EXPLANATORY NOTE.

(This Note is not Part of the Order, but is intended to indicate its general purport.)

It is essential, in order that the -new Saint Vincent constitution should be
brought into force as early as possible this year, that provisions for elections to
the new Legislature should be made by local legislation very shortly. It would
not, however, be constitutionally proper that such legislation should be enacted
by the existing Saint Vincent Legislature in advance of the new constitutional
instruments without special enabling provision made by Order in Council. This
Order makes the necessary provision and gives the required powers to the existing
Legislature.
