SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATE 1955-56
(CAPITAL) No. 65.

His Honour the Senior Member presiding called
the first Order-A Resolution to place the sum of
$291,010 at the disposal of the Governor-in-Execu-
tive Committee to supplement the Estimates 1955--
56, Part II, Capital, as shown in the Supplementary
Estimate, 1955-56, No. 65 which forms the Sched-
ule to the Resolution.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir, When
earlier this month I introduced a Resolution for the
sum of $200,000 to continue repairs by the Housing
Board to chattel houses damaged by the hurricane I
stated that 4, 203 houses remained to be repaired as
at the 20th of December. I also stated that a
further independent spot check was being carried
out by people not connected with the previous sur-
vey to see whether these figures were accurate or
not. Some members, and myself suspected that the
spot cheek might show a higher figure. It did not,
it showed a smaller figure and indicated that the pre-
vious survey had taken into account a large number
,f houses that could not be repaired; so that at the
time the total number of houses still to be repaired
was actually 4,061.


S. -e latest returns received from the tiuusing
itBard snmu&etius resolution was sent aown to tne
Otler' iIae Shiow tuat at the 2bth of January the
-'le.uPmg board, has repaired V,t64 houses in ail par-
ihes;! te 'l4e. Works Department, 1,UU0; Parish
"onmnuntees, .1,t42 making a total .of 14,WQ Tne
bala b.e of'ihoues still to be repaired as at tdiat date
was 2,6Uo..
ln introducingg. the former Resolution I men-
tioned that the cost of repairs to houses was tending
to increase owing to the fact that in the early days
the Housing Board tended to concentrate on the
houses which had slight damage, while they are deal-
ing now with houses more severely damaged. It is
desired that the sum of $250,000 be supplied to com-
plete repairs to chattel houses damaged by the hurri-
Sane.
I sincerely hope-I cannot positively guarantee
it-1 sincerely hope that this is the last Resolution
on that account. It may be that there will be fur-
ther Resolutions sent to this Ron'ble Council u
respect of the other aspects of the hurricare.
Paragraph 2 of the Addendum shows that a flur-
ther sum of $20.010 is required to reimburse Planta-
tion Owners a part of the cost, up to a maximum of
$200.00 for any one house for repairs carried out by
them. That is taking into account the average cost
per house repaired by the Housing Board which, as
' mentioned in introducing the previous Resolution,
is in the region of $159.00 a house.
On the reverse side of the Addendum mention is
made of claims received from' owners of small chattel
houses who did repairs at their own expense. This
point was raised by Hon'ble Mr. Pile on a previous
occasion and I said then that the matter was receiv-
ing consideration. The Government has agreed that
the owners of small chattel houses who repaired
them alt their own, expense should be assisted, and the
sum of $15,000 is sought on that account.
There is a further class of "self help" owner-
the owners of very large chattel houses or stone
houses. I myself in the early days came across rather
pathetic cases in the 'Christ Church area of owners in
moderate circumstances who are better off than the
owners of small chattel houses and who did their
own repairs. It is considered that their claims should
be sent to the Central Hurricane Relief Committee.
Finally in Paragraph 4 of the Addendum the
sum of $6,000 is shown to be requested to rehabili-
tate the new Government Headquarters in Bay
Street. It seems that at the time of the hurricane large
amounts of scaffolding collapsed, and having collaps-
ed, bits of it vanished. Also hon'ble members will
have seen that a large part of the building was taken
over for some weeks by homeless people; and that
has meant that the buildings which they occupied
have got to be cleaned and completely repainted.
So, sir, this Resolution is for the sum of $291,-
010. I do not want it to be thought that the request
which has been twice made-once by Hon'ble Mr.
Pile and once by Hon'ble Mr. Mahon-for a com-
plete financial statement on expenditure on account
of the hurricane has been overlooked. I have figures
furnished at my request by the Financial Secretary;
but as they have not yet been published for general
consumption I would prefer that they should be is-
sued when all known accounts are in. They will then
rive a more accurate pictmIre of the position. I can,
however, say at the moment that. the various Resoln-
tions voted to date. including the present one. if
passed, will come to rather more than two and a half
million Iolnlars.

know what is going on. I have made inquiries about
the pre-fab houses made by, tthe Public Works De-
partment, and I am told that 468 of the original 500
are now on sites. If one drives around the town side
of the island it is difficult to see where they are; but
on Sunday I drove to the Crane in the region of St.
Martin's Church, in the area of Foul Bay and off
the main road one sees a number of green or red
houses that are obviously pre-fabs constructed by
the Public Works Department. If hon'ble members
are interested in seeing them made there are several
assembly points. There is one behind the Government
Headquarters in Bay Street and one on the top of
Gun Hill. There are also some by the Police Train-
ing School at Sieawell.
As regards terraced houses, the first lot of these
20 houses will be ready for occupation in three or
four weeks time. If hon'ble members feel like driv-
ing to Sayes Court near Silver Sands they will see
three lots of these terraced houses, and one of them
is practically on the point of completion.
I move, sir, that the Council condur in the Reso-
lution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
HON'BLE G. D. L. PILE: Sir,-I am wonder-
ing whether $15,000 will prove sufficient to reim-
burse owners of chattel houses who carried out re-
pairs at their own expense. I realise that it will not
always be easy to arrive at a just estimate in any
particular case; but I do hope that this is not neces
sarily the final vote in this connection, and that it
cases arise which will make it cost more than th,
$15,000 set down here, steps will be taken to look
after those eases.
As regards reimbursement of Plantation Own-
ers, I know of previous cases where Plantation
Owners have been reimbursed in full. Here the
Addendum says that they will be reimbursed in
part up to a maximum of $200.00. Does that mean
that some Plantation Owners are to be treated dif-
ferently from others? I do not know whether the
lon'ble Chief Secretary can throw some light on
.hat.
We all agree that the Government deserves
praise for the way they have tackled a very difficult
ituation-so far as we know, that is. I say that,
because when the Hon'ble Chief Secretary presents
all the bills it is possible that we may not be so con-
gratulatory, although I hope not, and I believe not.
I think they should be commended on the way this
very difficult problem has been tackled.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: As regards the
first point raised by Hon'ble Mr. Pile, it is hoped
that t6e sum requested will be sufficient to dispose
of the claims on account of owners of small chattel
houses who did their own repairs. It is possible that
there may be difficulties in dealing with individual
cases. I't is impossible at this stage to check what
precisely is hurricane damage and what might be
just normal disrepair. It must be borne in mind that
in so far as Government repairs to chattel houses are
concerned thqy did not add any frills. There have
been many complaints about (houses not being put
hack in the same condition as they were in before. I
think it is unreasonable that where people have help-
ed themselves they sAhould expect the restitution of
trimmings and out buildings.
In regard to plantations, I hope that there will
be no disputes between Plantation Owners and the
Ministry of Housing. There have been one or two
cases, I believe, where unauthbrised repairs were
made at what the Ministry considered excessive cost.
I't is possible that there may be contentious argu-
ments between the parties on that accoUnt. I will
draw the attention of the Ministry to the words "pa'-t


of the cost," and I trust that ang eases which merit
special attention will be given thbat special attention.
The Resolution was concurred in.

SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES 1955-56
(CAPITAL) No. 57
Jls iLonour tie Iemor Member Presiding ae%-
ed the second raer---A resolution to place the sum
or tilao,u at the disposal of the Uovernor-in-Execu-
tive committee to supplement the Jistulates 1aoo--t
Part 11, Capital, as shown in the Supplementary Es
timate, 19-l--56, No. 57, wjuich forms the Schedule
to the Resolution.
lOJN'.BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir, Under Item
8, Head 6-Communications (Capital) at Page 135
of this year's Estimates there is the sum of $63,000
for the purpose of continuing the programme of re-
onstrucntng the 50-foot central strip of the runway
with reinforced concrete slabs. Towards the close of
last year the Director of Highways and Transport
reported that he had almost used up that provision
and that he would do so before the end of the iinan-
cial year. He considered that the opportunity should
be taken to keep the work going rather than to stop
it until the beginning of the next financial year. Both
he and the Director of Civil Aviation pressed the
point strongly that there were certain patches where
the present work ihad reached which were showing
signs of deterioration, and which might constitute a
hazard if allowed to deteriorate further.
I think that hon'ble members will agree that
this work which has been started should not be in-
terrupted, although they will bear in mind that dur-
ing the present season of heavy traffic the Director of
Highways and Transport can only get on with the
job on the relatively rare occasions that the runway
is not needed.
This Resolution is nothing whatever to do with
the proposals for the extension of the runway which
has been under consideration for some time. The pro-
posals to that end have nearly reached the point
where they will come down to the Legislature for
consideration.
I move that the Council concur in the Resolution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
HON'BLE F. C. HUTSON: Sir,-I would like
to inquire of the Hon'ble Chief Secretary one or two
points. The first thing I would like to ask is whether
this reconstruction work is proceeding satisfactorily
or whether any further trouble has developed with
the reconstructed portion. I would also like to know
if he can tell us the total length of the runway that
has been constructed up to now. We have been
working on it for a year or so. How much is it
anticipated remains to be done?
As far as I can see, the job up there was always
an unsatisfactory one and we need to reconstruct at
least four-fifths of it. How much has been done.
how much remains to be done, and how is the por-
tion that is done standing up?
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: With regard to the
first point, I have been told that the work that has
been done is satisfactory. The Director of High-
ways and Transport is using what he calls a rapid
hardening cement so that the reconstructed areas
would be safe the day after the work was done.
I have had no complaint on the score of the work
which has been done.
As regards the amount which has been done and
the amount that remains to be done. I am afraid I
have not got that information available. As the
Addendum shows. the total area reconstructed dur-
ine the present Financial Year is 27.250 snare feet
of the work. Eighty per cent or slightly less than
80 per cent is in the normal take off or touch down

length, the first 2,000 feet from the western thres-
hold. I can, however, get the information for the
Hon'ble Mr. Hutson.
There has been much talk as to whether in due
course concrete should be used outside the 60 foot
strip. I think that it is better that work on the
central strip should continue, and the question of
putting concrete down on the outside lanes should
be considered at a later date.
The Resolution was concurred in.

SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATE 1955-56
(CURRENT) No. 63
His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the third Order-A Resolution to place the sum of
$300 at the disposal of the Governor-in-Executive
Committee to supplement the Estimates 1955-56,
Part 1, Current, as shown in the Supplementary
Estimate 1955-56 No. 63, which forms the Schedule
to the Resolution.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-This Resolu-
tion seeks an extra sum of $300.00 on account of
the entertainment of petty officers and other ratings
of ships visiting Barbados. I have often wondered
how the Harbour and Shipping Master manages to
keep expenditure within the quite small sum of
$600.00 when big ships come in and a very big enter-
tainment programme is provided with the help of
the Y.M.C.A.. the Port Welfare Committee, the Royal
Navy and Merchant Welfare League and various
organizations; but I have never heard any word of
disparagement from the men of the ships that have
come to this island. They all with one accord say
that they enjoy their visits to Barbados more than
to any of the other islands in this region.
During the last financial year, however, the calls
on the vote have been more numerous than usual.
I hope that no one will chasten me for what I am
about to say; but some money was spent from this
vote on account of the entertainment of the crew of
the R.A.F. Canberras that came here during last
year. Strictly speaking, they are not petty officers
and other ratings of ships. I think, however, that
hon'ble members will agree that the expenditure was
within the scope of providing entertainment for the
non-commissioned officers and crew of that branch
of the Armed Services.
In the Estimates for the coming financial year
it is proposed to alter the title of the vote.
Last year there was an exceptionally large
number of ships coming into the island. There was
the French training cruiser "Jeanne D'Arc" and the
accompanying craft, and three ships of the "Bay"
Class in fairly rapid succession. It is impossible to
estimate how many ships are coming in each year.
In the case of the "Morecambe Bay" which came
after the hurricane, the Government was not aware
of its coming until a day or so before. Within tne
next few weeks there will be the visit of H.M.S.
"Kenya", the new Flagship of the America West
Indies Station. The new Harbour Master has pro-
visionally prepared what I hope will be an enjoyable
programme; but it depends on the provision of
funds, and so, Sir, I beg to move that the Council
concur in this Resolution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
HON'BLE G. D. L. PILE: Sir,-It is not sur-
prising that the somewhat meagre sum which is
called for under this vote has proved insufficient.
It is in such marked contrast to many of the Reso-
lutions that come before us that I am sure no one
'will grudge considerably more if it will add to the
entertainment given the crews of these ships
(Cheers):
The Resolution was concurred in.


SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES 1955-56
(CURRENT) NO. 54

His Honour the President called the fourth
Order-A Resolution to place the sum of $69,815 at
the disposal of the Governor-in-Executive Committee
to supplement the Estimates 1955--56, Part I, Cur-
rent, as shown in Supplementary Estimates 1955-56,
No. 54, which form the Schedule to the Resolution.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,--I do not
propose'to touch on every item in this omnibus Res-
olution; but I will refer to some of the more salient
ones. The largest item by far is in respect of Pen-
sions which are notoriously difficult to estimate be-
fore the beginning of the financial year. It is prac-
tically impossible to foresee exactly how many people
will retire during any one financial year.
Note I refers to Cost of Living allowance on
account of the Treasury. During the course of the
financial year the staff of the Treasury was con-
siderably strengthened by the addition of the post
of Assistant Accountant General and three Account-
ants in the place of the previous one officer, and
four clerks. The Civil Establishment was thus in-
creased, and the increase in cost of living allowance
is reflected in the schedule of these Estimates.
Item 2 relates to a normal refund of duty such
as has been granted in the past. Item 3 relates to
the cleaning of the Registration Office. Hon'ble
members will be aware that at the introduction of
Ministerial Government the Executive Committee
Act was amended to permit the Registration Office
and the Public Trustees Office to be removed from
the Public Buildings; and the Registration Office
took shelter in the Town Hall. As long as they were
under the wing of the Judiciary, the Judiciary paid
for the cleaning; but now that they occupy spacious
and new quarters of their own they have to find
the cleaning provision for themselves.
The next item relates to an area of about 37
acres of land to the north of the Waterford Cross
Road. This was let to Mr. R. E. Gill, but during
the course of the last few months it has been agreed
that it should be taken back and used by the Gov-
ernment for experimentation in regard to the Agri.
cultural Extension Service. It is in fact being used
for that purpose at the moment. Under the terms
of the tenancy Mr. Gill is entitled to compensation
for first ratoons and plant canes. He is prepared to
accept the valuation put forward by the Government
which is shown in the note.
As regards Item 6, this matter relates to an
amount that has been already agreed to by this
Council, although it is possible that the Council was
not aware of it because it was included in the Esti
mates which I introduced last March. If my memory
serves me correctly I referred to it in passing. This
matter dates back to the time of Sir Hilary Blood
when Dr. Bruce Hamilton compiled a thesis en-
titled "Barbados and the Confederation Question,
1871-1885."
Sir Hilary Blood thought it would be an ex-
cellent idea for Government to sponsor the work
which he considered of considerable note and value,
and so enable a greater number of copies to be
printed than would be the case if Dr. Hamilton were
left to his own resources. In the way that things go,
nothing much happened in the years past, but a sum
was entered in the Estimates this year. Unfortun-
ately, printing costs have increased in the U.K. owing
to the demands for extra wages by people employed

The money spent on this account will be reim-
bursed, one hopes, if everyone purchases the re-
quisite number of copies of the book. The exact
.selling price of the book has not yet been fixed, but
will be worked out in relation to the cost. It is hoped
that it will come to rather less than 1. I hope it
will not be more than 15/-.
Item 7 relates to the discovery that certain un
,established staff in the Customs Department some
ten years ago were admitted to the Widows and Or
phans Pension Fund when they should not have been.
One individual raised the point which was noticed
;nd so this item requests a refund of the contribu-
tions made to the Fund.
Item 8 relates to over-expenditure on account
of the British Caribbean stand at the British Indus
tries Fair. With regard to Item 9 I had hoped that
the President would be in his seat today; because he
knows far more about the matter than I do. 6A
hon'ble members will be aware, the Manager of the
Peasants' Loan Bank and the Housing Loans Or
ganization has retired, and it is proposed that the
two organizations should be run separately in
future, the Housing Loans coming under the Hous
ing Authority and the Peasants' Loans coming under
a department of its own. It transpires that tbt
former holder of the combined offices was using- fur-
niture bought by the Housing Loans Organisation
Now that there is to be a separate officer he rmist
have furniture of his own paid for out of funds ol
the Government.
It is also desired that both the Manager and
the staff of the Peasants' Loan Bank should have car.
in order to carry out their necessary investigations,
and funds are required to give them loans to pur-
chase cars.
I move, sir, that the Council concur in the Reso
lotion.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
On the motion of Hon'ble F. C. Hutson seconded
by Hon'ble E. S. Robinson the Schedule was taken
as read.
The Resolution was concurred in.

CIVIL ESTABLISHMENT (PART-TIME
OFFICERS) ORDER

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the fifth Order-Resolution to approve the Order
entitled "The Civil Establishment (Part-time Offi-
cers) (Amendment) No. 2 Order, 1955."
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-This is a
Resolution that does not call for much comment.
With effect from the beginning of the coming Finan-
cial year it is proposed that the post of Medical Offi-
cer and Assistant Medical Officer, V.D. Department,
General Hospital, should be transferred to the
Health Centre at Enmore. This Resolution seeks
to carry out those intentions.
I move that the Council approve the Resolution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
The Resolution was approved.

CIVIL ESTABLISHMENT (GENERAL)
(AMENDMENT) No. 11 ORDER

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the sixth Order-A Resolution to approve the Order
entitled "The Civil Establishment (General)
(Amendment) No. 11 Order, 1955."
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-The only rea-
son for troubling the Hon'ble Legislature with this
Resolution is that a Barbadian Officer is seconded to
this Currency Board; but no expenditure is incurred


by this Government. The Eastern Caribbean Cur-
rency Board has a number of posts in the various
territories, and they were graded in relation to each
other. As a result of salary revisions in Trinidad
and British Guiana the Currency Board sought to
bring the post in Barbados into line, and proposed
that whereas this officer enjoyed the status of Senior
Clerk he s should now be put 'on the Executive
Grade. There is no expenditure on the part of this
Government, because the Currency Board pays for
the costs of salaries and pensions of its officers.
I move that the Council approve the Resolution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
The Resolution was approved.

RESOLUTION TO AUTHORISE AGREEMENT
WITH DIRECTOR OF TRAINING

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the seventh Order-A Resolution to authorise the
Governor to enter into an agreement with a person
to serve as Director of Training.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-The purpose
of this Resolution is to authorise the Governor to
enter into an agreement with a person to serve as
Director of Training. Hon'ble Members will remem-
ber that under the Training Scheme Fund Act of
1953 reports have to be laid in the Legislature with-
in four months of the end of the financial
year. Hon'ble members are also, I think, aware that
the Public Service Commission administers the
Scheme and advises the Governor on matter relat-
ing to the training of Public Officers.
In March, 1955 the Public Service Commission
submitted a proposal that a person should be en-
gaged for the purpose of concentrating on training.
It is in fact desired that this person if appointed,
should have as it were, three objectives. The first
is to undertake a more detailed control of training.
I will refer to this point in a moment or two. The
second objective is to carry out the long postponed
but very necessary task of compiling general orders.
The third is the other necessary task of examining
requests for increases of staff in departments.
Now let me touch on each of these objectives
separately. Since the request came in from the Pub-
lic Service Commission a Conference on Administra-
tion has taken place in Jamaica, attended not only
by representatives of the various governments con-
cerned, but by various business organizations within
the area. The general consensus of opinion of that
conference, the report of which has been laid before
the Legislature, was that far more intensive atten-
tion should be paid to training within the services
of the various governments in this region.
At present, as I said previously, the Public Ser-
vice Commission advises the Governor on all matters
relating to training. The Commission is carrying out
its duties to the extreme satisfaction of the Adminis-
tration; but with the best will in the world they
cannot find time to go as deeply as they would wish
into schemes and proposals for training, and so en-
sure that the money voted by the Legislature which
amounts to $65,000 a year is spent to the best
advantage.
In my view the selections which the Commissi-n
make for training courses are good, and. I know that
the Commission take a deal of trouble in considering
the claims of various candidates and in interview-
ing them. Where the weakness rests is not so much
with the selection as with the consideration of the
actual course. Is it the best possible course ? Could
a better course be arranged at less cost somewhere
else?
Hon'ble members who read the reports laid in
the Legislature during the course of last year will
see that during 1954-55 there were some 33 courses

in the United Kingdom,. 15 in the Caribbean and 38
carried out in Barbados itself. It is possible that in
some cases the money could have been spent to better
advantage in a different way.
Secondly, there is need, particularly with the
growing complexity of government since the intro-
duction of Ministerial Status, and the onset of Fed
eration, that the Civil Service: itself should be gen
rally more efficient than it is at the moment. As
the conference in Jamaica agreed, if one particular
officer can be appointed in each territory to devote
his attention to the training requirements of each
department it is thought that within a relatively
short time there should be a marked increase in the
efficiency of the departments, and the money voted
for training would be more economically and more
wisely spent.
With regard to the preparation of general
orders, I have many times since I have been in Bar-
bados regretted the absence of general orders in this
colony. It makes for a vast amount of avoidable
inefficiency. In places where I have been previously
every Government has on the shelf a book with an
index where one can see what the probationary period
is, what the procedure is in dealing with various
courses such as the granting of increments and the
101 points which crop up in every day dealings with
the public. As and when the book needs to be
amended amendments are inserted.
In Barbados these have never existed, and
Government Servants as a whole depend on a large
number of rather musty circulars which go back to
the dim past. Some of them are known to be three
hundred years old. You go back into the dim past
to seek for rulings. It is very easy to fail to find
a ruling, or you may find one and act upon it to find
to your horror that it has been amended and is not
up to date at all. There is need for the preparation
of general or standing orders for the Service as a
whole. It is hoped that the Director of Training
will carry out this necessary task for which funds
have been provided in the Estimates this year and
will provide books for the guidance of officers in the
Service.
Finally, sir, one of my worries at the moment
relates to requests for increases in staff. There is
no doubt that the introduction of Ministerial Status
has imposed a very heavy burden on many of the
departments. There is more work going on, or
cynics might say that there is more paper flying
about than before. However, it is natural that de-
partments should seek to remedy the position by
asking for extra staff.
It is quite impossible for me personally or for
any officer in the Establishment Branch to do what
is required-to go down and sit in the department
for a period of one week, two weeks, or three weeks
to see how the department actually works and
whether increased staff is really needed, or whether
by more efficient methods this extra staff can be
made unnecessary. Hon'ble members will notice in
the weeks to come quite a little procession of re-
quests for increases in staff in the various depart-
ments. At the moment all that one can do is to
discuss the matter with the Head of the Department
and discuss it with the Ministry and perhaps take
a look at the department concerned and decide
whether or not the request for extra staff is justified.
But that is not a scientific or efficient process.
It is desired to! have this officer who will attei d
to these three problems. Hon'ble members will
readily agree that it is no use getting a man unless
he is a good man; and if you are going to get a good
man you must pay for him. A salary at the rate of
$8,160 a year is suggested. The Government has no
particular person in mind and in the event of the
Resolution being approved, the Government will look


for some one who has ha4 experience in administra-
tion in various territories, a man with a neat mind
who will be able to compile general orders, and
preferably a man with a knowledge of organisation
and methods.
I personally have no doubt that this post will.
bring about a much needed improvement in tht
efficiency of the Service, and the Public Service Com-
mission of which Sir John Saint is the able Chair-
man, is convinced that this person is really needed..
It will be seen from the Schedule that it is proposed
to make the engagement for a period of three years
in the first instance. The money is available in two
parts of the Estimates. First under the Training
scheme which is under Head XXIX, Item 58. Those
provisions have been inserted in the Estimates for
the last year or two, and it is proposed to seek a
similar provision by revote in the Estimates for the-
coming financial year.
I beg to move that the Council approve the
Resolution.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
The resolution was approved.

RESOLUTION FURTHER POSTPONED

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the eighth Order-A Resolution to place the sum of
$7,050 at the disposal of the Governor-in-Executive
Committee to supplement the Estimates 1955-56,
Part II, Capital, as shown in Supplementary Esti-
mate 1955-56, No. 27, which forms the Schedule
to the Resolution.
On the motion of Hon'ble R. N. Turner seconded
by Hon'ble F. E. Field further consideration of the
item was postponed.

BILL TO AMEND HAYNES PENSION ACT

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the ninth Order-A Bill to amend the Haynes Pen-
sion Act, 1950.
On the motion of flon'ble R. N. Turner seconded
by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Bill was read a first time.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-the Objects
and Reasons of this Bill are self explanatory. Mr.
Haynes was Manager of the Peasants' Loan Bank
and I am sure that Hon'ble Members will agree with
me that he has given this Government long years of
veis faithful, conscientious and valuable service.
Mr. Haynes has recently retired. His post was not
pensionable as such, and therefore it was necessary
to seek special legislation in order to provide him
with a pension. An Act was passed perhaps pre-
liaturely in 1950 in respect of what was then the
amount of the pension. There was a salary revision
since then, and the amount of Mr. Haynes' emolu-
ments went up. It is therefore necessary to change
She amount in the Act from $2,304 to $2,560 a year.
Sir, I beg to move that the Bill be read a second
time.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
The Bill was read a second time.
The two clauses of the Bill wele read and agreed
to.
On the motion of Hon'ble R. N. Turner
seconded by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Bill was read a
third time, and on like motion was passed.
BILL TO AMEND CUSTOMS TARIFF ACT
His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the tenth Order-Bill to amend the Customs Tariff
Act, 1921.
On the motion of Honlble R. N. Turner
seconded by IIon'le F. E. Field the Bill was read

HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-Hon'ble mem-
bers may be a bit puzzled at the reasons for this Bill
because of the existence of the Consular Conventions
Act; but if they read that Act they will see that it is
only. applicable to the Consuls of countries with
which an international convention has been con-
eluded. No such convention exists between the U.K.
and Venezuela, and therefore the provisions of that
Act do not apply to the case of the Venezuelan Con-
sul who, as hon'ble members know has been granted
provisional reco5.i'luio by this Government. Tne
Consul naturally raised the question of his position,
and after reference to Her Majesty's Government,
it was decided that he was eligible for the concession
of bringing into the island on first arrival personal
and household effects duty free, as well as a motor-
car imported into the island within three months
of his arrival. If he claims further concessions we;
will take them up.
Due to the hurricane and the congestion of
,Government business there was a certain amount
of delay in getting this legislation through all of its
stages, so the words "within such further period a.
the Governor-in-Executive Committee may in any
special circumstances allow" were inserted. Those
words appear in the Bill in italics; but I do not
think it was intended that they should appear thai
way. I think that that is a printer's error. I will
add that this concession only applies to a person
who is not a citizen of the United Kingdom and
Colonies, not engaged in private occupation for gain
in the island and one who is a permanent employee
of the Government of the Republic of Venezuela, or
if not a permanent employee of that country, was
not resident in the island at the commencement of
his employment as a consular officer of that Govern
ment.
I beg to move that the Bill be read a second
time.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
The Bill was read a second time.
Clause 1 was read and agreed to.
Clause 2 was read.
HON'BLE V. C. GALE: Sir,-Does this clause
mean that if the Consul bought a new car he would
not be able to bring it in duty free?
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: I suppose that ii
he did purchase a car never used before this clause
would not apply. It is assumed that he had a car
which he did bring with him, and I think that that
is in fact the case.
The clause as read was agreed to.
On the motion of Hon'ble R. N. Turner seconded
by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Bill was read a third time
and on like motion was passed.

BILL TO PROVIDE FOR CONTROL OF
ADVERTISEMENTS

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding called
the eleventh Order-Bill to make provision for the
control of advertisements.
On the motion of Hon'ble R. N. Turner seconded
by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Bill was read a first time.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: Sir,-Since I have
been here I have hoped that legislation would be put
on the Statute Book to provide some sort of control
of advertisements which deface the roads of the
countryside. The reason for the long delay in in-
troducing this legislation would take a long time to
explain. In brief, the Government has been consid-
ering comprehensive Town and Country Planning
legislation over a long period. This is a very copi-
plicated subject, and the necessary legislation is
even now not yet ready for presentation. The con-
trol of advertisements had a place in that omnibus
and rather comprehensive legislation; but it is felt


that the need for the control of advertisements is so
pressing, that rather than wait for the larger legisla-
tion, special legislation should be sent down.
Within the last two years both the Barbados
Publicity Committee and the Tourist Development
Association have requested the enactment of legisla-
tion along these lines: Competition in commerce, as
hon'ble members would know better than 1, is ex-
ceedingly keen, and therefore if one business firm
sees fit to erect a particular advertisement at a key
point along the road, or corner, it is only natural
that the firm's business, rival should want to put
up a similar notice advertising his wares at the next
point along the road. So the situation keeps getting
worse and worse.
The object of this legislation is to provide for
control of both advertisements that have been already
erected and those that would be erected but for the
passing of this legislation. Anyone who has passed
along the roads in Long. Island as I did when in the
U.S.A. would be horrified at the number of adver-
tisements on either side of many of the roads; and
the roads in England are not much better. We hope
to prevent that sort of thing from happening in this
island.
I will now run briefly through the provisions of
the Bill. There is a rather wide definition of "adver-
tisement" in Clause 2. In Clause 3 provision is made
for the Executive Committee to make regulations re-
lating to the dimensions, appearance and position of
advertisements, the sites of the advertisements, the
manner in which such advertisements are to be affixed
and other things in respect of the carrying out of
the provisions of the Act.
Clause 3 (2) (a) provides for an individual de-
scribed in the Bill as the "person" from whom con-
sent must be obtained for the display of advertise-
ments and who may require them to be removed. In
order that such person shall not exercise his powers
in a tyrannical manner, provision is made for an Ad-
vertisements Advisory Committee which is to, as it
were, keep him on the right road.
Regulations need not be island-wide, as sub-
clause (3) shows. They may apply to particular areas
and may refer to advertisements which are already
displayed.
I think, sir, that this is a good time in which to
introduce this legislation because much to my delight
the hurricane got rid of some of the advertisements
that I particularly disliked.
Clause 4 relates to compensation to the people
who are required to remove their advertisements.
They are to be compensated for the cost of the re-
moval. I hope that it will not be necessary to cause
too many to be removed. It is mainly a question of
putting them in places where they can achieve their
object without being an eyesore.
Clause 5 gives the right of appeal to the Govern-
or-in-Executive Committee, and Clause 6 relates to
the determination of claims for compensation, which
Will be heard by a Judge of the Petty Debt Court.
Clause 7 provides that claims for compensation shall
be paid out of the Public Treasury.
Hon'ble F. E. Field seconded the motion.
HON'BLE Dr. C. H. St. JOHN: Sir, Perhaps
the title of this Bill could be clearer. Sometime ago
there was the question of medical newspaper adver-
tisements. This Bill really relates to placards and not
to newspaper advertisements.
HON'BLE R. N. TURNER: I think that Hon'ble
Mr. Field should be able to reply to Hon'ble Dr. St.
John's point as regards the title of the Bill. As re-
gards what advertisements here means, that is set out
in the body of the Bill.

]HON'BLE F. E. FIELD: Sir, 1 do not know
if the hon'ble member could suggest a better sAort
title for this Bill. The definition of advertisementn"
is drafted widely, and it is intended to exempt by
regulation certain types of advertisements from the
provisions of the Act as is done in England. There
they exempt certain types of advertisements that
have no ill effect on the countryside. It is iur that
reason that we use the word "advertisement". It is
better to leave it wide than to keep it within strict
terms.
HON'BLE J. A. MAHON: Sir,-I am wonder
ing if Clause 2 would control advertisements on
loud speaker vans. They are quite a nuisance, and
I wonder if we would be able to control them under
the provisions of this Bill or whether the Government
would have to introduce special legislation for that
purpose.
HON'BLE F. E. FIELD: I do not think that
this Bill would apply to loudspeaker advertising vans.
Clause 2 defines "advertisement" thus:-
2. In this Act, unless the context otherwise re-
quires "advertisement" means any word, letter,
model, sign, placard, board, notice device or repre-
sentation whether illuminated or not, in the nature
of and employed -wholly or in part for the purpose
of advertisement, announcement or direction, and
without prejudice to the foregoing provision, includes
any hoarding or similar structure used or adapted
for use for the display of advertisements and refer-
ences to the display of advertisements, shall be con-
strued accordingly.
I agree that those vans are a nuisance, but they
can probably be restricted by some other legislation.
HON'BLE Dr. C. H. St. JOHN: Would it not
be possible to insert words which would cover the
point that Hon'ble Mr. Mahon made ?
IHON'BLE G. D. L. PILE: Sir, Years ago
when I was on the Executive Committee I suggested
that somethingg of this kind should be done. I quite
agree with what Hon'ble Mr. Mahon said, but I think
that us it would be difficult for the Hon'ble Acting
Attorney General to draft an amendment on the spur
of the moment, the debate on this Bill could be ad-
journed so as to give him time to do it properly. It
woulei be an excellent thing if loudspeaker vans ad-
vertising goods could be prohibited.
HON'BLE P. E. FIELD: I frankly think that
it would be wrong in principle to put into this Bill
a provision dealing with the control of loudspeaker
vans. This Bill is intended to deal with something
tangible, things that you can see. As soon as vou
speak of loudspeaker vans you will have to take radios
into account, because we can also have radios blar-
ing out announcements. We maiy have to think of
Rediffusion, and we will get involved in all kinds
ofconsiderations that we had not thought of. That
should be dealt with by other legislation, particu-
larly when you get local government and councils
passing local Bills.
HON'BLE G. D. L. PILE: Surely it is not be-
yond the hon'ble member to draft an amendme-t
which would meet the case; but perhaps he would
like to draft a separate Bill to deal with the pownt.
HON'BLE D. H. L. WARD: Sir, There is
no doubt tllhat this Bill does interfere to some extent


with property rights. If a man has a piece of land
he has a perfect right to erect any structure on it
that does not interfere with his neighbours. I am
not against the Bill, but I am merely referring to
one of the rights given by the common law. It some-
times happens that for the good of the community
those rights have to be curtailed Bearing that in
mind, I wonder if the question of compensation in
this Bill goes far enough. As I see it, compensation
will only be given for the expense of removing an
advertisement.
There are a lot of small people in this island
who get paid by firms for allowing the firms to erect
advertisements on their land A man may get ten
dollars a year for allowing the erection of an ad-
vertising sign on his land. Such advertisements may
be unsightly, and the community rightly feels that
they should be removed; but you are calling upon
a small holder to give up the gainful use of his land.
At least some compensation should be paid to him
also. Some arrangement could be made to compen-
sate him on. a sliding scale for at least three years
loss of the value of the advertisement which was
erected on his land.
HON'BLE K. R. HUNTE: Sir, There is no
doubt about it that this island is being badly dis-
figured by these advertisements. I happen to be the
Director of a company that is reasonable for some of
that disfigurement; but so long as there is no control
firms will continue to do it. We are now thinking of
coming down Hastings Road and putting up signs.
That shows that these advertising signs are coming
ever nearer and nearer to the residential districts.
As regards Hon'ble Mr. Ward's point, I do not
think that the people on whose lands these signs
were erected were particularly eager to have them
there. Firms use persuasive methods to encourage
people to allow the erection of these signs on their
lands. The loss of revenue caused to those people by
the taking down of the signs will be so small that I
do not think they will miss it.
I feel that the Bill has come at an opportune
time, just after the hurricane. I am of the opimon
that the erection of these signs should be curtailed
as soon as possible.
The Bill was read a second time.
The seven clauses of the Bill were read and
agreed to.
On the motion of Hon 'ble R. N. Turner second-
ed by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Bill was read a third
time, and on like motion was passed.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES BILL FURTHER
POSTPONED

His Honour the Senior Member Presiding call-
ed the twelfth Order Bill to amend and con.
solidate the laws relating to weights and measures.
Consideration of the Bill was further postponed
as the Report of the Select Committee had not yet
been circulated.

ADJOURNMENT

On the motion of Hon'ble R. N. Turner second-
ed by Hon'ble F. E. Field the Council adjourned
