For week ending March 8 \(o 3 --


Returning to Grenada by LIAT flight from Trinidad last Friday

morning (28th), Mr Maudeley James, Secretary of the Duffus

Commission of Inquiry, delivered the Report of the Commission to

Sir Leo DeGala, Governor General of Grenada.

Mr James, who had left Grenada for an 'unknown destination' on

February 25th, when questioned on arrival at Pearls Airport,

refused to confirm that he had travelled to Jamaica to collect the

Duffus Report. "No comment", he said, "direct your question

to the Governor General".

A Police vehicle conveyed Mr James from the airport to St. George's,

and, as the car approached Government House, it appeared to take

evasive action from another car driven by a news reporter and

which had followed the Police car, and at this stage had closed

the distance between the two vehicles. Instead of turning

into Government House, the Police car turned off on to a by-way

leading to 1'r James' residence, which is close to the Government

House entrance driveway.

After staying at his home for a few minutes, Mr James reentered

the Police car which then took a detour away from Government House,

approaching from another direction and proceeding to Government

House via the exit driveway.

Carrying a white cloth bag which appeared to contain a rectangular

package, and accompanied by plain clothes Policemen carrying

three heavy, rectangular brown-paper packages, Mr James entered

Mr Paul Kent, President of the Grenada Chamber of Commerce, said

today (6th) that he had not yet heard anything further from

Government with reference to the proposed National Advisory

Council for Agriculture.

By circular letter dated December llth last, Government invited

some thirty organizations to nominate representatives to the'

proposed Council which, it said, would be instrumental in

mobilizingg the resources of the Nation in the work of agricultural

development, economic reconstruction and regional integration".

This decision to set up an Advisory Council on Agriculture comes

as a result of a recommendation of a meeting of Agricultural

Planners of CAi;ICOM, and Mr Kent, himself an agriculturist, has

been nominated by the Chamber to represent that Body on the Council.

The Chambor's nomination of Mr Kent was transmitted to Government

in a letter dated February 26th, and, while the Chamber had heard

nothing further from Government on the matter, Mr Kent said he

expected that he would soon be summoned to the first meeting of

Advisory Council. (164 words)
