REGIONAL ECONOMIC COMMITTEE.

NOTICE INVITING PROPOSALS.

British Caribbean Sea Communications.

1. A number of Governments in the British
Caribbean Area, acting in association through the
Secretariat of the Regional Economic Committee
of the British West Indies, British Guiana and
British Honduras located at Hastings House,
Barbados, B.W.I., wish to formulate a scheme for
the improvement of sea communications between
their respective territories. For this purpose they
are prepared to consider ways and means of jointly
providing some form of financial assistance or
guarantee to a selected private enterprise or enter-
prises in the field of sea transport in return for an
undertaking to operate prescribed services.
2, Two services are required-

A. Eastern Services.
A vessel of approximately 750 tons deadweight
capacity with limited refrigeration, and
accommodation for 10-20 Cabin and 75
Deck passengers.
This vessel to be based on Port of Spain,
Trinidad, B.W.I., and to ply on the follow-
ing circuit :-


Trinidad ... Grenada ...
Barbados ... St. Lucia .
Montserrat ... Antigua
Antigua ... Montserrat...
St. Lucia ... Barbados ...
Grenada ... Trinidad.


St. Vincent
Dominica
St. Kitts
Dominica
St. Vincent


The vessel to have speed enabling the entire
circuit to be completed in approximately
15 days.

B. North/South Service.
A vessel of approximately 1,250 tons dead-
weight capacity with refrigeration and
accommodation for 20-50 Cabin and 100
Deck Passengers.
This vessel to he based on Kingston, Jamaica,
B. W.I., and to ply on the following
circuit:-


Jamaica ... Antigua
Barbados ... Grenada


... St. Lucia
... Trinidad


British Guiana ... Trinidad ... Grenada
Barbados ... St. Lucia ... Antigua
Jamaica, or other ports of call where induce-
ment offers.
The veesel to have a speed enabling the entire
circuit to be completed in approximately 35 days.
It is not a condition of the present Notice that
both the Services above-mentioned will have to be
undertaken by one and the same enterprise.
3. Freight and Passenger proceeds from the
operation of the prescribed Services will be earned
mainly in Sterling, and any residual financial
assistance will be paid in Sterling. It will be
necessary therefore that payment for vessels em-
ployed for the Services shall be in Sterling. The
vessels must conform to requirements of the Im-
perial Merchant Shipping Act (1894) and amend-
ments thereto, as regards passenger accommodation,
life saving appliances and navigation equipment.


As to refrigeration of vessels undertaking either
service, particulars of temperature control system
and cubic capacity should be furnished."
4. Although the process of negotiating contracts
to provide these Services will at a later stage have
to pass beyond the framework of tender procedure,
in the initial phase the Governments sponsoring
the Scheme wish to observe the underlying prin-
ciple cf competition by tender. For this purpose
proposals are now invited from interested parties for
the operation of either or both of the Services pre-
scribed for an initial period of three years beginning
1st January, 1954.
5. Proposals submitted should state the namne(s)
and/or type(s) of vessels) to be put into the
Servicess, and the estimated annual cost of opera-
tion of the vessels offered. Annual cost of operation
in this context is to be defined as Charter Hire
(or Remuneration to Owners); Bunkers (at current
rates); Repairs, Maintenance and Depreciation;
Ship's Company Remuneration and Victualling;
Administrative Expenses (to be itemised). Esti-
mated annual costs under these headings- will not
be a firm commitment on the applicants, but are
required as one of the factors to govern the selec-
tion of parties with whom further negotiations
may be conducted. (The Governments do not
bind themselves necessarily to select the lowest or
any estimate for further negotiation).
6. The later stage of negotiations with a selected
applicant or applicants will comprise binding speci-
fications of operating costs (with escalator clauses
as appropriate); forecasts of gross and nett Freight
and Passenger proceeds; determination of a
guarantee formula with or without an element of
risk remuneration as may be mutually agreed be-
tween the contracting parties.
7. In submitting an outline of proposals in the
terms of the fifth paragraph of this Notice appli-
cants will be free to vary to a reasonable extent
either up or down the size and characteristics of
the vessels) indicated in paragraph 2 in order to
take advantage of the best current offerings in the
charter market. Other things being equal, in
adjudging proposals, particular importance will be
given to the question of Cabin and Deck Passenger
accommodation, and proposals which offer a rela-
tively high ratio of Passenger to Freight capacity
will be especially welcome. Proposals which
contemplate utillising West Indian crew will also
be preferred.
8. Proposals should be submitted in writing not
later than 10th November, 1953, to the Executive
Secretary, Regional Economic Committee of the
British West Indies, British Guiana and British
Honduras, Hastings House, Barbados, B.W.I.,
from whom any further information required may
also be obtained.


British West Indies Inter-Island Ship-
ping Services

Plans for improved shipping communications
among the territories of the British Caribbean have
taken an important step forward with the recent
issue by the Regional Economic Committee of the
British West Indies, British Guiana and British
Honduras of a Notice inviting proposals by opera-
tors for the establishment of two prescribed services.
The Governments, acting through the Committee,

(GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 3, 1953.-(No. 54.)


have declared that they are prepared to consider
ways and means of jointly providing some form of
financial assistance or guarantee to a selected
private operator or operators of shipping in return
for an undertaking to run these Services, which
*shall accommodate both passengers and freight.
The invitation defines requirements as to routes,
range of tonnage, accommodation, periods of
voyages etc.; specifies cost-of-operation data re-
quired for analysing offers, and indicates the
procedure which will be adopted in dealing with
applications. Proposals are invited for an initial
period of three years beginning 1st January, 1954.
The Notice is appearing in London, Montreal and
New York as well as in the West Indies.
While two separate services are prescribed, it is
not essential that both of them must be undertaken
by the same operator. The details of the Services
are as follows:
Eastern Caribbean.
Requiring a vessel of approximately 750 tons
deadweightt capacity, with limited refrigeration,
and accommodation for 10-20 Cabin and 75 Deck
Passengers. This vessel is to be base on Port-of-
Spain, Trinidad. and its schedule will be to Gre-
nada, St. Vincent, Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominica.
Montserrat, Antigua, St. Kitts, returning to Port-
of-Spain by calls on the same route, The vessel is
to have a speed enabling the circuit to be completed
in approximately 15 days,

North/South Caribbean.
Requiring a vessel of approximately 1,250 tons
deadweightt capacity with refrigeration, and accom-
modation for 20-50 Cabin and 100 Deck Passengers.
This vessel is to be based on Kingston, Jamaica,
and its schedule will be to Antigua, St. Lucia,
Barbados, Grenada, Trinidad, British Guiana,
returning to Kingston by calls on the same route.
This Service may be be extended to other parts of
*call where inducement offers. The vessel is to have
a speed enabling the circuit to be completed in
approximately 35 days.
Applicants will be free to vary to a reasonable
extent, either way, the prescribed size or character
of the vessels) in order to take advantage of
favourable offerings in the charter market, At the
same time, vessels must conform to the require-
ments of the Imperial Merchant Shipping Act and
amendments as regards Passenger accommodation,
life saving appliances and navigation equipment,
As regards refrigeration, particulars of temperature
control system and cubit capacity should be
furnished.
Charter hire or renumeration to owners of
vessels employed in the Services shall be paid in
sterling, since Freight and Passenger receipts will
be earned mainly in sterling and any residual
financial assistance paid in that currency.
The Notice indicates certain factors to which
special importance will be attached. Other factors
being equal, importance will be given to a relatively
high ratio of Cabin and Deck Passenger accom-
modation to Freight capacity. Proposals which
contemplate utilising West Indian crews will also
be preferred.
The submission of applications relate to the first
stage of the procedure. Proposals are required to
include estimates of annual cost of operation
embracing charter hire, bunkers, ship's company


and victualling, administrative expenses, repairs,
maintenance and depreciation. None of these
estimates is to be binding on applicants, nor are
the Governments bound to select the lowest, or
any, estimate for further negotiations. The
Governments in this initial stage wish to observe
the underlying principle of competition by tender;
and the estimates are required as one of the factors
influencing the selection of parties with whom
further negotiations may be conducted, and to
assist the Governments to get a closer view of the
order of subsidy or guarantee commitments which
may be involved in the scheme.
The later phase of negotiations with a selected
applicant or applicants will comprise binding
specifications of operating costs with escalator
clauses as may be appropriate; forecasts of gross
and nett Freight and Passenger proceeds; and
determination of a guarantee formula, with or
without an element of risk renumeration, as may
be mutually agreed between the contracting parties.
Proposals should be submitted in writing by
10th November to the Executive Secretary,
Regional Economic Committee, Barbados. It is
understood that proposals will be considered by the
Regional Economic Committee at its next meeting
by the end of November, after which submissions
will be made to the participating Governments,


Official Release.

THE following is the text of a communication
received from the Secretary of State for the
Cclonies, on the functions of United Kingdom
Trade Commissioner overseas.
During the war and post war periods, when
demand for commodities far exceeded supply, the
progressing of more urgent commercial orders from
Colonial Territories was undertaken by the Supplies
Department of the Colonial Office. Now that there
has been a considerable improvement in the supply
position, it has been decided that this work should
be returned to the Board of Trade.
2. In future, therefore, enquiries concerning
difficulties or delays in delivery of commercial
orders placed with United Kingdom Manufacturers
should be addressed in the first place to the appro-
priate United Kingdom Trade Commissioner or
Imperial Trade correspondent (The Honourable
Colonial Treasurer) who will as necessary take up
the matter with the Board of Trade.

Colonial Development and Welfare Arrange-
ments 1955-1960.

THE 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.

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
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.
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.

GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 3, 1953.-(No. 54).


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 addressed early to the
Administrator.

Administrator.

Fulbright Travel Grants.

THE United States Educational Commission in
the United Kingdom announces that, under
the provisions of the Fulbright Programme, travel
grants are available to citizens of the United
Kingdom and Colonies to go to America for an
academic or educational purpose, such as study,
research, lecturing or the pursuance of other educa-
tional activities.
The basic criteria for an award of a travel grant
are as follows:-
(a) The applicant must possess a guarantee of
financial support in dollars for the proposed
period of his stay in America.
(b) Graduate students must show proof of
admission to an American institution of
higher learning. All applicants whatever
their programme in America must be
definitely affiliated with such an institution.
Applications may be made by candidates
who have not yet concluded the above
financial and institutional arrangements.
(c) Graduate students must intend to spend an
academic year of nine months in the
United States.
Professors, lecturers and senior research
workers must intend to spend at least three
months in the United States. No excep-
tions to these regulations will be made this

dance at conferences alcne.











C-OVERNMENT GAZETTE, OCTOBER 3, 1953.-(No. 54.)


(d) All applicants must be citizens of the United

Subject to Exchange limitations, all travel grants
will cover the return rail and steamship fares
between the candidate's home in the United King-
dom or Colonies and the destination in A merica.
No allowances are made for dependents' travel.
Since the iunds of the Commiss-zn are in non-
convertible sterling it is not possible to offer grants
for maintenance, tuition or incidental expenses
within the United States.
It is hoped that new arrangements will ensure
that candidates who have been selected will also
secure placement in United States Universities and
dollar support through the agency of the Institute
of International Education or other forms of
assistance.
All applications should be addressed to the
Secretary, Public Service Commission, St. George's,
