1975 Economic Recovery Year?
1974- was declared 'Agricultural
Year by the Dominica Government,
1975 was declared Economic Recovery
Year. This is Sept. 1975. The'
Dominican zaxious for economic re-
covery cannot see this,
I at does he see on all fronts
and in all aspects of economic pro-
gress? There is confusion in the
first place, since -the recent taxes
initiated by Finance Minister Vic
Riviere. Why, did he. not wait to. seaS
some economic recovery before em-
barking stupidly and blindly upon
heavy taxation without rhyme or
reason? Perhaps'when he blunders
like this.his,-colleagues will say,
"Dominicans will forget,"
Yes, the Dominican sees Premier
John hiring aircraft, running ..
around-.the Caribbeah looking for
aid, to do 'big things' -- to build
an. international airport; to set up
a timber "industry (?); to set up
other new industries like tea and
rice.; while the old banana industry
is being neglected.
No- one hears much about..the
training of a defense force: army in-
our neighboring territories.. Per-
haps the modern slogan is: If you
wish for. economic recovery, spend
all taxpayers' money on arms and
modern armaments. The Dominica
Government should know that U.S.A.
economy has suffered by the Viet N=m
There are too many officers in the:
Agricultural Ministry receiving pay
month after month for doing their
own thing every day in five. If
their' jobs have become redundant
why keep them in employMent forever
at taxpayers' expense?' A periodic-
al field-dcay- i a good thing. But
the agricultural office must pay
regular, useful and helpful- visits
to the farmers own particular plots,
SFarmrers do ..ot fQrget the good
old agricultural officers in the
Marigot District like White, Carbon,
Hill, etc. who'were friends of the.
farmers;. Now. that there is more.
need for farmers' visits, farmers
see them whirling around chiefly on.
their own business.
Seminars and trips abroad are
legion. .What is brought back is
agriculturally nil. And off goes the.
PremieF againr- on tourism s&gaeri

Let us take a look at how justice
is being administered in Britain
and the way. it is being administer-
ed here in Dominica nowadays. The
"LAW OP 4ENGLA1ND" (20 books) .have been
collected by: Lord Halsbury. But the
idea-of all these laws is to- atke
certain that no Government, no offi-
cial .am no policeaian shall be; a-bl
to interfere with the freedom of any
citizen before he or she has been
tried in public by independent
judges. If the police arrest a
British citizen they must bring him
"before a magistrate within twenty-
foxe hours. No Government has either
*the ~ight'or the.power to interfere
with the 'working of Justice: in Bri-
tain That, is.why the county has.
boen so happily free from civil
:trouble except -for- IRA inspired
violence. That is to. say the law of
the. land is, the master of the land..
Everybody in the United Kingdom must
obey the-Law; even the Government
must obey the law.
In England, the police is an un-.
armed civilian force.' Also' in
England, it is. still true'that when
the .matter is doubtful English Law'
puts, the freedom of a man before the
interest of the'State. Again, udgee,
once; they have been- appointed hold
their office for life. No Govern-
ment can remove them for their
opinions. The same is: true of the
civil servants and the. police. All
these people hold their appointments
through the Sovereign, whos.tandi
outside. and above all pari,. Justice
flows from the throne; Governments-
may. come ..and V but the principles
of Justice in Britain still go on
as they have done for-a thousand
years So: in Britain there is no
'electrifying team' as we now have
in Dominica. Madam, we-aho know the~ e
things must feel sad for what is-
happening in ibminica today.
Where are all the legal -bactition-
ers we are 'paying to see that justice
is. done in Dominica as it is done in
There are three persons in Domini-
ca who all Dominicans must thank #odc
for the way.they have used their con-
science; Mr.D.H.Philbert who saved
the life of people in Dominica on the.
