Lerwarp 4 The Police (Amendment). No. of 1952.
IsLANDS.
OBJECTS AND REAAONS.



The object of this Bill is to amend the Police Act (No.
12/1951) so as—

(a) to remove the requirement of good character in
the case of widows or mothers of officers killed in execu-
tion of duty who are granted pensions under the Act;

(b) to make clear the cases in which the Police
Welfare Association may not make representations.
Subsection (2) of section 59 as worded at present is
unnecessarily restrictive and is somewhat in conflict with
subsection (1) of the said section. The object is that
Inspectors, subordinate police officers and constables
should be free to bring to the notice of the Commissioner
of Police and the Governor matters affecting their general
welfare and efficiency but that there should be no repre-
sentation regarding any question of discipline, promotion,
transfer or leave affecting individuals;

(c) to provide for the reduction in rank of a sub-
ordinate police officer on the ground of inefficiency ;

(d) to Eee for the termination of the services of
an Inspector, subordinate police officer or constable, in
cases where the interests of the Force demand it, after
a report has been submitted by the Woramissioner of
P.lice. In every such case the Inspector, subordinate
police officer or constable will have a right to submit to
the Governor a reply to any such report made against him.

Any Inspector, subordinate police officer or constable
so retired will not, however, be deprived of any pension,
gratuity or other allowance for which he may have been
eligible at the date of such retirement.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.





As one of the five representative members of
the General Legislative Council is the person
elected to the [sland Council of Saint Christopher
Nevis and Anguilla in respect of Anguilla, no
appointment can under the provisious of the Act
be made to fill a temporary vacancy caused by the
inability of the Anguilla member to take his seat
on the General Legislative Coaucil.

This Bill seeks accordingly to remedy the
situation by allowing any such temporary vacancy
to be filled by election of any elected member from
among the elected members of the seid Island
Council.

Under section 9A of the Principal Act among
the official members of the General Legislative
Council are the Federal Treasurer and a Federal
Officer appointed by name or by office. The Bill
amends this section by substituting for such officers
two Federal or Presidential officers appointed by
name or by office.

The Bill also seeks to make provision, by
amendment of section 10, for laws to be made
determining and regulating the privileges, immuni-
ties and powers of the General Legislative Council
and its members.

Section 19 of the Principal Act has been
redrafted to enuble the provisions of the new
Royal Instructions when brought into operation to
be applied in cases where—

(a) a two-thirds majority of representa-
tive and nominated members of General
Legislative Council is necessary for the
removal of an elected member of the Hxecu-
tive Council of the Leeward Islands; and

(b) the presiding member should with a
view to preserving the impartiality of the
chair not exercise a casting vote in respect of
the removal of an elected member of such
Exeeutive Council,

Section 25 as it stands permits the fixing and
apportionment, by the Council, between the Presi-
dencies, of expenses of common establishments but
excepts from such fixing and apportionment the
remuneration and travelling expenses of members
of the Council.

Clause 7 of the Bill seeks to remove the
exception and to make it permissible for the General
Legislative Council to fix and apportion under the
Act instead of under the Travelling Allowance
(Executive and Legislative Councils) Acts, No. 17
of 1941 and No. 4 of 1947 (now being repealed by
the Bill) the expenses of General Legislative
Council and Federal Executive Couneil.

OBJECTS AND REAAONS.



The object of this Bill is to amend the Police Act (No.

(a) to remove the requirement of good character in
the case of widows or mothers of officers killed in execu-
tion of duty who are granted pensions under the Act;

(b) to make clear the cases in which the Police
Welfare Association may not make representations.
Subsection (2) of section 59 as worded at present is
unnecessarily restrictive and is somewhat in conflict with
subsection (1) of the said section. The object is that
Inspectors, subordinate police officers and constables
should be free to bring to the notice of the Commissioner
of Police and the Governor matters affecting their general
welfare and efficiency but that there should be no repre-
sentation regarding any question of discipline, promotion,
transfer or leave affecting individuals;

(c) to provide for the reduction in rank of a sub-
ordinate police officer on the ground of inefficiency ;

(d) to Eee for the termination of the services of
an Inspector, subordinate police officer or constable, in
cases where the interests of the Force demand it, after
a report has been submitted by the Woramissioner of
P.lice. In every such case the Inspector, subordinate
police officer or constable will have a right to submit to
the Governor a reply to any such report made against him.

Any Inspector, subordinate police officer or constable
so retired will not, however, be deprived of any pension,
gratuity or other allowance for which he may have been
eligible at the date of such retirement.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.





As one of the five representative members of
the General Legislative Council is the person
elected to the [sland Council of Saint Christopher
Nevis and Anguilla in respect of Anguilla, no
appointment can under the provisious of the Act
be made to fill a temporary vacancy caused by the
inability of the Anguilla member to take his seat
on the General Legislative Coaucil.

This Bill seeks accordingly to remedy the
situation by allowing any such temporary vacancy
to be filled by election of any elected member from
among the elected members of the seid Island
Council.

Under section 9A of the Principal Act among
the official members of the General Legislative
Council are the Federal Treasurer and a Federal
Officer appointed by name or by office. The Bill
amends this section by substituting for such officers
two Federal or Presidential officers appointed by
name or by office.

The Bill also seeks to make provision, by
amendment of section 10, for laws to be made
determining and regulating the privileges, immuni-
ties and powers of the General Legislative Council
and its members.

Section 19 of the Principal Act has been
redrafted to enuble the provisions of the new
Royal Instructions when brought into operation to
be applied in cases where—

(a) a two-thirds majority of representa-
tive and nominated members of General
Legislative Council is necessary for the
removal of an elected member of the Hxecu-
tive Council of the Leeward Islands; and

(b) the presiding member should with a
view to preserving the impartiality of the
chair not exercise a casting vote in respect of
the removal of an elected member of such
Exeeutive Council,

Section 25 as it stands permits the fixing and
apportionment, by the Council, between the Presi-
dencies, of expenses of common establishments but
excepts from such fixing and apportionment the
remuneration and travelling expenses of members
of the Council.

Clause 7 of the Bill seeks to remove the
exception and to make it permissible for the General
Legislative Council to fix and apportion under the
Act instead of under the Travelling Allowance
(Executive and Legislative Councils) Acts, No. 17
of 1941 and No. 4 of 1947 (now being repealed by
the Bill) the expenses of General Legislative

Pensions (Amendment). No. of 1952.
OBJECTS AND REASONS.

The objects of this Bill are:—

(a) to provide for the award of pension
under the Pensions Act, 1947, to officers
transferred from service in the Colony to a
Colonial University College or to employment
under a local authority in the United King-
dom;

(b) to repeal the provision whereby an
officer may be removed from the service for
general inefficiency and to substitute a provi-
sion whereby an officer’s service may be
terminated if it is in the public interest so to
do having regard to the conditions of the
public service, the usefulness of the officer
thereto and all the other circumstances of the
case. This substitution would not however
affect the pension, gratuity or other allow-
ance for which the officer may be eligible.

y, The opportunity has been taken to

remove the requirement of good character con-
tained in section 17 of tue Principal Act in the
case of widows or mothers of officers killed in
execution of duty, who are granted a pension in
accordance with the provisions of the section.
