No. 574.
SMUGGLING.

During the course of the various dis-
cussions which took place within recent
weeks at meetings both of the unofficial
Committee appointed to consider ways
and nlmeans of raising additional revenue
and of the Finance Committee consider-


ing the Colony's Budget for 1951, atten-
tion was drawn to the widespread smug-
gling into the Colony of articles particu-
larly of liquor and cigarettes with the
consequent loss to revenue of possibly
thousands of dollars.
The smuggling of livestock and local
produce out of the mainland to the
Grenadines so as to evade export con-
trols in Kingstown has apparently also-
grown to large proportions.
At this particular time when the
Colony is experiencing great difficulty
to balance its budget, this state of affairs-
can hardly be permitted to'continue
without check. It has therefore been
decided by Government to adopt in the
future stronger measures for the sup-
pression of smuggling. Apart from the
normal safeguards which will be
strengthened, it is proposed to offer to
anyone giving information leading to
the discovery of uncustomed goods 10%
of the proceeds of sale of the contraband
after its confiscation. Such information
can be communicated confidentially in
writing or otherwise to the Superinten-
dent of Police or to the Senior Customs
Officer, and the anonymity of persons
giving such information will be fully
respected.
If such persons should by any chance
require the assistance and use of a Gov-
ernment launch and of Police and Cus-
toms Guards personnel to enable them
to follow up reasonably reliable clues
leading to smuggling activity on the
beaches and coasts away from the
Kingstown wharf-front and in the-
Grenadines islets,-they should apply
accordingly to either of the two Officers
mentioned above who would of course
have to be satisfied with the bona fides,
of such applications before releasing the
launch and personnel.
Offenders against the laws relating to
smuggling of goods into and out of the
Colony, and those who hold uncustomed
goods without having receipts establish-
ing the payment of import duty on these
goods, are hereby warned that measures
against breaches of these laws will be
made much more effective than they are-
now.
