Whereas by the Constitution of the West Indies (hereinafter
referred to as "The Constitution") it is provided that there shall
be a Governor-General and Commander-in-Chief of the Federa-
tion thereby constituted (hereinafter referred to as "the
Federation") who shall be appointed by Us by Commission under
Our Sign Manual and Signet and hold office during Our pleasure
and who shall be Our representative in the Federation:

And Whereas We are minded to issue Instructions for the
guidance of the Governor-General and Commander-in-Chief or
any other person who may be appointed to perform the functions
of that office:
Now, therefore, as from the date appointed under sub-
section (2) of section 1 of the West Indies (Federation) Order
in Council, 1957, We do direct and enjoin and declare Our will
and pleasure as follows:-

1. (1) Every person who is appointed to the office of
Governor-General and Commander-in-Chief under article 2, or
who is appointed to perform the functions of that office under
article 3, of the Constitution, shall, before entering on the duties
of that office, cause the Commission by which he is appointed
to be read and published in the presence of the Chief Justice of
the Federation or some other judge of the Federal Supreme Court
and, unless there is for the time being no Council of State, of
such members of that Council as can conveniently attend, and
make before the said persons an oath or affirmation of allegiance
and an oath or affirmation for the due execution of the office
of Governor-General and Commander-in-Chief in accordance
with the provisions of the Constitution, which oaths or affirma-
tions the said Chief Justice or other judge is hereby required to
administer.
(2) Until the Chief Justice of the Federation or some other
judge of the Federal Supreme Court has been appointed and has
entered upon the functions of his office, the reference in the
foregoing paragraph of this clause to the Chief Justice of the
Federation or some other judge of the Federal Supreme Court shall
be construed as a reference to the President of the Court estab-
lished by the West Indian Court of Appeal Act, 1919, or some
other judge of that Court.

2. (1) During the period commencing with the date

Committee of the Federation, or such of them as may be available,
regarding-

subsection (1) and subsection (5) of section 2 of the

Provided that-
(i) the Governor-General shall not be required to consult
any of the members of the said Committee in any

be construed as references to the members thereof representing
territories comprised in the Federation.

absent from the Federation for the purposes of article 3 of the
Constitution, the Governor-General shall not leave the Federa-
tion without first obtaining permission from Us through one of
Our Principal Secretaries of State.

6. These Instructions, so far as may be, shall be deemed
to be addressed to, and shall be observed by, any deputy to the
Governor-General appointed under article 4 of the Constitution.

7. In these Instructions, unless the context otherwise
