RESOLUTIONS.
Closer Association of B. W. I. Colonies.
The Acting Crown Attorney, seconded by the Member for
Roseau, moved that the Council resolve itself into a Committee of
the whole Council to consider a Resolution regarding the Closer
Association of the British West Indian Colonies, notice -of which
had been previously given.
Agreed to.
Resolutions of the Montego Bay Conference.
The Resolutions of the Conference on the Closer Association
of the British West Indian Colonies, held at Montego Bay, Jamaica,
from the 11th until the 19th of September, 1947, were considered.
Resolution 1.
On a motion of the Member for Roseau, Resolution 1 was
amended by the addition of the following proviso :-
"provided that Dominica is regarded as a separate con-
"stituent unit of the Federation."
Resolution 1, as amended, was read and agreed to.
Resolution 2.
The Member for the Western District moved that an amend-
ment should be made to the Resolution, so as to make it abundantly
clear that, in the case of Dominica, the introduction of Adult
Suffrage was the first and most important means necessary to
achieve an "increased measure of responsibility." He strongly
urged that Members should take the opportunity now before them
to express definite recommendations ,regarding this important
matter.
The President explained that the whole matter of Constitu-
tional Reform, including Adult Suffrage, was at present under
consideration by the Secretary of State. The adoption of the Re-
solution now before the House could not in any way deter any steps
taken for the introduction of Adult Suffrage in Dominica. He
gave an assurance, however, that the views expressed by Members
would be recorded in the minutes of proceedings and brought to
the notice of the Secretary of State.
The Members for the Southern District and Roseau expressed
their general agreement with the proposals put forward by the
President, and did not therefore consider any amendment neces-
sary.
Resolution 2 was read and agreed to.
Resolution 3 to 8 were read and agreed to.
The suggestions made by the Secretary of State in his circu-
lar despatch of the 4th day of December, 1947, regarding Resolu-
tions 3 to 7, were read and agreed to.









Resolution 9.
Members were strongly of the opinion that a representative
from Dominica should be a member of the Economic Development
Committee proposed in the Resolution.
Resolution 9, together with the Secretary of State's sugges-
tion thereon, was read and agreed to.
Resolutions 10 and 11, together with the Secretary of State's
suggestions thereon, were read and agreed to.
Resolution 12, together with the Secretary of State's sugges-
tion thereon, was read and agreed to.
Resolution 13 and 14, together with the Secretary of State's
suggestions thereon, were read and agreed to.
Resolutions having been considered, the Committee rose and
the Council resumed, and the President reported that the Resolu-
tions of the Montego Bay Conference had passed through Com-
mittee with an Amendment to Resolution 1, and that the sugges-
tions made by the Secretary of State regarding these Resolutions
had also been accepted.
The Report was confirmed.
The Acting Crown Attorney, seconded by the Member for
Roseau, then moved the adoption by the Council of the following
Resolution :-
"WHEREAS the Montego Bay Conference on the
Closer Association of the British West Indian Colonies
"held at Jamaica from the 1]th until the 19th Septembec,
1947, adopted certain resolutions relative to the Closer
Association of the British West Indian Colonies ;
AND WHEREAS copies of the said Resolutions
"were circulated to Honourable Members of this Council
"on the 8th of January, 1948;
"AND WHEREAS this Council is in accord with the
"substance of the said Resolutions :
BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislative Council of
"Dominica hereby adopts the said Resolutions."
The Resolution was carried.

Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Resolu-
tion.
The Member for the Western District complained of the fre-
quency of the submission of Special Warrants for excessive over-
expenditure on the approved Estimates. He strongly criticised
the obvious lack of control exercised by the Heads of the Depart-
ments concerned, and he felt that, with the exception of the
Medical and Prison Departments, the reasons given for such ex-
cesses could not be considered satisfactory. The Member went
on to state that it was an easy matter for Liabilities to be noted
against the voted amounts, in order that advance approval could
be obtained before the moneys were actually expended. He re-
fused to accept the excuse made by the Treasurer to the effect that
accounts from the Crown Agents were received late, and, in con-
clusion, he stated that he could not agree to the passing of the
Resolution.
The President assured Members that Heads of Departments
were at present exercising the greatest control possible over ap-
proved estimates of expenditure and that any anticipated excess
would be brought to the notice of Finance Committee.
The Member for Roseau drew attention to the late date on
which the 1945 accounts were submitted, and urged strongly that
Governments officials should be made to perform overtime duties
in order that their work could be brought up-to-date.
The Treasurer assured Members that there were no arrears of
work in his Department.
The President stated that the actual submission of the Reso-
lution for approval of the Council was, unfortunately, overlooked.









The Member for the Southern District agreed that the Reso-
Tution was rather belated, but he felt that Members, on the other
hand, were overlooking the fact that the Estimates for the current
year were approved by the Secretary of State at too late a date.
With regard to the large over-expenditure involved, he felt that
proper control of expenditure was becoming increasingly difficult,
owing to the high cost of living, and the rising cost of materials,
and that the only solution to the problem was to augment the re-
venue and resources of the Colony. He pointed out that, accord-
ing to certain West Indian newspapers, cuttings from which he
intended forwarding to the Government, certain islands were being
offered high prices for their produce. He wished it to be placed on
record that he was strongly of opinion that similar concessions
should be made to Dominica, and he requested that his views be
brought to the notice of the Secretary of State, together with re-
commendations for shipping facilities.
Under Head XIV-Education-the Member for Roseau criti-
cised the low standard of education, and the lack of discipline in the
schools of the Colony. He was of the opinion that these were due
to several factors, viz: absence of Result Grants for Teachers, the
considerable amount of time devoted to play on the schools' curri-
culum, and the late age at which children were sent to school.
The Member for the Southern District stated that the de-
terioration in the educational system was due to age-grouping,
and agreed that teachers should be eligible for Result Grants.
The Member for the Eastern District was also against the
system of age-grouping, and complained that on her visit to
several schools, she had found them over crowded.
The Member for the Northern District felt that the lack of
interest shown by teachers in their work was one of the reasons
for the low standard of education in the Colony, and urged that
more frequent inspections of the schools should be made.
The President undertook to go into these matters.
The Resolution was carried.
Supplementary Votes, 1946.
The Treasurer, seconded by the Acting Crown Attorney,
moved the adoption by the Council of the following Resolution,
notice of which had been previously given :--
RESOLVED that this Council hereby approves of the expen-
diture set forth in the Schedule hereto annexed with respect to the
quarter ended 31st December, 1946, and amounting to three thous-
and six hundred and thirteen pounds in addition to the sums when
have been provided in the Estimates for the financial year com-

White, the Member for Roseau wished to know the position re-
garding the grant of an agricultural scholarship to the Imperial

for the Western District wished to know whether any training
classes were held by the two candidates who had attended the
course in Grenada.

by the two candidates in question.
Under the same Head, the Member for the Northern District
complained that very little use was being made of the services of
Miss Savarin, who had attended the last Handcraft Training
Course in Barbados, and it was his intention to bring this matter
to the notice of the Education Officer.
The Resolution was carried.
Refund of Duty on Musical Instruments.

moved the adoption by the Council of the following Resolution,
notice of which had been previously given ;-

District stated that he had received certain information that
artisans and masons had been recruited from St. Lucia for employ-
ment, at remunerative wage rates, in the Dutch Islands of Aruba
and Curacao. He wished to know whether Government had any
such intimation.
The President replied in the negative.
The Member for the Western District thereupon requested
the President to approach the necessary authorities and to ascer-
tain whether similar recruitment could not be extended to Domi-
nica. He stressed that the serious labour situation in the Colony
was getting more acute.
The President undertook to take the necessary steps in this
matter.

The Member for the Western District referred to the Ordin-
ance passed by Council at the meeting held on the 30th of Decem-









ber, 1947, providing for the establishment and duties of a Vanilla
Committee. He requested that the Committee be appointed with-
out any further delay with a view to alleviating the present un-
satisfactory state of affairs.
The President promised to take immediate steps for the ap-
pointment of the Vanilla Committee.
Protection of Tenants, Landowners, etc.
The Member for the Western District urged that, in order to
give the necessary protection, in present-day conditions, to both
tenants and landowners, etc., the Small Tenants legislation should
be enacted at a very early date.
The President promised to take early action in this matter.
Limes Industry.
The Member for the Southern District produced three Jamaica
newspaper clippings, which he handed to the President, and which
revealed information concerning increased prices for limes export-
ed to the United Kingdom, with a request for co-operation from
the other Islands to meet the large demand.
The President undertook to go into the matter.
