REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF AUDIT OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
ON THE ACCOUNTS OF THE BOARD OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF
CURRENCY, BRITISH CARIBBEAN TERRITORIES (EASTERN
GROUP) FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31ST DECEMBER, 1959.

CURRENCY FUND INCOME ACCOUNT:
The Board paid $75.00 to Barclays Bank D.C.O. in full settlement of claims
for commission on notes issued by the Bank which are to be ,withdrawn from
circulation. In previous years, commission was paid only on 'the value of notes
actually withdrawn each year.

2. The allocation to the Currency Fund should have been $955,599.26 aid
not $955,559.26. As a result, the amount transferred to the Currency Surplus
Account has been overstated by $40.00.

CURRENCY FUND:
3., The charge of $389.90 in the Currency Fund relates to Crown Agent's
commission on the gain on Treasury Bills which has been credited to the Cur-
rency Fund.

4. Under Article' 3 (4) of the Agreement contained in the First Schedule
to the Currency Ordinance, Ch. 35, No. 2 (Trinidad and Tobago), the Secretary
of State on the 24th June, 1958, gave approval for the liquid portion of the
Fund to be increased from 10% to 20% for at least two years. At 31st Decem-
ber, 1959, this limit was exceeded by $3,804,301.34, and this does not include
the amount of $955.559.26 transferred from the Income Account to the Cur-
rency Fund under Article 4 (2) (c), and $5,350.00 due from the Government
of St. Vincent.

CASH AND SECURITIES WITH CROWN AGENTS:
5. With reference to paragraph 5 of my Report for the year 1958, the
Comptroller and Auditor-General has certified the balances held by the Crown
Agents on behalf of the Board at 31st December, 1958. A statement of cash
and securities held by the Crown Agents on behalf of the Board at 31st Decem-
ber, 1959, has been seen, but the certificate of the Comptroller and Auditor-
General has not yet been received.

BOARD OF SURVEY :
6. The position reported at paragraph 8 of my Report for the year 1958
remained the same, as all Boards of Survey were still unable to comply with
Regulation 10 (4) of the Currenoy (Coin) Regulations 1955.

7. It was reported that the Board of Survey had not carried out the
checks laid down for United Kingdom coins at the survey held in St. Kitts
on 16th December, 1959, although members signed an unqualified certificate
indicating that the checks had been made.

8. The following surveys were not held during the year as required by
Regulation 20 (3) of the Currency (Notes) Regulations, 1951, and Regulation
10 (3) of the Currency (Coin) Regulations,- 1955:-
Grenada .. A Sunprise Survey
St. Lucia .. Three (3) Ordinary Quarterly and One (1) Surprise
Surveys.

AUDITED STATEMENTS FROM PARTiCIPATING TERRITORIES:
9. Audited Statements of the currency transactions during 1959 have not
been received from any of the Leward Islands. Verification of these transac-
tions, however, has been made from the Vault Book Returns from these terri-
tories which were received by the Executive Commissioner in Port of Spain.
I. V. G. MACKAY,
Director of Audit.
26th April, 1960.

















MEMORANDUM ON REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF AUDIT ON ACCOUNTS
OF THE BOARD FOR THE YEAR 1959.

CURRENCY FUND INCOME ACCOUNT:
At the fourteenth meeting of the Board held on 26 September, 1959, it was
decided that commission on $20,000 i.e. $75.00, be paid to Messrs. Barclays Bank
D.C.O. in full settlement of the Board's undertaking to issue British Caribbean
currency notes free of commission to the Bank to the value of the Bank's notes
withdrawn from circulation, in view, of the Bank having voluntarily surrendered
its right under Charter to issue notes. The value of the Bank's notes in circu-
lation at August 1958 was $59,285 and the action taken by the Board was
intended to fipalise its undertaking to the Bank which was otherwise likely to
remain in force indefinitely.
2. The allocation of $40.00 in excessmunder Article 4 (2) (c) of the Cur-
rency Agreement has been adjusted in 1960.
CURRENCY FUND:
3. It is the normal procedure to charge brokerage and/or commission in
connection with the purchase and sale of securities on behalf of the Currency
Fund to the Fund.
4. The approved limit of the portion of the Currency Fund that may
be held in liquid form was exceeded at 31st December, 1959, consequent on
uncertainty of date of enactment of legislation in all of the Territories enabling
local loans approved by the Board to, be made, and also to heavy purchases
of currency for sterling in November/December, 1959. Steps have been taken
to obtain approval for the excess in the circumstances.
BOARDS OF SURVEY:
5. A Board of Survey is appointed by the Governor of each Colony to
survey stocks, of currency held by the British Caribbean Currency Board in
the Colony. The Board of Survey thus appointed acts quite independently of
the. Currency Board. The Currency (Coin) Regulations require that the seals
on each container of coins be inspected by a Board of Survey, but it is generally
impracticable for a Board of Survey to inspect the seals of most of the con-
tainers owing to the limited space in the vaults, and this fact is generally stated
in the Report on each Survey. In the Leeward Islands and the Windward
Islands and Barbados where Barclays Bank D.C.O. acts as Agent of the Board
for dealing with coin, the containers with coin are in the sole custody of the
Bank and the Bank has undertaken to deliver the containers with the seals
intact. At British Guiana the Board of Survey might inspect the seals at
least once a year notwithstanding the labour and expense involved. At Trinidad
where large stocks of coin are held it would be a lengthy and costly exercise
involving the unpacking and repacking of the entire contents of the coin vault
for inspection of the seals.
6. When the operation of exchanging British Caribbean coin for United
Kingdom coin is completed, however, it should be practicable for the provisions
of the Regulations to be complied with without undue difficulty.
7. The Currency Officer at St. Kitts was requested to draw the attention
of the Board of Survey to the report of the Director of Audit and he has in-
formed me that the certificate signed by the Board of Survey as been amended.
8. The failure of the Board of Survey in one or another of the Colonies
to comply with the requirements of the Regulations by holding the required
number of surveys is drawn to the attention of the appropriate Government
each year. It might be of assistance if the Auditor of each Colony, who is
represented at each survey and also receives a report of each survey held, would
draw the attention of the Governor or Administrator of the Colony promptly
to any failure to hold a survey within the period required by the Regulations.

KINGSTOWN,
27th May, 1960.

His Honour the Administrator,
Government Office.

Sir,
By your appointment, in the case of the Chairman, and by Motion in the
Legislative Council, in the case of other members, we were appointed as a Bi-
Partisan Commission with the following terms of reference:
"To decide on the redistribution of constituency boundaries which is most
reasonable and effective in order to provide one extra Elected seat on the
St. Vincent Legislative Council".
The Commission met on the 23rd and 30th March and the 4th April at the
office of the Chief Minister; all meetings were attended by all members.
At the outset; it was unanimously agreed that the constituency of the
Grenadines should remain as at present even though its voting population is
quite considerably smaller than those of all of the mainland constituencies.
In considering the allocation of Mainland Constituency boundaries we have
been compelled to rely on the most recent electoral lists, those prepared in 1958
tor the Federal bye-election; according to these, the total voting population of
the Mainland is 29,299 and, although it was recognized that the best theoretical
distribution would be that under which these votes were most nearly equally
divided araong the nine constituencies it was agreed that the constituencies of
North Windward and North Leeward, whose rugged terrain present the greatest
obstacles to a prospective candidate, should have a voting population below the
average of 3,662 even though this obviously meant that some of the other con-
stituencies would contain more than the average number of voters..
We recommend that the Eight Mainland constituencies should be named and
bounded as follows:-


NAME


BOUNDARIES


1. North
Windward:


2. Central
Windward:


North by the sea as far west as West Point, East by the
sea, South by the Grand Sable River, and West by the
Central Range from West Point.

North by Grand Sable River, East by the sea, South by
the Union River to its source thence in a straight line to
Petit Bonhomme thence to Grand Bonhomme, West by the
Central Range.


3. South
Windward: North by the Union River to its source thence in a
straight line to Petit Bonhomme thence to Grand Bon-
homme, East by the Sea, South by the Yambou River to
the Mesopotamia Bridge thence along the Vigie Road to its
junction with the Eyry Road thence to the tank at Kil-
burney (211 VS) thence to Mount Saint Andrew, West by
the Central Range.


4. East
Saint George:




5. West
Saint George:










6. Kingstown:


North by the Yambou River to the Mesopotamia Bridge
thence al6ng the Vigie Road to 'its junction with the Eyry
Road, East and South the sea, West the Greathead River
to the Arnos Vale Bridge thence along the Vigie Highway
to its junction with the Eyry Road.

North by 'a line drawn from the junction of the Vigie
and Eyry Roads to the tank at Kilburney (211 VS) thence
to Mount Saint Andrew, East by the Greathead River to the
Amos Vale Bridge thence along the Vigie Highway to its
junction with the Eyry Road, South by the sea, West by
the sea and a line from the Kingstown Customs Pier along
Sharpe Street, and Granby Street to its junction with the
Murray's Road thence along the Murray's Road to its junc-
tion with the Murray's Village Road thence along the
Murray's Village Road to Millers' Gate thence to Mount
Saint Andrew.

-North-West by the York River to Mount Saint Andrew,
East by afline from the Kingstown Customs Pier along
Sharpe Street, and in Granby Street to its junction with the
Murray's Road thence along the Murray's Road to its junc-
tion with the Murray's Village Road thence along the
Murray's Village Road to Millers' Gate thence to Mount
Saint Andrew, South and West by the sea.



















NAME BOUNDARIES

7. South
Leeward: North by a line drawn from the Barrouallie Jetty along
the road as far as the bridge below the Anglican Rectory
thence along the stream to Jacques Hill thence along the
Ridge to the Central Range, East by the Central Range to
Mount Saint Andrew, South East by the York River to
Mount Saint Andrew, West by the sea.
8. North
Leeward: North by the sea as far East as West Point, East by the
Central Range from West Point, South by a line drawn
from the Barrouallie Jetty along the road as far as the
bridge below the Anglican Rectory thence along the
stream to Jacques Hill thence along the Ridge to the Central
Range West by the sea.

If our recommendations are accepted, and using the 1958 electoral lists as
a guide, we estimate the voting population of the proposed constituencies to be
as follows:
Grenadines ...... 2,285
North Windward ...... 3,389
Central Windward ...... 3,724
South Windward ..... 3,634
East Saint George ...... 3,562
West Saint George ...... 3,600
Kingstown ...... 4,073
South Leeward ...... 3,800
North Leeward ...... 3,517

31,584


In certain instances our decisions were unanimous and in others they were
arrived at by majority. Members have agreed, however, that this report will go
forward as the report of the Commission signed by all its members and that no
minority reports will be submitted.

The Commission desires to place on record its appreciation of the assistance
given to it by the Surveys Department, the Census Officer, Mr. J. V. Alves and its
Secretary Mr. O. S. Barrow.

We have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient Servants,

EDWARD A. C: HUGHES,
Chairman.
