ABBREVIATED ANNUAL MEDICAL REPORT FOR HONG KONG, 1940.

GENERAL HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS.

1. The health and sanitary conditions in Ilong Kong during 1940 continued to be influenced by the presence of several hundred thousand refugees from war areas in China, with resulting overcrowding, high rentals, increased cost of food and fuel and noticeable under-nutrition amongst a large proportion of the population.

2. Government and certain large employers of labour increased wages for their lowest paid employees, but not in proportion to the increase in the general cost of living.

GENERAL DISEASES.

3. Shortage of food of satisfactory quantity and quality was reflected in the appearance in epidemic form for the first time in the history of the Colony of a fatal form of pellagra (953 cases, 442 deaths). Deaths from beri beri, including the infantile type, rose from 3,189 in 1939 to 7,229 in 1940. Tuberculosis also took a higher foll with 5,751 deaths during the year under review as compared with 4,443 in 1939. These figures are all the more significant in view of the fact that the population at risk was lower at the end of 1940 than at the beginning of the year.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASES.

4. Communicable diseases are dealt with under "Hygiene and Sanitation". The cholera outbreak started late, but was attended by a high case mortality (66.2 per centum) and left behind an under-nourished community with a high 'carrier" rate amounting to over 20 per centum in certain congested districts. This combination, associated with a sadly defective system of nightsoil collection from 65,090 tenement floors, is likely to be followed by very serious consequences

in 1941.

    5. Smallpox was controlled to some extent by mass vaccination, over 24 million vaccinations being performed during the year. In relation to this, it should be remembered that British river steamers alone, brought to the Colony over one million passengers during 1940, all of whom were vaccinated before landing if they had not been so protected during the preceding three years.

6. Typhoid and dysentery continued to exact a heavy toll on human life and may be expected to do so in future until the primitive methods of town conservancy are finally eliminated, and the cost of food and fuel for the masses is more in keeping with their earnings.

VITAL STATISTICS.

 

1.

At midyear 1940 the population estimated on the normal intercensal increase numbered 1,071,893. To this must be added a further figure of about 750,000 representing the refugee factor.

S. Some 45,064 births were registered as compared with 46,675 m 1939 giving an uncorrected birth-rate of 41.9. The number of registered deaths was 61,010, a surplus of 12,727 over the corresponding figure for 1939. On the same basis, the uncorrected death-rate was 56.9. Amongst the deaths, 14,683 occurred in children under one year of age, resulting in an infant mortality rate of 327. The main causes of deaths are appended, together with the lists of diseases encountered amongst patients at the Government hospitals and Chinese hospitals under Government supervision.

    9. The financial year was altered from the calendar year to a period of fifteen months from the 1st of January, 1940, to the 31st of March, 1941, to coincide with the new financial year. In consequence, figures are not comparable for 1939 and 1940. The following have, however, been prepared for purposes of comparison :---

10. The total revenue of the Colony for the period January to December, 1940 was $52,894,478.72. The expenditure on medical and allied services was therefore 12.99 per centum of the whole.

POPULATION.

11. Although the surplus of immigrants by recognized sea and land routes exceeded the number of emigrants by 13,761, the number of deaths recorded (61,010) substantially exceeded for the first time the number of births registered (45,064), resulting in an actual decrease. of population. Another contributory cause of the decrease was the compulsory evacuation from the Colony of British European women and children in July, 1940, when about three thousand were sent to the Philippines and later to Australia. This had the effect of stimulating the departure of about 40,000 members of the Chinese community.

REFUGEES.

    12. Many of the refugees, having used up all the savings they had brought with them, became homeless and destitute.

13. The Medical Department continued to be responsible for their care and the population of the camps administered departmentally was usually in the neighbourhood of 10,000. Many of the members of this large family were repatriated immediately information was obtainable that living conditions were possible in their ancestral villages. Free passages and a small ex gratia grant from Government to help them on their journey, and clothes and rice for three days if they were crossing into Chinese territory constituted the principal forms of assistance given to repatriates.

1940-1941

NUTRITION.

14. The Nutrition Research Committee continued to carry out useful work investigating a suitable diet within the purchasing power of the masses.

15.

      The considerable increase in the cost of living, and especially in the rice staple and firewood for cooking it, and the difficulty in securing supplies, combined with high rentals and low earnings, resulted in evidence of serious malnutrition.

REORGANIZATION.

16. The Health Division of the Medical Department was reorganized and the health inspectors worked for the first time in the history of the Colony under the direct control of the health officers instead of under lay authorities. But for this a far greater toll of life might have been signalled.

   17. Progress was made in the reorganization of Chinese hospitals, although these still remain very overcrowded and it is not uncommon to find twice, thrice or even more times the number of in-patients as there are beds.

New

ITEMS.

(a) Health Centre.

   18. A new health centre was opened on the Kowloon Peninsula with added facilities for advice and treatment for mothers and babies and patients with tuberculosis and venereal disease.

(b) Mental Hospital Extension.

   19. With the renovation of some old buildings, it was possible to open a hospital of one hundred beds in one of the most congested areas of Victoria. Making use of other groups of old buildings, the Mental Hospital was, also, added to by 107 beds for women patients. This was an important step, since the Japanese authorities prevented any Chinese nationals suffering from mental disease from being transferred to Canton (Chinese territory). The Mental Hospital is no longer grossly overcrowded.

(c) Renovation of Leper Settlement.

   20. A rather old and very dilapidated building with accommodation for 144 lepers was, also, completely renovated and now serves as a much more satisfactory settlement. It suffers from being constantly overcrowded since the Japanese authorities are unwilling to allow repatriation to leper settlements in Chinese territory.

CIVILIAN MEDICAL (DEFENCE) SCHEME.

   21. Considerable time was spent in bringing up to concert pitch the auxiliary medical services such as first aid posts, casualty clearing hospitals, relief hospitals, etc., for which doctors, sisters, nurses, dressers, dispensers, were trained so as to be available in the event of hostilities breaking out locally.

   22. One of the major difficulties encountered concerned the recruiting of auxiliaries to meet possible emergencies, and this was accentuated in relation to nurses (of whom there was a very real shortage) due, inter alia, to the compulsory evacuation. To meet this and the need to keep sisters in Great Britain, members of the British, Chinese, Eurasian, and Indian communities were trained in first aid and home nursing both by lectures and with practical training in hospital.

23. The personnel of St. John Ambulance Association and Brigade numbering about 1,500, who will man the first aid posts in an emergency, also received intensive training.

24. Voluntary effort was utilized to the fullest extent. A new organization was inaugurated during the year called the Hong Kong Anti-Tuberculosis Association and, within a short time, "justified its existence. It was responsible for starting anti-tuberculosis clinics, for educational propaganda (by poster, film, pamphlet, radio broadcast, etc.).

25. Other voluntary effort took the form of educational, medical and welfare work for the refugees in the camps under the control of the Medical Department.

NEW LEGISLATION.

    26. Legislation of public health importance enacted in 1940 included a new and up-to-date ordinance for the registration of dentists.

    27. The Immigration Ordinance passed in 1940 to become effective in 1941 is expected to have a profound effect on public health and the ultimate reduction of gross overcrowding and deficiency in the social services of the Colony.

    28. Anti-spitting legislation was, also, introduced and will be enforced by degrees.

    29. To summarize, 1940 was a difficult year for the Medical Services the members of which were called upon to bear a much heavier burden than previously owing to the toll of suffering resulting from hostilities and without increase of staff. All members rose well to the occasion.

STAFF AND ORGANIZATION.

HYGIENE AND SANITATION.

    30. The appointment of a senior health officer and the transfer of health inspectorate to the Medical Department were important steps in the development and reorganization of the Health Division.

MALARIA CONTROL.

    31. Existing control measures were maintained with progress in both permanent and temporary anti-malarial works. Valuable cooperation and financial assistance were given by the Military Authorities. Despite heavy rainfall and extensive excavations with resultant increased anopheline breeding places, control proved effective.

EPIDEMIC DISEASES.

32. (a) Cholera. The outbreak at the end of August became serious in September. Insanitary areas in the vicinity of Kowloon and Kowloon City were chiefly affected. Total cases 945 with 626 deaths. Provision of piped water supplies, public latrines and improved scavenging with routine anti-cholera measures led to rapid improvement, but - sporadic cases occurred until the end of the year.

(b) Smallpox. 335 cases (eighteen imported) with 270 deaths occurred. Fifty-six per centum of the cases were children under five years. Intensive anti-smallpox campaign resulted in 2,399,401 vaccinations. Measures for more stringent enforcement of the compulsory vaccination of infants were instituted.

OTHER DISEASES.

33. (a) Leprosy. Much needed improvements to the Leper Settlement were carried out. Lepers resident at the end of the year numbered 226 compared to 175 in 1939.

1940-1941

(b) Tuberculosis. 9,443 cases with 5,751 deaths were notified. The Hong Kong Anti-Tuberculosis Association, formed on the 29th of February, 1940, worked in close cooperation with the Health Authorities. In addition to increasing work amongst the afflicted, this Association has done much to arouse public interest in one of the Colony's greatest problems.

(c) Venereal diseases. The staff of the Social Hygiene branch was augmented by one Chinese lady medical officer, four health nurses and three health visitors. A considerable number of home visits were made, chiefly among prostitutes. A new centre for females was opened in Kowloon, allowing separation of male and female clinics.

GENERAL MEASURES OF SANITATION.

34. (a) Sewage disposal. Government accepted a recommendation by the Urban Council for the departmental collection of nightsoil from "dry" latrines in the urban areas and provision for this service has been made in the 1941-42 Estimates. The possibility of "maturing" nightsoil for safe use as fertilizer in the New Territories, with a view to stimulating agricultural output, was investigated. A start will be made on experimental lines in 1941.

(b) Refuse disposal. Several improvements in collection and disposal were carried out. Further measures in this connexion and in street cleansing methods will come into operation in 1941. Successful experiments in the treatment of refuse by the Indore system were carried out but adoption of the method on a large scale is as yet undecided.

(c) Drainage. Proposals for the drainage of villages around Kowloon are

under consideration.

(d) The quality of pipe-borne water supplies was consistently good

throughout the year.

SCHOOL HYGIENE.

35. Regular inspection of private school premises was instituted. Recommen- dations for adjusting 784 schools to new health regulations were made. A dental clinic for school children was inaugurated following the appointment of a Government dental surgeon. Investigations into the physical condition of children attending "good" and "poor" schools were made and this work will be followed by observing the effect of a daily issue of soya bean milk on the poor children.

LABOUR CONDITIONS.

36.

       Realization that the care of labour is of economic as well as social importance has led to an increased interest in the housing and general welfare of their employees by the larger and more reputable concerns operating in the Colony. But, generally speaking, labour conditions are unsatisfactory. Labour regulations have not been introduced but the new immigration control measures may result in a stiffening of the labour market to the advantage of the labourer.

PORT HEALTH WORK.

   37. Ships examined in emigration numbered about the same as in 1939. 81,206 emigrants were medically examined (S0,611 in 1939). Sixty-six ships were detained in quarantine as against eighteen the previous year. The number of aircraft companies using Hong Kong was reduced from five to three.

MATERNITY AND CHILD WELFARE.

Five lady medical Attendances totalled

    38. The Kowloon Centre was moved to a more suitable building. The Western Centre has made good progress and is doing excellent work. officers and thirteen nurses are now engaged in this service. 206,882 (161,157 in 1939). Free issue of milk and meals to impoverished mothers and children was continued.

NEW TERRITORIES.

    39. Steady progress was made in public health work and much cleaning up was done.. Anything adversely affecting health conditions in the New Territories is sure to have repercussions in the urban areas and an attempt is being made to bring health legislation in the former, as far as practicable, into line with that in the latter,

TRAINING OF LOCAL MEDICAL AND HEALTH STAFF.

40. (a) With his appointment as lecturer in public health, the deputy director of health services assumed full responsibility for the teaching of hygiene at the Hong Kong University. Recommendations to the University Authorities for the institution of a post-graduate course for a diploma in Public Health, or, failing that, a diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, were sympathetically received. While shortage of staff and laboratory accommodation is likely to postpone the former, it is hoped that a start can be made with the latter in September, 1941. These courses would give local medical graduates an opportunity of qualifying for admission to the health services of the Colony.

(b) Teachers in training are given a course of lectures on hygiene by

the health officer in charge of the School Medical Service.

(c) At an examination held in December, fourteen out of twenty-three local candidates for the Sanitary Inspector's Certificate of the Royal Sanitary Institute satisfied the examiners. A revised and more systematized course of training for this examination will come into operation in 1941.

(d) Reference has been made to health visitors, but these at present are nurses who have had no special training in health work. To give the necessary training and to supervise the work of these important members of the staff, Government has approved of the appointment in 1941 of a qualified health visitor as superintendent and training officer for health visitors.

draft a new syllabus for Chinese studies.

  A text-book committee was appointed and prepared lists of sporoved books.

  The now building for the Northcote Training College for teachers was completed in February 1941.

Most of the children and many of the mistresses in the British schools were evacuated from the Colony in July 1940, ne a result, except for a small class maintained by Government at Kowloon Junior School and a class under private arrangements at the Peak School, the Government British schools were closed.

New codes for the Grant schools and the subsidized vormi-- cular schools were completed and forwarded to the Secretary of 3 ta te. Legislation, Administration and Control

The composition of the Board of Education was widened to include the Professor of Education, longKong University, the Mealth Officer of Schools, the Principal, Northcote Training: College, one representative from the HongKong Teachers Assonin. tion and one from the Grant School's Council. Sub-committox were appointed to deal with estimates and finance, sites uni playgrounds, and vernacular education.

Seven grant-aided English boy's schools had 2554 on the rolls of their primary depart- ments (i.c. class 5 and below), and eight grant-aided girls' schools had 288 boys in their lowest classes; all these schools are in urban districts. Handwork, art and singing were extended in all schools and syllabuses in all subjects were revised. Work in school gardens was commenced or extend- cd even in the urban schools and though war restrictions. would not permit visits to many places of interest, many class nature study' journeys were successfully arranged. There were 31 private English primary day schools with 1,351 boys on their rolls at the end of the year and 69 private English night schools with a total enrolment of 2805. (II) Vernacular Schools

(a) Rural. With the addition of classes Lower Primary 3 & 4 at the Government school at Un Long, there is now a 4 year course. The staff was strengthened by the appointment of masters qualified to teach handwork, singing, drawing and gardening. During the year the number of subsidized schools increased by 2 to 115 with an cnrolment of 6,353, and the number of non-subsidized schools decreased to 40 with on enrolment of 1,993. There were no special changes in the curricula of these schools. The amount of subsidies paid to schools in the rural area, i. c. the New Territories, was $24,380.

   (b) Urban. As before there was only one grant aided vernacular school with a primary department but the number of subsidized primary schools increased to 91 having a maxima attendance of 10,141 boys. $63,760 was paid to these schoole in subsidies. The number of scholarships from subsidized to Government English schools was increased from 30 to 35.

Of the non-subsidized 411 wore day schools and 26 night schools; those 437 schools had an enrolment of 39,073, Stops were taken to enforce the new health regulations and; ng a temporary measure, a number of two division schools were per- mitted where existing accommodation was inadequate and no additional accommodation was available. In all cases a mini-- nun mumber of hours schooling for pupils and a maximum for staffs were prescribed.

Boys

(a) For Europeans

As a result of the evacuation both the schools solely for Europeans, the Government Central British School and the private school at Cheung Chau, closed during the year. A small number of European children remaining in the Colony were able to continue their education at one or other of the grant schools.

(b) For Asiatics

The two Government and 7 grant-aided schools continued as before, the numbers on the rolls of their second- ary departments being 793 and 1762 respectively. No important changes were made in the curricula of the secondary classes of these schools.

The reorganisation of Government schools, whereby the break between secondary and primary classes was changed from the end of Class 4 to the end of Class 5, was completed during the year,

     St. Stephen's College, an exempted school, had run cnrolment of 172,this. including its primary and secondary dentis ments.

Of the 651 boys from the above schools who entered ROS the local school certificate oxamination, 330 or 50.7% woro successful. 50% of the 257 entries for the Hong Kong Universi mtriculation examination were also successful. II, Vernacular Schools

  (a) Rural. Three non-subsidised secondary schools: transferred from Canton, continued to function. They had a total enrolment of 669.

(b) Urban. One Government and one grant-aided school with secondary departments continued as before; their curo... ments were 249 and 525 (including 135 girls) respectively. The normal class of the Government school has been discon-- tinued and the school is now a combined primary and secorery school terminating at Higher Middle 2. A few students from the top class take the local (English) school certificate examination but the possible introduction of a special school- loaving dxamination in ho vernacular is under consideration; it would be open to all vernacular schools with secondary departments. Only two secondary schools received subsidies during the period under review and although they are tormod socondary schools their primary departments are in fact very much larger than their secondary which had a combined enrol- ment of only 86. Two of the 75 non-subsidized 'middle' (or secondary) schools were night schools; the total enrolment was 5,592.

III. Vocational

The Evoning Institute continued as before with a maximum cnrolment of 844 (698 malcs). Classes were hold in English, book-keeping, shorthand, pharmacy, pedagogy (vernacular & the final English class), hygiene, physical instruction, field surveying, building, engineering, ship- building, electro-technics as well as classes for teachers in handwork & art, kindergarten work, biology and domestic science.

At the Trade School there was a maximun enrolment 02 153 during the year. In addition special classes for army personnel word organised at the request of the local military authorities. The first diploma cxamination in building was hold at the beginning of the year; of the 23 candidates who presented themselves 11 passed, 6 with distinction. 4 dis- tinction & 9 ordinary automobile engincering diplomas were awarded during the year. 8 of 14 candidates from the school qualified to enter Chinese Government Service as assistant mechanical engineers at a selective examination held through- out China at which there were no other successful candidates. 6 students obtained full 2nd class wireless operators certifi cates and 6 obtained 2nd class (Restricted) certificates for the Far East.

The Junior Technical School continued as in provious years; the maximum cnrolment for the year was 139.

The number of urban private vernacular vocational schools increased to 13 and the number of male students in attendance to 698; the work done was similar to that in 1939.

There were 5 urban private English vocational schools, being commercial and the other a school specialising in notor engineering and wireless telegraphy 378 male students wore in attendance at the 5 schools at the end of the year.

     In the New Territories, there was one boys'and one mixed vocational school. The bias of these schools is agri- culturale

     48 students enrolled at the Teachers Training Colleg. in 1939 continued their course. There were no less than 400 applications for the 48 places (24 English & 24 vernacula in the new course starting in September, 1940. The work continued on the lines set out in last year's report and the progress made by the students was vory encouraging.

With the consent of His Excellency the Governor, thu Teachers Training College on transfer to its now building, completed in February 1941, is to be named the Northcote Training College. The new building provides adequate accoin- modation for all phases of modern training.

     6 students with Government scholarships graduated as trained teachers from Hong Kong University during the yoar, and eight new scholarships were awarded, seven of these covering the usual 4 year academic course, and one a post graduate scholarship for the now course in Education.

     The teacher-training work at Saiyingpun Vernacular School for Boys ended in July when the last 10 normal class students completed their course. The normal work of this school is now being done at the Teachers Training College.

     At Taipo Normal School 5 students passed their final cxamination and were awarded certificates. This school at prosent has an enrolment of 45 and is designed to train teachers for rural schools, but its work is handicapped by the inadequacy of its present premises,

The teachers' courses at the Evening Institute werd continued for the further training of vornacular teachers already in service in schools, admission being restricted to teachers with at least two years sorvico. There were 76 mazo and 93 female students in attendance. The course lasts for three years.

(a) Schools for Europeans

      These schools are mixed and have been dealt with. under section 4 above.

(b) Schools for Asiatics

The schools for non-European children continued unaffected by the evacuation. 452 girls attended the primary classes of the Government Belilios Public School and 157 th secondary. In the 7 grant aided English schools for girls the corresponding figures were 2387 and 815. One of these grant schools, the Diocesan Girls School added a new wing housing a science laboratory, an art room and 7 classrooms.

       Besides these Governint and aided schools there were the following private (unaided) schools for girls with a total enrolment of 703: 2 secondary schools with primary classes, 4 primary schools, 5 (mixed) vocational schools and 6 night schools of primary standard. II. Vernacular Education

In the rural area there were 8 subsidized primary schools, 9 non-subsidized primary schools (including 1 night school) and 1 non-subsidised secondary school. In addition there was 1 mixed non-subsidized vocational school. The combinet enrolment of the schools was 2,387.

-

     30,260 girls attended private schools in the urbaı. area. Of these 1137 wore attending one of the 3 grant schools, 6,931 were divided amongst the subsidized schools 56 primary and 5 secondary and the remainder were on the rolls of one or other of the 253 non-subsidized day schools or 28 non- subsidized primary might schools. The one Government vernacul school for girls was in process of conversion from a normal to a secondary school, and by July, 1941. the last normal class will have completed its course. The school had an enrolment of 151 and in July, 1940 issued certificates to 17 pupils who had successfully completed their training.

    At the end of 1940 19 woinen (8 vernacular) were in the second i. e. the final year at the Teachers Training College, and 29 (15 vernacular) in the first year; 29 were attending the Eastern District Vernacular School for Girls' normal classes referred to above, and 93 the vernacular teachers classes at the Evening Institute.

    6 women were under training at Hong Kong Univorsil with Government scholarships.

IV. Higher Education and Vocational

Four-year scholarships tenable at Hong Kong Univeralt, were awarded to 2 students from girls schools. No post- graduate scholarships were awarded.

146 women attended the Evening Institute classes ro

ferred to in section 5 III abovo.

8. Physical and Moral Welfare and Miscellaneous Notes

The school hygiene branch was expanded during the year and now consists of a health officer for schools, 3 assistant health officers for schools, one lady medical officer for schools, one health inspector for schools and 5 school

nurses.

One school was prosecuted for its repeated failure to comply with the health regulations and was fined.

The year saw further improvement in the physical education work in the aided schools. There was a marked change in the attitude to the work and the old formal gymnastics is giving place to a much freer type of exercise. In summer, swimming was the most general form of physical training and during the season an average of 300 children attended the swimming places daily. During the summer vacation there were well attended courses for both men and women teachers and this resulted in raising the standard of the work in schools. All teachers-in-training are now expected to become proficient in physical education and education students at Hong Kong University and all students at the Teachers Training College attend physical education classes for both training and teaching practice. Lack of accessible playing fields in the Colony is still one of the chief disabilities under which the work labours, but steps are taken to allot those available to as many schools as possible.

The Teachers Training College moved into its now building in March; it has gymnasium, art, handwork and science rooms and rooms for lectures and teaching practice; it is handsome in design and well planned to meet the modern requiro- ments of such an institution. As has already been noted a new wing was added to the Diocesan Girls'School and minor alterations were made to the premises of two other girls schools.

Cooperation continued with other Government depart- ments and missions as in previous years, and the Teachers Asso- ciation gave its ungrudging assistance to the Department whenever called upon. A grant schools council was formed by the heads of these schools and it is hoped that its formation will facilitate the cooperation between those schools and the Department.

During the year the Hong Kong Schools Musical Asso- ciation was formed and a number of concerts were arranged. The chief object of the association is to provide good concerts for students at prices they can afford to pay and at times convenient to them, The association hopes to be able to organise joint school orchestras und, with singing an integral part of school curricula, a schools 'musical festival.

    The interest of scholars and teachers in girl guides, boy scouts and the St. John Ambulance Association and Brigade continued. Attached to schools, 8 girl guide companies and 3 brownies had total enrolments of 157 and 43 respectively; and

52 members of St. John Ambulance Association and Brigade were connected with schools, four of them as teachers.

A considerable amount of visual education work of

two kinds has been done by the Department; the first consistei of film lessons and illustrations for lessons in schools, and the second of film exhibitions to adults, particularly members of H.M. forces. Some indication of the amount of work being done is shown by the figures for the period October, 1940 March, 1941 :-

Number seeing films.

...

Students 25,403

Others 3,172

The number of reels used has been 100-150 per month and a library is being built up thanks to a generous gift of films by the Teachers Association and to the assistance of the British Council and the Far Eastern Department of the Ministry of Information. Although the library contained only 64 soun and silent films at the end of the year it is expected that this number will be trebled during the ensuing twelve months. Two projectors are at present use, and regular displays are given at Government and Grant schools.

A revised scholarship scheme, providing an increased number of scholarships, was approved and came into force from September 1940.

Future Prospects, Policy & Aims

The most urgent development required is the exten- sion of Government provision for Chinese primary education, especially for the children of the poorer classes; this should lake two forms, the provision of new Government schools and more generous subsidies to private schools. For the former a ten

year plan has been drawn up and approved by the Board of Education, providing ultimately for 50 schools (20 urban to accommodate about 7,200 children, and 30 small rural schools to accommodate from 2,500 to 3,000). For the latter a new subsidy code has been prepared and approved by the Board of · Education and the Hong Kong Government. The plan for Gover--- inent rural schools includes a new teachers' training college .. for rural school teachers.

Another development of almost equal urgency is the provision of playgrounds for schools in the urban districts. A list of areas in which such playgrounds are required has been prepared and submitted to the Town Planner,

When the new grant code receives final approval, there will be reasonable provision under existing conditions for English education, and further expansion should await the prior development of Chinese schools as outlined above.

Another question which needs consideration is the strengthening of the inspectorate, and the possibility of reorganising the headquarters staff so as to separate inspec- tion work from administrative routine.

The first batch of trained teachers from the Northcote Training College will graduate shortly; all those from the English course will be absorbed into grant schools straightaway; the absorption of those from the Chinese course into subsidized schools depends almost entirely on increasing the subsidies so as to cover the approved rates of salary.

      The Evening Institute is running classes to provide teachers serving in local schools with training in such subjects as handwork, art, physical education, biology, infant tetching methods and domestic science. Similar classes both for English school and Chinese school ansters and mistresses will be continued and extended in future.

       In the English schools, the curriculum is being broadened by the development of handwork, art and singing. The teaching or elementary science is being extended to lower classes. Progress is being made in training the younger teachers so that they can take physical training as part of their ordinary school duties.

      The curriculum in Chinese schools, and for Chinese studies in the English schools, is under review by a depart- mental committee, whose report is expected shortly. The relation between the English studies and the Chinese studies where both are attempted in the same school will need to be reconsidered in the light of this report.

REPORT OF THE BOTANICAL & FORESTRY

DEPARTMENT FOR THE YEAR 1940/41

INTRODUCTION

65

   In accordance with instructions this Annual Report is presented in an abridged form. Information regarding the general policy and work of the department is obtainable from the Report for 1939. It is sufficient to state that the repercussions of the present war have interfered with normal operations and have necessitated the adoption of emergency measures. These have been connected, so far as this department is concerned, with firewood and have had repercussions both with regard to increased protection of forest areas and the exploitation of planted areas, neither of which would have arisen in normal times.

2. One change has to be recorded. This report covers a period of 15 months i.e. the whole of the year 1940 and the first three months of the year 1941. This change is due to Government's financial year being altered from the normal calendar year to the period April to March inclusive. Annual Reports in future will cover this latter period.

GENERAL REVIEW OF THE YEAR.

3. Forestry-The biggest problem was the question of protection of the wooded areas. Firewood prices remained very high and the situation became very serious towards the latter part of 1940. As à result Government took action and arrangements were made to import supplies from British North Borneo and Malaya. This had a slight effect on the prices in the early months of 1941 but cost of freight is now at too high a figure to allow for any further marked decrease in retail prices.

4. This situation had a disastrous reaction on the local wooded areas and increased protection became an urgent necessity if control was to be maintained. Measures were taken accordingly and despite heavy depredations, it is considered that these were kept down to the lowest possible minimum under existing conditions. Figures for arrests given later are illuminating and give some idea of the extent of the problem.

5. The urgency of the situation combined with possible involvement in hostilities forced Government to turn to local areas as a means for obtaining additional supplies of fuel. As a result the department carried out an extraction programme in the Fanling area which was still in progress at the end of the year

(March).

   6. For the remainder, the normal routine work was carried out and as much afforestation as possible put in hand. Forest lot holders have cut very heavily and the enforcement of a new system of holdings of this nature would appear to present less difficulty in the future as the importance of the question of compensation is correspondingly reduced. It is intended that the whole system of afforestation of this nature shall be reorganized as soon as conditions will allow for action in this direction.

The

7. Agriculture--As a result of the surveys made during the previous year, various discussions were held with departmental representatives covering such matters as areas available for development, supplies of cheap fertilizer, etc. necessity for the establishment of agriculture on a sounder basis was recognized by Government and the department was instructed to prepare estimates for the inclusion of an agricultural section under the departmental estimates for the year 1941/42. Prior to this it had been the intention of Government to put forward the claims of agriculture under the Colonial Development & Welfare scheme, to which end a paper entitled "Agriculture in the Colony of Hong Kong" had been prepared by the Superintendent and submitted to Government in support of the proposal. The direct action subsequently approved rendered unnecessary further action in this direction.

S. The question of the utilization of town wastes, particularly nightsoil (the chief form of fertilizer in the New Territories), received considerable attention and it is hoped that these may play a large part in future agricultural development.

9. The question of the disposal of the large number of refugees in the Colony produced proposals for utilizing their services agriculturally, in thinly populated areas, such as Lantao Island and in the development of sloping land generally, for the production of vegetables etc. for the local market. Considerable semi-official investigations were made and the Superintendent was called upon for information and advice on various points connected with the agricultural side of the matter. In his capacity of Agricultural Adviser, the Superintendent advised Government on the salient points involved in the matter and laid special emphasis on the need for very careful consideration before large scale expenditure was embarked upon.

          It is the writer's considered view that schemes of this nature, however urgent the situation may appear to be, are unlikely to be successful unless carried out under proper agricultural supervision. As the Colony will not have the requisite facilities available until after the establishment of the Agricultural Section, any scheme embarked upon at this stage should be considered as a short term measure only to meet emergency requirements. The agricultural development of the Colony generally must be a long term matter and be in the hands of people qualified to carry it through.'

10. Horticulture-This proceeded on general lines. It is worthy of record that the use of fertilizers and composts over a period of two years in lieu of animal manure (due to health precautions) in departmental operations of this type had no visible effect on the quality of the flowers and vegetables produced, in fact, the latter appeared to improve in quality. However, arrangements have now been completed for the resumption of the use of "safe" (i.e. matured) animal manure and it is considered that a combination of these various types of manuring will be the best thing in the long run.

11. Weather-The rainfall was above normal being 122.34 inches in 147 days. Distribution was as follows:-January to March 14.59 ins; April to June 52.56 ins; July to September 49.82 ins; October to December 5.37 ins. Typhoon signals were hoisted on four occasions but moderate gales only were experienced.

FORESTRY

12. Area of Forest Land-Government afforested areas in the Colony amount to a total of approx. 22.9 sq. miles. The area under the "forest lot" system remained at approx. 81 sq. miles.

13. Forest Reservation-Little progress was made in this matter owing to the generally disturbed conditions. The Shing Mun area was provisionally demarcated as a forest reserve, planting being carried up to the 1,000 ft. contour. When conditions are more favourable the area will be properly surveyed and legally constituted. Similar action will be taken to increase the area of the Taipo

Kau forest reserve.

14. Forest Communications-These consist of forestry paths, the total length being approx. 54 miles.

15. Summary of Forestry Offences-Convictions for forestry offences were as follows:-1940-departmental 2,387, police 2,442, Total 4,829; 1941 (3 months)-departmental 645, police 741, Total 1,386; Grand total for 15 months- 6,215. Figures for 1939 were 2,700 therefore the 1940 convictions represent an increase of 79% on the previous year. Much time and labour has had to be devoted to this matter and there is little likelihood of any improvement under present conditions.

1940-1941

16. Progress in Afforestation-A total of 215 acres was afforested during the year as follows:-Hongkong 594 acres; Kowloon 74 acres; New Territories (Shing Mun) 82 acres. This covered broadcasting with Pine seed (Pinus Massoniana Lamb.) and planting of broad leaved trees. The cost of the operations involved were (i) broadcasting (with preliminary preparation i.c. burning over etc.)-$7.75 per acre (inclusive) (ii) planting-$11 per acre (exclusive of nursery costs).

17. Outturn of Timber-The outturn of timber for supply to Stores Depart- ment for re-issue to Government departments as fuel was 751.9 tons of timber and 5.9 tons of brushwood. Its value was estimated at $26,311 at current prices. Costs of extraction were $3.08 per ton or about 183 cents per picul. Extraction for emergency purposes was begun on 14.2.41 in the Fanling area. By the end of March 1738 tons of pinewood and 541 tons of brushwood had been extracted and passed to Stores Department. After allowing for shrinkage the value of the timber was estimated at $62,469 at current prices. Cost of extraction to railhead (Fanling station) was $4.80 per ton or about 25 cents per picul. (H.K. $1=1s 3d; 1 picul=133 lbs).

  18. Imports and Exports of Timber-Standard Form X covers the year 1940 only. The chief differences from the previous year are additional net imports as follows:-Timber-2,354 hundreds of cubic fect valued at $1,180,083 and Firewood- 585,660 piculs valued at $1,870,064. Imports of firewood from Chinese territory have practically ceased and 86.4% of the total imports were from British North Borneo and Malaya. The thanks of the department are due to the Imports and Exports Department for the statistical data.

19.

Revenue and Expenditure-Revenue for the period 1940/41 (15 mouths) was $100,072.15 (this includes the estimated value of timber extracted and passed to Stores Department). Expenditure for the same period was $133,744.13 (this includes additional expenditure amounting to $18,275.74 for increased protection services).

  20. Strength of Staff-The permanent staff of the forestry section remained unchanged. The average number of temporary employees was 135 per diem: of these, an average of 105 was employed on protection work and 30 on routine work.

21. Taipo Kau Forest Reserve-The chief items dealt with were (i) erection of plant house and pottingshed and preparation of nursery inmediately adjacent (ii) draining and levelling further old padi fields in the valleys (ii) continuation of pine experiments (iv) planting of 5,156 Tung (Aleurites montana Wils) being the commencement of a new plantation of this species and (r) addition of 176 Bambusa textilis McClure, (B. dolichomerithalla Hayata) to the previous plantings.

  22. Protection of Plantations-Clearing of fire barriers and forestry paths was carried out as usual. The former totalled 55.7 miles and the latter 49 miles. Eleven outstations were erected (8 in Hongkong and 3 in Kowloon) at various points in the forest areas in connexion with forest protection measures.

  23. Entomological Notes-There were very severe attacks of pine tree caterpillars in several districts. Two species, Dendrolimus punctatus and an undetermined species were involved. Numerous larvæ were found to be parasitized by two or three distinct species of wasps and collections of caterpillars, moths and wasps were made and are awaiting more settled times for identification.

24. Shing Mun Area-Further planting to the extent of 82 acres was carried out in this area. Of this, 50 acres were burnt over and broadcast with pine sced and the remainder planted with various broad leaved species, in blocks, 13,950 plants being used. Pine seed broadcasting has proved very successful to date and the majority of the broad leaved species are doing well. Casuarina equisetifolia (1060) does not appear to be thriving.

   25. Other Activities-Roadside Tree planting totalled 3,958 plants; 1,077 on Hongkong Island and 2,881 in the New Territories. Brushwood and Undergrowth clearing totalled 177 acres at a cost of $3,976= $22.40 per acre. Scenic Develop- ment-1,231 flowering shrubs were planted out in various places. Miscellaneous Tree Planting-3,316 trees were planted and 150 lbs pine seed broadcast in connexion with military requests. These were almost all in connexion with defence works. A total of 510 trees were planted at the Country Club, Fanling in continuation of the planting begun in 1939.

HERBARIUM AND LIBRARY

   26. As a precautionary measure, the herbarium (approx. 40,000 specimens) was evacuated to Malaya on 25.7.40. Arrangements were made with the Director of Gardens, S.S. for accommodation at the Waterfall Garden, Penang. A small set of Hongkong duplicates was retained for departmental use.

27. Additions to the library were-11 books, 439 periodicals, 43 annual reports and 306 leaflets.

GARDENS, PARKS AND GROUNDS

    28. The Botanic Gardens and Government House garden were kept in good condition and various additions of a planting nature were made. Of the numerous other areas maintained by the department, Kowloon Hospital grounds received considerable attention. Some 525 plants, chiefly flowering trees and shrubs, being planted out in order to make the grounds more colourful. Considerable planting and turfing was carried out at various minor hospitals and refugee camps.

on.

AGRICULTURE

29. Sheung Shui Experimental Garden-The general routine work was carried Experimental-Special attention was paid to the experimental work connected with potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice and tung oil. The sweet potato varieties imported from Malaya are all superior in quality to the local variety but it will be necessary to obtain better returns from them, both of tubers and haulms, before they are likely to appeal to the local grower. Tung Oil-Budding of "tung oil" was carried out in the nursery beds and topgrafting on selected trees, with good success. Bud wood from high yielding trees was used in the operation and it is hoped in this way to build up a plantation which will demonstrate the possibilities of this crop in the Colony.

    Fruit-The set of Californian fruit trees planted at the Taipo Kau forest reserve showed good growth and a grape fruit and an orange (both excellent types) produced fruits. There is a large field for development in this direction for local market supplies.

30. Inspection of Plants & Plant Products for Export-There was a consider- able increase in the export of vegetables (fresh and dry) and Cassia bark. Total inspections were 299 covering-Vegetables-233, Sugar Canc-23 (315,720 canes.) Narcissus Tazelta L.-16 (29,580 bulbs). Cassia bark-23 (3,795 bales). Living plants-1. Vegetables went chiefly to the Philippine Islands, Sugar Cane to Singapore, Narcissus Tazetta L. to Honolulu and Cassia bark to London, Alexandria. and South America.

31. Goats-The number of goats under permit in 1940 was as follows:- Hongkong 57, Kowloon 127, New Territories 242. Total 426. In addition a stock up to 500 head was maintained on Lamma Island for market purposes.

32. Seed Collection and Exchange-Exchange of seeds with various countries was carried on as usual.

REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE

33. Expenditure on all branches of the department for the fifteen months period was $209,367.46 and Revenue $104,421.17. The latter is made up of (i) actual $15,641.17 and (i) estimated $88,780 (being value of firewood passed to Stores Department).

STAFF.

34. There were no changes in the senior staff during the year. 'The abnormal conditions made heavy demands on the staff generally and this, coupled with duties involving volunteers, essential services etc., in which practically all the more senior officers are concerned, made up a very strenuous year and I should like to take this opportunity of thanking all officers for their loyal service and co-operation. The Superintendent was gazetted Agricultural Adviser as from 24.9.40.

   35. The death in England of Mr. H. Green (late Superintendent) on 14.1.41 following an operation is recorded with regret. Mr. Green retired on 28.4.38 after 27 years service in the Colony. Au appreciation of Mr. Green's services appeared in the Annual Report for 1937.

Hong Kong Annual Administration Reports, 1841-1941

Appendix L.

PRISONS DEPARTMENT, HONG KONG.

Annual Report for the year 1940 and the first quarter, 1941.

    The war in Europe has dominated the outlook of the staff and the war in China that of the prisoners to a large number of whom release from prison has meant a return to land in occupation by the enemy and to devastated homes with families probably dead or scattered. With these conditions prevailing it is hardly surprising that Hong Kong has been regarded as a haven of refuge by the hungry and the homeless and by the army ci scallywags always to be found on the fringe of war.

    2. The year has been one long struggle against the evil effects of over- crowding due to abnormal conditions which have, of course, aggravated the miserable poverty of the majority of the Chinese from whom the prison population

comes.

3. In consequence, progressive prison administration has been sadly hampered and the only grounds for satisfaction are that things have not been allowed to slip back to what they were in the bad old days.

4. In addition to their normal duties, which have been heavier than ever before, both the European and Indian staff have worked hard to fit themselves to take part in the defence of the Colony, should the need arise, as units of the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Corps. The wardress staff of Lai Chi Kok Prison have co-operated wholeheartedly in work for the British War Organization.

    5. Prison industries have assisted in defence measures by the manufacture of articles required by the military authorities and by supplying convict labour for digging trenchies, levelling camp sites and on anti-malarial work.

    6. Apart from extensive civil defence measures the only major work has been the trenching and manuring of a large piece of land on the west side of the prison in preparation for the growing of alfalfa and Chinese spinach as an experiment to be carried out in conjunction with the Medical and Botanical and Forestry Departments.

    7. In June the prison printing industry was closed down, the printing machinery and stock were transferred to the Government Printers in Hong Kong and the printing shop was converted into a temporary workshop for the newly started concrete block making industry.

S. In spite of gross overcrowding discipline has been well maintained and up to the close of 1940 health equally so. Unfortunately, during the period 1st, Janggry-31st. March, 1941, there occurred an outbreak of dysentry (99 cases) followed by an outbreak of cholera (26 cases and 7 deaths), both in Stanley Prison.

    9. In the industrial, spiritual, mental and physical training of prisoners there has been no change and the position with regard to young offenders and after-care remained the saine. On the 1st. April, 1941, however, the Juvenile Remand Home was transferred from the Police to the Prisons Department and became the Causeway Bay Reformatory for convicted boys while boys on remand went to the new Juvenile Section of Victoria Remand Prison.

10. The incarceration of persons awaiting trial, debtors, destitutes and deportees in Victoria _Remand "Prison (11,464 admissions, including "Special Release prisoners, during the period) has proved a success and continues to function satisfactorily. The popularity of the move of the Remand Prison with the poorest section of the general public who formerly were not able to visit their friends and relatives on remand in Stanley Prison owing to the cost of transport is evidenced by the number of visitors to Victoria Remand Prison during the period, viz: 6530.

11.

I wish to thank the whole staff of the Department for their loyal support during a very trying year.

Hong Kong Annual Administration Reports, 1841-1941

NOTES ON THE ESTIMATES-1940/1941.

1.-Change in Financial Year.

   The Financial Year of the Colony will, after the current year, end on 31st March instead of 31st December as hitherto. In order to bring this change into effect the present estimates are based on a period of fifteen months i.e. from 1st January, 1940 to 31st March, 1941. By compari- son with 1939 estimates, therefore, most sub-heads show a 25% increase.

Where increases are solely due to this longer financial period no special explanation has been made.

In the case of certain annual payments, e.g. grants-in-aid, where payment is to be made in respect of a single year only, additional provision has not been necessary.

2.-Rate of Exchange.

The rate of exchange has been taken at 1/3d. to the dollar for sterling salaries paid in the Colony and at 1/24d. to the dollar for all other purposes.

3.-Pension Privileges.

All non-pensionable posts are printed throughout the estimates in ita lics.

4.-Quarters and Rent Allowance Privileges.

(a.)-Sterling-paid officers.

To enable true comparisons to be made between scales of salary to which different terms as to payment of rent for Government quarters, if occupied, are attached, the terms applicable are indicated as follows :-

(i) officers entitled to free quarters are shown by an asterisk, (*).

(ii) officers liable to pay rent on the basis of 6% of their salaries are shown by

a dagger (†).

· (iii) the remainder, who are liable to pay rent on the basis of 12% of their

salaries, bear no indication.

   In all cases officers not occupying Government quarters are eligible for rent allowances at rates varying in accordance with their liability as to rent for quarters.

(b.)- Dollar-paid officers.

   If on the permanent establishment, dollar-paid officers do not normally pay rent for Government quarters which they are required to occupy in connexion with their work; and they are eligible for rent allowances at various rates in accordance with General Orders if not occupying such quarters.

Memorandum by the Financial Secretary on the

223

Financial Position, 1938, 1939 and the Estimates for 1940/1941.

INTRODUCTORY.

  With the approval of the Secretary of State and the consent of the Finance Committee, it has been decided that the Colony's financial year should in future end on the 31st March. In order to bring that change into operation the present Estimates cover a fifteen month period, and the consequent increase of 25% in recurrent charges should be borne in mind in making comparisons with the 1939 provision. As the basis of a more exact comparison, a table has been added (page 17 of the Estimates) showing under each Head the estimated provision for the 15 months ending 31st March, 1941, and the actual expenditure for the 15 months ended 31st March, 1939. A similar table of revenue has been added (page 9 of the Estimates). The Revenue Heads have been re-arranged in more convenient form.

Revenue.

2. The Revenue of 1938, $36,735,855, exceeded the original estimate by $6,480,935, thanks to the increase in the activity of the Colony which prevailed, owing largely to the Sino-Japanese hostilities and the large increase in population due to the same cause.

   3. The expenditure of the year was $37,175,898, being $3,796,349 in excess of the original estimate; but this included exceptional and non-recurrent charges, totalling $2,203,216, for un-allocated stores, loans and military con- tribution, due to changes in the accounting systems. The principal excesses on individual Heads were:-

4. The net result was a deficit of $440,043, reducing the surplus of assets over liabilities to $13,562,235 at the 31st December, 1938.

B. ANTICIPATED RESULTS OF 1939.

Revenue.

5. The revised estimate of revenue is $40,475,248, an excess of $4,377,923 over the original estimate of $36,097,325,* and of $3,739,393 over the actual revenue of 1938. Actual revenue (approximate) up to 31st August was 17.4% more than the proportionate amount of the estimate, based on normal seasonal distribution. The increase is principally due to the continued presence in the Colony of large numbers of persons, the majority of them self-supporting, who have taken refuge here from the disturbances in China; to the diversion to the Colony of manufacturing and other activities formerly carried on in Shanghai and other cities affected by the hostilities; and to the maintenance of the Colony's total trade at a level not much lower than that prevailing in 1938, in spite of the interruption of trade with near South China ports. This increase in population and economic activity directly or indirectly affects most heads of revenue, especially liquor, tobacco and petrol duties, rates, Post Office revenue and receipts from royalties payable by transport companies. Details of the more important items are set out in Table II.

Expenditure.

  6. The repercussions in the Colony of the situation in China have on the other hand caused further increases in expenditure and there have been other additional charges, particularly for defence. The Colony has had to maintain thousands of refugees while the hospitals have had many more patients to care for, the numbers being still further swollen by epidemics of smallpox and cholera. Air Raid Pre- cautions have called for expenditure, as foreshadowed last year, several times the amount provided in the Estimates. Up to the 14th September supplementary votes totalling $5,061,237 had been approved by the Finance Committee, of these $1,515,026 were for Air Raid Precautions, and $673,800 for Charitable Services.

  Further additional expenditure was authorized by the Secretary of State and Legislative Council early in the year, when it became apparent that the financial position would be easier than had been feared when the Estimates for 1939 were approved, to provide for certain public works which had been cut out during the consideration of the Estimates in Council. Supplementary votes on account of these works amounted to $1,478,109.

  The larger population and continued disturbed conditions have resulted in many minor excesses in the votes of other Departments and the total revised estimate of expenditure is $40,409,957, i.e. $2,652,734 in excess of the approved estimate. Table III shows the more important variations in individual Heads.

  N.B. The revised estimates of expenditure were prepared before the outbreak of war with Germany and no account is taken of extra expenses which may be occasioned by that.

7. The net result, if the revised estimates of revenue and expenditure are realized, will be to increase the surplus of assets at 31st December, 1939. to $13,627,526. As explained in paragraph 14 below it is anticipated that the whole of this will then have been advanced against Loan Account.

C. PROSPECTIVE REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE OF 1940/1941.

Revenue.

8. As last year, the revenue for 1940/1941, which is put at $49,861.470, has been estimated generally on the assumption that the economic activity of the Colony will be maintained at not far short of its present level. This may prove to be over-optimistic, especially since the outbreak of war, but the whole outlook is at present so uncertain that no other firm basis for estimating the revenue presents itself. Account has been taken of increased yields due to the higher assessment and of certain other increased receipts, c.g. royalties from the Tramway Co., but no allowance is made for possible increases of taxation on the lines laid down by the Taxation Committee, which it may be necessary to impose if conditions worsen.

9. The variations in the estimates for 1940/1941 of the principal items of revenue compared with the 1939 estimates are shown in Table IV.

11. The major increases over the 1939 Estimates (after allowing for the normal 25% increase in view of the fifteen month period covered by the Ï940/1941 Estimates), and the reasons for them, are-

((i) Head 5, Charitable Services: $224,749, increased grants to the Tung

Wah Hospitals and for relief of refugees.

(ii) Head 6A, H.K.V.D.C.; $107,303, increased members and equip-.

ment;

(iii) Head 6C, Air Raid Precautions; $G$9,046, completion of equipment

programme.

(iv) Head 16, Medical Department; $490,375, increased staff and more

patients.

(v) Head 17, Miscellaneous Services; $320,704. Special items, 1941 Census $100,000, Hong Kong Centenary $140,000, inaintenance of Chinese internees $60,000, partly offset by savings on other items.

(vi) Head 19, Police Force; $318,303, increased staff.

(vii) Head 20B, Post Office (Wireless); $233,608, new transmitters.

(viii) Head 24A, Public Works Recurrent; $111,700, mainly due to trans-

fts from other Heads and new, system of accounting.

(ix) Head 26, Sanitary Department; $117,182, increased staff and main-

tenance expenses owing to larger population.

(x) Head 27B, Labour Office; $92,431, new Head.

'(xi) Head 30, Public Works Extraordinary; $1,368,256. See paragraph 12

and separate memorandum by the Hon. D. P. W.

* The increases quoted are the excesses over the 1939 provision plus 25%.

1940-1941

-

12. The programme of Public Works Extraordinary, which is discussed in detail in a separate memorandum by the Hon. D. P. W., includes provision for the completion or continuation of a number of works now in progress and for the usual items of a more or less recurrent nature. In view of the uncertain outlook it has been decided to suspend completely all work on the new Government House and. no funds for it are to be provided in 1940/1941. Provision is included for the starting of certain other new buildings including the Infectious Diseases Hospital, a new Queen's College, Health Centres and a Girls Reformatory.

As before, all new works .connected with the Water Undertaking are being charged to Loan Account.

13. The total estimated expenditure of $50,188,178, even after allowing for the extra 3 months covered by the Estimates, is higher than any on record, but if the estimates are realized the surplus of assets will remain at 31st March, 1941, substantially above the figure of $10,000,000 which has been regarded as a proper. reserve. It is true to repeat the statement made last year that the increases in expenditure, where they are not either automatic or forced upon the Government by the current exceptional circumstances, are no more than an attempt to meet needs which have long been recognized as urgent. After deducting extraordinary expendi-¿ ture (Special Expenditure and P.W.E.), expenditure amounts to only $44,521,304 and is within the ordinary recurrent revenue.

D.

LOAN WORKS AND PUBLIC DEBT.

   14. Of the total loan of $25,000,000 authorized by Ordinance 11 of 1934, 34% Dollar Bonds to a mominal value of $14,000,000 was issued in 1934 at 99% producing $13,860,000. At the end of 1938 $24.720,017 had been spent, of which $10,860,017 had been met by advances from surplus funds. This method of financing has been continued. By 30th June, 1939, a further $279,983 had been advanced, making $11,140,000 in all. The revised estimated total expenditure at 31st December. 1939, is $25,000,000 of which $11,140,000 will have been advanced from surplus funds. In addition, authority has been given for the charg- ing of additional expenditure to a new loan to be raised, expenditure being met in the meantime by advances from revenue. On this new loan account $1,489,180 had been advanced up to 30th June, 1939, and total advances up to 31st December, 1939, are estimated at $2,809,309. Details of both loan accounts are given in Appendix VI to the Estimates.

15. The precise allocation of the 1934 loan funds between individual items has boen varied by Resolutions of Legislative Council and is now as shown in Appendix VI (b) to the Estimates; savings have been realizod in the net expenditure on the Shing Mun Gorge Dam and other items, and have been made available for other works. It is proposed to close this loan account finally in 1939.

   16. New expenditure proposed to be met from loan is almost entirely Water Works expenditure, but includes provision for preliminary investigations into the extension of the Aerodrome. This may eventually be a very large and costly scheme but plans cannot be prepared until the preliminary investigation is completed. It is the intention to finance all new capital expenditure on water from loan for the present. Authority will be sought for the advance of $1,401,086 for the con- tinuance of works already authorized under loan account; and it is proposed to charge also further works of a total estimated cost of $160,000, of which the whole $160,000 will, it is estimated, be spent in 1940/1941 and will be met for the time being by advances from surplus balances.

17. The total debt at the 31st December, 1938, was $16,598;000, made up of $4,838,000 4% Conversion Loan, 1933, repayable in 1953, against which a sink- ing fund of £66,937 was held; and $11,760,000 34% Dollar Loan, 1934. The latter is the balance of the original sum borrowed, $14,000,000, which is being repaid by annual drawings at the rate of $560,000 per annum. The desirability of raising the balance of the 1934 loan ($11,000,000) is kept continuously under review, but it has been possible so far to meet loan expenditure by advances from surplus 'balances without reducing the Colony's cash resources 'below the necessary minimum figure.

Part II. Detail of 1940-1 Estimates.

N.B. In reading the following notes it should be remembered that as the Estimates were drafted mainly before the outbreak of war they contain no provision for much expenditure which will be necessary if the war continues; on the other hand they do contain provision for expenditure which will probably not be incurred in that eventuality.

HEAD 4. BOTANICAL AND FORESTRY DEPARTMENT.

Personal Emoluments.

1 Assistant Supervisor: new post on dollar salary.

   Forestry work on the mainland is being increased, particularly in the Shing Mun catchment, and general forestry protection is becoming more difficult. The increased work calls for an extra supervisor for which a local man on a dollar salary is proposed.

1 Botanical Assistant: new post on dollar salary.

   It is considered that the Herbarium and Library require the full time of an officer with expert training: at present expert supervision devolves on the Superintendent.

HEAD 5.

CHARITABLE SERVICES.

   SUB-HEAD 9.-The erection of a building for lepers has been postponed in view of present condition.

   SUB-HEAD 10.-Lepers have increased in numbers and are being sent to asylums at Pakhoi and Swatow, where they are accepted on a per capita payment basis.

SUB-HEAD 17. Taipo Rural Home and Orphanage: In view of the greatly increased numbers of child destitutes as a result of new mui tsai legislation and the increase in S.C.A. activities against kidnappers it was arranged by an agreement dated 12th September, 1938, with Bishop Hall to pay Building Grants of $16,000 in 1939 and $28,000 in 1940 or later, the second grant to be conditional on the raising of an equal, sum by public subscription. In consideration of these grants Govern- ment nominees to the number of 50 will be accepted at a fee of $5.00 per month per head.

As the buildings are likely to be completed before 31st March, 1941, it is expected that the full $28,000 will be payable before that date.

SUB-HEAD 18.-The voluntary basis on which the Tung Wah group of Hospitals is financed has proved increasingly ineffective in recent years. New arrangements provide for the annual grant to be fixed on the basis of the Hospitals' approved Budget for 1940-1: this grant is provisionally put at $350,000.

   SUB-HEAD 23. At the present rate of outlay $250,000 will not suffice for more than six months, but in view of the uncertain prospect and the emergency nature of the need it is not considered advisable to budget for a larger figure.

HEAD 6A. DEFENCE, VOLUNTEER DEFENCE CORPS.

The larger force resulting from political disturbances in general and the Compulsory Service Ordinance in particular entails several increases of which the chief are as follows:-

SUB-HEAD 3.-Ammunition increase. from $7,000 to $71,200.

:

Sub-Head 17.-Training expenses: increase from $17,000 to $28,000.

The increase in Ammunition is partly due to Artillery Camps in con- nexion with newly formed battery units being held in the first three months of the

1940-1941

9

231

year so that a two year supply is required for the 15th months. Similar considera- tions apply to camp pay for ten artillery officers, and-training expenses for artillery

camps.

  The provision of two additional modern armoured cars (Sub-head_25 $24,000) is considered necessary for the efficiency of the units concerned'.

HEAD 6C. DEFENCE, AIR RAID PRECAUTIONS.

  The increases in A.R.P. personnel have already been provided for in 1939 by supplementary vote.

Special Expenditure..

  A programine for civilian defence was explained to the Finance Com- mittee at the time of the consideration of Finance Message No. 6 of 1939. The. 1940-41 provision completes that programme.

HEAD 9.

EDUCATION DEPARTMENT,

  The expenditure on the Trade School, both Other Charges and Personal Emoluments, is amalgamated for the first time with other votes.

Teachers Training College.

  The establishment of a Teachers Training College for non-graduate Anglo- Chinese and Vernacular Masters was approved in April last by the Secretary of State and work commenced in September. The College will be staffed by a Principal. three British Masters, three University Trained Non-British Masters and eight servants (Office Attendant, etc.) The three British Masters to be taken on by the College will be replaced by University Trained Non-British Masters..

  SUB-HEADS 29 To 40. cover the equipment for the College and the running expenses other than salaries. There will be saving of $5,000 on lecturing staff at the Trade School as a result of the establishment of the College.

  SUB-HEAD 17-The provision of library facilities for schools is inadequate. Hitherto only two schools have possessed libraries and these have been due to voluntary gifts. It is proposed to provide a small sum annually for each of nineteen schools so that libraries may be gradually formed in each school.

  SUB-HEADS 27 AND 28.-The provision is calculated in accordance with expected demands under the new Vernacular Schools Subsidies Code.

  SUB-HEAD 41.-Under the new Vernacular Subsidy Code the following grants are expected :-Diocesan Girls School $35,000; Munsang College $15,000; Heep Yunn Girls School: $12,000; Hunghom Kaifong School $1,240.

  SUB-HEAD 49.-It is proposed to introduce the use of films for educational purposes, a practice already well established in Great Britain and elsewhere. The machine will be moved from school to school and a library of films will be gradually formed.

  SUB-HEAD 51.-$1,200 is being provided for a multitone Speech Machine for the School for the Deaf, a grant-in-aid school largely dependent on voluntary subscriptions. In addition a grant of $220 for laboratory equipment is being made to the Diocesan Girls School under the new Grant Code:

Personal Emoluments.

  University Trained Masters increase from 70 to 79. Three of these are replace- ments of other posts involving a net saving; the remaining six are additional posts due to the establishment of the Teachers Training College.

HEAD. 10. FIRE BRIGADE.

  The addition of Air Raid Precautions auxiliary fire service and the large increase in the work of the Brigade, particularly in the field of ambulance services, during recent years, has necessitated increases of staff. These are one Assistant Station Officer (£260 rising to £350), one Motor Driver ($500 rising to $650) one Ambulance Dresser ($900 rising. to. $1,140). and two Ambulance Attendants ($252 rising to. $300). Except for the first these are temporary posts.

232

Hong Kong Annual Administration Reports, 1841-1941.

10.-

HEAD 11A. HARBOUR DEPARTMENT.

   SUB-HEAD 22.-A new Police Launch is required to replace one built in 1903 and now incapable of being economically repaired.

SUB-HEAD 26.-The commencement of work on the new lighthouse tender approved in 1939 at a total cost of $400,000 was delayed and only $160,000 is expected to be spent in 1939. $240,000 has therefore to be provided in 1940.

SUB-HEAD 28. Two additional Motor Boats are required for the Police Department. One of these is required on account of the increase in Passport Examinations due to more stringent regulations. The need for the other arises from urban and mining development in the Tsun Wan neighbourhood, particularly during the last three years. At present the Police at Tsun Wan are unable to reach Ma Wan and Tsing I Islands at short notice.

Personal Emoluments.

    Owing to the transfer of the Harbour Department Store at Yaumati to the Stores Department one Class VIB clerk and one coolie have been transferred to that department. At the same time one Class IV post abolished has been replaced by a new post of Store Foreman under the Stores Department. Personal Emoluments, Government Slipway, Yaumati, Boatswain. It is considered that the duties of this post justify an improvement in the salary scale from £370 to £430 as at present to £400 to £520, the same scale as that of Boarding Officers.

HEAD 11B. AIR SERVICES.

Owing to uncertainty as to further reclamation at Kai Tack, it is deemed inadvisable as yet to replace the present wooden pontoon, which has already exceeded its useful life, by a permanent structure. A further wooden structure estimated to last two years is accordingly proposed, to cost $4,500.

   SUB-HEAD 13.-The provision of a projector for determining the height of a cloud base is necessary for the safety of aircraft descending through cloud at night. The estimated cost is $1,600.

Personal Emoluments.

Owing to the increase in air traffic two groundsmen, one guard and one telegraphist have been added to the personnel.

HEAD 12. IMPORTS AND EXPORTS OFFICE.

SUB-HEADS 19 AND 20.-Opium seizures declined considerably in 1939 and at the same time sales of Government opium showed a marked increase. Increased purchases and a reduction in rewards are therefore expected.

Personal Emoluments.

It has been found that the three additional European Revenue Officers recruited on a temporary basis in 1938 will be permanently required; the increased requirements of Imperial Preference being the principal reason. These posts have therefore been made permanent. Owing to the need of greater supervision the number of Senior Revenue Officers has been increased from one to three by promo- tions from the ranks of Revenue Officers, whose number is adjusted accordingly.

HEAD 13. JUDICIARY.

HEAD 15. LEGAL DEPARTMENTS.

The law departments have been regrouped as follows.

1940-1.

   The Magistracies, formerly separate Heads of estimates, have been joined with the Supreme Court to form the Head of Judiciary, following the placing of the

1940-1941

11-

233

Magistrates under the general supervision of the Chief Justice. The remaining departments namely those of the Attorney General, the Crown Solicitor, the Official Receiver and the Land Officer formerly joined with the Supreme Court under the Head of Legal Departments continue under that Head but without the Supreme Court.

HEAD 13 JUDICIARY B. MAGISTRACY, HONG KONG.

Personal Emoluments,

  In accordance with policy now approved two cadet officers in the Hong Kong Magistracy will be replaced by officers of the Colonial Legal Service, who will be qualified barristers.

HEAD 16. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.

Other Charges.

SUB-HEAD 61.-Two new ambulances are considered necessary, one for Kow- loon Hospital and one for the western New Territories mainland.

  SUB-HEAD 73.-The increase in patients at the Kowloon Hospital (25% since 1935) together with the requirements of Air Raid Precautions entail large increases in X-Ray equipment.

SUB-HEAD 74.-Two machines in the Massage Department require replacing. In addition a new machine is required to meet increased demands. These items absorb $3,747. The balance of $1,403 is for equipping a clinic at the Violet Pecl Centre to replace the clinic at the former Government Civil Hospital.

Personal Emoluments.

  Increases of staff for the purpose of the following new or increased activities have been provided in estimates :-

1. The increase in number of Hospital in-patients from 18,885 in 1938 to 22,234 estimated for 1939 is expected to prove permanent. This directly necessitates increases in administrative staff and in "other charges" in Hospital account. Improvements in the quality of Hospital services, a revenue producing form of expenditure, are also justified by the increased scale of activities. The increases of staff primarily referable to these causes are: 1 Dental Surgeon, 1 Dental Mechanic, 1 Chinese Medical Officer, 1 Assistant Chemist, 1 Proba- tioner Masseuse, 1 Junior Clerical Service Class VIB Clerk (for Radiology office), 4 Staff Nurses, 3 Probationer Dispensers, 2 Staff Dressers, 1 Electrician, 11 Ward Boys, 7 Coolies, 9 Amahs, 1 Cook and 1 Messenger.

2. The taking over from the District Officers of the Scavenging Services in the towns of the New Territories results in additions of 41 Scaven- ing Coolies, 1 Chinese Sanitary Inspector and 1 Foreman.

3. The taking over from the Prison Department of the Prison Hospital staff involves provision for 1 Hospital Superviser, 1 Hospital Principal Indian Warder, 1 Assistant Hospital Principal Indian Warder, and 7 Hospital Indian Warders. In addition 1 Assistant Hospital Super- visor and 2 more Hospital Indian Warders are proposed.

4. It is proposed to extend the Social Hygiene Service, for the combating of the social diseases. An addition of 1 Lady Medical Officer, 3 Health Visitors, 4 Social Hygiene Nurses, 1 Coolie and 1 Amah is provided for this purpose.

5. Three Infant Welfare Centres were opened in 1939, and 8 nurses provided. It is considered that 13 nurses are needed to staff them and 5 new posts are accordingly added.

6. General administrative requirements resulting from the above increased activities involve the addition of 10 Junior Clerical Service Clerks and also of 1 Assistant Steward to look after increased equipment. At the same time the Steward's scale has been raised from £400-£500 to

£400-£575.

HEAD 17. MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES.

   SUB-HEAD 3.-The cost of the decennial census duc in 1941 depends on population. Owing to influx of refugees it is estimated that the population will be over two million in 1941, about twice that in 1931. With stationery excluded com- parative costs are 1931 $57,000 and 1941 $80,000.

   SUB-HEADS 4-5.-For the Centenary of the British Occupation of Hong Kong it is proposed to hold celebrations on a scale similar to that of the Jubilee of His Majesty King George the Fifth. To mark the occasion it is proposed to erect a bronze statue, larger than life size, of His Majesty King George the Sixth in robes and crown. The statue will be sculptured by Mr. Gilbert Ledward, R.A., who has already done a bust of His Majesty.

Sub-Head 13.-It is proposed to make an annual grant of £100 to the Colonial Empire Marketing Board. The work of this body is to stimulate public interest in the Colonial Empire and to promote the sales of colonial products in the world's markets.

SUB-HEAD 30.-An annual grant of £50 is proposed towards the work of the Victoria League in London. The objects of this organization are to promote the social welfare of Colonial Students in London, and to assist them in entering academic institutions, in obtaining lodgings, and in general in finding their feet in a strange country. A grant is also made by the Governments of the Federated Malay States and the Straits Settlements.

Sub-head 33.-The sum of $60,000 provided for maintenance of Chinese Internees is provisional only.

Sub-heads 44 aND 45.-Owing to the gradual replacement of officers pay- ing 6% of salary towards rent without residential allowance by officers paying 12% but drawing residential allowance the expenditure under the heads of rent allowances to senior and European subordinate officers is declining.

As pay-

SUB-HEAD 46.-The amount provided in 1939 proved to be under-estimated. The present provision corresponds with the actual expenditure in that year. ment is in accordance with regulation restriction is impracticable.

HEAD 19. POLICE FORCE.

SUB-HEAD 12.-A token sum of $10,000 is provided for emergency ex- penses arising from the Sino-Japanese conflict.

SUB-HEAD: 46.-An ultra violet ray unit is needed for examination of forged documents, invisible writing et al. The use of such equipment is general in modern police practice.

Personal Emoluments.

   The Sino-Japanese conflict has resulted in a heavy increase in population in particular among the necessitous classes. This entails increased police work for which new staff is required. Chief increases are :-

1 Assistant Superintendent,

7 European Lance Sergeants.

14 Cantonese Sub-Inspectors,

2 Cantonese Lance-Sergeants, and

37 Cantonese Constables.

HEAD 20A.

POST OFFICE.

   SUB-HEAD 11. The maintenance, of supplies of the Postal Guide is con- sidered to be in the public interest, and it is proposed for this purpose to reprint annually with amendments in future. For this purpose $1,500 extra, is provided of which about half will be recovered from sales.

-

1940-1941

13

235

   SUB-HEAD 14.-The increased cost of stamps is due to provision for a special Centenary Issue, and it should be balanced by extra revenue.

Personal Emoluments.

Owing to increased public demands particularly in the Registration and Parcels Branch and to the opening of two new offices at Tsun Wan and Shaukiwan twelve more Class VI Clerks and fifteen more Class III postmen are required.

HEAD 20B. WIRELESS.

SUR-HEADS 13, 16 AND 17.-These are replacements of worn out and obsolete apparatus. The short wave transmitter will also give protection against piracy to a degree not formerly possible. The expenditure is productive of a rapidly growing. revenue receipts from wireless receiving licences alone increased from $100,000 to $135,000 from 1938 to 1939 and the increase is expected to continue.

SUB-HEAD 14.-Emergency petrol electric equipment for Air Raid Precau- tions purposes is required at four stations.

SUB-HEAD 15.-The provision of a separate transmitter for distress and safety calls is necessary to comply with the International Radiocommunication Regulations.

Personal Emoluments.

   Two new posts of Technician Class III and two of Mechanician Class III are required to staff the new short wave marine transmitter (Sub-head 17). One new post of Rigger, one of Carpenter and one of Night Watchman are required for the new Station at Hunghom.

HEAD 20C. · BROADCASTING.

The reasons for the proposed increases are as follows:

1. The rapid increase in wireless receiving licences (Head 20B, Sub-

head 13 etc. supra) calls for improved programmes.

2. Two years' Royalties and Reuter fees are payable during the fifteen

months involved.

HEAD 21.-PRISONS DEPARTMENT.

SUB-HEAD 24.-The provision of 44 additional sewing machines, making a total of 100 in use, will enable the Prisons Department to supply most of the uniforms required for Subordinate Government Officers.

Personal Emoluments.

1. In accordance with the recommendations of a Colonial Office Committee

the title of Officer replaces that of European Warder.

A

2. No increase in the staff of senior officers was made when the Stanley Prison was opened as the main prison of the Colony. It has now been found that owing to the extent of the latter two senior officers are insufficient. third with title Assistant Superintendent on a scale of £500 to £820 is accordingly proposed. At the same time the scale of salary of the Superintendent has been raised from £600 rising to £850 to £820 rising to £940. For the same reason it is considered necessary to increase the staff of Officers-by four in order to exercise effective control.

3. The opening of the Victoria Remand Prison entails one additional Principal

Officer and four additional Officers.

4. Owing to the great increase in the productive work of the department without an accompanying increase in the number of skilled prisoners it is considered necessary to promote the Principal Officer in charge of this work to a new post of Principal Industrial Officer (replacing his former post) on a slightly higher salary and to create under the Indian Staff three new posts of tailor, carpenter and smith on the scale of $1,000 to $1,300.

236

Hong Kong Annual Administration Reports, 1841-1941

HEAD 23A. PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT.

SUB-HEADS 16 AND 17.-Considerable increases in road work (under Head 24A Public Works Recurrent, Sub-head 2, and Head 30 Public Works Extraordinary, Sub-head 1) are proposed for 1940-1, and four 24 ton Tipping Lorries and three 12 ton Rollers are required for the purpose. The other three lorries are replacements.

HEAD 23B. WATERWORKS.

Sub-Head 11.-Two motor vans.

   At present all water meter repairs have to be done in the workshop and for this purpose large and antiquated lorries with a heavy petrol consumption have to be used as the department has no other vehicles.

The acquisition of two small vans will-

(1) reduce transport expenses on meter repairs to a fraction of the

previous figures.

(2) make it possible to perform many repairs on the site; thereby saving

time and transport

HEAD 24B. WATERWORKS (RECURRENT).

SUB-HEAD 1. The establishment of three new pumping stations involves increased maintenance.

SUB-HEAD 2.-More meters, for which rents are received, are being supplied.

HEAD 25. ROYAL OBSERVATORY.

   Sub-Head 12.-Upper Air Investigation. At the present stage of development of aviation, for machines flying on regular routes reports of upper air conditions are of comparable importance to observations from the ground. This is especially important in Hong Kong, where the airport is surrounded by hills. No such service has been provided prior to 1939. To meet this demand it is proposed to make a daily aeroplane flight of one hour's duration for observation of temperature, humidity, and cloud conditions round the airport up to heights of ten to fourteen thousand feet. The cost is estimated at $25,000 annually. A supplementary vote of $15,000 has already been granted in 1939 for the same purpose.

   SUB-HEAD 13.-The provision of two anemographs, one at Gap Rock and one at Cheung Sha Wan, will enable more accurate information to be furnished regarding the approach of typhoons.

Personal Emoluments.

   Owing to the expected departure of the present Assistant Director, in June, 1940, on leave prior to retirement it is necessary to appoint a new Professional Assistant. It is considered desirable that the two dates should overlap by six months.

HEAD 26. SANITARY DEPARTMENT.

   SUB-HEAD 33.-Uniforms for Staff. Owing to increase of number of Inspectors from 82 to 96 and rise in costs of materials this sub-head is increased from $13,750 to $17,500 for the 15 months.

1

Sub-READ 42.-With a view to improvement in the standard of street cleansing two. more refuse lorries at a cost of $10,000 are proposed. The other two for which provision is made are replacements.

1940-1941

15

Personal Emoluments.

237

The introduction of Chinese Sanitary Inspectors having proved successful it is proposed to increase the proportion of Chinese to European Inspectors, the savings involved being considerable. In addition an increase from 82 to 96 in the total numbers of inspectors is proposed with a view to greater efficiency. The net result is no change in the number of the European inspectors and an increase in the number of the Chinese by 14.-

   Motor Drivers.-Five additional refuse lorries and two additional meat vans having been purchased during 1939, provision for seven drivers had to be made subsequent to the passing of the 1939 Estimates. Two more refuse lorries are now proposed. Nine additional motor drivers are accordingly included in the 1940-1 Estimates.

   Coolies.-200 additional sanitary coolies were sanctioned in 1939 owing to the increased population and the incidence of epidemic diseases, particularly cholera. Provision is made to continue this addition in 1940-1 if conditions require it.

HEAD 27A. SECRETARIAT FOR CHINESE AFFAIRS.

Personal Emoluments.

Owing to the desirability of visiting at regular intervals girls registered under Ordinance No. 5 of 1938, Protection of Women and Girls, and Ordinance No. 15 of 1938, amending the Female Domestic Service Ordinance, 1923, the addition to staff of five female inspectors and one lady typist is considered necessary.

Two additional Press Censors are required owing to the increase in the numbers of Chinese newspapers.

  The other proposed additions to staff, namely, one clerk and one messenger, are due in part to the increased staff of inspectors and in part to the increased popu- lation of the Colony.

HEAD 27B. LABOUR OFFICE.

Certain labour legislation, including a Workmen's Compensation Bill, a Trade Unions Ordinance, a Trade Boards Ordinance, and a general Labour Ordinance is under consideration by Government. The provision now proposed is considered moderate in relation to the work contemplated, but the staff will only be engaged as and when this legislation is passed.

HEAD 28. STORES DEPARTMENT.

  SUB-HEADS 10 AND 18.-Owing to the all-round increase in Government activities greatly increased provision for stationery and furniture is considered necessary. A considerable part of the increase of $13,000 in the outlay for furniture will be offset by increased receipts from officers for rent of furnished quarters.

SUB-HEAD 20.-The increase under this sub-head is due to the great increase in the demand for sand, which is a government monopoly, and the cost of which is self reimbursing. The receipts on sales are expected to show an increase of $76,400 for 1940-1 period of Estimates.

Personal Emoluments.

Small increases of staff are required owing to the establishment of an air raid precautions store and of sand control stations, the latter on the sand beaches at Gin Drinkers Bay and Tai Lam Chung in the New Territories.

HEAD 30. PUBLIC WORKS EXTRAORDINARY.

See separate memorandum.

HEAD 31. FISHERIES RESEARCH STATION.

   Following an application from this Government in December, 1938, to the Colonial Developinent Advisory Committee, a grant of £10,000 from the Colonial Development Fund to cover the capital cost of the station was approved. Running expenses would be provided from Hong Kong Government funds: these are estimated to amount to less than $20,000 per annum.

   The objects of the station would be to promote scientific knowledge of local fisheries with a view to increasing the production of this important local industry, and to diffuse among the public a general knowledge of the value or otherwise of various species of fish as articles of diet. In addition the recreational attractions of the aquarium, particularly for tourists, would not be overlooked, and a part of the running expenses would, it is hoped, be recovered from admission fees.

Appendix VII.-Water Accounts.

to

Attention is drawn to a change in the method of reckoning revenue be credited to the water undertaking. It was formerly the practice to credit to that a part (2%) of the rates. As explained in the Memorandum on water charges etc. by the Financial Secretary of April 1938 (Sessional Paper No. 4 of 1938) the continuance of this was justified in part by the necessity of charging the water undertaking with its own share of the Military Contribution then equal to 20% on gross revenue. Now that Military Contribution is no longer paid as a percentage of revenue it is not necessary to charge the Water undertaking with any part of it; on the other hand revenue has still to be found to meet the fixed contribution which remains a charge on general, i.e. non-water, revenue. Adjustment has therefore been made by reducing the amount credited to water on account of rates to 1% and deleting any debit in respect of military contribution; the net effect on the water revenue is practically nil, but it represents a much more convenient accounting arrangement.

As the result of a review of the salaries of officers in senior grades which was commenced in 1937, new scales of salary have now been approved by the Secretary of State, which are set out in detail in an Appendix to this Memorandum. Officers on these scales receive while in the Colony, but not while on long leave, residential allowance at the rate of 10% of the first £400 of salary, 5% of the next £400, and 24% of the third £400, but these residential allowances are not payable to officers occupying senior super-scale posts, .e. those listed in para. 1 of the Appendix. Officers on these new scales, excluding the holders of the senior super-scale posts and certain other special cases, pay rent for Government quarters at the rate of 12% of their salaries instead of 6% as formerly and are eligible for a correspondingly reduced rent allowance if not in occupation of Government quarters. They receive no addition to pensionable emoluments in respect of the value of their quarters, whereas officers on the old terms benefit by an addition of of their pensionable emoluments.

     In the course of this review certain anomalies have been corrected and the salaries of some grades have been increased, but the net effect is a reduction in actual salaries and a very considerable reduction in pension liability in respect of these senior grades.

NOTES ON THE ESTIMATES 1941/1942.

1.-Change in Financial Year.

The Financial Yeur of the Colony will in future begin on 1st April and end on 81st March instead of 1st January and 31st December as hitherto. In order to bring this change into effect the 1940-41 estimates were based on a period of fifteen months, i.e. from 1st January, 1940 to 31st March, 1941. The present estimates are based on the period of twelve months beginning on 1st April, 1941 und ending on 81st March, 1942. By comparison with the 1940-41 estimates, therefore, many sub-heads show a 20% decrease.

Where decreases are solely due to this shorter financial period no special explanation has been made.

2.-Rate of Exchange.

The rate of exchange has been taken at 1/3d, to the dollar for sterling salaries paid in the Colony and at 1/2d. to the dollar for all other purposes.

3.-Pension Privileges.

All non-pensiouable posts are printed throughout the estimates in italics.

4.-Quarters and Rent Allowance Privileges.

(a.)-Sterling-paid officers.

To enable true comparisons to be made between scales of salary to which different terms. as to payment of rent for Government quarters, if occupied, are attached, the terms applicable are indicated as follows :-

(i) officers entitled to free quarters are shown by an asterisk, (*).

(ii) officers liable to pay rent on the basis of 6% of their salaries are shown by

a dagger (†).

(iii) the remainder, who are liable to pay rent on the basis of 12% of their

salaries, bear no indication.

In all cases officers not occupying Government quarters are eligible for rent allowances at rates varying in accordance with their liability as to rent for quarters.

(b)-Dollar-paid officers.

  If on the permanent establishment, dollar-paid officers do not normally pay rent for Government quarters which they are required to occupy in connexion with their work; and they are eligible for rent allowances at various rates in accordance with General Orders if not occupying such quarters.
