HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: Senator
Sandiford, On behalf of other Senators I would like
to extend to you a very cordial welcome to this hon-
ourable Chamber. I would also like to take the oppor-

Minister of Education. No doubt you fully realise that
your Portfolio is one of the biggest and one of the
.most responsible of all the Ministries inthis island.


I feel certain that with your brilliant scholastic
attainments you will be able to discharge your duties
most efficiently and we look forward to your contri-
bution to the debates of the Senate. Iam certain that
you will always endeavour tomaintain its dignity. Once
again I welcome you. (Cheers).

for your words of welcome. I am fully conscious of
the high honour which has been bestowed upon me in

Mr. President, and fellow Senators, I am happy
and honoured to be admitted to this Chamber.

PAPERS

Senator the Honourable H. A. Vaughan, Minister
of State and Leader of the Senate, laid the following
papers:-

(i) The Customs Duties (Barbados Family
Planning Association) Order, 1967.

(ii) Reports of the Waterworks Department
for the years ended 31st March, 1965
and 31st March, 1966.

SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES (CURRENT) No.9

The President called the first Order, A Res-
olution to place the sum of $2,059 at the disposal of
the Government to supplement the Estimates, 1967-
68 Part I Current as shown in the Supplementary
Estimates, 1967-68 No. 9 which forms the Schedule
to the Resolution.

SENATOR THE HON. H. A. VAUGHAN: Mr.
President, -- It became necessary to arrange for
certain Polio victims to be treated at the University
of the West Indies Hospital in Jamaica. A sum was
voted to cover the cost of their transportation and the
medical attention which they received ; but the bill
from the authorities in that territory didn't come in
until very recently indeed and the result was that by
an oversight the amount to cover the cost of this ex-













ercise was not revoted last year, and it is necessary
to vote as much of the original amount as would cover
the expenses incurred.

I move, sir, that the Senate concur in the Reso-
lution.

Senator the Hon. F.G. Smith seconded the motion.

The question was put and agreed to.

SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES (CURRENT) No. 10

The President called the second Order A'Reso-
lution to place the sum of $991.50 at the disposal
of the Government to supplement the Estimates,
1967-68 Part I Current as shown in the supplemen-
tary Estimates, 1967-68 No. 10 which forms the
Schedule to the Resolution.


SENATOR THE HON. H. A. VAUGHAN: Mr.
President, -- As members of this Chamber are
aware, the former Chaplain of the Other Place who,
for 14 years served faithfully in that capacity, died
early in 1965. His widow petitioned the House for
some sort of gratuity andalsoto make some contrib-
ution towards the clearingoff of his funeral expenses.

The matter was carefully considered by a Com-
mittee of the Other Place consisting of members of
both sides of the House. That Committee unanimous-
ly recommended that the Revd Coleman be granted
an ex gratia payment of one year's salary plus a
sufficient sum to pay the costs of his funeral expenses.

Those two amounts Mr. President, total $991.50,
the sum asked for in this Resolution.

I move, sir, that the Resolution be concurred in.

Senator the Hon. F. G. Smith seconded the motion.

SENATOR W.W. BLACKMAN: Mr. President, I
am happy to support this Resolution. The late Revd.
Coleman came along and worked in the hard days, and
I am glad to see that the Government has introduced a
Resolution of this nature. I commend it.

The question that the Resolution be concurred in
was put to the Senate and agreed to.

SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES (CURRENT) No. 11

The President called the third Order -- A Res-
olution to place the sum of $1,500 at the disposal of
the Government to supplement the Estimates, 1967-
68 Part I Current as shown in the Supplementary
Estimates 1967-68 No. 11 whichforms the Schedule
to the Resolution.


SENATOR THE HON. H. A. VAUGHAN: Mr.
President, -- It may seem strange or amusing ac-
cording to one's point of view that after passing a
Resolution last week to help another sports associa-
-tion we should be nowengaged in consideration of this


Resolution to offer some help to the Barbados Table
Tennis Association.

What I stated then, and what Ihope is still in the
memory of members, also applies to this Resolution.
I do not have in this particular case to advance the
claims of the Association for help. The results which
we have got so far somewhat justify our high hopes
because this Association actually holds the champion-
ship in the area.

However, sir, you cannot buy championships by
subventions to associations. The most that you can
do is to help them to the best of your ability and hope
that those who represent the nation in a particular
field of sport will give of their best.

There are two things that Iwould like to mention.
As in the case of the Resolution last week the amount
asked for by this association has been cut by nearly
two-thirds. Secondly, I am happy to say that in the
case of this Association the authorities promised to
do what they could in order to raise funds by dances
and similar efforts.

I would like to add, Mr. President, that before
this amount was agreed to by way of a grant to the
Table Tennis Association they were distinctly told
that there was no point in waiting until the last min-
ute to come to the Cabinet. No request of this kind
will stand the remotest chance of being favourably
considered unless it is :sentto the Ministry concer-
ned and considered by the Cabinet as a whole atleast
three months before the event for which the money
is being asked.
Any action that will be taken now, sir, is not the
result of anything said in this Chamber valuable as
it is, but as the result of a decision taken by the Cab-
inet.

I move, sir, that the Resolution be concurred in,.

SENATOR THE HON. F.G. SMITH: Mr. Presi-
dent, In seconding that motion I want to say that I
make no apology for what I saidonthe last occasion.
I want to give the Senate the assurance that the Gov-
ernment plans in the near future to establish a system
and in due course this whole question of these organ-
isations will be considered.

The question that the Resolution be concurred
in was put to the Senate and agreed to.


BILL TO PROVIDE FOR THE ACQUISITION,
DEPRIVATION AND RENUNCIATION OF
CITIZENSHIP

The President called the fourth Order -- A
Bill to provide for the acquisition, deprivation and
renunciation of citizenship of Barbados and for
purposes incidental to or connected therewith.

SENATOR THE HON. P. M. GREAVES: Mr.
President,- As the subject matter of this Bill falls
within my responsibility it will be my duty in due
course to move its second reading.












The purpose of the Bill is to provide for the ac-
quisition, deprivation and renunciation of citizenship
of Barbados under the Constitution.The.Constitution
provides for persons who were born here, for persons
whose children are of Barbadian fathers andforpeo-
ple who were not born here, but who have acquired
Barbadian citizenship. It also provides for the regis -
tration of persons who are wives of Barbadian citi-
zens, and for persons who are registered aliens who
become naturalised Barbadians on the 29th Novem-
ber, 1966.
Of course the Constitution enables persons who
are Barbados born (with few exceptions) to become
citizens of Barbados; but there are other persons
resident in Barbados who may or may not be Com-
monwealth citizens, but have been resident here for
several years and have come to recognize themselves
as Barbadians and who may want to become Barba-
dians. The 1951 law recognizes persons who have
been .resident here for a period of seven years as
natives of Barbados. This Bill will more or less
rationalise the position.
Now, there is something that should be said pub-
licly, and which, as far as I am aware, has not yet
been said. It is in connection with the registration of
wives of Barbadian citizens. At the conference in
London at which every party represented in the Legisla-
ture was present, it was settled that the wives of
Barbadian citizens, such not being born in Barbados,
were entitled to be registered; buttherewere certain
exceptions in the interest of national security and
public policy.

It is very significant that although that has been
agreed to, it has been omitted from the Constitution
not only with respect to the wives of persons who were
Barbadian citizens on Independence Day, but persons
who married Barbadian citizens after Independence.

This is not the only instance of deviation from
the agreement made at the London Conference. As
far as I understand it is so with respect to other Con-
stitutions in the area.

As regards the wives of Barbadian citizens,
wives who are not citizens of Barbados, they will
have to be registered; they will have to keep within
the four walls of our Constitution.

This Bill does make provision for such regis-
tration, and in due course Regulations will come
down amplifying the position.

Commonwealth citizens will qualifyif they have
been resident in Barbados for a period of seven years
immediately preceding the application and if they
can satisfy the authorities that the period of resi-
dence amounts to seven years. Registration will be
at the discretion of the Minister responsible for Home
Affairs. He has certain discretionary powers under
the Act.

At this point I maysay that the Senate will recall
that at the invitation of the Other Place the Senate ac-
quiesced in appointing a joint committee to consider
this Bill. The Bill was duly considered by the com-
mittee and was agreed to.


I must add that there was only one outstanding
point that did not receive agreement. That comes
under Section 4 (3) of the Constitution and mention
is made in the Report of the Committee which, I un-
derstand, has been circulated. That sets outthe area
of disagreement.

Now, sir, our Constitution was drafted after the
Crown Law Office had taken a careful look at, and
examination of, the Constitutions of the Independent
Caribbean nations -- Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago,
and Guyana. In this respect the Constitution of Jama-
ica is very relevant because this very section does
appear in the Guyana Constitution and provision had
to be made for it by Act ofParliament.We discov-
ered that Guyana dealt with it in much the same way
as we are dealing with it. We are not supposing that
the sub-section or section is, as some members have
pointed out, ultra vires.

This act also makes provision for other purposes
apart from the acquisition of citizenship. It also pro-
vides for the renunciation of citizenship, as well as
deprivation of it; and the Minister willhave power
under the act to deprive of citizenship persons who
do not derive their citizenship from the Constitution,
and persons who have acquiredBarbadian citizenship
by making a false declaration of the material fact or
by fraud. I would submit that this is in order.


The Minister, when he exercises his power, will
have to inform those persons in writing ofthe ground
on which he proposes to make an order and will
have to inform such persons of their right to have an
inquiry. If the person applies to the Minister to
have an inquiry, the Minister will have to set up a
Commission of Inquiry under the chairmanship of a
person who has been a judge in a Commonwealth
Court.

The rights and privileges of the Commission of
Inquiry will be the same as those of any such Com-
mission set up under the Commission of Inquiry Act.




The Minister also has power under this Act to
grant certificates of citizenship in cases where there
is some doubt. Let me illustrate by example. It is
only in the late 19th Century that registration of births
was provided for in Barbados. Persons born in the
1880s and still alive, their births might not-be reg-
istered in the Registration Office. If such persons
can satisfy the Minister that they are lBarbaadian or
the children of Barbadian fathers, the Minister will
have the power to grant a certificate of citizenship.


This in effect is what the Bill is about, and I
move, sir, that it be read a second time.


SENATOR THE HON. F.G. SMITH: Mr. Presi-
dent, -- I beg to second the motion. I would like to say
that this Honourable Chamber if itpassesthis piece
of legislation will have taken an important step along
the road of nationhood, not because of the Constitution,


_ ~











but because for the first time we will have Barbadiahi
citizenship.

This is very important. Only this weekthere ap-
peared in the Times a case of a citizen of the West
Indies. It was heldthat citizens of the West Indies had
no automatic right to enter into the U.K. This Bill
before the Senate will give us the right to enter Eng-
land because we are citizens of Barbados. It will give
us status and a sense of pride and self respect, and
people will know that they are citizens of Barbados,
and that however small our island may be we have a
status comparable with that of the big nations.


Under Clause 9 Parliament may make provision
fortheacquisitionof citizenship of Barbados etc.
The constitution itself clearly states that Parliament
must have this legislation passed. This constitution
is a very sacred document, not parts of it, but the
entire constitution. Just as the constitution in Section
65 states that the other ministers shall be appointed by
the Governor -General acting on the advice of the Prime
Minister from among the members of the two Houses
it also says that we must pass an Act concerning
the acquisition, deprivation and renunciation of citi-
zenship.

This government acts constitutionally. You hear
allegations that the Government does something that
it had no constitutional right to do. I do not know how
the Government can be wrong when it obeys the con-
stitution. I do hot see howa matter of censure arises.

A draftsman does not draft an Act in isolation.
He must look at countries with comparable legislation
In this case we have had the legislation of four coun-
tries which obtained Independence and in which this
question of citizenship arose. As the Minister of Home
Affairs said and his actions will be the target of
criticisms he is part of the Government and carries
collective responsibility. A chain is no stronger than
its weakest link.

I am saying that we do have a constitution in the
Caribbean with a similar provision. Guyana's has a
similar provision in Section 7. Our provision is iden-
tical in wording. It also deals with this question of
National Security and Public Policy. As senators will
appreciate you cannot define National Security and
Public Policy. They change from time to time. In no
constitution in the British Commonwealth has there
ever been a definition. So the only way to carry out
the constitution is to grasp it in the way that the
draftsmen in Guyana and in Barbados drafted it. Ja-
maica has a similar provision.

It is amusing to hear lawyers saying that this
particular section is unconstitutional. Let them chal-
lenge it. We will be only too happy to take up that
challenge. Some people acquire a profession over-
night and then constitute themselves as the greatest
constitutional lawyers in the world.

From the report of the Select Committee you will
see that it consisted mainly of lawyers and Senator


Alkins was like corn before fowls in the presence of
legal men. I am saying that if the occasion arises let
this be challenged. I am not saying that I am one of
those people who say that they know all the law. The
law is too vast. My knowledge is infinitesimal com-
pared with what the law is; but Istill know more than
some people.

I have had the benefit of the advice of Professor
Marshall and Professor Paget of Oxford University,
and I prefer to err with them than to shine with some
people. I am asking members to accept this section
which has been drafted in the only way in which it
could be drafted. There is no possible definition of
National Security and Public Policy.

There have been criticisms that you are putting
too much power in the hands of one man. For the min-
ister to administer this Act effectively he has got
somewhere along the line to exercise discretion.
No country allows you to acquire citizenship just so.
For you to become a citizen there are certain specific
rules which are laid down. It is only right that a coun-
try should be able by now to regulate how any person
can acquire citizenship. You will have to entrust a
responsible minister of government with the author-
ity to regulate the means of becoming a citizen.

I can give the assurance that the Billwill be ad-
ministered honestly and fairly in the interest of
Barbados and also bearing in mind what is the best
interest of those who think that under the constitu-
tion they have a right to be registered. They need
have no fear that their applications will notbe fairly
and honestly considered.

I commend this Bill to the Senate as a stepping
stone on the road on which for the first time we can
have a sense of pride in our Independence. (Cheers).

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: Mr. President, The
honourable senator who has just sat down has said
that for the first time we will have Barbadian citi-
zenship, a fact of which we should all be proud.
I would like to feel a glow of pride that for the first
time in our history we have a law to win such citi-
zenship, and giving such citizens something of which
all Barbadians can be proud by adhering to certain
fundamentals in which we do not go down the hill or
down the slippery slope of following places like Guy-
ana. I do not know why the Attorney General gave the
instance of Guyana. I do not know why Barbados
should take an example from Guyana. If there is one
place about which I am alarmed that the Government
of Barbados should watch so closely and take an
example from is Guyana. Why Guyana? What are we
afraid of?

Now, sir, I am not a lawyer. I will not dare to
enter the ring with any of these distinguished gentle-
men, but cockroaches, if they find themselves among
fowls, and they have any sense can fight their way
out. The fowls do not get all.

Apart from the legal sense, apart from the con-
stitutional aspect of this matter, I and my colleague













are wohderingwhat is the necessity for it at all.
If he had just said that this is a standard provision
we would have sat back and said okay; but since he
quotes Guyana........

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE F. G. SMITH:
On a point of order. Sections 2 and 3 of the Consti-
tution deals with the right to be registered as a
Citizen of Barbados. All that I am saying is that this
proviso obtains in the Guyana Constitution.



SENATOR R. G. MAPP: If it is in the constitution
and is to go into the Bill I am equally opposed to it
in the Bill and the constitution. This question of Nat-
ional Interest and Public Policy is a very wide phrase
The Attorney General has said that he cannot define
these terms. You have to leave them alone and hope
that when the opportunity arises the minister or
member of Government carrying out the law will act
in the interest of national security or public policy
and will use a sense of liberalityand will not in any
way carry out a policy of vindictive persecution alien
to the practice of democracy. This is what the Attor-
ney General has to understand.


Since the constitution has been agreed to our
fears about these matters have been strenghtened
by what is happening every day. People are being
banned from various islands which have attained
Independence and the shadows are lengthening so
much that we cannot see daylight in respect of
things in the near future. It is happening even in
the Universities. Governments of this area, because
of the money they put into UWI, are trying not only
to punish people whom they fear but trying to re-
strict academic freedom as well.



SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P. M. GREAVES:
On a point of order. That has nothing to do with this
Bill.

HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: I do think that
Senator Mapp was going too far.

SENATOR R.G. MAPP: I realise that the Minis-
ter of Home Affairs is afraid of what I am going to
say. He has done something in taking away work
permits from university professors. The Attorney-
General toldus that we are not making these laws for
this government alone but for the future government.
That is not the problem at all. Even if future govern-
ments want to change it they will have to get the re-
quisite majority according to the constitution.You need
have no fear about this government, for the reason
that you can see how strong public opinion is. There
are sayings of what certain people would like to do
and it may happen in any government. We can just
point to the signs and portents of the times.

Citizenship can be taken away on the grounds
of national security and public policy. That is a
.vast umbrella. Members opposite say that my fears


are unfounded. That is their opinion. How can our
fears not be justified when we see what is spread-
ing from island to island? A Barbadian student is
banned from Dominica in the interest of national
security and public policy. In Trinidad another man
is banned.

Mypoint is that whenwe getthis phrase anything
can happen in the future, and we do not like it. The At-
torney General says that that is the only way in which
you can phrase it. Let us be careful that in agree-
ing to this kind of thingwe arenot agreeing to some-
thing which will allow an extremist to look for
scapegoats, and that we are not agreeing to something
which we do not know when it will stop.

The Attorney General has attempted to tell us
that this section is forced upon us, or is made nec-
essary by the constitution. I do not want to differ
from him and I do not necessarily go along with
him. I have been told by certain lawyers that this
is not constitutional. A test will go before the court.
With all due respect to the learned professors and
lawyers I still think that some High Court judge might
find that they were wrong and we were right. We will
adhere to the opinion of certain members of the
Select Committee who said that in their opinion this
is unconstitutional. We agree to the general princi-
ple of the Bill, but we are opposed to this section.

SENATOR F.L. WALCOTT: Mr. President, --
Senator Mapp has heard my view with respect to
lawyers. It has been said that if the lawyers; on this
side say that this is constitutional, pass it. The Courts
are there. Courts make good decisions and Courts
make bad decisions too; but we have grown so accus-
tomed to law and order that people believe that it is
an affront to criticise a judge when he makes a bad
decision.

We do not have to wait for courts to decide these
things. Courts are made up of human beings who live
in the society they belong to. If a judge has certain
leanings one way he leans that way. We have had
High Court judges making decisions. We have had
disturbances in which everyone said that the deci-
sions given were harsh.



Senator Mapp is acting as if we werepassing an
emergency law today. This is a constitutional matter
dealing with citizenship. He was a Minister in this
island when an emergency Bill was passed making
house arrest possible. What was the reason forpass-
ing that Bill at the time?

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: May be my memory is
at fault. To what law is the senator referring?


SENATOR F. L. WALCOTT: A Bill was passed
making it possible that if anything happenedyou could
be put under house arrest not necessarily going to
prison. It was not an emergency. There is nothing in
this Bill which seeks to deprive person of his free-
dom. Of course the Senator's party was giving the


_ ___ __












public the impression even before Independence that
when Independence came the Government would de-
prive people of their freedom.

SENATOR N. A. BARROW: The senator must
know that that statement is not true.

SENATOR F. L. WALCOTT : It iswellknown
publicly that the Labour Party before and after In-
pendence went about making broad statements. Sen-
ator Mapp himself talked today about signs of the
times and about the Georgetown University. He talked
about work permits being taken away at the UWI.
The Senator and his party has thrown out the feel-
ing in Barbados that Independence would be a threat
to people's freedom, that after Independence the
question of elections would be a memory.

I do not know why, in a Bill dealing with citizen-
ship, the senator should feel that a clause dealing with
national security should be looked on with fear and
trembling Is it not a fact that a country's national
security may become an important matter from time
to time?

When you became independent your outlook must
change. An independent country does not have the met-
ropolitan defence to lean on. It has to look after its
own national security safeguards. There are insid-
ious methods by which your national security can
be attacked, and the UWI nor any other university
is not immune from this sort of behaviour. They
have more time to hatch these things. You have more
opportunity in a university because of the academ-
ic freedom that is allowed.

The academic freedom of the UWI is not under
fire; but no university professor has the rightto ask
for a freedom greater than that of any person. If he
is going against law and order and is a threat to the
community and his freedom is taken away he is no
different from any other individual.

I repeat that no emergency Bill is being passed
to deprive a person of citizenship rights. This Bill
is one which you have to pass anyhow because its
passing by the Legislature is entrenched in the Con-
stitution.

I am not in a position to say that it is unconsti-
tutional. Sometimes lawyers themselves are not al-
ways clear. If some lawyers feel that it is unconsti-
tutional there is nothing to prevent them from taking
the right line of action.I do not think that speeches
should be made to give the impression that we are
passing something which places a citizen in jeopardy
where his citizenship rights are concerned.



SENATOR N. A. BARROW: Mr. President, -My
colleague has said all that would be normally nec-
essary; but after listening to the last senator there
are a few points' which one should make for the re-
cord. It is time that people stop talking about the
Labour Party and saying that-


HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: I trust that the
senator will not stray from the subject before the
Senate.

SENATOR N. A. BARROW: Under national
security and public policy many governments have
done many things. We have maintained that there
should be protection for the citizens of this island.
The point is that citizens do not need work permits.
What my colleague was doing was pointing out that in
the same way that under the guise of national secur-
ity people can be deprived of work permits, in cases
where they are not citizens, and we have the case of
Mr. Batchelor, so when people applied to be regis-
tered as citizens the minister may feel inclined to
use powers of that sort.

We have no basic disagreement with the Bill but
we do not like this section. The Attorney General is
a lawyer. There are also lawyers in our party. I res-
pect them all even though some may be more compe-
tent than others. Until this matter is decided before
a court, however, I prefer to err with the opinion of
those in whom I have the most confidence.

There have been developments in the Carib-
bean under the guise of national security. We do not
like what is happening in St. Kitts. Mr. Clarke married
a Dominican and cannot go backto Dominica. A reput-
able journalist is not allowed a renewal of his work
permit in Barbados, and the minister refuses to give
an explanation. We do not understand the interpreta-
tion of national security and public policy by govern-
ments who may like to run down their opponents and
when possible imprison them.

If this section is constitutional we hope that what -
ever minister has to administer this law will use
good sense and a sense of fair play and not be vindic-
tive and not apply the type of reasoning that was ap-
plied in the case of Mr. Batchelor. We cannot support
the section as long as our lawyers say that it is uncon-
stitutional.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P. M. GREAVES:
Mr. President I would like to enlighten Senator
Mapp that the minister concerned is infactunable to
make an order to deprive anyone of citizenship who
derives his citizenship from the constitution. This
Bill does not permit it nor does the constitution. The
only way such persons can lose it is by renunciation.


SENATOR R. G. MAPP: On a point of order I
did not hear what the minister said about how a person
can lose citizenship.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P. M. GREAVES:
I do not know if you did not hear or did not understand.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: Will he explain himself
properly?

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P. M. GREAVES:
For the benefit of the other senators I will repeat that
the only way in which a person who is a citizen by












birth or whose father is acitizenis by renunication.
This Bill makes provision for renunciation of citi-
zenship by persons who are allowed to become citi-
zens such as Commonwealth Citizens or who acquire
citizenship by registration or who come under Clause
2 (3) of thd constitution. These persons can be de-
prived of citizenship.

When the Bill was drafted a study was made of
other citizenship Bills in other Commonwealth Inde-
pendent countries. Particular stress was laid on Guy-
ana. Senator Mapp does not know that similar provi-
sions are also included in the citizenship Acts of
Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago.

The senator is quite right when he talks about
persons banned from the area. There were people
in the middle 1950's who were banned from the area
before this government came into power. As long as
I have the responsibility for immigration I realise that
I have certain responsibilities to the people of Bar-
bados and I want to state that it would not be in my policy
to close the stable after the horse is out. My policy
would be to see that the door is closed with the horse
inside.


As regards to the constitutionality of certain sec-
tions I would like to repeat that the Bill was submit-
ted for its scrutiny to those organizations that will
administer it. I am referring to the Bar Association and
the Law Society. We have on file the reports submit-
ted by those associations and nowhere is any comment
made that any of the provisions of this Bill are uncon-
stitutional

The question that the Bill be read a second time
was put and agreed to.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable P.M.
Greaves, seconded by Senator the Honourable F.G.
Smith the Senate went into committee on the Bill,
Senator Asquith Phillips in the chair.

Clauses 1 to 3 were called andagreedto without
debate.

Clause 4 was called.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: I move that Sub-Section
3 of Clause 4 be deleted.

THE CHAIRMAN: Have you given notice inwrit-
ing to the clerk in accordance with standing Order
30(6)?
The Clerk indicated that he had not receivedno-
tice in writing of the motion.

THE CHAIRMAN: I rule that Senator Mapp is out
of order.

The question that Clause 4 stand part of the Bill
was put and agreed to.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: I ask for a division.


THE CHAIRMAN: We have already come to a de-
cision on Clause 4.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: What is the decision?

THE CHAIRMAN: That the ayes have it.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: I said nd, andI want my
vote registered.

THE CHAIRMAN: Please take your seat.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: I amaddressingyouand
no one but you.

THE CHAIRMAN: My ruling'is that Clause 5 is
now before this Chamber.

The question that Clause 5 be agreed to was put
and resolved in the affirmative on a division as
follows: -

AYES: Senator the Honourable H. A. VAUGHAN,
Senator the Honourable F. G. SMITH, Senator the Hon-
ourable P.M. GREAVES, Senator the Honourable
L. E. SANDIFORD, Senators H. Odessa GITTENS,

NOES: Senators R. G. MAPP and N.A. BARROW- 2
Senator H.F. ALKINS was absent.

Clauses 6 to 19were called and passed without debate.

The Schedules were called.

Senator the Honourable P.M. Greaves moved that
the Schedules stand part of the Bill.

Senator the Honourable F.G. Smith seconded the
motion.

The question that the Schedules stand partof the
Bill was put and agreed to.

The question that the passing of the Bill be re-
ported to the Senate was put and agreed to.

His Honour the President resumed the Chair and
the passing of the Bill in Committee was reported
accordingly.

SENATOR R.G. MAPP: Mr. President,- When
this Bill was in committee and Clause 4 was being
considered I acted in accordance with Order 41 (1)
which says:-



"At the conclusion of a debate upon any question
the President or Chairman shall put that question
for the decision of the Senate and shall collect the
voices of the Ayes and of the Noes, after which no
further debate may take place upon that question."












SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P.M. GREAVES:
Mr. President, I would like to know if the Senator
is discussing or debating the merits of this Bill
which has already passed the third reading. As far
as I am aware no debate can take place on the merits
of the Bill after it has passed its second reading,
and this Bill has already passed its third reading.

HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: It has not yet
passed its third reading. You are now making the
motion.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P.M. GREAVES:
It has already passed its second reading. Standing
Order 55 states quite clearly that on the question
being proposed that the Bill be read a third time no
amendments can be proposed for debate.

HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: I will have to
put the question that the Bill be now read a third time.
If Senator Mapp does not agree with that he has the
right to ask for a division.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable P.M.
Greaves seconded by Senator the Honourable F.G.
Smith, the Bill was read a third time and passed on
the following division:

AYES: Senator the Honourable H. A. VAUGHAN,
Senator the Honourable F.G. SMITH, Senator the Hon-
ourable P.M. GREAVES, Senator the Honourable L.E.
SANDIFORD, Senators H. Odessa GITTENS, C. L.

BILL TO AMEND THE MOTOR VEHICLES AND
ROAD TRAFFIC ACT, 1937

The President called the fifth Order -- A Bill
to amend the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act,
1937.

SENATOR THE HON. H.A. VAUGHAN: Mr.
President, This Bill is necessary because of the
increasingly inconvenient situation in the register-
ing of motor vehicles. Under the existing law vehic -
les are still registered parochially, and the distance
between the letter and the first figure onthe number
plate is laid down by.statute.

Towards the end of July it was brought to the
attention of the Government that in the parish of
St. Michael the number of registered vehicles had
reached 9,989, and one can see that there was the
possibility that in the not distant future they might
go into 10,000 in which case the provision in the Act
would have gone awry.


This Bill seeks to devise a new system of num-
bering and if senators will turn to Clause 2 they
will see on Page 2 that a proviso is to be added to
the second Schedule of the Motor Vehicles and Road
Traffic Act. The effect would be that as soon as we
have reached the number 9,999 a new series of num-
bers would be inaugurated. It would run from numbers
1 to 999 and have a letter of the alphabet prefixed to
the number, beginning with the letter A.

The provision will be a reasonable one for the
numbering of motor vehicles in St. Michael for a long
time. The same principle applies to any other parish;
but my information is that there is none yet in the
9,000 mark in any other parish.

There is another provision in Clause 2 (b). The
Government has been informed that this size of plate
is now going out of vogue in England. There are cases
here in which you can see that the numbers have been
painted on and they do not look elegant, This was
disclosed by a recent campaign by the Police. We
may adopt an entirely new system as from a date to
be prescribed.

Those, sir, are the two main provisions of the
Bill, and I move that it be read a second time.

Senator the Hon. F.G.Smith seconded the motion.

SENATOR N.A. BARROW: Mr. President, -- The
Hon. Minister of State said something about which I am
not quite sure. He said something about a recent cam -
paign by the Police against motorists who were paint-
ing the licence numbers on their cars. It seems to me
that as long as the licence number is clearly visible
it would present no difficulty to the Police in a case
where detection is necessary, and I think that such a
campaign is really a waste of time.


SENATOR D, A. WILES: Mr. President,-- I
appreciate that this Bill only seeks to amend the sec-
ond Schedule of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic
Act. The principle of the original Act, however, is to
regulate the use of the road by vehicles of all types
thereby protecting the welfare of other users of the
road and the community in general.

I am wondering if the Hon. Minister of State could
tell us whether there is provision in the existing leg-
islation which would assist in protecting the commun-
ity from the acrid smoke emitted from certain die-
sel motor vehicles which use the road and which often
cause great public discomfort.

SENATOR THE HON. F.G. SMITH: Mr. Presi-
dent, -- Before the Minister of State replies on that
particular aspect, I would like to explain to Senator
Barrow that the Police are there to maintain law and
order. It is not for anyone to decide that it is a waste
of time to see that the law is complied with as laid
down in Section (1) 9 of the Motor Vehicles and Road
Traffic Act which says that..


17











"Two plates, each bearing a mark indicating the
registered number of the motor vehicle and the
parish in which the motor vehicle is registered
shall be rigidly fixed, one in a conspicuous posi-
tion at the rear of the motor vehicle, and each
in an upright position so that every letter and
figure on the plate is upright and easily distin-
guishable, in the case of the front plate from a
position: fronting the motor vehicle, and, in the
case of the rear plate from behind the motor
vehicle."
The second Schedule sets out the distance be-,
tween the numbers. I think that the senator is being
irresponsible when he accuses the Police of wast-
ing time when all that they are doing is enabling the
laws of Barbados to be carried out.

You must be careful of what you saying a respon-
sible Chamber like this. There are too many accidents
on our roads, and no one in a responsible position
should give motorists the impression that they can
stick anything on their cars, and that the Police are
wasting the taxpayer's money.

SENATOR THE HON. H. A. VAUGHAN: I would
like to add to what has just been said. The Police
are not waging a campaign. They have released for
general information the fact that the numbers of
motor vehicles painted on bonnets does not comply
with the law.

With respect to the point made by Senator Wiles
I am afraid that there is nolegal provision by means
of which these acrid fumes can be prevented. I have
been personally informed by people who know about
motor vehicles thatthe difficulty with the diesel
burning vehicles is that they have not been properly
adjusted. If they are, a preliminary whiff of smoke
is all that is forthcoming. I have information that
action is being taken in certain quarters to seethat
the necessary adjustments are made as soon as
possible.

SENATOR D.A.WILES: I thank the Hon. member.

The question that the Bill be read a second time
was put to the Senate and agreed to.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H.A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable F.G.
Smith, the Senate went into Committee on the Bill,
Senator C. Asquith Phillips in the Chair.

Clauses 1 and 2 of the Bill were called and passed
without debate.

The question that the passing of the Bill be re-
ported to the Senate was put and agreed to.

His Honour the President resumed the Chair and
the passing of the Bill in Committee was reported
accordingly.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H. A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable P. M.
Greaves, the Bill was read a third time and passed.


PRIVATE MEMBERS BUSINESS
BILL TO INCORPORATE THE BARBADOS FAMILY
PLANNING ASSOCIATION

The President called the sixth Order -- A Bill
to incorporate the Barbados Family Planning Asso-
ciation.

SENATOR R.G. MAPP: Mr. President, -- Ithink
that this Bill will meet with the approval of all mem-
bers of the Senate. Family planning in Barbados has
been fostered by Government prior to 1961 and since.
Without the work of this association the social and
economic situation facing this island would be far
worse than it is. We would have to provide for many
more people than we have to provide for today.

Since this body started the birth rate has dropped
and while one would not say that that is due solely to
the work of the association, its activities must be
responsible to some extent. The association has made
a contribution to the welfare of the community.

I beg to move that the Bill be read a second time.

Senator N. A. Barrow seconded the motion.



The question that the Bill be read a second time
was put and agreed to.



SENATOR R.G. MAPP: Mr. President, -- In
accordance with Rule 75 the Bill will have to be sent
to A Select Committee of the Senate. With your
permission I would like to move that the following
be appointed to the Committee: The Attorney General,
Senator Blackman, and Senator Caddie.



SENATOR THE HON. P.M. GREAVES: Mr.
President, -- Rule 61 says that the Select Committee
should be known as a Special Select Committee and
shall be appointed by order of the Senate and shall
consist of such senators as may be nominated by
the Committee of Selection. The Committee of Selec-
tion of the Senate consists of the President, Senator
Caddie, Senator Johnson, Senator Mapp, and Senator
Blanchette. I think that this Committee will have to
nominate the Special Select Committee.


HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: It has been the
custom of the Senate and of the Other Place that a
Select Committee is appointed on the motion of a
member and by the vote of the majority of members.
I think that it would be extremely cumbersome to
refer this back to the Committee of Selection. Order
75 says that after the Bill has been read asecondtime
it shall stand I referred to a Special Select Committee
to be appointed by the Senate.


Senator Mapp, will you proceed.


_Ij__ ~








196


SENATOR THE HON. H.A. VAUGHAN: Mr.
President, -- It may be cumbersome but as the
relevant rule reads it appears to me that we will
have to follow the procedure suggested by Senator
Greaves Rule 75 speaks about referring the Bill to
a Select Committee, but let us turn to Rule 61 which
says that the Select Committee shall be appointed by
order of the Senate and shall consist of such senators
as may be nominated by the Committee of Selection.

It is a question of whether a majority of these
members are present to make the nomination. It
seems to me unnecessarily cumbersome, but for the
sake of acting in accordance with the rule the Com-
mittee of Selection will have to meet as such a Com-
mittee and nominate this special Select Committee,
and report to the Senate.


Therefore, sir, I move that the Bill be referred
to the Committee of Selection for the appointment of
a Select Committee to go into this Bill and report
back to the Senate.

Senator the Hon. F.G. Smith secondedthe motion.

The question was put to the Senate and agreed to.





ADJOURNMENT

On the motion of Senator the Hon. H. A. Vaughan

ate adjourned at 5.25 p.m.

APPOINTMENT TO COMMITTEE OF SELECTION

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President, Before the business of the meeting
begins I think it best to draw to the attention of the
Chamber that the number of places on the Committee
of Selection as authorised under Standing Order 60
(b) is not filled. According to the Order there should
be the President of the Chamber and four other Sena-
tors on that committee. At present there are only
three senators along with the President. Ibegto pro-
pose Senator Carew to be a member of the Co mmittee
of Selection.

Senator the Hon. L. E. Sandiford seconded, the
motion.

The question was put to.the Senate and agreed to.

RESOLUTION TO FIX RATE OF INTEREST
ON LOAN BY BARBADOS DEVEL-
OPMENT BOARD

The President called the first Order A Resolu-
tion to fix the rate of interest to be paid by the Bar-
bados Development Board on aloan.o f $500,000 from
Barclays Bank D.C.O. at one half of one percent be-
low the prime commercial rate.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President, In September last year this Cham-
ber approved a Resolution authorising the Govern-
ment to guarantee the repayment of a capital sum
of $1/2 million at certain rates of interest, a loan
which was to be made by the Barbados Development


DEBATES


- -- ----











Board from Barclays Bank D.C.O. for the purpose
of meeting its obligations and discharging its func-
tions according to the Act under which it operates.

The Resolution to which I refer stated that the
rate of interest was to be the prime commercial
rate of interest of Government for a period of ten
years. That was not the explicit wording of the agree -
ment between Barclays Bank and the Government,
and this Resolution which we now have before us
seeks to amend that former Resolution so as to
bring the understanding more in conformity withwhat
the agreement was, and that is that the rate of in-
terest should be half of one percent below the prime
commercial rate existing at the time of the making
of the loan.

I suppose that persons who are aufaitwith com-
mercial matters will appreciate the reason of one
world of thought that it would have been adequate if
the Resolution read the prime rate of interest since
the prime interest of Government is always 1/2%
below that of the prime commercial rate. But an
interpretation of that wouldhave lent itself to the
suggestion that Barclays Bank had agreed to lend
at 6 1/2% instead of 1/2% below the prime commer-
cial rate which happens to be 7o%.

This is a formal rectification. A similar situa-
tion /arises in a somewhat intensified form in con-
neotion with the next Resolution on the Order Paper
I will not anticipate that.

I move, sir that the Resolution be concurred in.

HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: Before the
motion is seconded, I want to draw to the attention
of the Clerk that while Order No. 1 deals with
$500,000 and No. 2 $160,000, the Resolutions Cir-
culated to me are identical. I would like an explan-
ation.

The Clerk said that there seemed to have been
a mix up.

SENATOR F. L. WALCOTT: I have two Resolu-
tions both of which are for $160,000.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
No one regrets this contretemps more that I do. I
feel quite sure that our Clerk is genuinely sorry that
you, sir, and other members of the Senate should
have been put to any inconvenience or misunderstand-
ing as the result of not havingbeen sent correct cop-
ies of each of these Resolutions.

A mistake has been made, but I think I can hon-
estly say that it was not deliberate, but the sort of
mistake, regrettable as it is, which may happen in a
hurry in sending out documents.

Some time ago members complained of the late
receipt of papers, and I gave the assurance that I
would see that papers for Thursday meetings reached
members by the proceeding Saturday and certainly
'hot later than the proceeding Monday. It may be that in
Trying to conform with this new procedure there has


been in the office from which these documents are
sent out this unfortunate mistake. Unless, you, and
others members of the Senate feel very strongly about
this matter, I would seriously urge that this Reso-
lution be not deferred but that we continue with it.
After all, members are apprised of the scope of the
Resolution which does not differ except on one un-
important respect from the Resolution a copy of
which is in the hands of members. There is this too
that it is the first occasion that it can be said that
there was any such unfortunate occurence during the
term of office of the present Clerk.

With respect to the sending out of papers
close to the Thursday of a meeting the Clerk was
only following the procedure which was adopted be -
fore. It was not as though he was for the first occas -
ion guilty of yet another departure from strict
procedure and was in any way flouting the expressed
wishes of the Chamber and was guilty of such gross
negligence as would merit censure.

The matter dealt with in the Resolution
of urgency and I should not like the proceedings to be
held up in any way. Again I appeal to members to
overlook this error and I fell sure that the matter
having been so clearly and forciably drawn to the
notice of tha Clerk, that there will be little if any
probability of a recurrence of a similar nature.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE F. G, SMITH:
Mr. President, I do not see thatthe Clerkis in any
way to blame. He is not expected to read every one
of these Resolutions before they are sent out. He is
doing aparttime job. If he gets a copy like this and
he sees $500,000 he is entitled to assume that it is cor-
rect. The mistake must have happened at the print-
ing office.

HIS HONOUR THE PRESIDENT: I would like to
say in reply that as far as Iam concerned this Senate
has no Resolution before in dealing with a sum of
$500,000. Although the Resolution has on the outside
$500,000, the body of the Resolution which is what
we have to consider, deals with $160,000, If the Min-
ister of State will ask permission of the Senate to
proceed with this Resolution and leave is granted I
will have no objection .

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
I now formally ask for leave to proceed with this
Resolution.

Senator S. V. Ashby seconded the motion.

The question was put to the Senate and agreed to.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A, VAUGHAN:
I think that members are already seized of the pur-
pose of the Resolution and I move that it be concurred
in.

Senator S. V. Ashby seconded the motion.


The question was put to the Senate and agreed to.











RESOLUTION TO FIX RATE OF INTEREST'
ON LOAN OF $160,000 BY DEVEL-
OPMENT BOARD

The President called the second Order-A Reso-
lution to fix the rate of interest to be paid by the
Barbados Development Board on a loan of $160,000
from Barclays Bank D.C.O. at one half of one per
cent below the prime commercial rate.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President the same reasons which I gave when
introducing the last Resolution applied to this with
this difference. In the case of the Resolution concurred
in by this Chamber some time ago and which it is
now proposed to replace by the present Resolution,
it was definitely stated that the rate of interest would
be 6 1/2%. That is making a departure from the pre-
cise wording of the agreement. Here again Barclays
Bank has asked that the precise wording of the
agreement be adhered to, I think quite rightly, and
this Resolution sets out that in this case the loan
should bear an interest of one half of 1% below the
prime commercial rate.

I move, sir that the Resolution be concurred.

Senator S. V. Ashby seconded the motion.

The question was put to the Senate and agreed to.

RESOLUTION TO AMEND NOTE TO CAPITAL
ESTIMATES HEAD 103, ITEM 3

The President called the third Order-A Resolu-
tion to amend the note to Capital Estimates Head 103,
Item 3 Medical Staff Quarters in the ApprovedEs -
timates 1967-68.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President, in the Development Plan provi-
sion was made for the acquisition of eighteen quarters
for medical staff of the hospital over the period 1965
to 1968. To date six such quarters have been con-
structed at Enmore at a cost of about $190,000. The
question that arose was where the other twelve
quarters should be put, how they should be erected
etc.,

The opportunity came along to acquire an area of
land with certain quarters already erected. The area
is Lady Meade Gardens which once belonged to the
late A. E. Taylor. It has one hundred eighty two
thousand square feet of land and has eleven houses
on it. There is room on which we can erect twelve
other houses and which will enable us to complete
a number of quarters provision for which is made in
the Development Plan.


Most of the houses are in good condition. Two
are quite fair and three are in no need of repairs.
The object of the Resolution is to amend the appro-
piate note in the Capital Estimates so that we can
acquire these properties for the purpose which I
have just mentioned.


I move, sir, that the Resolution be concurred in.

Senator the Honourable P. M. Greaves seconded
the motion.

SENATOR DOCTOR R. B. CADDLE: Mr. Presi-
dent, I want to make a few comments. It does ap-
pear to me that there is a very strong need for the
Government to review its policy on providing accomo -
dation for medical personnel. I say so in view of the
fact that when one looks at the developed countries
of the world, some more prosperous than ourselves
and see what they offer one has to wonder if this
Government is not being taken advantage of when we
are asked to provide these excessive amounts of
money for quarters for medical personnel.

I know that not long ago I was a medical student.
I was also an intern. In England for example when
you are doingyourinternshipyou have to share com-
mon quarters. You are provided with a room, a li-
brary and a common eating room. On the other hand
in Barbados everyone has to be provided with a house.
In the U.S. the same thing exists and in Canada. In
most big countries with which I am acquainted you
find this existing as standard practice.

It has been reported that the Government will
provide quarters for medical students. You can un-
derstand what will happen when students come to our
hospital which is to be a teaching hospital and have
to be providedwith flats. Medical students are the
responsibility of the Medical College or University
to which they go. In this case it is a hospital. No
medical college in the world goes so far as to pro-
vide students with flats or houses for that matter.
If you do not accept the hostels provided by the hos-
pital you have to make provision for your own ac-
commodation. One wonders how far this governemnt
will go.

I feel very strongly on it and I feel the Govern-
ment is being taken for a ride. I feelthatthe Govern-
ment should reconsider its policy of providing
accommodation. When one considers the quality and
quantity of the accommodation provided for medical
personnel one cannot but regret that in spite of it
people cannot get satisfaction from the operation of
the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. It does not give the
public that satisfaction which justifies this expendi-
ture.

I am not saying that the Government should not
give some sort of accommodation to medical person-
nel. I am aware of the fact that Senior Medical per-
sonnel may have some difficulty in getting adequate
accommodation; but when you come to interns who are
going to come and go and to medical students I think
that there is a strong need for a review of policy
bearing what takes place in far more advanced coun-
tries of the world.

SENATOR R. G. MAPP: Mr. President, -Ithink
that I am correct in saying that the amount in the Es -
timates under this Head-Head 103 was $200,000. I
wonder if the Minister could tell us if it is proposed











that the $200.000 will cover the cost of this one hun-
dred eighty two thousand square feet of land and the
buildings thereon or whether we will be presented
with a Resolution later on for expensive repairs to
these buildings.

I cannot say that I know all the buildings in this
particular compound. I know some however and while
bearing in mind what the last member had said, I
still cannot see that you can ask people to live in
them without putting them in good repair. If they are
for human habitation you have to make them habit-
able. The Government should tell us whether this
amount will cover everything that is to be done;
whether the buildings are included in this figure and
no more money spent on them or if more money will
be spent. Let us know if the buildings are in good
order and how good they are.

There is a lot in what Senator Caddle has said
and he has first hand knowledge of what he is talking
about. I do not know if this accommodation is for med-
ical students, but Senator Caddle talked a lot about
medical students. If medical students are to be pro -
vided with such accommodation you can imagine what
the accommodation for medical staff would be like.

This point is relevant because it is a fact that
the Government of Barbados does go far in the
opinion of some people it goes too far in the pro-
vision of accommodation especially for officers on
contract. I know an example of a contracting officer
who is not a Barbadian and who was surprised of the
fact that he did not have to pay rent. On the other hand
in Jamaica and wherever he went money was taken
out of his salary for rent.

If the Government is surprised this is first-hand
information that I am giving them now. The quarters
are in the Garrison. It strengthens what Senator
Caddie has said. There is no doubt that we have to
compete for medical staff and for technical officers,
but I do not see why we should go further than other
governments in the area.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE P. M. GREAVES:
I would like to reply to a few points that have been
raised. The question of providing accommodation for
medical personnel falls within my responsibility. I
want to say that it is not true that an officer on con-
tract is provided with accommodation for which no
rent is paid. It is part of the contract that a percent-
age of his salary goes towards rent. However, I will
say this: that it is humanly possible that such a per-
son exists as was referred to by Senator Mapp and I
hope that he will apprise the Government of the fact
so that the due revenue can be collected.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE F. G. SMITH:
Mr. President, I do not see why anyone should
criticise this Government for providing accommoda-
tion for medical staff. We do not do it out of generos-
ity; but it is something that we have inherited.

I think that it is well known that in Barbados,
Trinidad and Jamaica there are quarters for officers
on contract.
I


When it is considered that salaries in Barbados
are geared to include the benefits which the officer
gets, it will be realized that officers in Barbados are
paid less than those in Jamaica. Atthe Kingstonhos-
pital in Jamaica there are no quarters; but the sal-
aries of medical offers are much higher than those
in Barbados.

It is clear that in spite of the very generous
treatment that we give in relation to quarters we
still cannot get as many doctors as we would like to
have at the hospital. It is true that conditions at some
of the quarters are better than those at others; but
the Government is taking steps to see that there is
some uniformity.

The question with regard to medical students is
entirely different. The point is that for the first time
the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is becoming one of the
centres of teaching medicine for the University of the
West Indies. You will get students from all over the
Carbbean and even from Ghana coming to Barbados
to do their internship at this institution. It would not
be fair to ask these persons to come and look for
quarters of their own in this island.

The question is whether in due course as the
scheme gets going you can build a hostel to house
these students. At this moment I think that senators
will agree that since we have been thought of so
highly that our hospital will become part and parcel
of the teaching of medicine at the UWI. we should
provide some sort of accommodation for students,

As regards the state of the buildings which the
Government is attempting to acquire, I think that the
question asked by SenatorMapp can be answered by
the Minister who introduced the Resolution. In my
view it is an excellent opportunity to acquire these
buildings which are near to the hospital rather than
having to build entirely new quarters.

SENATOR F. L. WALCOTT: Mr. President, -I
want to. say that this question of quarters is a hang
over from the past. Governments have been extending
these privileges to technical staff on the basis that
such staff is short throughout the world.

I agree with the Attorney General that we must
examine the circumstances of the whole picture. I am
not saying that you should not provide quarters on
the same basis or in the same manner as before
there was the University of the West Indies. The
people of Barbados are contributing to ths UWI.
Before that you had to rely on universities in the
U.K., the U.S. and Canada. You had to contribute
on that basis. You did not find that doctors would
come from Britain, the U.S. and Canada where
there are large institutions and accept lower stand-
dards in Barbado~s.
Mr. President, it is a fact that in Barbados we
still have the colonial slave mentality which it takes
a long time to wipe out. Even local people set up them-
selves as new colonialists. I agree thatyou should ex-
amine thewhole questionof quarters, not only on the
basis that if a man comes from Ghana or anywhere else











be should be given quarters, but on the basis of what
quarters you will give.

I say. that because there is the danger of setting
up a privileged class by providing them with quarters
out of all relationship to anything that you are pro-
viding for your own people. It is not good enough to
ask certain people to live in certain conditions and at
the same time create wide differences where others
are concerned.

I want to make the point that there are the old
hospital buildings. Some time or other somebody
must advise the Government as to the best use that
can be made of those buildings. I do not favour the
advice of buying old buildings and finding after five
years that they are unsuitable. There is the same old
feeling that some old mansion which was suitable for
the manager of a plantation is now suitable for a
school. I think that is wrong. This Government and
the past Government has made such mistakes. They
bought an old house in Fontabelle to house the La-
bour Department. The idea is not sound. The Govern-
ment has to look forward towards the next hundred
years.

To come back to the Old Hospital, the Old Pay-
ward Building is no longer suitable for this age. The
whole area should be designed afresh. In the case
before the Senate; if you are buying 182 thousand
square feet, of land it is alright; but I am suspicious
about the Government buying old buildings which
will have to be pulled down sooner or later.

I want to say that professional people can be
extremely unreasonable. They do not relate what
they ask for to what the community can provide. In
small communities all over the world governments
have been forced by professional people to follow
standards that have been set in areas other than their
own. Ordinarily a doctor would pay house rent :'i
.150 a month; but they go into Government quarters
and pay $40 or $50 a month. T repeat that I am ~rot
saying that these officers should not be given quar-
ters; Government should take a sane approach to the
matter. I am no real estate agent but I do not believe
in the buying of old buildings that you will have to tear
down. It: does not pay the Government to buy old
buildings and then have to tear them down.

SENATOR H. F. ALKINS: Mr. President, -Alot
of useful points have been made by previous speakers.
I am rising to reinforce one point, namely that it is
uneconomic to buy old buildings and adjust them
for purposes which may arise. I think a lot would
depend on the price paid. If the price justifies it, it
may be a sound proposition. I do not know that the
question of price is still being negotiated. But I won-
der if the minister is free to tell us what price will
be paid for the land and buildings. If we knew that we
could perhaps more competently assess the matter
before us.

I think that the time has come for the Govern-
ment to make a more intensified use of the land. It
may be better to build a block of two or three bed-
room houses rather than to buy isolated houses all of


which are old and will be subjected to the regula-
tions passed by us.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
There is a good deal which has been said by the pre-
vious speakers, and with which at first blush any
person would agree. I want to draw the attention of
the Senate-to one or two aspects of this question which
in their zeal to offer advice to the Government, well
meant no doubt, and in their desire to uphold the
stability of this country they may have possibly over-
looked.

I do not propose to deal with them point by point.
In some instances there will be no need whatever.
I t seems to me that one must consider the great ur-
gency of obtaining and retaining medical staff of a
certain calibre and the consequent necessity of pro-
viding them with quarters of as deceit a nature as
circumstances would permit. It seems to me that
these considerations have arisen from the fact that
in other parts of the world, in Jamica for instance
as Senator Smith has said, such staff canbe induced
to come by being paid fairly high salaries and not
by the.giving of quarters.

There are some other parts of the world in
which such staff is willing to put up with some incon-
vience because their are at great cultural and
scientific centres. They are closer to the heart of
things where their particular profession is con-
cerned We cannot put ourselves on the same level.
We do not have the money to offer the fantastic sal-
aries offered in London, Toronto or even Calcutta.
We cannot offer them the inducement of working at
great cultural or scientific centres. We can only do
it by offering this inducement of quarters. It is of
course possible to go too far in anything; but we just
cannot do any better.

There is a point which was made by Senator
Walcott. He has made reference to the possible im-
pression that some people are being given highly
preferential treatment and graded at a higher level.
This is one of the consequences which was seen to
flow from pursuing this policy; but we cannot help it.
The government is doing nothing but the best thing it
can do in the circumstances.

I was more concerned with Senator Walcott's
comment on the unwisdom of purchasing old build-
ings. There again if you get a fairly modern property
for a particular purpose, well and good; but some-
times if you can get it you have to pay a fantastic
price. A lot depends on what you want the property
for. The Government can only go on the advice of
those who are experts in this matter of valuation,
whom we have reason to believe are impartial and
fair in the advice they give to the Government.

I think that Senator Walcott made some mention
of these buildings at Lady Meade Gardens being
made out of old railway iron. I am not in a position
to say whether it is so or not although I would think
that it is something to be proud about. Perhaps if
modern buildings were reinforced in that way they
would last longer.











In reply to Senator Mapp I would point out that
in the Development Plan $540,000 was inserted to
cover this purchase of quarters. Our estimates are
annual estimates. As I have said the intention was to
construct eighteen buildings of which six have been
constructed out of the $540,000 at a cost of about
$190,000. There is still about $345,000 left to be
spent for the provision of medical staff quarters.

Senator Alkins asked about the price of the pro-
perty. It has been already agreed that the property
should be acquired at a price of $240,000 which the
Government has advised is reasonable for that amount
of land with the buildings on it. I would add that no
question of staff for medical students is involved.

The question that the Resolution be concurred in
was put to the Senate and agreed to.

A BILL RELATING TO EXCHANGE CONTROL

The President called the fourth Order A Bill
relating to exchange control.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President, We have before us a Bill which I
will described as a lawyer's Bill. It is replete with
legal technicalities. On the other hand, it is a Bill
which could be called a business man's Bill because
the provisions are such as would be mosteasily
appreciated by members of this Chamber who have
relations with exchange control authorities.

It is no reflection on the draftsman or the Legal
Department that the Objects and Reasons of the Bill
are so terse. They read: "This Bill relates to ex-
change control and seeks to confer powers and im-
pose duties and restrictions in relation to gold,
currency, payments, securities and debts and the
import, export, transfer and settlement of property."

That is exactly what it proposes to do. I must
say that these exchanged control restrictions were
imposed during the last war under the Imperial
Emergency Defence Act 1939 and were applied to us
by Imperial Legislation. When the Imperial Legisla-
tion was revoked our lqcal legislation still continued.

At one time the West Indies Federation had in
view legislation dealing with this particular subject,
but for some strange reason it was never proclaimed
with the result that we continued to work under the
current legislation. This is not a new measure. Those
of us who want to send money out of this island to the
U.S.A. or any other place not in the sterling area
had to follow the method of seeking permissionto do
so. In this Bill the procedures have been consolidated
following the provisions of similar legislation in the
U.K. and Jamaica.

The Bill is divided into seven parts, but I do not
propose to go through every part. I would draw at-
tention to one or two provisions. In Clause 3 it is
provided that the Minister of Finance shall be the
Exchange Control Authority. Part 2 deals with
dealings in gold and foreign currency and the main


provision, is found in Clause 4. Part 3 deals with
payments and contained in Clause 8 is the important
provision with respect to the making of payments in
the island to persons who reside outside of the sche-
dule territories except with the permission of the Ex-
changed Control Authority.

Part 4 deals with securities and the main pro-
vision is found in Clause 11 which prevents unautho-
rised capital transfers. Part 5 deals with the import
and export of notes and the important Clauses are
Clauses 24, 25, and 26. In Part 6 there are miscel-
laneous provisions dealing with such things as the
duty to collect certain debts and the duty not to delay
the sale or importation of goods. Part 7 contains
supplemental provisions.

This, sir, is one of those very technical meas-
ures and I do not think that members will wish me
to give them a lecture in the law of currency con-
trol or currency practice. I will repeat what I said
earlier that the provisions of this Bill are in keep-
ing with those in the English and Jamaican legisla-
tion.

I move, sir, that the Bill be read second time.

Senator the Honourable F. G. Smith seconded the
motion.

SENATOR H. F. ALKINS: Mr. President, -As
the Minister has said, this is a very complex Bill.
One has to be very knowledgeable in certain fields
to be able to criticise it. However, there are one or
two comments which I will have to make in a general
way.

First of all, the Bill is nothingnew, It is merely
an attempt to consolidate various regulations and
procedures that have been enforced for many years,
and many of which are familiar to all of us,

The comment that I would like to make at this
stage is that the Regulations which must accompany
this Bill are not before us. Unless we know what the
regulations are we cannot follow or appreciate the
impact which the Bill will have generally on econo-
mic development. As Iunderstandit the Bill Is lage-
ly a replica of the U.K. Act. But the only exception
is possibly Section 33 which I do not think is found
in the English Act. Possibly the Jamaica Act.

Section 33 deals with the restriction on the sale
of real property. Again, there is nothing objectionable
or nothing that can be criticised in this particular
Section; but the Section cannot be fully appreciated
unless we know the definition of "Resident." That is
not defined in the Act.


I know that the Minister will refer me to Sec-
tion 45 (2) which says thatthe Authority may give di-
rections declaring that for all or any of the purposes
of this Act a person is to be treated as resident or
not resident in such countries as may be specified
in the directions.











The point Iwouldlike to make is that unless it
is made perfectly clear in the Regulations what a
resident is and unless the machinery under the Act
is such as to permit the smooth processingof appli-
cations under the Act we are likely to do more harm
to the development of this island than good. I feel
it is my duty to point out this danger to the Govern-
ment and ask them to make sure in drafting the
Regulations that difficulties are avoided.

Let us go back to Section 33 (1). It would appear
to me that under that Section a Barbadian cannot sell
or mortgage his land to a Canadian or American, for
instance, unless he gets permission. We have Cana-
dian Banks here who do a tremendous amount of
business in providing capital and mortgage money
in this island; and many of these banks, while they do
business here, are incorporated in North America.
It is essential for these firms to know whether they
will be considered residents or not. If we are not
careful about this the flow of money which is coming
from North America to Barbados may slow down.

We are encouraging tourists to come from North
America all the year round, and a lot of development
money is coming from this source. This is an area
against which we should not create difficulties. Let
us take the example of one of these banks making a
loan to a hotelier. At the present, in fixing the value
of the mortgage and the amount of money he will
advance against the property he is influenced by the
fact that if he had to foreclose his potential buyers
are mainly in North Amlnrica. If an hotelier goes to
him for a loan it would seem to me under this Bill
that unless the position is clarified it may lower the
negotiable value of the property. I say that because
the banker if he comes from North America is re-
duced to a very narrow margin of security unless
he gets permission of the Authority to do this
business.

I am not saying that permission will not be
granted; but take the question of Town and Country
Planning. It is difficult to get a decision from that
body in a speedy time and people seeking loans can-
not let it hang fire for months on end. Unless the
operation is such that a man can get an answer in a
reasonable time you are likely to be hampered.

There is another point. Under Section 31 it
means that if an insurance policy holder is trying to
get aloanyou cannot assign that policy to a Canadian
or American except by the permission of the Author-
rity. Again this is likely to cause difficulty. Let us
turn to Section 8 (a) by which it is provided that ex-
cept with the permission of the Authority you cannot
make any payment to or for the credit of any person
resident outside the scheduled territories. That would
seem to mean that if an American owns house and
you rent it you cannot pay him rent without the per-
mission of the Authority.


I am pointing out examples of difficulties that
may arise if the provisions of this Act are rigidly
upheld and if the Regulations do not provide for the
smooth administration of the Act. At the moment if


a man from outside the sterling area wants to bring
in money to build a house he has to get permission.
If you carry these provisions to an absurd conclusion
you would not be able to pay hotel charges without
permission.

I am only showing what the possible difficulties
are. I am perfectly sure that the Government has no
intention of hamstringing banks or insurance com-
panies or stopping the flow of investment money that
is coming into the island. However, it is possible
that in the rush of the moment a lot of these points
may be overlooked.

The question that the Bill be read a second time
was put and agreed to.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H. A.
Vaughan seconded by Senator the Honourable F. G.
Smith the Senate went into Committee on the Bill,
Senator Asquith Phillips in the Chair.

Clauses 1 to 40 were called and agreed to with-
out debate.

Clause 41 was called.

SENATOR H. F. ALKINS: What does the word
"revolved" in Clause 41 (b) mean exactly?'

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
That is a printing error. If you make a formal amend-
ment now the Bill will have to go back to the Other
Place. We canhoweverrectifyit between the time of
its passing in thisChamber and the time it is pre-
sented to the Governor-General for his assent.

The Clause was agreed to.

Clauses 42-47 were called and passed without
debate.

The Schedules were called.

Senator the Honourable H. A. Vaughan moved
that the Schedules stand part of the Bill.

Senator the Honourable F. G. Smith seconded
the motion.

The question that the Schedules stand part of the
Bill was put and agreed to.

The question that the passing of the Bill be re-
ported to the Senate was put and agreed to.



His Honour the President resumed the Chair
and the passing of the Bill in Committee was reported
accordingly.



On the motion of Senator the Honourable H. A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable P.M.
Greaves, the Bill was read a third time and passed.












BILL RE UNITED KINGDOM COINS

The President called the fifth Order A Bill to
provide that United Kingdom coins shall not be legal
tender as from a day to be appointed by the Minister
responsible for Finance.

SENATOR THE HONOURABLE H. A. VAUGHAN:
Mr. President, This is not so complex an enact-
men t as the last one. It seeks to implement by ap-
propriate procedure somewhat different from that
originally envisaged a-decision which was taken as
far back as 1961 by the British Government in con-
:sulation with the Caribbean Currency Authority and
o her territories in this area.

At that time the West Indian Federation was in
existence and I think that fact has something to do
with the delay in the formal demonetisation of U.K..
currency in the Caribbean. At that time it was pro-
posed that the demonetisation should take place by
Royal Proclamation, a method which was constitu-
tional and appropriate taking into account the consti-
tutional status of the component elements of the
Federation.

Since then in 1962 Trinidad proceeded withthe
demonetisation of British coins by special legisla-
tion, similarly, in Barbados which like Trinidad, is
an Independent nation, it has to be done by an Act
of Parliament. That is the purpose of the Bill before
us.

I draw attention to Clause 3 which says that as
from the appointed day the United Kingdom coins
specified in the first schedule shall not be legal ten-
der in this island. It will be noted that by Clause 2
"Appointed Day" means such day as the Minister
responsible for Finance, after consultation with the
East Caribbean Currency Authority, may appoint by
order.


I move, sir, that the Bill be reada second time.

The question was put to the Senate and agreed to.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H. A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable P. M.
Greaves, the Senate went into Committee in the Bill,
Senator C. Asquith Phillips in the Chair.

Clauses 1 to 4 of the Bill were called and passed
without debate.

The Schedules were called.

Senator the Honourable H. A. Vaughan moved
that the Schedules stand part of the Bill.

Senator the Honourable 1 F.G. Smith seconded
the motion.



The question that the Schedules stand part of
the Bill was put and agreed to.

The question that the passing of the Bill be re-
ported to the Senate was put and agreed to.

His Honour the President resumed the Chair
and the passing of the Bill in Committee was re-
ported accordingly.

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H. A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable F. G.
Smith, the Bill was reada third time and passed.

ADJOURNMENT

On the motion of Senator the Honourable H, A.
Vaughan, seconded by Senator the Honourable P. M.
Greaves, the Senate adjourned at 6.00 p.m. sine die.
