new section to Ordinance No. 12 of 1916.

Objects and Reasons.

The object of this bill is to provide that the revenue appropriated for the service of the Hongkong War Loan shall be exempt from military contribution.

A BILL

--

1. This Ordinance may by cited as the Revenue Short title. Officers Power of Arrest Ordinance, 1917.

2. In this Ordinance "Revenue Officer" includes Interpreta- every person appointed to act as a revenue officer under tion. the provisions of any enactment specified in the First Schedule hereto.

3.-(1.) Any revenue officer may arrest without war- Power of rant any person found or reasonably suspected of com- arrest. mitting or attempting to commit, or employing, aiding or assisting any person to commit any offence against, or of the unlawful possession of any article liable to forfeiture under, the provisions of any enactment speci- fied in the Second Schedule hereto.

Power to amend Schedules.

Repeal of Ordinances Nos. 6 of 1913 and

Post Office Amendment Ordinance, 1915. Importation and Exportation Ordinance,

Objects und Reasons.

It is desirable to make it clear that the powers con- ferred by Ordinance No 6 of 1913 are to be in addition to those conferred by any other enactment. This object is proposed to be effected by the addition of the appro-· priate words to the clause which at present appears as section 2 of Ordinance No. 6 of 1913. As that Ordi- nance is short and has already been amended once it seems to be the more convenient course to repeal it and the amending Ordinance and to re-enact the provisions of those two Ordinances with the above addition.

J. H. KEMP,

Attorney General.

Short title

A BILL

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Interpretation.

Ordinance, 1911.

BE it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Interpretation and construc- Amendment Ordinance, 1917, and shall be read and construed as one with the Interpretation Ordinance,

tion.

1.

79

1911, hereinafter called the Principal Ordinance, and Ordinance the said Ordinance and this Ordinance may be cited No. 31 of together as the Interpretation Ordinances, 1911 and 1917. 1911.

2. Section 9 of the Principal Ordinance is repealed Repeal of and the following section is substituted therefor :-

Exercise of statutory powers between pas- sing and com- mencement

of Ordinance. 52 & 53 Vict., c. 63, s. 37.

Ordinance No. 31 of

1911, s. 9.

and substi-

section.

9. Where an Ordinance confers power to make any appointment, to make, tution of new grant, or issue any instrument, that is to say, any Order in Council, order, warrant, scheme, letters patent, rules, regulations, or by-laws, to give notices, to prescribe forms, or to do any other thing for the purposes of the Ordi- nance, that power may, unless the con- trary intention appears, be exercised at any time after the passing of the Ordi- nance, so far as may be necessary or expedient for the purpose of bringing the Ordinance into operation. at the date of the commencement thereof, subject to this restriction, that any instrument made under the power shall not, unless the contrary intention appears in the Ordinance, or the con- trary is necessary for bringing the Ordinance into operation, come into operation until the Ordinance comes into operation.

3. The definitions of "Revenue officer" and "Excise officer" in section 39 of the Principal Ordinance are repealed.

bjects and Reasons.

The object of clause 2 of this bill is to make it clear that powers conferred by an Ordinance may be exercised at any time after the passing of the Ordinance, even before its commencement, so far as may be necessary for the purpose of bringing the Ordinance into opera- tion. This was clearly the intention of the existing section, but the reference in that section to the suspen- ding of an Ordinance might be construed as limiting the section to Ordinances which contain a suspending clause. The section which it is now proposed to sub- stitute follows as closely as possible the wording of the corresponding section, section 37, in the United King- dom Interpretation Act, 1889. It is not possible to follow the wording of the Act exactly. because an Act of the Imperial Parliament comes into effect on the day on which the Royal Assent is given while an Ordinance in this Colony does not come into operation until the date of its publication in the Gazette.

66

*

Clause 3 of the bill repeals the definitions of "Re- venue officer and Excise officer" in the Principal Ordinance. The term Excise officer is no longer in use, the class of officers to whom it was formerly applied having ceased to exist. The subject of revenue officers is dealt with in a bill which will be introduced at the same meeting of the Legislative Council as this bill.

Meaning of "port" and "madeira' as applied to wine.

5 Geo. 5, c. 1, s. 1.

Ordinance No. 4 of 1890.

INTITULED

An Ordinance to make such provisions as are necessary to enable the Anglo-Portuguese Commercial Treaty to come into force as regards the Colony of Hongkong.

BE it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Anglo-Portu- guese Commercial Treaty Ordinance, 1917.

2. The description "port" or "madeira" applied to any wine or other liquor, other than wine the produce of Portugal and the island of Madeira respectively, shall be deemed to be a false trade description within the meaning of the Merchandise Marks Ordinance, 1890, and that Ordinance shall have effect accordingly:

Provided that it shall be a good defence to any pro- ceedings under that Ordinance in respect of such a des- cription as aforesaid if it is proved-

(a) that the wine or other liquor to which the description is applied is intended solely for exportation from the Colony; or

(b) in the case of any wine or other liquor sold or exposed for or kept in possession for sale within twelve months after the passing of this Ordinance, that the description applied thereto was lawfully so applied before the passing of this Ordinance.

Objects and Reasons.

It is proposed that this Colony shall signify its adherence to the recent Anglo-Portuguese Commercial Treaty, and Article 6 of that treaty requires adherents to restrict the use of the terms port and madeira to wine which is the produce of Portugal and Madeira respectively.

This bill, which is founded on the English Act, pro- vides for the necessary legislation. The Act and treaty were published in the Gazette of the 20th February, 1915.

7. It shall be lawful for the Governor in Council upon consideration of such report to order that a fine shall be imposed on the said village or on such area as he shall prescribe.

8.-(1.) Every such fine shall be apportioned by the Colonial Treasurer among all the owners of land in the said village or area prescribed, in the manner specified in sub-section (2) of this section, according to the amount of Crown rent or village rent payable by such owners respectively.

(2.) In the New Territories the Colonial Treasurer shall apportion the fine among all the persons whose names appear on the Crown rent roll for the said village or area, and elsewhere in the Colony among all the persons whose names appear either on the Crown rent roll or on the village reut roll for the said village or area.

9. The Crown Land Preservation Ordinance, 1910, is repealed.

Objects and Reasons.

One of the objects of this bill is to alter the composition of the body contemplated by the Crown Land Preservation Ordinance, 1910, for the purpose of enquiring into causes of damage to trees on Crown land or other Crown property with a view to the imposition of a fine on any village or area by the inhabitants of whom the damage was caused. In the New Territories the body will now consist of the District Officer and the Superintendent of the Botanical and Forestry Department instead of the District Officer and Assistant District Officer. In the rest of the Colony the body will consist of the Superintendent of the Botani- cal and Forestry Department and either the Secretary for Chinese Affairs or one of his Assistants,

The other object of the bill is to widen the incidence of the fine and thereby to make it fairer. Under the present Ordinance the fine falls on the owners who are on the Crown rent roll while the persons on the village rent roll

escape.

The form of the present Ordinance makes it somewhat difficult to amend, and this bill repeals it and re-enacts thre appropriate provisions.

In sections 16 and 21 (1) and (3) it is not clear whether the phrase "in respect of which an offence has been com- mitted" applies to "syringes and other appliances " as well as to "poison' or to "poison" only. The bill makes it clear that the reference is both to poisons and to syringes and other appliances.

In sections 18 and 19 the expression "every premises is not grammatical.

In section 21 (1) (a) the words "dwelling house, shop, building" were left in by mistake from a former draft.

In section 21 (1) (c) the words "or designated" are now inserted in order to enable a description to be inserted in a warrant where the name is not known.

In section 23 (1) a reference to ships is now added.

Objects and Reasons,

The object of this bill is to deal with certain points which have arisen in the course of the liquidations since the last amending Ordinance was passed.

Clause 1 is formal.

Clause 2 contains definitions of terms.

"Corporation under enemy control", "enemy", "enemy subject", "immovable property

" will retam the meaning which it has under the present Ordinances, and will not be affected by the defini- tion of "enemy in the bill. It was originally intended to use the term enemy subject" in the principal Ordinance and not the terin "alien enemy ", but the latter term was adopted in deference to the terminology which was being To abandon the used in the United Kingdom at the time. term now would require so many alterations in the existing Ordinances that it seems more convenient to retain it in spite of the fact that a certain amount of overlapping in the meanings of the terms used is thereby caused.

117

In order to clear up doubts as to whether arbitrations are legal proceedings for the purpose of the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Amendment Ordinance, 1915, "legal pro- ceeding " is defined as including an arbitration. The sec- tions affected are sections 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Ordinance No. 11 of 1915.

Clause 3 gives the Court wider power to stay legal pro- ceedings brought against liquidators. Cases may arise in which justice could not be done if the case were heard during the war, owing, for instance, to the impossibility of obtaining evidence, and it seems desirable that the decision on such a point should rest with a judicial tribunal and not with the executive. It is possible that the Court already has inherent jurisdiction in the matter but it seems advisable to give it express jurisdiction.

The same remarks apply to clause 4, which amends the section of Ordinance No. 11 of 1915 which deals with the staying of actions brought against alien enemies. This clause also extends that section to all legal proceedings including arbitrations.

Clauses 5 and 6 are intended to dispel possible doubts as to the existence of powers which have been, or may have to be, assumed. It will be noticed that the liquidators are declared to have power to transfer the property of the persons whose affairs they are winding up whether they can or can not produce the documents of title relating to such property.

Clause 7 expressly provides that a liquidator's powers pass to his successors in office.

Clause 8 provides that liquidators shall be at liberty to distribute the assets in the first instance on the footing that no interest accrues on any debt after the commence- ment of the winding up. This provision has been borrowed from the law relating to bankruptcy. The clause does not take away the right of the creditor to interest, if his debt carries interest, and any surplus assets may be applied in payment of such interest. The rights of secured creditors

are saved.

Clause 9 provides that unsecured debts payable to cre- ditors who are not enemies or enemy subjects shall take priority over unsecured debts payable to creditors who are enemies or enemy subjects.

Clause 10 introducęs a power of disclaimer, modelled on the power of disclaimer in bankruptcy, which may be made use of in the case of any leases which the liquidators have been unable to deal with otherwise. Any person injured by the disclaimer will be treated as a creditor of the alien enemy to the extent of such injury, and a right to obtain the decision of the Court on the amount of damage suffered is recognised. It will be noticed that sub-clause (3) pro- vides that where a liquidator has sub-let the premises with the consent of the lessor the latter shall not be entitled to distrain on such premises except for the rent payable under the sub-lease, and shall not be entitled to re-enter except for breach of some covenant contained in the sub- lease.

Clause 11 provides machinery for compelling secured creditors to realise their securities. On such realisation the secured creditor is to retain the amount to which he is entitled under the terms of the security and is to pay the balance to the liquidator. In case of dispute as to the amount to which the secured creditor is entitled the latter has a right to a decision of the Court on the point. It is of course possible that in some cases, owing to contingent Hiabilities, it will not be possible at present to define exactly the amount to which the secured creditor is entitled, and in such cases it may be necessary that the total proceeds should continue to be held by the secured creditor, if the total liability, ascertained and contingent, exceeds the amount of the proceeds.

Clause 12 provides for the euforcement of orders made by the Court on applications for directions,

118

4

Clauses 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 are intended to prevent any immovable property sold in the liquidations from pass- ing under the control of persons who now are enemies or enemy subjects. A reference to the definition in clause 2 will show that "probibited control" is defined so as to include control after the conclusion of peace by persons who are now enemies or enemy subjects. Both that term and the term 66

corporation under enemy control" have been defined as widely as possible in order to include every possible form of control by or on behalf of persons who are now enemies or enemy subjects. Clause 13 prohibits liquidators from transferring property to prohibited control. Clause 14 provides for statutory declarations being made to enable liquidators to test the bonâ fides of intending purchasers, The forms of these declarations are given in clause 22. Clause 15 prohibits purchasers of immovable property from the liquidators from transferring such property to prohibited control without the permission of the Governor. It also provides that any person contra- vening the provisions of the section shall forfeit to the Crown the sum of $50,000. The reference to the permis- sion of the Governor is intended to meet difficulties which might otherwise arise hereafter on the transfer of immovable property sold in the liquidations, as no doubt a time will eventually arrive when it will be very difficult to ascer- tain whether a sale will or will not involve a transfer to prohibited control as defined in this bill. In such cases the prohibited control suspected may be merely technical and of no practical importance, and it would seein undesirable that vendors should be unable to sell except at a depreciated price and at the risk of committing a technical offence, and equally undesirable that purchasers acting on all good faith should have to take property with a technical flaw in the title. Probably in such cases after due enquiry the Governor's permission would be given to the transfer. Clause 16 provides for the forfeiture of immovable property sold in liquidations which comes under probibited control. Clause 17.gives the Governor power to require particulars for the purpose of enabling him to ascertain whether apy such property is under prohibited control.

Clause 18 deals with the question of trade marks belong- ing to alien enemies. Now that the liquidations are coming to an end and the control of the liquidators for all practical purposes will soon cease it has become necessary to make some other provision in order to retain Govern- ment control over these marks and to prevent their use by unauthorised persons. The method adopted is to vest the trade marks in the Custodian, together with the goodwill of the trades in which they were used, It is also necessary to provide for the keeping of these marks on the register because when the liquidators have paid in all their surplus assets to the Custodian they will have no funds from which to pay renewal fees. This point is dealt with by providing that none of these marks shall be removed from the register for non-payment of renewal fees except by order of the Governor, and it is also provided that any such marks which have been removed for non-payment of renewal fees shall be restored to the register.

Clause 19 provides that the validity of acts done by liquidators is not to be questioned on the ground that at the time when the act was done the person whose affairs are being wound up was not an alien enemy, or had died, or, in the case of a corporate body, had ceased to exist. A somewhat similar provision appears in section 9 of the Trading with the Enemy Amendment Act, 1916.

Clause 20 provides that no legal proceeding of any kind shall be brought against any liquidator or public officer, except with the permission of the Governor, in respect of any act or omission connected with any winding up under the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Ordinances.

Clause 21 provides that the provisions of the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Ordinance shall continue for such period after the conclusion of the war as may seem proper to the Governor. The object of the clause is to provide an interval during which the whole position, both here and in other parts of the Empire and in enemy countries, may be considered. It may also be that on the conclusion of the war various questions as to the liabilities of firms which are being wound up will still be unsettled.

119

Clause 22 adds to the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Ordinance a schedule of the forms of declaration to be made by purchasers before the completion of sales of im- movable property sold in the liquidations.

Clause 23 contains two repeals. Sub-clause (1) repeals a definition of the terin .<

person.

(2.)

or (3) receives or harbours any woman or girl with intent that she shall be sold, pledged, let out to hire, purchased, taken in pledge, taken on hire or otherwise disposed of for the purpose of prostitution either within or without the Colony.

5 Section 26 of the principal Ordinance is amended by of Ordinance the substitution of the figures 21" for the figures "18", No. 4 of 1897, in the second line thereof.

s. 26.

Objects and Reasons.

The existing law has been found inadequate for the pur- pose of dealing with the serious offence of the abduction of unmarried girls. This is due to two reasons. In the first place the present section applies only where the girl has been taken out of the possession of her parent or guardian. It is believed that many girls get lost or run away from their homes and are then picked up by the kidnappers. In the second place it is necessary under the existing law for the prosecution to prove that the accused knew that the girl had been taken away from her parent or guardian against the will of the parent or guardian.

This is gene- rally very difficult to prove. The girl is generally either an unintelligent or an unwilling witness, and the facts relating to her leaving her home are often known to no one in the Colony except to herself and to the accused.

Clause 3 of the bill alters the law on these two points. It makes it an offence to harbour an unmarried girl who has left her parents or guardians without their consent, as well as to harbour a girl who has been taken out of the possession of her parents or guardians. It also throws on the accused, once it is proved that he knowingly harboured the girl, the onus of proving that he did not know that she left her parent or guardian without the consent of the parent or guardian.

It has also been thought advisable to raise the age in the case of this offence to 21 years. This amendment, by clause 5 of the bill, is also made in section 26 of the prin- cipal Ordinance.

4

The age is also raised to 21 in the case of offences under sub-section (1) of section 4 of the principal Ordinance.

The opportunity has been taken to transfer paragraph 2 of section 18 of the principal Ordinance to section 19 of that Ordinance, to which it appears more properly to belong.

5 Section 26 of the principal Ordinance is amended by of Ordinance the substitution of the figures 21" for the figures "18", No. 4 of 1897, in the second line thereof.

s. 26.

Objects and Reasons.

The existing law has been found inadequate for the pur- pose of dealing with the serious offence of the abduction of unmarried girls. This is due to two reasons. In the first place the present section applies only where the girl has been taken out of the possession of her parent or guardian. It is believed that many girls get lost or run away from their homes and are then picked up by the kidnappers. In the second place it is necessary under the existing law for the prosecution to prove that the accused knew that the girl had been taken away from her parent or guardian against the will of the parent or guardian.

This is gene- rally very difficult to prove. The girl is generally either an unintelligent or an unwilling witness, and the facts relating to her leaving her home are often known to no one in the Colony except to herself and to the accused.

Clause 3 of the bill alters the law on these two points. It makes it an offence to harbour an unmarried girl who has left her parents or guardians without their consent, as well as to harbour a girl who has been taken out of the possession of her parents or guardians. It also throws on the accused, once it is proved that he knowingly harboured the girl, the onus of proving that he did not know that she left her parent or guardian without the consent of the parent or guardian.

It has also been thought advisable to raise the age in the case of this offence to 21 years. This amendment, by clause 5 of the bill, is also made in section 26 of the prin- cipal Ordinance.

4

The age is also raised to 21 in the case of offences under sub-section (1) of section 4 of the principal Ordinance.

The opportunity has been taken to transfer paragraph 2 of section 18 of the principal Ordinance to section 19 of that Ordinance, to which it appears more properly to belong.

(2.) The powers conferred by this section shall be without prejudice to any powers already possessed by the Governor in Council.

Objects and Reasons.

There are three main objects in this bill. One is to relax during the war the requirements as to certificated officers in the case of river steamers. The second is to provide for the licensing of all launches, including those which are not licensed at present. The third is to give the Governor in Council general power to make regula- tions for the purpose of controlling the embarkation and landing of persons and goods on or from vessels of all kinds.

The abnormal conditions of the present war have caused a great shortage of competent and suitable certi- ficated officers, and it is proposed to relax some of the ordinary requirements in the case of river steamers. As segards the deck officers, it is proposed to substitute an extra Chinese pilot for the mate, so that river steamers will be able to run with a certificated master and 3 Chinese pilots. As regards the engineers, it is proposed to substitute for the secnd engineer, in cases where a second engineer is required, a Chinese engineer holding a certificate of competency from the Harbour Master and specially approved by the Harbour Master for the service contemplated in the bill. These provisions are contained in clause 2 of the bill.

Clause 3 repeals section 37 of the principal Ordinance and substitutes a new section. Under the new section it is intended to make regulations requiring all launches

139

to be licensed. The opportunity has been taken to re-cast and simplify this section, and to relegate to the regulations such provisions as seem more appropriate to regulations than to an Ordinance.

Clause 4 is intended to give a power which circum- stances connected with the war have shown to be desira- ble, but which may also be useful in times of peace.

The Panama Canal.

EXECUTIVE OFFICE

BALBOA HEIGHTS, C.Z., February 21, 1917.

Radio Time Signals.

  1. There has been installed by the Navy Department, at the Darien Radio Station, Canal Zone, a time transmitting clock so constructed as to send time signals by radio. The clock is adjusted daily to Washington Observatory time by radio signal, with a maximum error not to exceed five-tenths of a second, ordinarily not to exceed one-tenth of a second. The signal is sent out by radio each day at 1.00 p.m., 75th meridian time. This signal begins at 12.55 p.m., and continues for five minutes. During this interval every tick of the clock is transmitted by radio except the 29th second of each minute, the 55th to the 59th second of each of the first four minutes, and finally the 50th to the 59th second of the last minute. The 1.00 p.m. signal is a longer contact after the longer break. The wave length used is 4,000 meters and is sent out so that any ship with ordinary commercial receiving apparatus capable of tuning as high as 4,000 meters should be able to receive it.

  2. As the Navy Department of the United States has spared no expense in making the service reliable, it is desired that maximum benefits will result to shipping, and it is hoped that ship captains will communicate with the radio office at Darien, either by letter or radio, giving data as to distance of reception, clearness of signal, etc., in order that the service may be improved. If it is found that many merchant ships cannot tune to the 4,000 meter wave length, arrangements will be made to send time simultaneously from Colon Radio Station on a spark transmitter with shorter wave length.

This notification was published in the Hongkong Gazette of the 27th April, 1917.

Repeal of Ordinance No. 12 of 1916, s. 4, and sub- stitution of

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend further the War Loan

Ordinance, 1916.

Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the War Loan Second Amendment Ordinance, 1917, and shall be read and construed as one with the War Loan Ordinance, 1916, and with the War Loan Amendment Ordinance, 1917, and this Ordinance and the said Ordinances may be cited together as the War Loan Ordinances, 1916 and 1917.

2. Section 4 of the War Loan Ordinance, 1916, is repealed and the following section is substituted there- for :-

Redemption.

4.-(1.) Subject to the provisions of sub- sections (2) to (8), both inclusive, of this section, the bonds shall be redeemable at par on the 1st day of November, 1928, from and after which date all interest on the principal moneys represented thereby shall cease and determine, whether payment of the principal shall have been demanded or not.

(2.) At any time or times after the 31st day of October, 1921, the Governor may approve of the redemption by purchase of bonds of such denominations and to such respective total nominal values as he may from time to time determine.

(3.) At any time or times after the 31st day of October, 1921, the Governor may appoint a day for the drawing by lot of bonds of such denominations and to such respective total nominal values as he may from time to time determine.

(4.) If a day is appointed by the Governor for drawing, the Colonial Treasurer shall give, by advertisement in the Gazette, not less than fifteen days previous notice, specifying the day on which, and the hour and place at which, the drawing will take place, and the denominations and respective total nominal values of the bonds to be drawn.

(5.) On the day and at the hour and place so specified the Colonial Treasurer shall hold a meeting, at which the holder of any bond may, if he think fit, be present, and shall then in the presence of such bond holders, if any, ́ as may attend, draw by lot, out of the whole number of bonds for the time being outstanding of the respective denominations specified, bonds to such respective total nominal values as shall have been specified.

(6.) The Colonial Treasurer shall there- upon declare the distinguishing numbers of the bonds drawn for redemption, and shall, as soon as may be, by advertisement in the Gazette, specify those numbers and appoint a day, not being earlier than fifteen days from the day of the drawing and not being later than the day ou which the then current half-year's interest is payable, on which the principal moneys repre- sented by the bonds so distinguished will be repaid.

(7.) On the day so appointed there shall be paid to the holders of the bonds drawn for redemption, at the head office of the Hong- keng and Shanghai Banking Corporation, the principal moneys repesented by those bonds, with all interest payable thereon up to that day.

- 205

(8) From and after the day appointed for the repayment of any bond all interest on the principal moneys represented thereby shall cease and determine, whether payment of the principal shall have been demanded or not.

3. Section 7 of the War Loan Ordinance, 1916, is Amendment amended by the substitution of the words and figures of Ordi-

31st day of October" for the words and figures day of November in the first and second lines thereof.

6

30th of 1916,

nance No. 12.

s. 7.

Objects and Reasons.

It has been pointed out by the Crown Agents that the War Loan Ordinance, 1916, makes all interest cease on drawn bonds from the date of the drawing. The effect of this would be that a bond holder might not be able to claim his principal and interest so promptly as to avoid a certain loss of interest on the amount so claimed. It has therefore been decided to provide that at least fifteen days notice of the numbers drawn shall be given before the date on which the interest ceases to run.

The bill also provides for the mode of drawing in more detail than the principal Ordinance. It was originally intended that these details should be directed by the Governor under section 11 of the principal Ordinance, but it seems convenient to include them in this bill.

                   The pro- visions are based on the model of the General Loan and Inscribed Stock Orlinauce which is used in the case of loans domiciled with the Crown Agents.

The bill also corrects a discrepancy between the princi- pal Ordinance and the prospectus of the loan as to the date of redemption for bouds not previously redeemed by drawing or purchase. The date adopted in the bill is the 1st November, 1928, which was the date specified in the prospectus.
