UNIFIED BRITISH WEST INDIES
CURRENCY.



The Currency Ordinance-No. 17 of
1950-which gives effect to the Agree-
ment by the Governments of the East-
ern Group of British Caribbean Territo-
ries for the establishment of a unified
system of currency notes and coins
comes into operation (as regards notes)
as from 1st August -next.
These Territories comprise the Colo-
nies of Barbados, British Guiana, The
Leeward Islands, Trinidad and Tobago
and the Windward Islands and the
notes, which will be of $1, $2, $5, $10,
$20 and $100 denominations respective-
ly, are expected to be put into circula-
tion as from the 15th of the same
month.
It is understood that a rumour has
been current in some quarters that
these notes will exchange for less than
face value as regards monies in present
use, and Government therefore desires
to re-assure the Public that this is EN-
TIRELY INCORRECT.
Currency notes and coin of the ap-
proved denominations (or of any other
subsequently approved denominations)
will be legal tender throughout the
several Colonies mentioned and will be
convertible into sterling, as expressed
in the Agreement, 'in dollars at the rate
of 100 cents for each dollar of the value

OBJECTS AND REASONS.

The objects of this Bill are as follows :-
(a) to extend the benefits of actions which may be brought by the
dependents of persons killed by any unlawful act or default to
illegitimate and adopted persons;
(b) to exclude from consideration when assessing charges under this
Ordinance, any sum paid or payable by insurance companies to the
dependents of the deceased;
(c) to permit damages to be awarded to dependents in respect of the
funeral expenses of the deceased if the dependents have in fact incurred
such expenses;
(d) to ensure that on the death of a person after the commencement of this
Ordinance all causes of action subsisting against or vested in him shall
survive against, or as the case may be, for the benefit of his estate,
except in the cases mentioned in section 14 (1).
2. The Bill also makes it clear that damages which may be obtained under
section 14 are for the benefit of the estate of the deceased and in no way affect
the remedies vested in his dependents under sections 2 to 13.
3. As a result of the provisions of section 14, subsections (1), (2) and (4) of
section 9 of the Intestates Estates Ordinance which relate to injuries to property
only are now unnecessary and have been repealed.
