A spokesman i for CNA said that, s a
result, the 1991 Trading Year is e.peted t.o
be poor. Efforts ithave been made by thel
Grenada Goverrnment, he said, to gt. tihe
Indonesian Government to. regulate the
export, of nutmeg from that country so that
prices can be controlled a. maintained, but
those efforts have been unsuccessful.

The spokesman said it is believed
that, like Grenada, Indonesia is
overstocked vith nutmegs and does
not vish to be tied to an Agreement-
Without a Marketing Agreement and
until the inventory is reduced, the
spokesman said, prices will remain

"Under no circumstance will NDC re-
introduce personal income tax," Mr
Brathvaite told the press then-

Rernirded of this in the interview on
November 30th, the Prime Minister
declined to comnam-nt. It would be
"unfortunate", he sid, for him to comm-ient
on a matter which relates directly to the
bud.get.


The
most he!

t say, Mr.r
Brathwaite
said., is that the budg, t vill be preseite

Under a front page headline of "Softening
Up For More Taxes ? the "Gre ;adia
Voice newspaper of Nove n' r 20t quotes
Prime Minister Brathv.ait as saying the
deficit in the 1990 Budget could tu-rn uit -
be more that EC$50 milliotr instead of the
EC$11 million originally project ted

According to the "Voice' the Prime
Minister says this increase in the
deficit is the result of debts which
were not properly reflected in the
Budgets of previous Governments
and which now have to be serviced.

"Mr Brathwaite said that instead of
recording the comm-itr-ments which sho-,uld
be met each year," the 'Voice ss
i"previou Governments had budgeted mider
expenditure for what they expected to be
able to pay."

In what, the "Voice" says, some
observers regard as a "softening up-
for a 1991 asutcrif- RB l -r;

Taxation measures, the Ministry of
Finance has issued several press '
releases giving details of large loans


These include loans from the Govermnent
of Libya and the firm of Plessy Airports,
both made by the Peoples Revolutionary
Government in the period 1979 to 1983.

One Ministry of Finance press release says
that, at 31st December 1989, the principal
outstanding on the Plessy loan vas
EC$2 5,206,842 00. The amount due to be
paid in 1991 against this sum, including
interest, arrears and an installment of
EC $6.3 million, is EC $16.06 million.


The release says Plessy has been
approached to reschedule the debt but
there has been no response and this is
seen as an indication that Plessy
wants the debt repaid as originally
arranged -
Nothing Has Been Repaid
Another Ministry of Finance release
says the total outstanding on the loans
from the Libyan Government was
E 13 564 million at 31st December
last. These loans were repayable
between 1984 and 1990 but nothing
has been repaid.

According, to the "Voice", Prime Minister
Brathwait* said. also that Grenada is in
default in respect of contributions to
regional and international institutions.

Mr Brathwaie said that, as a result,
Gr'enada recently came close to losing its
voting rights in the Pan American Health
