It was a sombre meeting of the
House ,of Assembly, only>.lightened
by the human element: Leader of
the Opposition H5n.Eugenia Charles
took her place (although a motion
had been passed ordering her to stay
away); she was dressed in blaUk;and
the Premier stated that in view of
the Speaker's acceptance of her ap-
ology, he.would not press his motion
The Speaker said that the
would rest, and most people were
satisfied. Hon.Ferdinand Par:.llon
sat in a chair apart from the Labour
men (in the same position as R.O.P.
Armour did once Hon.Michael Douglas
sat at the end of the bas;kbe:-.inCer1s.
There were seven Bills; asr. three
of them are going to raise the -ost
of living of the Dominican pe-ope,
who will have to pay more e;b&rkit-
ion tax, more for foreign currency
transactions, package tax etc.These
measures are supposed to set the
State on its feet, er partially so.
"They tried to blame the C.S.A.strikt
fo, our troubles, but the Minister
said in Assembly last year 'there
will bt a shortfall,"' said a'Freedom
.T'he increase of taxes will hit
the conscumer directly. You will no-
tice it when you go on with your
lives and business.
Two new Parliamentary Executives
Mr. Joey Vanterpool,Filn& .b .[- ume:
Office, and Mrs.Bernadette Th~:)a;,
Premier's Office, were announce~,
During the debate,Miss Charles des-
cribed Parl.Execs. in general as
"Parliamentary Technocrats' who are
experienced in nothing."



February 20th was a most lovely
day with grand sunshine and so
Freedom Party had a beautiful
meeting, one of the best ever
held in Portsmouth; the people of
Portsmouth seem only now to have
arisen from their slumber. It was
splendid to witness the crowded
attendance, the keen attention
and the excellent behaviour and
appearance at that meeting.
