BRITISH CARIBBEAN FEDERATION.

The Secretary of State has sent the
following message to the Governor of
Jamaica:-
"I should like you to know how much
I welcome resolution passed by House
of Representatives and Legislative Coun-
cil on the subject of West Indian Fed-
eration. Subject to views of other
Colonies that have accepted principle
of Federation, I also welcome proposals
to hold a conference in London.
I note that a Joint Committee of the
Legislature is being set up in Jamaica to
consider details of proposals in report
of Standing Closer Association Com-
mittee. The suggested conference could
be held when report of this joint com-
mittee and results of any similar studies
that may be made in other Colonies are
available.
It would seem that conference might
then be held early next year. This
would give time for remaining Colonies
to decide whether or not they wish to
participate in projects of Federation."

No. 481.
PAYMENT AGREEMENT WITH
JAPAN.

A sterling Payments Agreement be-
tween the United Kingdom and Japan, to
replace the former Overall Sterling Pay-
ments Agreement of 31st May, 1948,
between the United Kingdom and the


Supreme Commander Allied Powers,
was signed in Tokyo on 31st August.
Prolonged but cordial negotiations
have been going on during recent
months. The intention of the New
Agreement is to create a more normal
payments relationship between Japan
and the sterling area, and thus pave the
way for relaxation of the payments
restrictions which have hitherto ham-
pered developmi-nts of a fuller exchange
of goods and services. The Agreement
comes into force immediately and runs
for 12 months subject to renewal or
extension by mutual consent.
The parties recognize the desirability
of keeping Japan's sterling balances
within reasonable limits and will -con-
sult together to ensure a satisfactory
operation of the Agreement in this and
all its other aspects.
Japan will have opportunities to make.
and receive payments in sterling to and
from countries outside the sterling area,
nnder the system of administrative
transferability.

ELECTRICITY AND TELEPHONE
DEPARTMENT.

ELECTRICITY.

The Power Station at present is run-
ning without any adequate stand-by,
and this condition may not improve for
some considerable time.
In the circumstances, it is not intend-
ed to connect any more new consumers,
neither will the system of transferring
connections be any longer acceptable
to the department, this system being
liable to abuse.
Applications, however, for connections
may continue to be sent in and will be
treated strictly on their merits ; a wait-
ing list will be kept and wherever it is
possible, after careful consideration.
connections will be made, but only if
no addition to the existing number of
consumers is entailed.

TELEPHONES.

It will not be possible to add any
more subscribers to the telephone sys-
tem, either direct, or by party line.
The system is already very heavily
overloaded and it is extremely difficult
to maintain operating efficiency.
The condition of the plant, too. does
not justify any further additions to the
list of subscribers and only very urgent
applications, such as from doctors, will
be considered.
20th September, 1951.




Consumers are notified that as from
and including the 14th October, No. 4
engine at the Power Station will be
closed down for general overhaul.
This will entail load shedding in cer-
tain districts, as No. 4 being the largest
unit in the station carries during peak
hours the bulk of the load.
The production of ice will also be
very much curtailed during this period.
Every effort will be made to minimise
the inconvenience resulting from this
close down.
