Colonial Development and Welfare,
1955-60.

THE Secretary of State has informed the Colonies
that he proposes to seek Parliamentary sanc-
tion for a third Development and Welfare .period.
It will run from April, 1955, to March, 1960. The
Colonies are asked now to prepare statements of
the projects which they consider it will be realistic
and practicable to carry out during the new period,
showing the estimated cost in each case.
2. A Committee has been nominated to consider
and advise Government on projects suitable for
inclusion in the Grenada statement. The sessions
of the Committee will commence in the near
future, as the statement must be ready for forward-
ing not later than 1st November, 1953.
3. The projects to be included in the statement
may represent the continuation of work for which
schemes have been approved during the present
Development period, or they may be new projects.
They may involve capital expenditure only or
-both capital and recurrent expenditure; in the


313











GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 12, 1953.--(No, 51).


atter case they will presumably be of an economic
nature, with the prospect of a financial return
which will at least match the recurrent cost of
the new service proposed. They may aim at the
replacement of existing amenities which have
become outworn or inadequate, or to answer the
new circumstances of modern times.
4. The actual sum that can be made available
to any Colony will clearly be a limited part of the
total, so far unknown, to be granted by Parliament
f~tua in the Goionies generally. Also, when the
Deivelopment period .epires., any recurrent charges
arising from schemes founded with Development
money will fall to be borne by the poasoring
Colony. In these circumstances and in Grenada's
uneirtain economic' -condition it wiv. surely be!
agreed 'that, while 'the strictly Social Servies must
not be lost from sight., ithe most urgent publicc
need is :for economic schemes designed be expand
the Colony's earning capacity. 'We can only keep
What We can pay for, and vwe ona t only ay from
What we'beutn.
5. The 'Committee responsible for the GCrnadat
statement will welcome any representations from
public bodies or from citizens on projects which
:are thought suitable for consideration. Such;
representationss should be addressed early to thej
Administrator.
