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.

Acting Superintendent Electricity
and Telephone Department.

Executive Council as aforesaid; but in all such cases the Governor
is to decide either to extend or to withhold a pardon or reprieve
according to his own deliberate judgment, whether the Members
of that Executive Council concur therein or otherwise; causing,

Council a statement of his reasons at length, in case he should
decide any such question in opposition to the judgment of the
majority of the Members thereof.

absent from the Windward Islands for the purposes of Article 8
