Proclamation but provision to this effect was inadvertently omitted from the
Ordinance.

Clerk of Legislative Council.
(J. 18/1944).

OBJECTS.AND REASONS.

In this Colony the two branches of the legal profession are not separate and a
barrister may perform all and any of the functions of a solicitor.
The object of this Bill is to amend the Supreme Court Ordinance so as to
provide that a Queen's Counsel in the Colony shall perform none of the functions
which in England are performed by a solicitor.
2. The amendment makes it clear however, that there is no objection to an
advocate to whom a grant of slk" is made remaining in partnership with
another barrister who practices as a solicitor provided that the Queen's Counsel in
no way associates himself with the solicitor's side of the firm's work.

REPORT OF THE ACTING DIRECTOR OF AUDIT OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
ON THE ACCOUNTS OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF CURRENCY,
BRITISH CARIBBEAN TERRITORIES (EASTERN GROUP) FOR THE PERIOD
ENDED THE 31ST OF DECEMBER, 1951.

The Currency Board was created on the 28th of November, 1950, it took over
the note circulation of the Governments of Barbados, British Guiana and Trinidad
and Tobago on the 1st of August, 1951, and put it's own notes into circulation on
the 15th of August, 1951. The attached accounts cover all the transactions of the
Currency Board up to the 31st of December, 1951, including the expenses of the
Preparatory Committee.

C'URiENCY FUND INCOME ACCOUNT.
2. The Contribution to the Currency Fund of $172,875.40 represents five-
twelfths of one per cent of the value of the Fund at the 31st of December, 1951.
The full one per cent was not charged as the Currency Board only took over note
circulation from the 1st of August, 1951. Calculation of the one per cent was made
on the value of the Fund before crediting the contribution. It is not clear from
Article 4(2) (c) of the First Schedule to Ordinance No. 39 of 1950 (Trinidad and
Tobago) whether this method of calculation is correct or whether the contribution
should be included when calculating the one per cent.

3. Expenditure exceeded Income for the period under review by $188,755.90
and this amount was transferred to a Deficit Account" and appears in the
Statement of Assets and Liabilities. This deficit should have been met by the
various participating Governments in accordance with Article 4(3) of the First
Schedule to Ordinance No. 39 of 1950 (Trinidad and Tobago). I understand that
as this was the first year of operation it was decided to carry this deficit forward
as it is expected that there will be sufficient surplus in 1952 to meet this initial
deficit.

BOARDS OF SURVEY.
4. Boards of Survey were held in Barbados and British Guiana during the
last quarter of 1951, but, although a Standing Board of Survey was appointed by
the Governor of Trinidad and Tobago on the 31st of October, 1951, no survey was
held until the 8th of January, 1952. The Regulations require that ordinary
surveys shall be held at least quarterly, and that at least one surprise survey shall
be held during the year. There were no stocks of notes held by the Currency
Board in the Windward and Leeward Islands in 1951.

GENERAL.
5. Statements of currency transactions during 1951 have not yet been
received from the Auditor-General of Barbados. Verification was made with the
copies of the Duplicate Vault Register received from Barbados by the Executive
Commissioner.
