the prison, holding the order receives payment as aforesaid or
receives such certificate as aforesaid, the judgment debtor shall be forthwith
released by him.


31. COSTS OF JUDGMENT CREDITOR IN ENFORCING ORDER. All costs
incurred by the judgment creditor in endeavouring to enforce an order shall,
unless the Court shall otherwise order, be deemed to be due in pursuance of the
order, as if it were made under section 4 of the Debtors Act.


32. RELIEF OF OFFICER OF COURT, &C., FROM DUTIES UNDER ORDER.
When an order has been made by a Magistrate for periodical payments of money
to be made through an officer of the Court or through any other person or officer,
if complaint is made by such officer or other person that the person on whose
behalf the money is ordered to be paid has persistently received the payments





Magistrate's Code of Procedure.


(CAP. 48 31


required under the order direct from the person liable to make the payments,
the Magistrate may, upon proof thereof, make an order relieving him of his duty
under the first mentioned order and requiring that payment be made direct:

Provided also that any such relieving order may be made, without formal
complaint being laid at the hearing of any application to enforce the first-
mentioned order, if both parties are present.


33. CERTIFICATE OF IMPRISONMENT FOR BASTARDY ARREARS. For the
purposes of section 125 (2) of the Act, when a person is imprisoned in pro-
ceedings for the enforcement of an order in any matter of bastardy or of an
order enforceable as an order of affiliation, the Superintendent of the prison
shall, upon his discharge, send to the clerk of the Magistrate issuing the commit-
ment a certificate showing the dates of his reception into prison and discharge
therefrom, and also remit therewith any payment received by him under the
commitment, and the clerk of the Magistrate, if payments under the order have
been ordered by the Magistrate to be made through an officer of the Court or
other person or officer, shall forward such certificate and any payment so
remitted to that officer or person.


34. APPLICATION FOR SPECIAL CASE. An application to a Magistrate
under section 169 of the Act to state a special case shall be made in writing
in the form numbered 45A in the Schedule and the case shall be stated within
a month after the date of the application, and after the recognizance shall have
been entered into.


35. DRAWING UP CONVICTIONS. Formal convictions giving the decisions
of the Court shall not be drawn up unless required for an appeal or some other
legal purpose. When it is necessary for such purpose to draw up a conviction
