REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF AUDIT OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO ON THE
ACCOUNTS OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF CURRENCY BRITISH
CARIBBEAN TERRITORIES (EASTERN GROUP) FOR THE YEAR ENDED THE
31ST DECEMBER, 1952.

CURRENCY FUND INCOME ACCOUNT.
The income for the year exceeded the operating expenditure by $906,218.52.
From this sum the deficit of $188,755.90 brought forward from the 1951 accounts
was paid off, and $452,387.04 i.e. 1% of the value of the Currency Fund before the
inclusion of the Statutory Contribution was transferred to the Currency Fund. It
has now been agreed that this method of computing this 1% is in accordance with
Article 4(2),C of the First Schedule to Ordinance No. 39 of 1950 (Trinidad and
Tobago) :i
2. The balance of $265,075.58 in the Income Account was not distributed among
the participating Governments of the Group, but was also transferred to the
Currency Fund in accordance with Article 4(3) a, of the First Schedule to the said
Ordinance, as the value of the notes in circulation exceeded the value of the
Currency Fund at the close of the year.
3. CURRENCY FUND.
After the transfers referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 above the Note
Circulation exceeded the Currency Fund by $477,124.44. According to Article 6(2)
of the terms of agreement, the participating Governments are liable to make good
this difference to such extent as the Secretary of State may deem it necessary. The
Governments have not yet been required to fulfil this obligation.
4. BOARDS OF SURVEY.
The requirements of Regulation 20 regarding the periodical verification of
Currency Notes Stocks were not fully observed during the year. The Stocks of
Notes in Dominica were not examined by a Board of Survey in the first quarter nor
those at St. Lucia during the second quarter of 1952. No surveys were held in
Trinidad, Barbados, Grenada and St. Kitts during the third quarter or in Grenada,
St. Vincent or Antigua during the 4th quarter. The stipulated Annual Surprise
Surveys were not held in Grenada, Antigua, St. Vincent, Dominica .and St. EIitts.
5. OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS.
The Accounts have been presented on a cash basis, as was done for the previous
accounting period. Because of delay in the submission of claims, certain accounts
were outstanding at the close of the year-e.g. out of a total provision of $1,240.00
per annum for audit fees payable to the governments of the various Colonies, only
$620.00 (Trinidad $600.00 St. Vincent $20.00) had been paid at 31st December, 1952.
The exact figure of the total of commitments outstanding is not available.
6. AUDIT.
Audited Statements of Currency transactions during 1952 have not been
received from the Windward and Leeward Islands at the date of this report.
Verification has been effected with the copies of the Duplicate Vault Registers
received from these territories by the Executive Commissioner of the Board at
Port of Spain.

Director of Audit.
