OBJECTS AND REASONS.
The object of this Bill is to rectify a hiatus in the local law consequent upon the coining into force of the United Kingdom Patents Act, 19,19 (Imperial). This defect was drawn to the attention of the Montserrat Government by the Secretary of State in Circular 1133/55 dated 8th November, 1955.
2. Under the United 1ingdomin Patents Acts 19071946, all patents based on non-convention applications were dated as at the date of the application in the United Kingdom. Section 8 of the Registration of United Kingdom Patents

Act thus provides that the use of the patent in the Colony by some person after the date of the patent in the United Kingdom and prior to the date of the certificate of registration issued in the Colony should not be a ground for challenging the validity of the certificate.
3. Under the United Kingdom Patents Act, 1949, however, patents are dated as the date of filing the complete specification and some considerable time may elapse between the provisional application and the date of filing the complete specification. It is therefore necessary to amend section 8 of the local Act in order to bring it in line with. the United Kingdom Patents Act, 19,19.
