Short title.

New sections

28A-28F for Ordin- ance No. 2 of 1889.

Admis-

sibility of document-

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Evidence Ordinance, 1889.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Evidence Amend- ment Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Evidence Ordinance, 1889, is amended by the insertion of the following sections immediately after section 28 thereof :-

28A. (1) In any civil proceedings where direct oral evidence of a fact would be admissible, any statement made by ary evidence a person in a document and tending to establish that fact shall, on production of the original document, be admissible as evidence of that fact if the following conditions are satisfied, that is to say-

as to facts in issue.

(i) if the maker of the statement either-

$

(a) had personal knowledge of the matters dealt with by the statement; or

(b) where the document in question is or forms part of a record purporting to be a continuous record, made the state- ment (in so far as the matters dealt with thereby are not within his personal knowledge) in the performance of a duty to record information supplied to him by a person who had, or might reasonably be supposed to have, personal knowledge of those matters; and

(ii) if the maker of the statement is called as a witness in the proceedings:

Provided that the condition that the maker of the state- ment shall be called as a witness need not be satisfied if he is dead, or unfit by reason of his bodily or mental condition to attend as a witness, or if he is beyond the seas and it is not reasonably practicable to secure his attendance, or if all reasonable efforts to find him have been made without success.

(2) In any civil proceedings, the court may at any stage of the proceedings, if having regard to all the circumstances of the case it is satisfied that undue delay or expense would otherwise be caused, order that such a statement as is mentioned in sub-section (1) of this section shall be admissible

17

as evidence or may, without any such order having been made,

admit such a statement in evidence-

(a) notwithstanding that the maker of the statement is available but is not called as a witness;

(b) notwithstanding that the original document is not produced, if in lieu thereof there is produced a copy of the original document or of the material part thereof certified to be a true copy in such manner as may be specified in the order or as the court may approve, as the case may be.

(3) Nothing in this section shall render admissible as evidence any statement made by a person interested at a time when proceedings were pending or anticipated involving a dispute as to any fact which the statement might tend to establish.

(4) For the purposes of this section, a statement in a document shall not be deemed to have been made by a person unless the document or the material part thereof was written, made or produced by him with his own hand, or was signed or initialled by him, or otherwise recognized by him in writing as one for the accuracy of which he is responsible.

(5) For the purpose of deciding whether or not a state- ment is admissible as evidence by virtue of the foregoing provisions, the court may draw any reasonable inference from the form or contents of the document in which the statement is contained, or from any other circumstances, and may, in deciding whether or not a person is fit to attend as a witness, act on a certificate purporting to be the certificate of a registered medical practitioner, and where the proceedings are with a jury, the court may in its discretion reject the statement notwithstanding that the requirements of this section are satisfied with respect thereto, if for any reason it appears to it to be inexpedient in the interests of justice that the statement should be admitted.

28B. (1) In estimating the weight, if any, to be attached to a statement rendered admissible as evidence by section 28A, regard shall be had to all the circumstances from which any inference can reasonably be drawn as to the accuracy or otherwise of the statement, and in particular to the question whether or not the statement was made contem- poraneously with the occurrence or existence of the facts. stated, and to the question whether or not the maker of the statement had any incentive to conceal or misrepresent facts.

(2) For the purpose of any rule of law or practice requiring evidence to be corroborated or regulating the manner in which uncorroborated evidence is to be treated, a state- ment rendered admissible as evidence by section 28A shall not be treated as corroboration of evidence given by the maker of the statement.

28C. Subject as hereinafter in this Part provided, in any proceedings, whether civil or criminal, an instrument to the validity of which attestation is requisite may, instead of being proved by an attesting witness, be proved in the manner in which it might be proved if no attesting witness were alive :

Provided that nothing in this section shall apply to the proof of wills or other testamentary documents.

28E. The court may at any stage of any proceedings by order direct that specified facts may be proved at the trial by affidavit with or without the attendance of the deponent for cross-examination, notwithstanding that a party desires his attendance for cross-examination and that he can be pro- duced for that purpose.

28F.-(1) In sections 28A, 28B, 28C, 28D and 28E- "document" includes books, maps, plans, drawings and photographs;

"statement" includes any representation of fact, whether made in words or otherwise;

(a) prejudice the admissibility of any evidence which would apart from the provisions of the said sections be admissible; or

(b) enable documentary evidence to be given as to any declaration relating to a matter of pedigree, if that declaration would not have been admissible as evidence if the said sections had not been enacted.

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1935.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Dangerous Drugs Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1935, is amended by the insertion of the following new section after section 18 thereof :-

Disposal of fines and estreated

bail.

18A. All fines under this Ordinance, and any bail in respect of any charge under this Ordinance, which may be estreated by the Court or a magistrate, shall be paid into a special account and may be disposed of as the Governor may direct.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Authority has been obtained from the Secretary of State for the payment of fines and estreated bail in dangerous drug cases into a special account. Present legislation only authorizes such payment in cases arising under the Opium Ordinance, 1932, (see Ordinance No. 7 of 1932, s. 41):

2. The object of this Bill is to authorize the same. procedure for disposal of fines and estreated bail in cases arising under the Dangerous Drugs Act, 1935, as is at present followed in cases arising under the Opium Ordinance, 1932, but in the new section of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance the words "the Court or" are inserted before the words magistrate" to cover any case in which the bail may be estreated by the Supreme Court and not by a magistrate.

2. The Government House and City Development Scheme Repeal of Ordinance, 1934, is repealed.

Objects and Reasons.

1. As indicated in Sessional Paper No. 13 of 1938, His Excellency the Governor's memorandum printed therewith and paragraph 11 of the Financial Secretary's memorandum on the Estimates for 1939, it has been decided to abandon the Government House and City Development Scheme, as planned in 1934 and financed by a special Fund established under Ordinance No. 30 of that year, and to finance the proposed new Government House and further city development without having to resort to a special Fund.

2. Provision is made in section 4 (3) of that Ordinance for the appropriation to general revenue of any balance to the credit of the Fund "when the said scheme is completed or abandoned", and it may well be that that provision is sufficient to give effect to the plan now contemplated.

2. Section 3 of the Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, of Ordinance 1938, is amended by renumbering sub-section (1), (2), (3), (4), (5) and (6) as sub-sections (2), (3), (4), (5), (6) and (7) respectively and by the insertion of the following sub-section as sub-section (1):

and 5 for Ordinance No. 6 of 1938 and consequent renumbering of present sections 4, 5 and 6.

Substitution

for section

6 (3) of Ordinance

No. 6 of

1938 as re- numbered.

(1) During the continuance in force of this Ordinance, a landlord's common law rights of re-entry are suspended, except where the tenant has abandoned possession, and if in purported exercise of common law rights, otherwise than where the tenant has abandoned possession, a landlord effects or attempts to effect such re-entry, either peaceably or forcibly, the tenant shall have a civil remedy against him for an injunction and damages without prejudice to any statutory liability of the landlord to criminal proceedings.

**

3. The Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, 1938, is amended by the renumbering of sections 4, 5 and 6 as sections 6, 7 and 8 thereof and by the addition of the following sections immediately after section 3:--

4. In respect of a dwelling house to which this Ordinance applies, the court shall, in addition to any powers which it may have under this or any other enactment, in any proceed- ings have power to determine any question in relation to the rent payable or to be paid by a sitting tenant.

5. Before the issue of any warrant under the Distress for Rent Ordinance, 1883, the judge or the Registrar, as the case may be, may require proof to his satisfaction that the tenant is unwilling to pay the rent demanded or that such rent is not excessive.

4. Section 6 of the Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, 1938, as renumbered by section 2 of this Ordinance, is amended by the substitution of the following sub-section for sub-section (3) thereof―

:

- 71

(3) An appeal by the tenant or the landlord shall lie from the decision of a reference committee on any question sub- mitted to it under sub-section (2). Such appeal shall be made in a summary manner to a judge in chambers within one month from the date of the decision.

5: Section 6 of the Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, 1938, as renumbered by section 2 of this Ordinance, is further amended by the addition thereto of the following sub-section-- (4) Any decision of a reference committee on any question submitted to it under this section may by leave of the court be enforced in the same manner as a judgment or order of the court to the same effect.

New sub- for section 6 of Ordinance

section (4)

No. 6 of 1938 as renumbered.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Clause 2 of the Bill adds a new sub-section (1) to section 3 of the Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, No. 6 of 1938, and makes a consequential renumbering of the existing sub-sections.

2. The principal Ordinance contained no express provision preventing a landlord exercising his common law rights of re-entry and so defeating the object of the Ordinance.

3. These common law rights are thus stated in 20 Hailsham's Halsbury s. 315 :-

"Where the tenant fails to deliver up possession, the landlord is entitled to re-enter and take possession, subject only to certain statutory restrictions. Thus he can re-enter where the tenant has abandoned possession, or where he can effect entry peaceably; and even if he enters forcibly, and is thus liable to criminal proceedings under the statutes, yet the tenant has no civil remedy against him, in respect of the re-entry, or in respect of the eviction, if no more force than is necessary is used."

4. The object of the new sub-section is to suspend the landlord's common law rights during the continuance in force of the principal Ordinance, except where the tenant has abandoned possession, and also to give to the tenant a civil remedy by way of injunction and damages.

5. Clause 3 of the Bill renumbers sections 4, 5 and 6 of the Prevention of Eviction Ordinance, No. 6 of 1938, as sections 6, 7 and 8 thereof and adds two new sections 4 and 5 to the principal Ordinance, of which new section 4 gives to the court similar powers to those which a reference committee has to determine any question in relation to the rent payable or to be paid by a sitting tenant under section 4 (2) of the principal Ordinance.

6. Cases have occurred in which landlords have sought to evade the provisions of the principal Ordinance by not collecting rent, or avoiding receipt of rent when the tenant attempts to render it, and then exercising their powers of distress under the Distress for Rent Ordinance, 1883. In such cases it is often difficult to show that there has been any wrongful distress. New section 5 therefore, added by clause

72

3 of this Bill to the principal Ordinance, gives a judge or the Registrar, as the case may be, power to require proof to his satisfaction that the tenant is unwilling to pay the rent demanded or that such rent is not excessive.

7. Clause 4 of this Bill substitutes a new sub-section (3) in section 6 of the principal Ordinance as renumbered in which the wording of the old sub-section which it replaces has been altered to make it clear that the right of appeal from a decision of a reference committee may be exercised either by a landlord or a tenant.

8. Clause 5 of this Bill adds a new sub-section (4) to section 6 of the principal Ordinance as renumbered providing for the enforcement by leave of the court of decisions of reference committees on questions submitted to them by the tenants and landlord in the same manner as judgments or orders of the court to the same effect.

A BILL

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Evidence Ordinance, 1889.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Evidence Amend- Short title. ment Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Evidence Ordinance, 1889, is amended by the New insertion of the following sections immediately after section 28 thereof :-

28A. (1) In any civil proceedings where direct oral evidence of a fact would be admissible, any statement made by a person in a document and tending to establish that fact shall, on production of the original document, be admissible as evidence of that fact if the following conditions are satisfied, that is to say-

(i) if the maker of the statement either-

(a) had personal knowledge of the matters dealt with by the statement; or

(b) where the document in question is or forms part of a record purporting to be a continuous record, made the state- ment (in so far as the matters dealt with thereby are not within his personal knowledge) in the performance of a duty to record information supplied to him by a person who had, or might reasonably be supposed to have, personal knowledge of those matters; and

(ii) if the maker of the statement is called as a witness in the proceedings:

Provided that the condition that the maker of the state- ment shall be called as a witness need not be satisfied if he is dead, or unfit by reason of his bodily or mental condition to attend as a witness, or if he is beyond the seas and it is not reasonably practicable to secure his attendance, or if all reasonable efforts to find him have been made without success.

(2) In any civil proceedings, the court may at any stage of the proceedings, if having regard to all the circumstances of the case it is satisfied that undue delay or expense would otherwise be caused, order that such a statement as is mentioned in sub-section (1) of this section shall be admissible

sections 28A-28F for Ordin- ance No. 2 of 1889.

as evidence or may, without any such order having been made, admit such statement in eviden

() notwithstanding that th maker of the statement is available but is not called as a witness;

(b) notwithstanding that the original document is not produced, if in lieu thereof there is produced a copy of the original document or f the material part thereof certified to be a true copy in such manner as may be specified in the order or as the court may approve, as the case may be.

(3) Nothing in this section shall render admissible as evidence any statement made by a person interested at a time when proceedings were pending or anticipated involving a dispute as to any fact which the statement might tend to establish.

(4) For the purposes of this section, a statement in a document shall not be deemed to have been made by a person unless the document or the material part thereof was written, made or produced by him with his own hand, or was signed or initialled by him or otherwise recognized by him in writing as one for the accuracy of which he is responsible.

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Betting Duty Short title. Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. Section 5 of the Betting Duty Ordinance, 1931, is Amendments amended-

(a) by the deletion of the words "hawking of chances in the streets or in the first line of sub-section (2);

(b) by the addition of the following sub-section as sub- section (3) :--

(3) No person shall sell or offer for sale any tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets recording the numbers of the chances allocated for any cash-sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuel, except-

Objects and Reasons.

1. The hawking of chances in the streets is forbidden by part of sub-section (2) of section 5 of the Betting Duty Ordinance, 1931.

2. The object of this Bill is to extend that prohibition so as to forbid the sale or offering for sale of any tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets recording the numbers of the chances allocated for any cash sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuel, except at places authorized in writing by the Commissioner of Police for such sales, and then only in accordance with the conditions (if any) contained in such authorization, or except on the premises or at the offices of the club conducting the cash sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuei betting, to which the tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets relate.

3. Since some one or more of the clubs conducting betting under the principal Ordinance have introduced the plan of selling books of ten tickets for the price of nine, shops and commission agents have found the purchase of such books, with a view to reselling their contents singly, a profitable line of business, which has resulted in tickets being offered for sale in various stores and in the hawking of them round offices and business premises.

4. The effect of the Bill will not be to prevent the sale of books of tickets at a discount, but it will enable the Commissioner of Police to limit the number of places at which tickets may be sold and to bring the method of sale under greater control.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Light hydrocarbon oils, as defined in clause 2 (h) and (k) of this Bill including the oils specified in the fourth schedule thereto have had to pay a duty under section 6 (1) of the Motor Spirit Ordinance, No. 4 of 1930.

2. This duty was originally 15 cents per gallon, but it was raised to 25 cents in 1931 and to 30 cents in 1936 (Government Notifications Nos. 584 and 667 of 1931 and 571 of 1936).

3. It is now proposed to impose a similar duty on such heavy hydrocarbon oils as are to be used as fuel in heavy oil road vehicles. For definitions see clause 2 (f), (h) and (k)

of this Bill.

4. To give effect to this proposal by amendment of the 1930 Ordinance would involve amending its title and almost every section therein and regulation thereunder.

5. It has been decided therefore that it would be prefer- able to replace the 1930 Ordinance by a new Ordinance in which all its provisions and the regulations thereunder have been reviewed and revised not only in the light of the new proposal relating to heavy oils, but also in the light of importation and export by ship, air, road or train. The development of air-traffic, the building of a road to China and the linking up of railways in China having made such review and revision necessary.

6. A table of correspondence is attached, showing the variations between this Bill and the law it is intended to replace when enacted.

of future

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the law relating to the professional qualifications required in the case of Judges of the Supreme Court and Full Court.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Supreme Court and Full Court Ordinances Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, is amended by the insertion of the following new section after section 10 thereof :--

10A. No person shall be appointed to be Chief Justice, qualifications or Puisne Judge or a temporary additional judge or shall be deemed a fit and proper person to fill the office of the Chief Justice or of any Puisne Judge under section; 9 or section 10 unless--

judges.

Amendment

of Ordinance No. 8 of 1933, s. 2 (4).

Ordinance No. 3 of 1873.

(i) he is qualified to practise as an advocate in a Court in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or some other part of His Majesty's dominions having unlimited jurisdiction either in civil or criminal matters, and

(ii) he has been qualified for not less than five years to practise as an advocate or solicitor in such a Court.

3. Sub-section (4) of section 2 of the Full Court. Ordin-- ance, 1933, is amended by the deletion of the words "or a barrister who has previously held or has acted in any judicial office in the Colony, or a barrister of not less than seven years standing, temporarily appointed by the Governor from time to time for the purpose of this Ordinance," and by the substitution thereof of the words "or a person with the qualifications for judicial office required by section 10A of the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, and appointed in accordance with the provisions of section 10 thereof."

Objects and Reasons.

1. The establishment of a Colonial Legal Service, the members of which are liable to transfer from one Colony to another, makes it important that the provisions of the law relating to the qualifications of Judges should be uniform throughout the Colonial Empire.

223

2. To promote such uniformity the Secretary of State, by a circular despatch dated the 29th July, 1938, has requested that an early opportunity be taken to arrange for a provision in the local statute law requiring that no person shall be appointed to be a Judge of the Supreme Court unless :--

(i) he is qualified to practise as an advocate in a Court in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or some other part of His Majesty's dominions having unlimited jurisdiction either in civil or criminal matters, and

he has been qualified for not less than five years to practise as an advocate or solicitor in such a Court.

3. The difference in wording employed in the two sub- clauses above is for the purpose of providing for the case of a solicitor who subsequently gets called to the Bar.

4. Clause 2 of the Bill provides for the insertion of a new section in the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, containing the provision required with its two sub-clauses.

5. Clause 3 of the Bill makes a corresponding amendment of the Full Court Ordinance, 1933, so far as it relates to judges appointed locally.

6. Under section 2 (4) of the Full Court Ordinance, No. 8 of 1933, the Judge of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China (if the Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has consented to such appointment) is eligible to serve as a judge of the Full Court. Moreover two Judges of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China are among the four Judges appointed with the approval of the Lord Chancellor under rule 2 (2) of the Hong Kong (non- domiciled parties) Divorce Rules, 1936, to exercise jurisdic- tion here under the Indian and Colonial Divorce Jurisdiction Act, 1926 (see Hong Kong Government Gazette Notifications No. 15 of 1936 and Nos. 470 and 782 of 1937).

7. It is not considered desirable in a Hong Kong Ordinance to regulate in any way the qualifications of Judges of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China. Their qualifications are regulated by Article 7 of the China Order in Council, 1925, (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1925, No. 603) which requires them to be members of the Bar of England, Scotland or Northern Ireland of not less than seven years standing.

WHEREAS it is provided by section 4 of the Public Ordinance Reclamation Validation and Clauses Ordinance, 1936, that in No. 40 of any future Ordinance authorizing any undertaking for reclama- tion or other works of a public nature over and upon unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, provisionally and subject to the definitive approval of the Governor in Council, the provisions of Part II of that Ordinance shall be deemed to be incorporated unless expressly varied or excepted by such Ordinance :

AND WHEREAS it is considered desirable to authorize provisionally and subject to such approval certain of such undertakings:-

2. A pier approximately 15,640 square feet in area projecting into the harbour beyond the said reclamation and shown and delineated in green upon the said plan.

3. A temporary pier (approximately 80 feet long and 25 feet wide) projecting into the harbour between the said reclamation and Douglas Wharf about midway between Pottinger Street and Douglas Street, and shown and delineated hatched red upon the said plan.

Objects and Reasons.

1. As stated in the preamble to this Bill, it was provided by the Public Reclamations Validation and Clauses Ordinance. No. 40 of 1936, that the provisions of Part II of that Ordinance (which relates to the notification of projected reclamations and public works over unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, to the hearing of objections, to the payment of compensation where due and to the extinction of pre-existing public and private rights) shall be deemed to be incorporated, unless expressly varied or excepted, in any future Ordinance authorizing any undertaking for reclamation or other works of a public nature over and upon unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, provisionally and subject to the definitive approval of the Governor in Council.

2. The object of this Bill is to give such provisional authorization in the case of the reclamation and piers described in the Schedule.

3. The Bill is drafted on the general lines of Ordinance No. 21 of 1937, the Stores Pier (North Point) and Additional Pipe Lines Ordinance, 1937, with an additional clause applying section 6 of Ordinance No. 40 of 1936 to one of the projected undertakings for a limited period only.

4. Section 6 of the 1936 Ordinance provided (subject to sections 7, 8 and 9 thereof) for the complete extinction of pre-existing public and private rights in, upon and over the Crown foreshore and sea bed affected by the authorized undertaking. In the case of a temporary pier it is unnecessary to extinguish such rights for longer than the pier continues to be required and maintained.

2. This duty was originally 15 cents per gallon, but it was raised to 25 cents in 1931 and to 30 cents in 1936 (Government Notifications Nos. 584 and 667 of 1931 and 571 of 1936).

3. It is now proposed to impose a similar duty on such heavy hydrocarbon oils as are to be used as fuel in heavy oil road vehicles. For definitions see clause 2 (f), (h) and (k) of this Bill. Heavy oils with a flash point of under 66 degrees C (corresponding to 150 degrees F) are exempted as they are not considered suitable for use as fuel in such vehicles.

4. To give effect to this proposal by amendment of the 1930 Ordinance would involve amending its title and almost every section therein and regulation thereunder.

5. It has been decided therefore that it would be prefer- able to replace the 1930 Ordinance by a new Ordinance in which all its provisions and the regulations thereunder have been reviewed and revised not only in the light of the new proposal relating to heavy oils, but also in the light of importation and export by ship, air, road or train. The development of air-traffic, the building of a road to China and the linking up of railways in China having made such review and revision necessary.

6. A table of correspondence is attached, showing the variations between this Bill and the law it is intended to replace when enacted.

A BILL

Short title.

Amendment

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Protection of Women and Girls

Ordinance, 1938.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Women and Girls Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. Section 14 of the Women and Girls Ordinance, 1938, of Ordinance is amended by the addition at the end thereof of the following

paragraph :-

No. 5 of 1938, s. 14.

Any such order shall be sufficient authority to any constable to enter (by force, if needful) into the premises and give possession of the same, or any part thereof specified in the order, to the landlord or his agent: Provided that such entry shall not be made at any time except between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Provided also that the powers given by this section shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any powers conferred by or under any other enactment.

Objects and Reasons.

1. When a magistrate has made an order under section. 14 determining the tenancy of premises, the occupant is there- after to be treated as a trespasser. If he is requested by the landlord to vacate the premises he usually refuses and the landlord is obliged to take proceedings in court to make the order effective. It is often desirable that a more speedy and statutory remedy to enforce removal of the trespassing occupant should exist. Such a remedy already exists in the case of premises used as a heroin factory-see section 21 of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1935, as amended by section 3 of the Dangerous Drugs Amendment Ordinance, 1938.

2. The amendment now made by this Bill follows the wording of the provision in the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance and gives a speedy method for removing an occupant who uses his premises contrary to section 12 of the Ordinance.

March, 1939.

Attorney General.

Objects and Reasons.

1. It will be remembered that at the meeting of the Legis- lative Council held on the 22nd December, 1938, reported on pages 193 and 194 of the Hong Kong Hansard for that year, the Colonial Secretary bore a message from His Excellency the Governor conveying the conditional approval of His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom of a method of assessment for the annual contributions to that Government by the Colony for its defence, commonly called "the Military Contribution ", in respect of the years 1939 to 1943 inclusive.

2. The essential terms of that approval were that the Governor's proposal for a fixed annual contribution of $6,000,000 for the quinquennium 1939-1943 was accepted subject to the following conditions:--

(i) If in any year the sterling value of this fixed sum, calculated at the average rate of exchange for the year, should fall below £350,000, or in the event of a formal devaluation of the dollar which would reduce the value below that figure, the amount of the contribution shall be at once reviewed without waiting for the end of the quinquennial period.

(ii) The Colony shall not pay in any year more than the actual cost of the garrison in that year.

(iii) That acceptance of the system of a fixed annual contribution is regarded as an experiment subject to review at the end of the first quinquennium, with the proviso that if the experiment is found to be unsatisfactory the Army Council or the Colony may propose to revert to the present basis of calculation of the contribution at the end of the 1939-1943 quinquennium.

3. The object of this Bill is to make statutory provision for the new method of assessment.

4. A Table of Correspondence is attached showing the source of the various clauses of this Bill.

Amendments of Ordinance No. 40 of 1931, s. 5.

An Ordinance to amend the Betting Duty Ordinance, 1931.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Betting Duty Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. Section 5 of the Betting Duty Ordinance, 1931, is amended-

(a) by the deletion of the words "hawking of chances in the streets or' in the first line of sub-section (2);

(b) by the addition of the following sub-section as sub- section (3):-

(3) No person shall sell or offer for sale any tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets recording the numbers of the chances allocated for any cash-sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuel, except-

(i) at places authorized in writing by the Commissioner of Police for such sales, and then only in accordance with the conditions (if any) contained in such authorization; or

(ii) on the premises or at the offices of the club con- ducting the cash-sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuel betting, to which the tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets relate.

Objects and Reasons.

1. The hawking of chances in the streets is forbidden. by part of sub-section (2) of section 5 of the Betting Duty Ordinance, 1931.

2. The object of this Bill is to extend that prohibition so as to forbid the sale or offering for sale of any tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets recording the numbers of the chances allocated for any cash sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuel, except at places authorized in writing by the Commissioner of Police for such sales, and then only in

305

accordance with the conditions (if any) contained in such authorization, or except on the premises or at the offices of the club conducting the cash sweep, totalizator or pari-mutuei betting, to which the tickets, lists, receipts or other substitutes for tickets relate.

3. Since some one or more of the clubs conducting betting under the principal Ordinance have introduced the plan of selling books of ten tickets for the price of nine, shops and commission agents have found the purchase of such books, with a view to reselling their contents singly, a profitable line of business, which has resulted in tickets being offered for sale in various stores and in the hawking of them round offices and business premises.

4. The effect of the Bill will not be to prevent the sale of books of tickets at a discount, but it will enable the Commissioner of Police to limit the number of places at which tickets may be sold and to bring the method of sale under greater control.

A BILL

[No. 6-16.2.39.-1.]

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the law relating to the professional qualifications required in the case of Judges of the Supreme Court and Full Court.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Supreme Court Short title. and Full Court Ordinances Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, is amended by the insertion of the following new section after section 10 thereof :-

New section 10A added

to Ordinance No. 3 of 1873.

qualifications

10A. No person shall be appointed to be Chief Justice, Professional or Puisne Judge or a temporary additional judge or shall be of future deemed a fit and proper person to fill the office of the Chief judges. Justice or of any Puisne Judge under section 9 or section 10 unless--

(i) he is qualified to practise as an advocate in a Court in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or some other part of His Majesty's dominions having unlimited jurisdiction either in civil or criminal matters, and

(ii) he has been qualified for not less than five years to practise as an advocate or solicitor in such a Court.

of Ordinance

s. 2 (4).

3. Sub-section (4) of section 2 of the Full Court Ordin- Amendment ance, 1933, is amended by the deletion of the words "or a No. 8 of barrister who has previously held or has acted in any judicial 1933, office in the Colony, or a barrister of not less than seven years standing, temporarily appointed by the Governor from time to time for the purpose of this Ordinance," and by the substitution thereof of the words "or a person with the qualifications for judicial office required by section 10A of the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, and appointed in accordance Ordinance with the provisions of section 10 thereof."

No. 3 of

1873.

Objects and Reasons.

1. The establishment of a Colonial Legal Service, the members of which are liable to transfer from one Colony to another, makes it important that the provisions of the law relating to the qualifications of Judges should be uniform throughout the Colonial Empire.

g

310

2. To promote such uniformity the Secretary of State, by a circular despatch dated the 29th July, 1938, has requested that an early opportunity be taken to arrange for a provision. in the local statute law requiring that no person shall be appointed to be a Judge of the Supreme Court unless :-

(i) he is qualified to practise as an advocate in a Court in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or some other part of His Majesty's dominions having unlimited jurisdiction either in civil or criminal matters, and

(ii) he has been qualified for not less than five years to practise as an advocate or solicitor in such a Court.

3. The difference in wording employed in the two sub- clauses above is for the purpose of providing for the case of a solicitor who subsequently gets called to the Bar.

4. Clause 2 of the Bill provides for the insertion of a new section in the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, containing the provision required with its two sub-clauses.

5. Clause 3 of the Bill makes a corresponding amendment of the Full Court Ordinance, 1933, so far as it relates to judges appointed locally.

6. Under section 2 (4) of the Full Court Ordinance, No. 8 of 1933, the Judge of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China (if the Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has consented to such appointment) is eligible to serve as a judge of the Full Court. Moreover two Judges of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China are among the four Judges appointed with the approval of the Lord Chancellor under rule 2 (2) of the Hong Kong (non- domiciled parties) Divorce Rules, 1936, to exercise jurisdic tion here under the Indian and Colonial Divorce Jurisdiction Act, 1926 (see Hong Kong Government Gazette Notifications No. 15 of 1936 and Nos. 470 and 782 of 1937).

7. It is not considered desirable in a Hong Kong Ordinance to regulate in any way the qualifications of Judges of His Britannic Majesty's Supreme Court for China. Their qualifications are regulated by Article 7 of the China Order in Council, 1925, (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1925, No. 603) which requires them to be members of the Bar of England, Scotland or Northern Ireland of not less than seven years standing.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Light hydrocarbon oils, as defined in clause 2 (h) and (k) of this Bill including the oils specified in the fourth schedule thereto have had to pay a duty under section 6 (1) of the Motor Spirit Ordinance, No. 4 of 1930.

2. This duty was originally 15 cents per gallon, but it was raised to 25 cents in 1931 and to 30 cents in 1936 (Government Notifications Nos. 584 and 667 of 1931 and 571 of 1936).

3. It is now proposed to impose a similar duty on such heavy hydrocarbon oils as are to be used as fuel in heavy oil road vehicles. For definitions see clause 2 (f), (h) and (k) of this Bill. Heavy oils with a flash point of under 66 degrees C (corresponding to 150 degrees F) are exempted as they are not considered suitable for use as fuel in such vehicles.

4. To give effect to this proposal by amendment of the 1930 Ordinance would involve amending its title and almost every section therein and regulation thereunder.

5. It has been decided therefore that it would be prefer- able to replace the 1930 Ordinance by a new Ordinance in which all its provisions and the regulations thereunder have been reviewed and revised not only in the light of the new proposal relating to heavy oils, but also in the light of importation and export by ship, air, road or train. development of air-traffic, the building of a road to China and the linking up of railways in China having made such review and revision necessary.

A BILL

INTITULED

An Ordinance to authorize an undertaking for the reclamation of an area of sea bed to abut the Jubilee Street Ferry Pier approaches and Connaught Road to the Eastward of such approaches between Queen Victoria Street and Pottinger Street and for construction of a pier extending seawards from such reclamation and also for the construc- tion of a temporary pier between the said reclamation and Douglas Wharf.

No. 40 of

1936.

WHEREAS it is provided by section 4 of the Public Ordinance Reclamation Validation and Clauses Ordinance, 1936, that in any future Ordinance authorizing any undertaking for reclama- tion or other works of a public nature over and upon unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, provisionally and subject to the definitive approval of the Governor in Council, the provisions of Part II of that Ordinance shall be deemed to be incorporated unless expressly varied or excepted by such Ordinance :

AND WHEREAS it is considered desirable to authorize provisionally and subject to such approval certain of such undertakings:-

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Queen Victoria Short title. Street Eastward Reclamation and Piers Ordinance, 1939.

2. The Director of Public Works is authorized, provision- Director ally and subject to the definitive approval of the Governor in Works Council, to construct the undertakings set out in the Schedule. given

provisional authority to construct certain

3. The provisions of section 6 of the Public Reclamations Validation and Clauses Ordinance, 1936,, shall, in so far as it relates to the temporary pier described in the third item in the Schedule, be deemed to be incorporated in this Ordinance for so long only as such temporary pier continues to be required and maintained.

SCHEDULE.

[s. 2.]

1. A reclamation, approximately 41,650 square feet in area, to abut the Jubilee Street Ferry Pier approaches and Connaught Road to the Eastward of such approaches between Queen Victoria Street

and Pottinger Street and shown and delineated in red upon a plan signed by the Director of Public Works dated the 2nd of February, 1939, and deposited in the Land Office.

2. A pier approximately 15,640 square feet in area projecting into the harbour beyond the said reclamation and shown and delineated in green upon the said plan.

3. A temporary pier (approximately 80 feet long and 25 feet wide) projecting into the harbour between the said reclamation and Douglas Wharf about midway between Pottinger Street and Douglas Street, and shown and delineated hatched red upon the said plan.

Objects and Reasons.

1. As stated in the preamble to this Bill, it was provided by the Public Reclamations Validation and Clauses Ordinance. No. 40 of 1936, that the provisions of Part II of that Ordinance (which relates to the notification of projected reclamations and public works over unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, to the hearing of objections, to the payment of compensation where due and to the extinction of pre-existing public and private rights) shall be deemed to be incorporated, unless expressly varied or excepted, in any future Ordinance authorizing any undertaking for reclamation or other works of a public nature over and upon unleased Crown foreshore and sea bed, provisionally and subject to the definitive approval of the Governor in Council.

2. The object of this Bill is to give such provisional authorization in the case of the reclamation and piers described in the Schedule.

3. The Bill is drafted on the general lines of Ordinance No. 21 of 1937, the Stores Pier (North Point) and Additional Pipe Lines Ordinance, 1937, with an additional clause applying section 6 of Ordinance No. 40 of 1936 to one of the projected undertakings for a limited period only.

4. Section 6 of the 1936 Ordinance provided (subject to sections 7, 8 and 9 thereof) for the complete extinction of pre-existing public and private rights in, upon and over the Crown foreshore and sea bed affected by the authorized undertaking. In the case of a temporary pier it is unnecessary to extinguish such rights for longer than the pier continues to be required and maintained.

A BILL

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Protection of Women and Girls

Ordinance, 1938.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Women and Girls Short title. Amendment Ordinance, 1939.

of Ordinance

2. Section 14 of the Women and Girls Ordinance, 1938, Amendment is amended by the addition at the end thereof of the following No. 5 of paragraph:----

Any such order shall be sufficient authority to any constable to enter (by force, if needful) into the premises and give possession of the same, or any part thereof specified in the order, to the landlord or his agent: Provided that such entry shall not be made at any time except between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.: Provided also that the powers given by this section shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any powers conferred by or under any other enactment.

1938, s. 14.

Objects and Reasons.

1. When a magistrate has made an order under section. 14 determining the tenancy of premises, the occupant is there- after to be treated as a trespasser. If he is requested by the landlord to vacate the premises he usually refuses and the landlord is obliged to take proceedings in court to make the order effective. It is often desirable that a more speedy and statutory remedy to enforce removal of the trespassing occupant should exist. Such a remedy already exists in the case of premises used as a heroin factory-see section 21 of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1935, as amended by section 3 of the Dangerous Drugs Amendment Ordinance, 1938.

2. The amendment now made by this Bill follows the wording of the provision in the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance and gives a speedy method for removing an occupant who uses his premises contrary to section 12 of the Ordinance.

Objects and Reasons.

1. It will be remembered that at the meeting of the Legis- lative Council held on the 22nd December, 1938, reported on pages 193 and 194 of the Hong Kong Hansard for that year, the Colonial Secretary bore a message from His Excellency the Governor conveying the conditional approval of His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom of a new method of assessment for the annual contributions to that. Government by the Colony for its defence, commonly called "the Military Contribution', in respect of the years 1939 to 1943 inclusive.

:

2. The essential terms of that approval were that the Governor's proposal for a fixed annual contribution of $6,000,000 for the quinquennium 1939-1943 was accepted subject to the following conditions:-

(i) If in any year the sterling value of this fixed sum, calculated at the average rate of exchange for the year, should fall below £350,000, or in the event of a formal devaluation of the dollar which would reduce the value below that figure, the amount of the contribution shall be at once reviewed without waiting for the end of the quinquennial period.

(ii) The Colony shall not pay in any year more than the actual cost of the garrison in that year.

(iii) That acceptance of the system of a fixed annual contribution is regarded as an experiment subject to review at the end of the first quinquennium, with the proviso that if the experiment is found to be unsatisfactory the Army Council or the Colony may propose to revert to the present basis of calculation of the contribution at the end of the 1939-1943 quinquennium.

3. The object of this Bill is to make statutory provision for the new method of assessment.

4. A Table of Correspondence is attached showing the- source of the various clauses of this Bill.
