THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE.

enters the car to the place at which
he leaves it (¢.e. so much a mile for
the single journey) and charge for
waiting if any should be stated.
Provided that where the officer enters
or leaves the car outside the City
limits a charge may be made for the
distance between that point and St.
John’s.

3. Government will not be pre-
cluded from hiring seats for public
officers in public service vehicle
which would otherwise be proceeding
to the officer’s destination where this
will result in an economy eg. for
customs officers going to Coolidge
Airfield on duty in a car hired or
used by the Airline Agents.

4. Government does not bind it-
self to accept the lowest or any tender.

5. The Contractor will be expected
to provide prompt and efficient ser-
vice and any agreement entered into
with a contractor will be subject to
the following conditions:—

(i) The Contractor shall when-
ever required furnish a car.

(ii) If due notice of the require-
ment of a car has been given
and failing any satisfactory
explanation the Contractor’s
car arrives more than five
minutes after the required
time Government shall have
the right to deduct a penalty
not exceeding 10/- from any
of the sums due and owing to
the Contractor.

(iii) In the event of the Contrac-

toi’s car being more than 15

minutes late after the required

- time Government may cancel

the contract on giving the
contractor one week’s notice
in writing.

(iv) Government shall also have
the right to terminate the
contract on giving one week’s
notice in writing if the ser-
vice is generally unreliable
through repeated unpunctual-
ity, defective cars or other
cause.

6. The Tender should state the
number of cars to be at the disposal
of Government.

7. All tenders should be addressed
to the Administrator in a sealed en-
velope marked “Tender for Official
Transport” and should be lodged at

Citizenship—Canadians born
abroad.



The Department of External Affairg
in Ottawa has issued tbe following
statement of vital importance to all
Canadians residing abroad :—

“In order to clear a doubt which
had arisen, the Registrar of Cana-
dian Citizenship was asked recently
by the Department to say definitely
whether a child born outside Cana-
da who had not been registered as
required by Section 5 (1) (%) (ii) of
the Canadian Citizenship Act could,
under any circumstances be con-
sidered to be a Canadian citizen.

“The Registrar has now given
us his considered opinion that the’
requirement of registration in Sec-
tion 5 (1) (4) (ii) of the Act is
mandatory. He concluded that a
person who is not registered ‘never
becomesa Canadian citizen ’ under
that section of the Act.”

“This ruling illustrates the im-
portance of prompt registration of
births as required by the Act.

“If registration is not effected
as required, a child born of Cana-
dian parents will be stateless from
birth in countries where the
nationality of children depends ea-
tirely upon parentage (/us sangut-
nis) rather than upon the place of
birth (jus sol’). It should also be
noted that where a child is includ-
ed in the Canadian passport of one
of its parents prior to its second
birthday and before the registration
of the birth has been completed, it
will be necessary to make a nota-
tion in the passport to the effect
that, pending compliance with
Section 5 (1) (0) (ii) of the Cana-
dian Citizenship Act. the child is
not a Canadian citizen.” | -

Citizenship—Canadians born
abroad.



The Department of External Affairg
in Ottawa has issued tbe following
statement of vital importance to all
Canadians residing abroad :—

“In order to clear a doubt which
had arisen, the Registrar of Cana-
dian Citizenship was asked recently
by the Department to say definitely
whether a child born outside Cana-
da who had not been registered as
required by Section 5 (1) (%) (ii) of
the Canadian Citizenship Act could,
under any circumstances be con-
sidered to be a Canadian citizen.

“The Registrar has now given
us his considered opinion that the’
requirement of registration in Sec-
tion 5 (1) (4) (ii) of the Act is
mandatory. He concluded that a
person who is not registered ‘never
becomesa Canadian citizen ’ under
that section of the Act.”

“This ruling illustrates the im-
portance of prompt registration of
births as required by the Act.

“If registration is not effected
as required, a child born of Cana-
dian parents will be stateless from
birth in countries where the
nationality of children depends ea-
tirely upon parentage (/us sangut-
nis) rather than upon the place of
birth (jus sol’). It should also be
noted that where a child is includ-
ed in the Canadian passport of one
of its parents prior to its second
birthday and before the registration
of the birth has been completed, it
will be necessary to make a nota-
tion in the passport to the effect
that, pending compliance with
Section 5 (1) (0) (ii) of the Cana-
dian Citizenship Act. the child is
not a Canadian citizen.” | -
