NOTICE.

Colonial Development and Welfare Arrange-
ments 1955-1960.

f HE following Committee, which will have the
benefit of the advice of the Windward Islands
Financial and Economic Adviser, has been
appointed to advise on Grenada's requirements for
Colonial Development and Welfare assistance for
the period 1955-1960.

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
for use in the Colonies generally. Also, when the
Development period expires, any recurrent charges
arising from schemes founded with Development
money will fall to be borne by the sponsoring
Colony. In these circumstances and in Grenada's
uncertain economic condition it will surely be
agreed that, while the strictly Social Services must
not be lost from sight, the most urgent public
need is for economic schemes designed to expand
the Colony's earning capacity. We can only keep
what we can pay for, and we can only pay from
what we earn.
5. The Committee responsible for the Grenada
statement will welcome any representations from
public bodies or from citizens on projects which
are thought suitable for consideration. Such
representations should be address early to the
Administrator.
W. MACMILLAN,
Administrator.

Colonial Development and Welfare,
1955-60.

T HE Secretary of State has informed the Colonies
that he proposes to seek Parliamentary sanc-
fion 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, 1958.
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
matter 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.
