Fid&a.y, Jn 1974V

I bve read the "Prrposals for a Social Srcurity Security Scheme" pamphlet
put out by Government for public consideratiqt and comment and I must first
praise those concerned for letting the public know what is about to happen
in good time instRad of rushing it (with thrg days notice to the press)
through all its stages into law. In such acaso any press comment is made
useless when editors are faced with a fait ac.ompli: of course the Leblanc
"Educator-in-a-fog" can always praise it.
In this instance the editor of that Government Organ says, curiously en-
ough "but it does in some way fall short of expectations of some persons among
whom I include myself, for the reason that it does not make provision for un-
employment benefits." (My underlining). Presumably he is looking to the not-
far-distant-future when his only source of income may well be at the Bar
To return to the Provident Fund's successor, I am surprised that the com-
lete scheme as envisaged was not put into effect three years ago instead of
the Provident Fund. The reason I say this is' that 5% from the employer plus
5% from employee three years ago when employment was relatively high and the
dollar worth half as much again in terms of food and shelter, would have
bought a lot more Social Security than the 8% of worker's earnings in a bank-
rupt State with a projection for 1975 of the highest unemployment figures ever.
There is certainly no question of having a scheme for unemployment benefits --
'that would have to take some 25% of employe4.w rker's earnings (if any were
employed other than civil servants by then!)
The Provident Fund has been a great boon t, Government finances, supplying-
as it does quite a large contribution to thelmonthly issue of 3-months Treas-
ury Bills (to the lasting detriment of a mouqtnag National Debt). The new
scheme will not supply sp much for Treasury. jills, but the old discarded',NPP
:-l-b-ebi-~tr-t"rm~ over' their money for workers every motth m-po3 n o inat
6% or 7% interest per annum.
The few employers that are left (other than,, of course, the Government)
will have it hard with a contribution of 8% for all employees paid less than
$20 a week and 5% for those over $20 (the worker pays the remaining 3%). On
the top of it all will be Worker's compensation payments, yet to be determined.
Government, as the largest employer in the country, will not be exempt from
contribution which will have to cover both presently pensionable civil serv-
ants and non-pensionable -- the C.S.A. holds.;: watching brief there. Widow's
pensions and Maternity benefits show some illbgi4ality: pensions apply to both
legal and common-law wives, maternity grant o1 $,25 to "confinement of a wife"
and of an "insured woman", maternity allowance is for "an insured woman". Any
incentive to irresponsible child-bearing will. be a blow to the family-planning
programme. Anyway, actuaries notwithstanding, I.feel that the taxpayer will
have to foot a lot of the'bill either through direct or indirect taxes.
Administration costs of SS.S. will be greater than NPF due. to the variety
of benefits requiring certification. Employer? ;will figure it worth paying a
worker $20 instead of $19*90 a week, thus savyiA 50 cents. That $20 mark will
be a great headache in the case of daily paid'workers or agricultural workers
on 'task': who will check the employers? an army of inspectors? The Board will
need one of those wondermen, retired civil servants already with several
Boards to their credit, to administer the scheme in their spare time as highly
paid Executive Chairman. Finally, will pensions of ex-members of the House of
Assembly be calculated and paid out of the same fund? and the Members Pension
.tot repealed? How many monthly payments of Mfiisterial Salary will be required
to qualify for a 60% average-final-salary pension? One or two? Don't forget
.r.Leblanc that neither Egbert nor Cleve are yet. qualified and there is only
a short while to go before the General Election. It will certainly be their
last chance, the way the country is now being mismanaged.

Friday, June 26, 1974 THE S TA-R Pag --Thry-
M I C,E not M E N House of Assembly June 12,13 (P.1)
take for instance the "BANKING ACT". In 1971 the then Minister of
Finance had produced a Banking Bill which made the people of Dominica
shudder and his advisers turn away in disgust. The motive Qf the Bill
was to destroy the Credit 'Unions;, the Building Society and the Dominica
Co-operative Bank all local institutions which had served the public
well in the past. The present Banking Act bears little resemblance to
the iniquitous enactment that Armpur attempted to thrust down the throats
of a Public whiph he found to :'be far from gullible where their savings
were concerned, Obviously the objections made at the time and the advice
of Banking experts in the region, as well as knowledgeable international
advice, were accepted by the new Minister of Finance, resulting in a vital
change: the privacy of personal a counts has been guaranteed. There is
one very objectionable provision Vowever and that is.the provision for
numbered accounts. The Government' Front Bench agreed that this provision
would at the same time make provision for-the entry of tainted money into
the island and would permit crime amd pressures against Ministers which
might not be easily withstood; however the Government felt that with all
these disadvantages this introduce ion was essential to Dominica.:-
-The INSURANCE ACT which had hkd-,a first reading in 1971 was also re-
introduced and passed in all its Ot4ges. However-during the discussions
on this Act, Government for the fjrst time recognized that they were not
.sufficiently knowledgeable to be `b.e to deal with this matter on their
own, and accepted a few of the amendments suggested by the Opposition.. i
Those amendments are not sufficient 'to make the Act what it should bea nd
as a result many of the present IrqSrance Companies here will have to give
up business in Dominica, to the dqtriment,of the. Public.
In 1971the Government indicated that they had ~t.ait-e-d- --44 ----
A-griA tTBre-wimwthe mainstay of t4e :-country and should- be encouraged, and
as a result they passed legislatiqp giving a measure-of relief to persons
embarking on agriculture or exte ##g their agricultural holdings. Then
suddenly two months after the yeX ad begun Government decided that 1974-
should be AGRICULTURAL YEAR .and deOided to assist the agriculturist: they
would not charge income tax on incpme arising'from agricultural pursuits.
However they decided that if a losp was made the taxpayer should not be
allowed to write this loss off against other income. 1_This is said to be
an encouragement to young persons pbbut to ent-eW f Viris well known
'that if new land is to be broken tjere must be a loss for at. least 5 years.
This from a" Government which says st.i isintere-ted in .the small man: .T ,e
Opposition pointed out that this provision was being made to stifle t.e
small man and to prevent him from Oaking a 'go' of agriculture. It was.
obvious that the Government benches agreed with the Opposition's contention
but qome fear prevented them fom spyingso openly. They call themselves
"MEN "MICE" would ,be a much more suitable description.
Another important measure that game up before the House was the
REGISTRATION of-ELECTORS ACT. This Act provides for annual updating of
the electoral list. Provided it does not cost too much money, this Is a
very good measure. The Government refused to accept any suggestions or
amendments proposed by the Opposition. This was their particular pet
scheme to ensure that they have control of the machinery of elections so
that they can perpetuate themselves in office. The Act is open to much
abuse --abuse such as we have seen in the past and it is obvious that
parlous as the economy of the State is at present, the Labo-ur Party intends
to use the general revenue to pay for their- campaigning. They've done so
successfully in the past; it is up to the: Electors to see t-hat despite the
law being on the side of the Leblanc Labour Party they refuse to be used
again, and to ensure that the taxes pvaidinta:,General Revenue are used for
our Island State and not for any political ambitions of any person. It is
more than ever obvious that meetings of..the Hou @W7& held regularly and that
a Standing Committee of both parties should vet legislation before it

RULE OF LAW speech-by NORMAN WAWTINGTQ I"LILL ""(continued) excerptss)
Mr. Hill early proved that he had a big heart as well as a big brain.
"We must ensure that the quality of life is not ground underfoot..." he
said., about midway through his I1 hour ad ess to a freed.om-dedicated
audience, ..."the writing is on the wall, nd unless answers are forth-
coming, the climate will change to mistrust, aggressiveness and finally to
Violence. The law must provide a framework within which everyone must have
his place... That elusive balance between libertyy and constraint is it.,any
event a gamble, but it is a gamble which $e cannot afford to side-step...
We are witnessing what 1 call the battle q the liberties, collective and
individual...To opt for controlledd liberty results in the end in a de-
nial of the concept of liberty itself. To* ppt on the other hand for equality
as a sole philosophy results in a rejectiQp of the personality of the
individual. Common sense dictates that oae must search further... To
arrive at what is just in human relations ."e must analyse all that is real,
with humility and good faith... Finding :(ghality) implies the use of the
heart as well as the head... We cannot allow ourselves to be satisfied
with mediocrity."
..."An independent Judiciary is an indispensable requisite of a free soc-
iety under the Rule of Law. Such indep4dqnce implies freedom from inter-
ference by the executive or legislature 0ith the exercise of the judicial
function but does not mean that the Judge is entitled to act in an arbit-
rary manner. His duty is to interpret the law and (its) fundamental prin-
ciples. a
..."Equal access to law for the rich and the poor alike is essential to
thfe maintenance of the Rule of Law...*" Savyng that both State and the legal
profession had responsibility for this a cass, Mr. Hill said "the final'
- obligation rests on the legal professio.4 to ensure that adequate legal
advice and representation for the poor are provided, .
The role of lawyers in a ca.angi-w 34 Mr. Hill pointed out that law-
yers cannot confine themselves to the cq ct of their practise and the
administration of justice. They cannot r main strangers to Important devel-
opments in economic and social affairs., d should always" among other
duties,"be. always vigilant in the protection of civil liberties and human
rights." They should refuse to collabor3te with any authority in any act-
ion which violates the rule of law, and ShMuld be active in law reform,
especially where public understanding is slight. The Q.C. referred to an
essential tak foy 1yesepsiZ "to pre-eog p* fase? that delitoate bal-
03ao b&t"a tUS Wai at&a'tb& h -o a6 6aeanutial to-10 haf-
ns -d eb.$qlVa.nuen the speaker went on to the role of the lawyer
Selling country such as the Car bean region. "I submit," he said,-
that law and lawyers are instruments of social order... The Lawyer must
look beyond the narrow confines of the -,1 gnd gain understanding of the
society in which he lives so that he may play his part in its advancement,
He has a deep moral obligation to uphold. An4 advance the Rule of Law,
(whether as private practitioner, Attorney general or Judge wherever he
has influence) "and he should fulfill that obligation even if it brings
him into disfavour with authority or is cOntrary to current political pres-
sures... Lawyers should endeavour to secure the repeal or amendment of laws
which have become inappropriate or unjuad qr out of harmony with the needs
and aspirations of the people, to review proposed legislation and delega-
ted legislative inaotments, and to ensUte that they are in accord with the
Rule of Law..." (So that all a develop.In Society's members may "obtain
their full dignity as human beings".)
Finally, Mr, Hill dealt with the Rule of Maw and the Layman. He believed
in bridging the gap between a non-understanding citizenry and the Law,
and explained the work of the Commonwealtp Caribbean Bar Associations (of
which he is the yobUgest-ever President) t& this end. Law delays and ten
other important spheres of reqci rement-were given, plus vital recommenat-
