Today I want to write about certain categories of our citizens
which a heartless Government persists in ignoring despite its propa-
gandistic claims that its interest is the small man. The people of
Dominica have learned by now that this is merely a ruse to catch their
votes, Despite, too, its boasts that the Treasury is replete with funds
("Dominica never had it so good" ; "The biggest Budget ever")' Again,
the neglect is despite the fact that the plight of the categories of
persons to be here discussed has so frequently been brought in public
I was shocked recently to find upon enquiry that the Government stiA4
maintains and pays $1 per person as the basic weekly allowance to those
on the Poor Relief rolls. I find that this does violence to human Con-
science. Time and again this particular unconscionable policy has been
denounced in this column as an outrage against the poor because the sum
of $1 does not today suffice for one meal for the average person. How can
one expect the sum to provide subsistence for a week? This is an act
crying to Heaven for vengeance. (*)
At the time when the current Budget was presented (or was it in the
Throne Speech?), the Government gave the categorical assurance to the
Opposition that the basic rate of public assistance would immediately be
revised upward. From the information I have, this has not been done. In
the interval, though, we have seen the construction of numerous Police
fortresses put in hand, to name only one favourite direction of Labour
Government expenditure. During the same period, too, extravagant pensions
have been recommended for themselves by Government Ministers, a step
which in neighboring St. Lucia provoked hostile anti-Government demon-.
strations resulting in a similar proposal being hastily withdrawn.
We are-hearing and reading a lot nowadays about the part that
Christians and the Christian Churches should play in protesting against
such outrages and iniquities. I suggest that this particular matter be
taken up by them. I have done my share, without success. At the same time,
let me remind those persons who believe in organised public protests of
what our recent distinguished visitor, Mr. Jan Carew, told us : that it
is inconsistent almost irrelevant to protest against corresponding
events occurring far away from us, while ignoring those wrong things
taking place under our very noses.
Let me report the plight of another category of unfortunate citizens
of Dominica. A friend who has recently visited the Mental Home has been
telling me of the revolting and indescribable conditions existing in that
institution. Taling in the context of the $10,000 "refund" handout Gover*-
ment recently made, my friend felt that this sum spent on improving the
lot of those unhappy people would have made a great difference to their
welfare and the prospect of their eventual recovery. It was undoubtedly
something like that that the Parliamentary Leader of the Opposition had
in mind when at the recent House of Assembly meeting he a man of small
means urged that the members of the House subscribe from their salaries
as assemblymen the $1,000 proposed by the Government to be subscribed to
the Freedom Fighters of South Africa and that the $1,000 proposed out of
state funds be used to correct some striking public evil. Almost need-
less to say,the Ministers turned this down.
In defending itself against the charge of neglecting the inmates of
the Mental Home, it will not be enough for the Government to state that
Dr. Royer has been sent to study with a view to assuming duties in charge
of treatment at the institution at some future date. This will not ab-
solve it from the state of nakedness in whiqh some of the inmates roam
about the compound now or sit in the cramped and insanitary space in
which some cases are confined. concludedd on page four)

Attendants, despite heroic efforts and undoubted devotion, are fighting
against odds which reasonable Government expenditure could so easily cor-
rect. It is for such humanitarian services, not to provide for the wives
of Ministers, that citizens gladly pay their atsaes.
Then there is the classic, vicious and persistent neglect of the
problem of juveniles needing care and protection, Again, despite the oft-
expressed concern of the public about the sad plight of scores of deprived
young persons unable yet to help themselves, experiencing miseries and
hardships of all kinds and steadily drifting towards a life of crime,this
Government does nothing but play politics with the lives of these junior
citizens of Dominica. Do we not well recall how last September and on the
eve of the then impending General Election this Government gave consider-
able publicity to a bogus scheme for establishing a Home for these young
persons at Mount St. Mary's a mirage purposely put out, never started and
no longer discussed today, while a Minister of Government occupies the
premises which we were led to believe would be occupied by the boys? Again
I recall the words of Jan Carew and ask our protesters why they reserve
their protests for the corresponding situations of Chesterton's "very
urgent challenges to very distant enemies", leaving protest-worthy events
under their very noses unprotested.. After all, "Dominicans never had it so
good" and ours is currently "the biggest Budget.ever"I
Another vulnerable group, prostrate and helpless under the heels of
our political masters, is toe"'Mtes of the Dominica Infirmary. Not long
ago I wrote on this topic showing how in this day and age oftourly increas-
ing prices the Government provision for the maintenance of the Infirmary
was actually diverted to well-deserved and fully-.arned upping of the wages
pf the attendants, even as Hospital authorities continue to augment the
numbers of inmates with incurables occupying badly-needed hospital beds.
Readers will by now note that there is one common denominator among
all ,these unfortunate groups. It is that as voters they are not statis-
tically important Because of old age, tender age, or-aberration of
mind, these unhappy groups do not attract the attention of the present
Government as persons who never or seldom worked for Government do at
bonus times preceding General Election. Again I state that the Government
attitude in this matter cries to high Heaven for vengeance. It is the
same spirit which denies a Gov(p'pnainfin his old age to Mr. Gustavus Tim-
thyl, M.B.E., J.P., who has spent his long life working for the welfare
and advancement of one area of Dominica, but which provides pensions for
.the widows of members of the House of Assembly even though, in most cases,
their deceased husbands were patently incapable of making any contribution
whatsoever in their capacity as legislators,
As I listened to the House of.Assembly meeting on Thursday 8th July,
the overriding impression I gained from attendance was the all-nervading
inefficiency of the Government. The speeches of the Ministers reflected it.
The presentation of draft legislation gave evidence of it. Withal, there
was an overtone of mental dishonesty. Let me give examples;
Both the Premier and Patrick John most deliberately spoke on the
Market bill as though the Opposition had opposed the establishment of the
new Roseau Market, whereas the fact is that every Opposition speaker pre-
faced his remarks on the topic .ith the statement that the market was most I
welcome and here at long last. For it was the Opposition which, commencing
with its campaign for the Roseau Town Council El:ection of 1968, built up
public pressure for a new market for Roseau even. vhile the Labour Govern-
ment/Town Council -of that time defended the ineanitary condition then
prevailing in the selling of foods like vegetables and fruits on the bare
floor of the str e.ets surrounding the Dawb-iney Market. The printed evid-
ence is available to all.
The inefficiency of the Government benches was evidenced in the fact
that a few days after its ussue of the draft legislation on the Roseau
Market and following a public meeting of the OIposition Party at which
several of the Ministers listened no less th-an amendments to the draft
were offered by the Government. (Ccncius ion on next page 5)

able to growers at Reception Stat-
ions inclusive of the Summer incen-
tive price of ,250 per Ib. should
be 5.20 per lb. However, in accord-
ande with an arrangement between
WINBAN and the Purchasing Company
it has been agreed, that the Company
will recover an amount of e6250 per
lb. on account of contractual debts:
and advances on the bar.ana price
during the Winter months.
The prices payable to growers as
from that date and until further
notice will therefore be as follows:
At Reception Stations- 4.60 per lb
At Buying Points 3.80 per lb
Growers who qualify for the In-
centive Bonus will receive an
additional .50 per lb.
It should be noted that this de-
crease in the Green Market Price is
due to the abundance of soft fruit
in the U.K. as well as large impor-
tation by Fyffes of Ivory Coast and
Hurinam bananas. A.D BOYD,
