     Option A :

     "A President and four members who shall be sitting members of the States; and up to two
     voting members appointed by the Board and who shall not be members of the States;provided
     that neither the President nor any member of the Board shall be the President or a member of
     the Transport Licensing Authority.",

OR, only if Option A shall have been defeated,

     Option B:

     "A President and four members who shall be sitting members of the States; and up to two
       non-voting members appointed by the Board and who shall not be members of the States;
       provided that neither the President nor any member of the Board shall be the President or
       a member of the Transport Licensing Authority."

2. To amend the Rules of Procedure -

     (a) by inserting immediately after the words "propose eligible candidates" in paragraph (a)
          of Rule 16(4) -

             "; provided that where the proposition is to elect a President of the States' Trading
             Supervisory Board, he shall first invite the President of the Policy & Resources
             Committee to propose an eligible candidate, and thereafter other Members to propose
             eligible candidates", and

     (b) by deleting Rule 40(4) and replacing it with the following -

            "(4) The members forming the quorum of the States' Trading Supervisory Board shall include
             at least 3 members who are Members of the States.".

3. To agree, in the event that the above Propositions are approved, that -

     (a) until such time as elections have been held to fill the offices created under Proposition 1, the

           before the approval of that Proposition,

     (b) when elections are first held to fill the offices created under Proposition 1 -

             (i) any member of the States' Trading Supervisory Board as constituted immediately before
                  those elections who is a sitting member of the States, may elect to fill one of the vacancies

                   member shall fill the vacancy in question without the need for further election, and

             (ii) any member of the States' Trading Supervisory Board as constituted immediately before
                  those elections who is not a sitting member of the States and has not resigned from office,
                  shall be deemed to have been appointed to fill one of the vacancies to be filled by a person
                  who is not a sitting member of the States, without the need for further appointment, and

(c) the amendments to the Rules of Procedure under Proposition 2 -

             (i) shall have no effect until such time as elections are first held to fill the offices created for
                  sitting members of the States under Proposition 1, and
