MESSAGE FGr GhIRY

13urCli:rs who broke into the Post Office in the town of Sauteurs

(at thu north end of Grenada) left messages, one of which was

addressed to Prime Minister Gairy.


When the Post Office was opened on Monday 6th, books and documents

were found strewn on the floor and it was discovered that over

100 registered letters and all ordinary mail had been opened.

Stamps, however, valued at about EC'i140.00 were untouched.



Pinned on one door was a sheet of paper on which was written:-

"Notice. Message for Gairy

We, the youth, cannot get work and it's a must. We

have to destroy you and all you Governments, Mr Gairy.

This year, ,Ir Gairy, is going to be blood and sand.

You citCher resign and let us, the youth, rule, and

remember your life is at stake in our hands.

signed Rebel Youth"



Another massage, pinned to an upright in the building, read "The

Power and the Glory", while a third message, left in an open book,

said, "Goiry is terrifying the youth, we are terrifying him back".



It is reported that the Post Office is protected by watchmen,

but it is not known what explanation was given by the men on duty.


Full extent of the loss is not known and no arrests have yet

been made.

C.P.SA. OFFICIAL VISITS


Mr James Manswell, General Secretary of the Public Services

Association of Trinidad & Tobago, General Secretary of the

Caribbean Public Services Association (CPSA) and President of

the Trade Union Congress of Trinidad & Tobago, said in Grenada

last Tuesday (7th) that CARICUM would probably bring about

eventual political union in the Westindies.



Mr Manswell, who was on a visit to Grenada to arrange for a

meeting here of CPSA later this year, said, at a Press Conference

that it was being realized that many Westindian problems could

be solved only by political action, and he felt that, after the

present crop of politicians had moved out of power, there would

be movement towards political union.

MINISTER BREAKS CONSTITUTION

At the next meeting of the Grenada Senate, Mr D. M. B. Cromwell,

Chamber of Commerce representative on the Senate, will introduce

a Motion seeking to authorise the Minister of Finance,

Mr George Hosten, to withdraw money from the Consolidated Fund

for the purposes of meeting expenditure necessary to carry on

the services of Government.



This action is necessary because Mr Hosten has failed to comply

with the Constitutional provision that, by 31st December, 1974,

he lay before the House of Representatives, estimates of revenue

and expenditure for 1975.


The Grenada Constitution provides that, after the Estimates have

been laid before the House, if the Budget is not approved by

January 1st, the Minister of Finance may be authorised to draw

money from the Consolidated Fund until the Budget is approved or

until 31st April whichever is sooner. In this case, however,

the Minister did not comply with the provision that he lay the

Estimates before the House and, thus, there was no opportunity

to debate and approve the Budget.



In 1972, Mr Hosten also failed to lay the Estimates for 1973

within the required time. Legislative approval was given to

draw on the Consolidated Fund until 31st April (as allowed by

the Constitution then in force), but this approval was exceeded

as the estimates were not laid and the Budget debated until

late in 1973.
