25. The following are the categories and subdivisions under which flying machines are classified: -

(1) Normal category :

Subdivision (a); Public transport machines for passengers.

Subdivision (b); Public transport machines for mails.

Subdivision (c); Public transport machines for goods.

"Public transport machines" are defined as those which may be used for

flight with passengers, mails, or goods, for remuneration.

""

Subdivision (d); Private machines. "Private machines are defined as those which (i) are the property of an aeroplane club, or (ii) may be used for purposes other than either the carriage of passengers, mails, or goods for remuneration or any other industrial purpose:

Subdivision (e); Aerial work machines.

"Aerial work machines" are defined as

those which may be used for industrial purposes not included in the defini- tion of public transport machines. (These purposes, which may depend on the incorporation of special structural features or equipment, may be limited by the certificate of airworthiness).

(2) Special category :-

(3) Acrobatic category :

Subdivision (a) to (g) in the two preceding categories.

NOTES. (i) All machines in the normal and special categories are limited to straight flying, i.e., are precluded from any evolution which might cause abrupt variations in the height or altitude of the machine.

(ii) The flight of machines in the special category may be limited, as a precau-

tionary measure, to certain areas and to certain periods.

(iii) Machines in the acrobatic category are not restricted to straight flying.

26. Classification of individual machines. -(1) The category in which a machine may be given a certificate of airworthiness will depend mainly upon its load factors.

  27.-(1) The subdivisions, which are the means of further classifying machines according to the purposes for which they may be used, are defined above.

These definitions are not, however, to be understood as necessarily restricting a machine to use for the purpose of only one subdivision, for, as indicated in paragraph 28 (2) below, it may be used for the purpose of more than one subdivision, provided that (except in the case mentioned in (2) (i) of this paragraph) the subdivisions concerned are specified on its certificate of airworthiness.

(2) (i) A public transport machine for passengers may be used for the carriage of passengers without remuneration.

(ii) The classification of a machine only under subdivision (d) does not enable it to be used for the purposes of public transport.

(iii) A machine will be classified as an aerial work machine under subdivision (e) for the special purposes for which its structural features and/or equipment are accepted as satisfactory.

EMPLOYMENT OF MACHINES.

28.--(1) A machine may be employed, in any given flight, solely for the purpose of one of the subdivisions in which it is classified on its certificate of airworthiness, provided that in that flight all requirements (including those in respect of the equip- ment and operation of the machine) which attach to the subdivision concerned are complied with.

  (2) A machine may be employed, in any given flight, for the purpose of more than one of the subdivisions in which it is classified on its certificate of airworthiness, provided that in that flight all requirements (including those in respect of the equip- ment and operation of the machine) which are common to the subdivisions concerned are complied with, and in cases where differences occur between the requirements attached to the subdivisions in question the highest standard is satisfied.

(3) A machine classified in any one of the subdivisions (a) to (ƒ) inclusive, and/or category 3 may take part in any sporting competitions.

29. In the event of its being desired to use a machine for purposes of subdivisions other than those stated on its certificate of airworthiness, an application for reclassifica- tion should be forwarded to the Registrar of Aircraft, Harbour Office, Victoria, Hong Kong, prior to the machine being used for such purposes. The application should be accompanied by all the necessary particulars to show that all requirements in respect of the proposed new classification are satisfied.

The application will be submitted for decision by the Governor. Prior to the issue of a new certificate of airworthiness by the Director of Air Services the machine may only be used for the purposes shown in its original certificate of airworthiness.

28 THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 15, 1932.

ABSENT:

His Excellency the General Officer Commanding the Troops, (Major-General JAMES

WALTER SANDILANDS, C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O.).

The Honourable Dr. WILLIAM BROWNLOW ASHE MOORE, (Director of Medical and

Sanitary Services).

1. The Council met pursuant to adjournment. His Excellency the Governor

occupied the Chair.

MINUTES.

2. The Minutes of the Meeting held on the 10th December, 1931, were confirmed.

QUESTIONS.

3. The Hon. Mr. R. H. KoTEWALL, C.M.G., LL.D., pursuant to notice, asked the

following questions:

With reference to the remark made by the Hon. Colonial Secretary at the meeting of the Legislative Council held on the 22nd October, 1931, that the Government would give serious consideration to my suggestion that

a committee be appointed to consider the general education policy of the Government, will the Government state-

(1) Whether such a committee will be appointed; and

(2) If not, what step does the Government propose to take to give

effect to the object in view?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:

1. The Government does not consider that the appointment of such a committee is called for as there already exists, in the Board of Education, a body which is competent to advise on matters connected with education in the Colony.

2. In October, 1930, the Board was invited to review the existing system of education and to make recommendations in respect of future policy. Several of its recommendations have already been put into operation and others will be adopted shortly.

The recommendations deal with such matters as the distribution of funds provided for educational purposes, syllabuses English and Chinese, the possibility of improving the opportunities of the children in private schools, the school medical service, the difficult question of the extent to which public funds should be made available for other than Vernacular education, the University Local Examinations and the training of teachers, and, in fact, constitute just such an overhaul of the existing system as appears to be contemplated by the Honourable Member.

Does the Director of Medical and Sanitary Services consider the present hospital accommodation in Kowloon adequate, in point of buildings and equipment and also of doctors and nursing staff, to cope with any sudden and widespread outbreak of a communicable disease in epidemic form such as is taking place in the Colony at the present time?

140

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 12, 1932.

4. Does the Government consider that the provision for hospital accommoda- tion in Kowloon has kept pace with the development of the peninsula. and the amazing growth of its population?

5. What immediate steps are contemplated to remedy the existing insuf- ficiency of hospital accommodation for the urgent needs of Kowloon residents?

6. Will the Honourable the Colonial Secretary state whether Government has any intention, and when, of submitting plans to the Finance Com- mittee of the Council for a further extension of the Kowloon Hospital, in addition to the Maternity Wing, in order to meet the requirements of an emergency arising out of an outbreak of disease in a virulent form?

The Director of Medical and Sanitary Services replied as follows:-

1. The arrangements are not altogether satisfactory but steps have been taken to see that in future a launch will be available to meet an emergency such as the one referred to by the Honourable Member.

2.-(a) The question does not arise.

(b) It is recommended that a special ambulance launch be built as soon

as the finances of the Colony permit.

3. The present scheme for control of epidemic disease provides that all Kowloon cases of infectious disease which require hospital isolation and treatment shall be conveyed to the infectious diseases hospital in Victoria. Such being the case no provision has been made for hospital treatment of such cases in Kowloon. The medical and nursing staff when at full strength is adequate to deal with any outbreak of com- municable disease in epidemic form such as was taking place in the Colony at the time these questions were drawn up.

4. Hospital accommodation in Kowloon is inadequate.

5. A new two storied building is nearing completion. It is proposed for the time being to use the upper floor for nurses' quarters and the lower floor for the accommodation of women and children suffering from non infectious diseases.

6. The Government does not propose at present to establish an infectious diseases hospital in Kowloon. Plans for the further extension of the Kowloon Hospital are under consideration and it is hoped that the financial position will permit of definite proposals being brought before the Legislative Council during the current year.

Sir,

I have the honour to inform you that, after very careful consideration, I have decided to assimilate the system of recruitment for the Cadet Services of Malaya and Hong Kong to that in force for the Colonial Service generally. An announcement this effect, of which I enclose a copy,* appeared in the press on January 26th.

2. As a consequence of this decision, which was taken after consultation with the Civil Service Commission and the Colonial Service Appointments Board, and with the concurrence of both bodies, candidates for the Cadet Services in the above mentioned Colonies will in future be selected on the recommendation of the Colonial Service Appointments Board instead of, as hitherto, according to the results of the competitive examination held by the Civil Service Commission for the Home and Indian Civil Services. The position of Ceylon is special and will be separately considered in con- sultation with the Governor. In the meantime the postponement of a decision in regard to that Island will have no immediate practical effect since the recruitment of Europeans for the Civil Service is at present suspended.

3. I realise that there may be some who will regret this decision as marking a break with a long and honourable tradition. I sympathise with that regret, and I would hasten to assure you that my decision was not based on any failure to appreciate the valuable services which have been rendered in the past, and are being rendered today, by men who have entered the Cadet Services through the competitive examination. Many of them, I am aware, have achieved distinction not only in the Eastern Colonies but in other parts of the Colonial Empire, to whose general development members of the Cadet Services have materially contributed.

4. At the same time it is essential to take account of the great changes which are so rapidly taking place in the Colonial Empire as a whole. It is necessary also to remember that the whole problem of recruitment at home has of recent years been considerably modified, on the one hand by economic forces arising out of the war, and on the other by the development of fresh alternative careers now open to the class of man which the Colonial Service desires to attract. In deciding to discontinue the com- petitive examination, I have been looking not at the past but to the future.

5. At a time when the Colonial Empire consisted of scattered units, separated from each other and from this country by distances which the modern methods of communication had not yet bridged, and when the administration of many of these units was still in the pioneering stage, it was not unnatural that recruitment for the older Administrations of

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 18, 1932.

Ceylon, Malaya and Hong Kong should be linked to that of the Home and, especially, the Indian Civil Services with which they had most in common. As a natural corollary to the rapid development of the Colonial Empire as a whole in recent years, corresponding changes and developments have taken place in the importance, character, and require- ments of the general Colonial Service. In consequence the Services of the Eastern Colonies have now to be considered in relation to that general Service, and their affinity with it, rather than with the Indian and Home Services, is daily becoming closer.

6. Whatever may have been the case in the past, the qualifications demanded in candidates for administrative posts in the Colonial Service do not now differ in any essential feature in whatever part of the Colonial Empire they may be required to serve. In recruiting men of the same type for the same kind of work and in the same market, it is clear that the best interests of all the Administrations concerned lie in presenting a single united appeal to the type of candidates they wish to attract. The prestige of a Colonial Service, entered by one uniform channel and presenting opportunities world wide in their scope, must eventually be far greater than that of a number of relatively small Services with no co-ordinated method of recruitment; and the Colonial Empire as a whole has become of such importance, that no step which will enhance the prestige and efficiency of the Service which administers it can safely be neglected.

    7. There were therefore the strongest grounds for adopting a single channel of appointment to posts of the same type in the Colonial Empire. It remained to consider what this channel should be, and at what stage the change should be introduced. I found that the overwhelming weight of experience and argument was in favour of the selection system. For various reasons, which I need not elaborate here, the. adoption of the examination system would have been impracticable for the Colonial Service as a whole, however satisfactory it may have been in meeting the relatively small requirements. of the Cadet Services. Moreover, the Committee of the Colonial Office Conference of 1930, which examined the question of the unification of the Colonial Service, explicitly deprecated the extension of the examination system beyond the areas in which it was then in force. On the other hand, the testimony of the Warren Fisher Committee to the success of the selection system and the fact that, as a result of that Committee's report, the selection system has been placed on a settled and permanent basis--and has been protected against suspicion on the score of partiality or unfairness, if any such suspicion there were, by the institution of the Colonial Service Appointments Board-led almost inevitably to the conclusion that, if a single method of entry were adopted, that method should be the selection system.

be

    8. While the obvious advantage of this system lies in its peculiar adaptability for securing men endowed with those necessary qualities of character and temperament which are not readily amenable to the test of a written examination, it should not supposed that the introduction of the system need involve any departure from the high standards of intellectual ability and academic distinction which are admittedly character- istic of the services recruited in past years by the competitive examination. Under the selection system a judicious scrutiny of the academic records and attainments of the candidate enables a close assessment to be made of his intellectual qualifications; and the educational records of recent applicants show that the Services already recruited by the selection system are now attracting young men of real ability who, from this point of view apart from any other, are fully able to stand comparison with those obtainable through the examination. With the added prestige which the Colonial Service will gain from presenting a single appeal to candidates. I am confident that there is every expecta- tion that the standard already reached will be maintained and even raised.

9. On the other hand, the pressure of financial considerations tends nowadays greatly to enhance the attractiveness of any profession or service which offers a career as soon as possible after the conclusion of a University course and which does not impose any additional hazard such as a severe ad hoc examination, involving delay and, in some cases, additional expense. In this respect there is a marked difference between post- war and pre-war conditions. In view of this and of the remarkable increase in the prestige and popularity of the main Colonial Service, which does not impose any academic test apart from those provided by the ordinary University curriculum, there are strong grounds for supposing that, were the Eastern Colonies to retain the examination, they would, as time went on, find their field of choice seriously restricted as compared with that at the disposal of the rest of the Service.

  10. It will be seen therefore that under the conditions of today, the adoption of a common method of entry for the whole Service is likely to prove generally advantageous, not only to the Colonial Service as a whole, but to each of its component elements. It is further clear that the two main arguments used in the past for the retention of the competitive examination, i.e. (i) that the selection system was difficult to defend against charges of partiality and (2) that it did not produce a sufficiently high standard of intellectual ability, can no longer be substantiated. On the other hand the selection system has been proved to possess distinct advantages both in widening the field of choice and in enabling weight to be given more easily to qualifications which are of great importance in the candidates to be selected. The results of the change can, of course, only be judged from experience, but I feel that there is every reason to look upon the future with confidence.

  11. Assuming then that the change was to be made, there were convincing argu- ments for making it immediately. In the ordinary way I should have wished to give as long notice as possible of such a decision but it was brought to my notice that the temporary reduction of other openings for young men, owing to the existing financial depression, would enable the selection of candidates for the Colonial Service in 1932 to be carried out under peculiarly favourable conditions, and that the initial difficulties which must inevitably attend any radical change of system would thus be reduced to a minimum. On the other hand, should the change be postponed, it was quite possible that an exceptionally favourable opportunity for establishing the position of the Colonial Service as a first class career might have been missed. I did not feel justified in taking so serious a risk and accordingly felt it necessary to treat the matter as one of urgency and to announce the change in time for it to be introduced in connection with the selection of candidates in 1932.

  12. As this despatch will, no doubt, be of interest to officials and to members of the public in the territories immediately affected by the decision, I have to request that it may be published locally in such a manner as may commend itself to you.

FINDING.

  We find that the S.S. Sui Tai, official No. 120998 of Hong Kong, of which Com- mander T. Pritchard, R.N.R., was master (Certificate of Competency No. 033476, London) left Macao at 2 p.m. on the 12th March, 1932, on a voyage to Hong Kong.

  When at a point approximately North-east, three quarters of a mile from the northern extremity of Cheung Chau Island she sighted the S.S. Venezia at least one point on her starboard bow, the Venezia being on an opposite course. Visibility about one cable.

  Under the circumstances, we consider that the Master of the Sui Tai acted in a correct manner by putting his helm to starboard and going astern on his port engine, and we therefore adjudge him to be entirely free of blame for the collision which ensued.

  Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hong Kong, this 30th day of March, 1932.

QUESTIONS.

6. The Hon. Mr. R. H. KOTEWALL, C.M.G., LL.D., pursuant to notice, asked the

following questions:-

1. In view of the great hardship which residents of the rider-main districts are suffering in having to obtain their water supply from the street foun-- tains in this hot weather, will the Government, as an experiment, restore the supply to the houses in these districts on the same restriction in re- spect of hours of supply, so as to give the people an opportunity to prove that, in the present acute state of the water situation, they are able to keep down consumption of water obtained through such direct supply, to the same level as that through the street supply; on the understand- ing that every effort is made by the three Chinese members of the Legislative Council to impress upon the people the imperative necessity for conserving every drop of water, and that the street supply will be reverted to, should it be found that the consumption of a direct house supply appreciably exceeds that of a street supply.

2. Will the Government state whether any houses in the rider-main districts have been disconnected from the rider-mains and, if so, will it give the reasons for its action, in view of the statement made by His Excellency the Governor, Sir Cecil Clementi, in this Council on the 23rd Septem- ber, 1929, (Hansard 1929, p. 232), namely:

"It will, of course, be impossible to discard the rider-main system until there is an assured supply of water available both on the island and on the mainland throughout the year; and the Government will certainly give this Council an opportunity to debate the matter before the rider-mains are abolished."

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

1. The Government does not feel justified in reopening the rider-mains. The Director of Public Works has a scheme under consideration by which a longer period of supply can be given from street fountains, while a shorter supply will be made available for those on metered supplies. It is hoped that this scheme will be ready for operation in the course of the next few days. It is not cousidered safe to allow unmetered supplies in houses until the position improves.

2. In February last it was decided in Executive Council that universal meterage should be introduced as soon as possible, and that in the rider-main districts the cost of transferring existing house-services from the rider-mains to principal mains should be borne by public funds. Considerable progress has been made with this scheme, and a large number of meters have been fixed within the rider-main areas. Government will give this Council an opportunity to discuss the pro- posal for the abolition of the rider-main system generally before the filling of the reservoirs makes the reintroduction of the rider-main system a practical possibility.
