No. 23/1940.

APPROACHES TO HONG KONG-EAST LAMMA CHANNEL.

   On and after 3rd February, 1940, a Controlled Minefield will exist in the East Lamma Channel, and passage is prohibited whenever the Signals displayed in Admiralty Notice to Mariners No. 1 of 1939, paragraph 2, are displayed.

These signals, consisting of three Red Balls by Day and three Red Lights by Night, will be hoisted by the Port War Signal Stations at MOUNT DAVIS and BLUFF POINT (TAITAM PENINSULAR), and will be repeated by Patrol Craft in the vicinity, but Mariners are warned that Patrol craft may not always be on duty.

These signals, when displayed at BLUFF POINT, concern ships arriving, and when displayed at MOUNT DAVIS, concern ships departing. When displayed at BLUFF POINT, no vessel is to proceed North of the line joining UN KOK (LAMMA) to BLUFF POINT. When displayed at MOUNT DAVIS, no vessel is to proceed East of the line joining MOUNT DAVIS Port War Signal Station and PA KOK (LAMMA).

   Ships departing by the SULPHUR and EAST LAMMA Channels are to keep about 3 cables from SHEKTONGTSUI POINT and ensure that their Departure Signals are clearly visible both to the Port War Signal Station at MOUNT DAVIS and the Detaining Battery. Ships arriving are to close BLUFF POINT so that they can be recognized by the Port War Signal Station.

Great caution is necessary when approaching in thick weather, and unless Mariners can clearly see that the "Port Closed" signals are not hoisted at BLUFF POINT Port War Signal Station, they should assume that the Port is closed and keep well clear of the East Lamma Channel.

The above instructions will apply to any ocean going steamers which are directed to use the East Lamma Channel.

No. 24/1940.

APPROACHES TO HONG KONG-EAST LAMMA CHANNEL.

USE OF EAST LAMMA CHANNEL BY SMALL CRAFT CONSTRUCTED OF IRON

OR STEEL OR WOODEN CRAFT LOADED WITH IRON OR STEEL.

  On and after Saturday, 3rd February, 1940, small craft constructed of iron and steel, or wooden craft loaded with iron and steel, are prohibited from using the East Lamma Channel when the "Port Closed" Signals (3 Red Balls) are hoisted at either MOUNT DAVIS or BLUFF POINT Port War Signal Stations.

  When departing, they are not to cross the line joining MOUNT DAVIS and PA KOK (LAMMA) until the "Port Closed" signals have been lowered at MOUNT DAVIS. When arriving, they are not to cross the line joining UN KOK (LAMMA) and BLUFF POINT, until the "Port Closed" signals have been lowered at BLUFF POINT.

  Under no circumstances are these craft to use the East Lamma Channel during dark hours and they are not to cross the lines given above later than 30 minutes before sunset, nor earlier than sunrise.

In thick weather they are particularly warned not to attempt to enter the East Lamma Channel unless they can clearly see that the "Port Closed" Signals have been lowered at the Port War Signal Stations.

These craft may proceed to or from ABERDEEN Harbour between Sunrise and Sunset, regardless of "Port Closed" Signals but are not to proceed South of Aberdeen Harbour. After passing about 3 cables clear of SHEKTONGTSUI, they are to keep close inshore and pass to the Northward of CHU KWU WAN (Magazine Island) and APLICHAU (Aberdeen Island).

No. 25/1940.

APPROACHES TO HONG KONG-EAST LAMMA CHANNEL.

River Steamers and small craft using the East Lamma Channel are to follow the instructions contained in Notice to Mariners No. 23/1940 of the 22nd January, 1940; except that they are not required to display Departure Signals. If they cannot make BLUFF POINT and see the Port War Signal Station clearly, they may take shelter in TAITAM BAY if desired, but are on no account to attempt to enter the East Lamma Channel without specific orders from the Naval Authorities.

On occasion when the Mount Davis Port War Signal Station is obscured by fog or mist, but the East Lamma Channel is clear enough for normal navigation, arrangements will be made if possible to permit River Steamers to depart. Under these circumstances they will be given special permission by the Extended Defence Officer, through the Detaining Officer, to leave at a specific time. This time is to be the time at which they will pass through the Sulphur Channel. They are then to pass close to SHEKTONG- TSUI POINT.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

Draft Bill.

No. S. 67. The following Bill is published for general information :--

[No. 17/39-25.1.40.-2.]

A BILL

Short title.

Amendments of Ordinance No. 10 of 1899, s. 22 (6).

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Merchant Shipping Ordinance,

1899.

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 Merchant Ship- ping Amendment Ordinance, 1940.

2. Sub-section (6) of section 22 of the Merchant Ship- ping Ordinance, 1899, is amended:-

(a) by the repeal of the words "shall be liable to a fine. not exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars in the four- teenth and fifteenth lines thereof and by the substitution therefor of the words "shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding two thousand five hundred dollars and to imprisonment for any term not exceeding six months "

(b) by the addition of the following paragraph at the end thereof :-

If the intended voyage is to any port in China which has not been opened at any time to foreign trade the Harbour Master may, at his absolute discretion, refuse to furnish a port clearance.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Article XLVII of the Treaty of Tientsin (1858) pro- vided that " British merchant vessels are not entitled to resort to other than the Ports of Trade declared open by this Treaty. They are not unlawfully to enter other Ports in China or to carry on clandestine Trade along the coast thereof. Any vessel violating this provision shall, with her cargo, be subject to confiscation by the Chinese Government "

2. Various ports were opened to foreign trade by that Treaty, some had been opened before by the Treaty of Nan- king, and others have been opened since.

}

119

3. The Treaty provisions do not appear to have been implemented by specific provisions in the Merchant Shipping Act or Ordinance, possibly because the liability to confisca- tion by the Chinese Government was in itself considered a sufficient deterrent.

4. Now however that the movements of the Chinese Customs preventive service are restricted by hostilities in the waters of the coast of China near the Colony the amendments to section 22 (6) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance, 1899, seem called for if the Treaty provisions are to be made effective.

5. By Article XXVI of the Royal Instructions, Bills relating to Treaty obligations or affecting Trade or shipping require either a clause suspending their operation until the signification of the Royal pleasure thereon or prior submission of the Bill for Royal instructions through the Secretary of State. The latter alternative was adopted in this case and His Majesty's instructions for the introduction of the Bill to the Legislative Council have been received.

The commencement of the exercise will be indicated by the sounding of the Air Raid Warning Signal, namely-a fluctuating blast from electric syrens extending over a period of three minutes, followed by the extinction of all lighting.

Harbour and Shipping:

 From sunset up to the sounding of the air raid warning syren, lights may be kept lighted provided that effective provisions have previously been made for the extinguish- ment or screening of all lights, so that all such lights can be extinguished or screened within a period of three minutes.

On the sounding of the air raid warning syren, all lights, including Navigation Lights, must be extinguished or obscured.

 Vessels under-way, when the air raid warning signal is sounded, should proceed to the nearest safe anchorage or make fast to a pier.

 Normal lighting may be resumed on the sounding of the "raiders passed" signal indicated by a steady blast from electric syrens extending over a period of three minutes.

 For the purpose of the exercise, the port will be closed between the hours of 1900 and 2100, and the above lighting restrictions imposed on shipping are subject to any instructions which may be issued by the Naval or Harbour Authorities.

(2) On the application of any person who proposes to deal in the course of trade in Hong Kong with an article or substance which is or is intended to be the same as, or equivalent to or a substitute for, the article or substance in respect of which the trade mark is registered, the Registrar may order that the right to the use of the trade mark given by the registration thereof shall be suspended-

(b) to such extent and for such period as the Registrar may consider necessary for enabling the applicant to render well-known and established some description of, or means of reference to, the article or substance with which he proposes to deal in the course of trade, being a description or means of reference which does not involve the use of the trade mark.

(3) Where an order has been made under the last fore- going sub-section, no action for passing off shall lie on the part of any person interested in the trade mark in respect of any use thereof which, by virtue of the order, is not an infringement of the right to the use thereof given by the registration thereof.

(3) No act requisite for enabling such a registration as aforesaid to be effected, in so far as it is done for that purpose and for that purpose only, shall, whether the registration is effected or not, be treated as a contravention of any of the provisions of section 4 of the Trading with the Enemy Ordin- ance, 1914, or of any rule of law relating to intercourse or dealings with or for the benefit of enemies.

(4) References in this section to an application of an enemy shall be construed as including references to an application of an enemy jointly with any other person, whether an enemy or not.

(a) that the doing of the act within the time so limited was prevented by a person's being on active service or by 2 & 3 Geo. 6, any other circumstances arising from the existence of a state of war which, in the opinion of the Registrar, justify an extension of the time so limited; or

(b) that, by reason of circumstances arising from the existence of a state of war, the doing of the act within the time so limited would have been or would be injurious to the rights or interests of the person by or on whose behalf the act is or was to be done or to the public interest.

(3) The powers conferred by this section may be exer- cised notwithstanding that the exercise thereof benefits, whether directly or indirectly, an enemy or an enemy subject.

7.

3. Provision is made in clause 4 to enable an enemy to file an application for registration of a trade mark but no certificate will be issued until the conclusion of the war.

4. Power is given to the Chief Justice to make rules and prescribe fees with the approval and concurrence of the Legislative Council.

5. The provisions of the Patents, Designs, Copyright and Trade Marks (Emergency) Act, 1939, have been followed closely, but references to patents, designs and copyright have been omitted for the following reasons:-

4. The only variation occurs in the first sentence of clause 3 where the words "by order notified in the Gazette under the hand of the Colonial Secretary" are substituted for the words in the model draft "by order published in the Gazette "

A BILL

INTITULED

[No. 17/39-25.1.40.-2.]

An Ordinance to amend the Merchant Shipping Ordinance,

1899.

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 Merchant Ship- Short title. ping Amendment Ordinance, 1940.

2. Sub-section (6) of section 22 of the Merchant Ship- Amendments ping Ordinance, 1899, is amended:

of Ordinance No. 10 of 1899, s. 22

(a) by the repeal of the words "shall be liable to a fine (6). not exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars. in the four- teenth and fifteenth lines thereof and by the substitution therefor of the words "shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding two thousand five hundred dollars and to imprisonment for any term not exceeding six months "

196

(b) by the addition of the following paragraph at the end thereof :

If the intended voyage is to any port in China which has not been opened at any time to foreign trade the Harbour Master may, at his absolute discretion, refuse to furnish a port clearance.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Article XLVII of the Treaty of Tientsin (1858) pro- vided that "British merchant vessels are not entitled to resort to other than the Ports of Trade declared open by this Treaty. They are not unlawfully to enter other Ports in China or to carry on clandestine Trade along the coast thereof. Any vessel violating this provision shall, with her cargo, be subject to confiscation by the Chinese Government ".

2. Various ports were opened to foreign trade by that Treaty, some had been opened before by the Treaty of Nan- king, and others have been opened since.

3. The Treaty provisions do not appear to have been implemented by specific provisions in the Merchant Shipping Act or Ordinance, possibly because the liability to confisca- tion by the Chinese Government was in itself considered a sufficient deterrent.

4. Now however that the movements of the Chinese Customs preventive service are restricted by hostilities in the waters of the coast of China near the Colony the amendments to section 22 (6) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance, 1899, seem called for if the Treaty provisions are to be made effective.

5. By Article XXVI of the Royal Instructions, Bills relating to Treaty obligations or affecting Trade or shipping require either a clause suspending their operation until the signification of the Royal pleasure thereon or prior submission of the Bill for Royal instructions through the Secretary of State. The latter alternative was adopted in this case and His Majesty's instructions for the introduction of the Bill to the Legislative Council have been received.

(3) Where an order has been made under the last fore- going sub-section, no action for passing off shall lie on the part of any person interested in the trade mark in respect of any use thereof which, by virtue of the order, is not an infringement of the right to the use thereof given by the registration thereof.

(b) that, by reason of circumstances arising from the existence of a state of war, the doing of the act within the time so limited would have been or would be injurious to the rights or interests of the person by or on whose behalf the act is or was to be done or to the public interest.

(2) An extension under this section of the time for doing any act-

(a) may be for any period that the Registrar thinks fit, notwithstanding that by or under any Ordinance power is conferred to extend the time for doing that act for a specified period only; and

(a) the fact that the address of any person registered in the register of trade marks kept under the Trade Marks Ordinance, 1909, is an address in enemy territory within the meaning of the Trading with the Enemy Ordinance, 1914, shall be primâ facie evidence that that person is resident in that territory; and

(b) the fact that in any such register a person is stated to be of a particular nationality shall be prima facie evidence that he is of that nationality.

(2) No order made by the Registrar under this Ordin- ance shall be held to be invalid by reason only that any decision made for the purposes of the order that a particular person is an enemy or an enemy subject is wrong.

Objects and Reasons.

1. The object of this bill is to suspend the trade mark rights in Hong Kong of an enemy or an enemy subject where it is difficult or impracticable to describe an article or sub- stance without the use of such trade mark.

2. The effect of the bill is to enable persons desiring to trade in products formerly protected by trade marks registered in the names of enemies and enemy subjects to obtain a licence suspending the rights of such enemies and enemy subjects for such period as will enable the new product to become known on the local market.

3. Provision is made in clause 4 to enable an enemy to file an application for registration of a trade mark but no certificate will be issued until the conclusion of the war.

4. Power is given to the Chief Justice to make rules and prescribe fees with the approval and concurrence of the Legislative Council.

5. The provisions of the Patents, Designs, Copyright and Trade Marks (Emergency) Act, 1939, have been followed closely, but references to patents, designs and copyright have been omitted for the following reasons:--

(1) only patents already registered in the United King- dom can be registered in this Colony;

(2) there is no register of designs in Hong Kong;

(3) the Imperial Copyright Act, 1911, is applicable to this Colony.

Objects and Reasons.

1. In Chapter III, 1, of their Report (Sessional Paper No. 1 of 1940) the War Revenue Committee recommended that the Government should proceed with measures on the lines of a War Revenue Bill included as an Appendix to the Report.

2. A Resolution of the Legislative Council endorsing that recommendation was passed at the Council's meeting of the 7th March, 1940.

3. Since the Report was published certain suggestions of slight verbal alterations, chiefly of a clarifying nature, have been considered. In so far as these suggestions have been approved they have been embodied in the Bill now presented. They are set out in the Table of Variation attached.

Objects and Reasons.

1. In Chapter III, 1, of their Report (Sessional Paper No. 1 of 1940) the War Revenue Committee recommended that the Government should proceed with measures on the lines of a War Revenue Bill included as an Appendix to the Report.

2. A Resolution of the Legislative Council endorsing that recommendation was passed at the Council's meeting of the 7th March, 1940.

3. Since the Report was published certain suggestions of slight verbal alterations, chiefly of a clarifying nature, have been considered. In so far as these suggestions have been approved they have been embodied in the Bill now presented. They are set out in the Table of Variation attached.

other rights.

Objects and Reasons.

1. The terms of the concession granted to the Hong Kong Telephone Company Limited are contained in the Telephone Ordinance, No. 9 of 1925, as amended by the Telephone Amendment Ordinances, No. 9 of 1930 and No. 27 of 1933.

2. Under these Ordinances the company's dividend was restricted to 12 per cent. plus half of profits up to a further 6 per cent. the other half going to reduce subscription rates and in no case was the dividend payable to shareholders to exceed 15 per cent. (See Ordinance No. 9 of 1925, s. 36). Thus one half of the profits betweeen 12 per cent. and 18 per cent, and all profits above 18 per cent. was to be devoted to reducing the rates payable by the subscribers.

3. The Company's directors have argued, in discussions with the Government's Financial Advisers during recent months, that the absolute limit of a 15 per cent. dividend is inequitable because the high rate of profits which the Company has been able to earn has been due largely to its efficiency and partly to the profits on the line to Canton which was not in existence when the original arrangement was made.

4. A reasonable objection to an absolute maximum is that it gives the company no incentive to earn profits by greater efficiency and economy after that maximum reached.

5. Moreover the existing subscription rates are regarded as reasonably low and further contribution to the public. revenue by way of royalty and a contribution of certain free lines for Government purposes has been considered a reason- able basis for settlement in existing circumstances.

6. The proposed amendments are shown in greater detail in the attached Table of Correspondence.

7. The Bill is to be introduced as a Government measure: but its terms have been agreed to by the directors of the company.

(1) In payment of a dividend on the paid-up capital for the time being of the Company which (save as in the next sub-section provided) shall not exceed twelve per cent. per annum.

(2) If the net profits be such that a larger dividend than twelve per cent. per annum on the paid-up capital for the time being of the Company could be paid, the sum representing an amount not exceeding a further six per cent, per annum upon the paid-up capital for the time being of the Com- pany shall be paid as to one-half thereof by way of increase of divi- dends to the shareholders of the Company and as to the balance thereof be set aside for the benefit of subscribers by way of reduction of the rates set out in the Schedule, or in such revised rates as are herein- after provided for, and any further profits in excess of the said further six per cent. per annum shall be applied by the Company solely for the reduction of the rates payable by subscribers; so that the maximum dividend payable to the shareholders shall under no circumstances what- ever exceed fifteen per cent. per ammun upon such paid-up capital as aforesaid.

(3) The rate of dividend shall not be increased by the payment of any bonus or by any other colourable means of increasing the dividend, nor shall any other shares or class of shares bearing or capable of bearing a higher rate of interest be sub- stituted".

(4) Any dispute which may arise. under section 35 or under this section as to the amount of the net profits of the Company or as to their dis- posal or division or as.to their proper application for the reduction of rates payable by subscribers shall be ferred to arbitration under the provi- sions of section 49.

Saving of rights of

rown and certain other rights.

Objects and Reasons.

1. The terms of the concession granted to the Hong Kong Telephone Company Limited are contained in the Telephone Ordinance, No. 9 of 1925, as amended by the Telephone Amendment Ordinances, No. 9 of 1930 and No. 27 of 1933.

2. Under these Ordinances the company's dividend was restricted to 12 per cent. plus half of profits up to a further 6 per cent. the other half going to reduce subscription rates and in no case was the dividend payable to shareholders to exceed 15 per cent. (See Ordinance No. 9 of 1925, s. 36). Thus one half of the profits betweeen 12 per cent. and 18 per cent. and all profits above 18 per cent. was to be devoted to reducing the rates payable by the subscribers.

3. The Company's directors have argued, in discussions. with the Government's Financial Advisers during recent months, that the absolute limit of a 15 per cent. dividend is inequitable because the high rate of profits which the Company has been able to earn has been due largely to its efficiency and partly to the profits on the line to Canton which was not in existence when the original arrangement was made.

4. A reasonable objection to an absolute maximum is that it gives the company no incentive to earn profits by greater efficiency and economy after that maximum is reached.

5. Moreover the existing subscription rates are regarded as reasonably low and further contribution to the public revenue by way of royalty and a contribution of certain free lines for Government purposes has been considered a reason- able basis for settlement in existing circumstances.

6. The proposed amendments are shown in greater detail in the attached Table of Correspondence.

7. The Bill is to be introduced as a Government measure; but its terms have been agreed to by the directors of the

company.

The net profits of the Company as defined in section 35 shall be dealt with in the following manner namely:

(1) In payment of a dividend on the paid-up capital for the time being of the Company which (save as in the next sub-section provided) shall not exceed twelve per cent. per annum.

(2) If the net profits be such that a larger dividend than twelve per cent. per annum on the paid-up capital for the time being of the Company could be paid, the sum representing an amount not exceeding a further six per cent. per annum upon the paid-up capital for the time being of the Com- pany shall be paid as to one-half thereof by way of increase of divi- dends to the shareholders of the Company and as to the balance thereof be set aside for the benefit of subscribers by way of reduction of the rates set out in the Schedule, or in such revised rates as are herein- after provided for, and any further profits in excess of the said further six per cent. per annum shall be applied by the Company solely for the reduction of the rates payable by subscribers, so that the maximum dividend payable to the shareholders shall under no circumstances what- ever exceed fifteen per cent. per annum upon such paid-up capital as aforesaid.

(3) The rate of dividend shall not be increased by the payment of any bonus or by any other colourable means of increasing the dividend, nor shall any other shares or class of shares bearing or capable of bearing a higher rate of interest be sub- stituted".

(4) Any dispute which may arise under section 35 or under this section as to the amount of the net profits of the Company or as to their dis- posal or division or as to their proper application for the reduction of rates payable by subscribers shall be re- ferred to arbitration under the provi- sions of section 49.

The repeal of the final paragraph of section 37 is necessitated by the new provisions of section 36. The repealed paragraph stated-

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

No. S. 152.-The following is published for general information.

REPORT

of

The members of the Standing Law Committee of the Legislative Council on the

War Revenue Bill, 1940.

The members of the Standing Law Committee have con- sidered the Bill and various amendments suggested to them by the Legal Sub-Committee of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce and by others who have made a close study of the provisions of the Bill.

As a result of this consideration they recommend the amendments set out in the appendix to this Report.

In clause 2 of the Bill-

(a) In the definition of " owner

(iii) substitute "

,,

and" in the first line;

means "for" includes" in the second

and/or " for "and" in the second line.

The object of these amendments is to make provision for those cases where the land and the improvements thereon are separately owned.

,,

(b) After the definition of "profits add the following

definition :-

CC

profits made from transactions in the Colony" means the whole profits except such portion thereof as is properly attributable to the transactions of an office situated outside the Colony".

1 ༤

357

It is considered that the references in Chapter IV of the Bill to corporation, trade, profession or business profits made from transactions in the Colony" needs a clarifying definition in clause 2.

line.

CC

In clause 6 of the Bill-

delete the word

normally" at the end of the second

It is considered that this amendment will make the mean- ing clearer.

In clause 9 of the Bill--

add the words "leave pay," after "salary line of sub-section (1) (i).

""

in the first

This will make it clearer that "leave pay" is to be treated as of the same nature as a "salary".

In clause 11 of the Bill-

add the following paragraph at the end of sub-section (1) :

"(iv) in the case of a married woman no allowance shall be made for a child in respect of whom such allowance has been made in favour of her husband".

This will prevent the allowance being claimed twice in respect of the same child.

In clause 16 of the Bill--

add the words "for the purpose of producing the profits" after the words "(e) interest paid or payable" at the end of the clause.

It is considered that this addition will make the meaning clearer.

In clause 21 of the Bill---

substitute the words "the manager or' for the second word "any" in the third line of sub-section (3).

This will make the sub-section conform with the previous paragraph.

In clause 25 of the Bill-

(i) delete the words "the amount of" in the third line; (ii) delete the word "owned" in the last line.

It is considered that these amendments will make the meaning clearer.

In clause 40 of the Bill-

substitute "a quorum shall consist of three members for "a quorum shall consist of two members" in the fifth line of sub-clause (4).

It is considered that a quorum should consist of more than two to cover cases where the chairman has a second or casting vote.

Incidence of taxes under this Ordinance.

358

In clause 44 of the Bill---

add the following sub-section----

(7) Appeals from decisions of the Supreme Court under this section shall be governed by the provisions of the Supreme Court Ordinance, 1873, the Code of Civil Procedure, the Full Court Ordinance, 1933, and the Orders and Rules governing appeals to the Privy Council.

This is to remove doubts which have arisen from the language of the first part of the section which seemed too

restrictive.

In clause 60 of the Bill--

renumber this clause as 61 and insert the following new clause as clause 60:-

60. Taxes under this Ordinance shall, subject to the provisions of this Ordinance and notwithstanding anything contained in any other written law or in any convention grant or agreement, be charged at the rates specified in Chapters II, III and IV for the year of assessment commencing on the first day of April, 1940, and for each subsequent year of assessment in respect of the property, income and profits of every person for the year preceding the year of assessment, but without prejudice to any provisions of this Ordinance which enact that tax is to be charged in particular cases in respect of property, income and profits for a period other than the year preceding the year of assessment.

The object of this new clause is to remove doubts which have arisen as to the incidence and starting date of all four taxes under the Bill.

A BILL

Short title.

New paragraph 3 (1A) for Ordinance

No. 40 of 1932.

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Summary Offences Ordinance,

1932.

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 Summary Offences Amendment Ordinance, 1940.

2. Section 3 of the Summary Offences Ordinance, 1932, is amended by the insertion immediately after paragraph (1) thereof of the following paragraph-

(1A) in or into a public place or vehicle or any building to which the public have access, spits except into a receptacle or channel for sewage, sullage or waste water;

Objects and Reasons.

1. Clause 2 of this bill adds to section 3 of the principal Ordinance a paragraph including indiscriminate spitting in public places, vehicles and buildings in the category of nuisances punishable on summary conviction by fine or imprisonment.

2. Pulmonary tuberculosis is a serious menace to health and life in Hong Kong and indiscriminate spitting, a habit unfortunately prevalent among certain classes in this Colony, is an important factor in spreading the disease. The present measure extends to public places the prohibition against indis- criminate spitting now enforced, in dairies, milk shops, eating houses, restaurants, food factories, food shops, markets, slaughter-houses and laundries, by by-laws made by the Urban Council. It is recommended by the Urban Council as neces- sary in the interests of public health and supported by the District Watch Committee and by a large body of public opinion in this Colony.

3. The gradual enforcement of the provision introduced by this bill is regarded by the local health authorities as urgently necessary if the spread of tuberculosis is to be checked.

Signification of orders, etc., of the Governor.

Addition of new section to follow s. 45 of

Ordinance

No. 31 of

1911.

Power of Governor to delegate authority.

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Interpretation Ordinance, 1911.

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 Interpretation Amendment Ordinance, 1940.

2. Section 45 of the Interpretation Ordinance, 1911, is hereby repealed and replaced as follows:-

45. Where under any Ordinance the Governor is given power to make any appointment, give any directions, issue any order, authorize any thing or matter to be done, grant any exemption, remit any fee or penalty, or exercise any other power, it shall be sufficient if the exercise of such power by the Governor be signified under the hand of the Colonial Secretary or of the Principal Assistant Colonial Secretary :

Provided always that the foregoing provision shall not apply to the power of the Governor to make any rules, or issue any warrants or proclamations which shall be made or issued only under the hand of the Governor himself.

3. The following new section shall be inserted in the Interpretation Ordinance, 1911, to follow section 45 there-

of:

45A. When by any Ordinance the Governor is empowered to exercise any powers or perform any duties, he may, unless by law expressly prohibited from so doing, depute any person by name or the person for the time being holding the office designated by him to exercise such powers or perform such duties on his behalf, subject to such conditions, exceptions and qualifications as the Governor may prescribe, and there- upon or from the date specified by the Governor the person so deputed shall have and exercise such powers and perform such duties subject as aforesaid :

Provided that, subject to the provisions of any Royal Instructions relating to the appointment of a Deputy to the Governor, nothing herein contained shall authorize the Governor to depute any person to make rules, issue warrants or proclamations or to hear any appeal.

.

381

Objects and Reasons.

1. Section 45 of the principal Ordinance permits orders of the Governor to be signified under the hand of the Colonial Secretary or the Principal Assistant Colonial Secretary. Clause 2 of this Bill, which replaces section 45, is somewhat wider in its scope, extending the permission to signify to such matters as the grant of exemptions, the remittance of fees and the exercise of any other power whatsoever. Clause 2 is identical with section 10 of the Interpretation and General Clauses Ordinances, Cap. 87 of the 1935 Revised Edition (amended by Ordinance No. 21 of 1938) of the Laws of the Uganda Protectorate, except that the words "Colonial Secretary and Principal Assistant Colonial Secretary" are substituted for the words "Chief Secretary to the Government" and

and "Deputy Chief Secretary" respectively.

CC

2. Clause 3 of the Bill which is taken from section 14 of the Interpretation and General Clauses Ordinance, Cap. 87 of the 1935 Revised Edition (as amended by Ordinance No. 21 of 1938) of the Laws of the Uganda Protectorate, gives the Governor power to delegate authority to the holders of various offices. This power is very desirable in order to avoid the unnecessary delay and trouble involved in forwarding documents for the perusal and signature of the Governor where the matters in question are of a routine nature, easily determinable by the head of a department. This power to delegate is practically universal in the Colonies.

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 Fire Investiga- Short title. tion Amendment Ordinance, 1940.

2. Section 2 of the Fire Investigation Ordinance, 1895, is amended by the repeal of the words " either personally or by some officer of police of grade not lower than inspector and by the substitution therefor of the words "by the police officer in charge of the district or by such police officer as shall be deputed by the Superintendent in charge of the Division".

3. Section 4 of the Fire Investigation Ordinance, 1895, of Ordinance is amended by the insertion of the words "or the police officer in charge of the district or such police officer as shall be deputed by the Superintendent in charge of the Division" after the words "rank of inspector ".

1895, s. 4.

Objects and Reasons.

1. Section 2 of the Fire Investigation Ordinance, 1895, requires, inter alia, the Commissioner of Police to make or cause to be made a full and minute inspection and a detailed report of premises where a fire has taken place or where attempted arson is suspected and it requires that he shall do this "either personally or by some officer of police of grade not lower than inspector ".

2. The growth of the Colony and of the Police Force since 1895 as well as the establishment of police stations in outlying districts has rendered it necessary and convenient for the inspections and reports to be made by the police officer in charge of the districts concerned, some of whom have not reached the rank of inspector, or by some other officer deputed for the purpose by the Superintendent in charge of the Division.

3. Clause 2 of the Bill substitutes accordingly the words "by the police officer in charge of the district or by such police officer as shall be deputed by the Superintendent in charge of the Division ".

4. Similarly section 4 of the Ordinance which deals with subsequent magisterial investigations as to the causes of fires gives certain rights of audience to any police officer not below the rank of inspector". :

(C

5. In some cases it is more convenient and desirable to give the exercise of these rights of audience to the officer who had personally inspected the premises and made the report.

or

6. Clause 3 of the Bill adds accordingly the words the police officer in charge of the district or such police officer as shall be deputed by the Superintendent in charge of the Division" after the words

after the words "rank of inspector".

2. It is considered necessary to extend, for the duration of the War, the scope of the Ordinance to all tenements in the Colony except furnished dwellings let at a rent which includes payments in respect of board and residence.

3. The reason for this extension is to prevent landlords passing on to their tenants the War Taxes or anticipated War Taxes imposed on them under the War Revenue Ordinance, 1940.

In introducing the Bill for the latter Ordinance to the Legislative Council the Financial Secretary said "I am authorized to state that if any attempt is made generally to pass on the Property Tax to tenants Government is prepared to introduce such legislation as may be considered necessary to prevent this."
