cretion in order to avoid friction.

pense, if a Probation Officer and Staff had to be appointed and
hostels provided.
The President stated that the cost of the scheme had not yet
been worked out but that it was not probable that the post of-Pro-
bation Officer would be a full-time one.

was vitally necessary to the Colony if juvenile delinquency was to

The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Bill
clause by clause,
The Member for the Western District was opposed to the pro-
visions of Clause 30 (3) as he considered that the clause conferred
on the Governor, the right to interfere in the workings of a pri-
vate concern.

would only be possible when representations were made to him by

The Member for the Western District enquired about the
Pointe Michel Village Board. He wished the position clarified as
the Board had not been functioning for some time although there
was an amount of approximately 60 in hand. He was of the
opinion that if the Board were not functioning it should be dis
solved.







OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, DE"EVIBI~R 4, 195 235

The Crown Attorney explained that the Board could not be
dissolved unless a new Board could be established within six
months of the dissolution of the old Board.
On the suggestion of the member for Roseau it was agreed
that the word "Council" should be substituted for the word
"Board" wherever the latter appeared in the Bill.
The Member for the Eastern District suggested that the word
"'ten" in line 2 of clause 4 should be deleted and the word "eight"
substituted therefore. She also considered that the prii.ciple of an
elected majority should be maintained and that three nominated
*members should suffice for Boards.
General discussion followed this suggestion and it was agreed
to leave the Bill in Committee until the following day when the
Social Welfare Officer would be invited to help in the discussion.
The Council resumed.
The Income Tax (Amendment) Ordinance, 1948.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, a Bill entitled "An Ordinance further to amend the Income
Tax Ordinance, 1925", was read a first time.
,On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Bill was read a second time.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Standing Rules and Orders were suspended to allow
the Bill to be proceeded with through all its remaining stages at
the same sitting
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Bill
clause by clause.
The Member for Roseau thought that the deletion of the Domi-
nica Co-operative Bank from Clause 2, inflicted an injustice on the
poorer section of the community. The Dominica Co-operative
Bank could not be regarded in the same light as the other banks
which had various means of making profits. It relied entirely on
the interest earned on the small deposits made by the poorer
classes.
The President stated that the Bank is a company and the pro-
fits are distributed to the shareholders.
The Honourable Treasurer thought the proposed change in the
law was brought about as a result of representations made by the
St. Lucia Government to the Secretary of State.
Pending the arrival of the Comptroller of Income Tax who
was invited to join in the discussion, clauses 3, 4, 5 and 6 were
passed.
The Council resumed.
The Income Tax (Amendment) Ordinance, 1948.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, a Bill entitled "An Ordinance further to amend the Income
Tax Ordinance, 1925", was read a first time.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, ite Bill was read a second time.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Standing Rules and Orders were suspended to allow the
Bill to be proceeded with through all its remaining stages at the
same sitting.
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Bill
clause by clause.
In clause 1, the words "No. 2" were added to the word
"(Amendment)" in line 2.
The Bill passed through the Committee stage withlone amend-
ment and the Council resumed.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Bill was read a third time and passed.







296 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1950:

The Income Tax (Amendment) Ordinance, 1948.
(Continued).
The Comptroller of Income Tax, who had been invited by the
President to join the Meeting, came in and took a seat.
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider Clause
2.
The President explained the reason why the Bank was now
being made liable to Income Tax. He stated that it had originally
obtained exemption as a Co-operative, but in fact it was not a Co-
operative because the profits of a Co-operative are shared among
the members of the Association and not to shareholders as in this
case.
The Comptroller of Income Tax outlined the difference be.
tween Income Tax paid by an individual and that by a Company.
He explained in detail the relief an individual received when his
total income included dividends from a company. In short, the
tax paid by a company applied only to the undistributed profits of
the Company.
The marginal note to Clause 6 was amended as follows: -
"Commencement of sections 3, 4 and 5" instead of "Commence-
ment of Sections 3, 4 and 6".
The Bill passed through the Committee stage with one amend-
ment and the Council resumed.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Bill was read a third time and passed.

On the motion of the Member for Roseau, seconded by the
Honourable J. 0. Aird, a private Bill entitled "An Ordinance to
incorporate the Reformed Methodist Church" was read a first

Honourable J.O. Aird, the Bill was read a second time.
On the motion of the Member for Roseau, seconded by the
Honourable J. 0. Aird, the Standing Rules were suspended to allow
the Bill to be proceeded with through all its remaining stages at
the same sitting.
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Bill
clause by clause.
On the motion of the Member for Roseau, a new clause No. 6,
of which notice had previously been given--was inserted.
The new clause was read a second time.
The Member for Roseau moved the deletion of section 2 of the
Schedule, and the consequent re-numbering of the other sections.
This was agreed to and the Schedule was amended accordingly.
The Bill passed through the Committee stage with two amend-
ments and the Council resumed.
On the motion of the member for Roseau, seconded by the
Honourable J.O. Aird, the Bill was read a third time and passed.
