CUSTOMS UNION REPORT.
The following message from the Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies to the peo-
ples of the West Indies in connection with
the Customs Union Report is published
for general information:
I wish to express my appreciation of the
valuable services rendered by the members
of the Commission for the Establishment
of a Customs Union in the British Carib-
bean Area, whose Report is published to_
day. It is a worthy companion to the Re.
ports of the Standing Closer Association
Committee and the Commission on the
Unification of the Public Services, and it
98. 7181 rms another important contribution to

4 71/


the cause of closer unity between the Bri-
tish West Indian territories.
As the Commission observe, a customs
union could be established either with or
without political federation, and its form-
ation can therefore be considered quite
separately from the wider issue The
Report indicates the substantial advar-
tages which are to be gained from such
an union, and sets out with admirable
clarity and detail the practical steps by
which it might be achieved.
In commending the Report to the Legis-
latures for the earnest consideration
which it merits, and which I hope will be
given to it with all reasonable expedition,
I would like to repeat what Mr. Creech
Jones said in his message at the time of
the publication of the two other Reports
mentioned above; namely, that His
Majesty's Government have no wish to
prejudge or influence the decisions of the
representatives of the West i.dian peoples
in this matter, but that they will be ready
to assist in any measures which, after
examination of the Report by the Legisla-
tures, may appear feasible and in further-
ance of the aims accepted at the Montego
Bay Conference in 1947.
C. 96/48

Adminiistrator's Office,
2nd February 1951.

Confirmation of Minutes.
The Minutes of the meeting neld on Wednesday, 12th October,
1949, were read and confirmed.
Road Development Programme.
His Honour reid telegram No. 17 of the Ist November, 1949,
from the Secretary of State approving of an interim grant of
6,000 made up of 5,000 for track repairs and 1,000 for im-
provement of Laudat Road Scheme D 1230.
The question of road construction was discussed. The Com-
mittee was of the opinion that the big road construction jobs
should be done by contract on a percentage plus basis under the
supervision of the Director of Works and the small jobs by the
Public Works Department.
The Committee was also in agreement with the Acting Trea-
surer's suggestion that a contracting firm from Trinidad which
was now operating in St. Lucia should be contacted before their
heavy equipment was moved back to Trinidad.
(Mr. C. J. L. Dupigny came in and took his seat).
The Committee expressed their thanks for the interim grant
and asked His Honour to cable the Secretary of State to that effect.
Water Supply-Morne Rachette.
The Acting Senior Medical Officer was called to the meeting.








He explained that all surface washings were generally polluted
and his great fear was for the children of the village who would
be liable to drink that water and do themselves grievous harm, if
the water-hole at Morne Rackette were re-opened.
(Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny came in and took his seat.)
The matter was discussed. The Committee decided that the
cost of piping water from Batalie to Morne Rachette and continu-
ing a pipeline service to Coulibistrie should be obtained.
Dr. Armour retired from the meeting.
Orphanage in Roseau.
His Honour read Saving Telegram No. 2 6 of the 13th October
from the Acting Governor in connection with a Farm House for
juvenile delinquents pointing out that this project appeared to cut
across the Scheme for a Central Reformatory for the Windward
Islands for boys between the ages of 14 and 18.
The matter was discussed.
Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny was of the opinion that it was a mistake
to try to reform delinquents between the ages of 14 to 18 while
those between 5 14 were left alone.
The Committee, supported Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny's suggestion
that a token amount of say 100 should be voted and placed at the
disposal of the Social Welfare Officer for boarding out delinquents
between the ages of 5 -- 14 and agreed that the amount should be
voted at the Budget Session.
Library Service.
An application from the Librarian of the Free Library on be-
half of the Library Staff asking to be paid for work performed in
connection with the Regional Library Scheme was considered.
It w;,s decided that the matter should be referred to the
Library Committee for their views as to whether the additional
work involved necessitated extra payment.
Eastern Caribbean Library Service.
His Honour read despatch No. 94 of the 26th September, 1949,
asking for certain assurances in connection with the establishment
of the East Caribbean Library Scheme.
The Committee felt that it was impossible to give an assur-
anse that the Colony would be able to establish and maintain such
a library in 1953 in view of the financial plight of the Colony, but
should funds be available this Council was quite willing to establish
such a Library.
Conference on Livdstock.
The Committee agreed that Mr. H. V. H. Morris, Veterinary
Officer, Windward Islands, should represent the Colony at a Con-
ference on Livestock to be held in Barbados in February, 1950,
under the auspices of the Caribbean Commission.








Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny pointed out the grave necessity for a
Livestock policy in the Colony and suggested that Dominica should
have its own representative in addition to Mr. Morris, because of
the seriousness of the meat situation in Dominica.
The Committee was not in agreement with Mr. Dupigny's
suggestion as they felt that an additional representative would not
help to relieve the situation.
Mr. Dupigny asked that his objection be recorded in the
strongest possible terms and commented that the Committee was
committing murder to their country by passing over lightly such
a serious'matter.
Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny asked whether the Committee was pre-
pared to do anything about livestock.
His Honour explained that as soon as Mr. Morris arrived he
would be asked to formulate a Livestock policy for the Colony.
Advance Accounts.
His Hono'ir informed members that there were certain Ad-
vance Accounts which had to be cleared, such as "Visit to
Jamaica" in connection with bananas.
Corporal J. A. Pogson.
The Committee approved the issue of a Special Warrant for
$150 to meet the cost of transferring Corporal J. A. Pogson to the
Leeward Islands.
Rates of allowance for Colonial Development
and Welfare Scholars.
His Honour read out the financial implications involved if the
new rates for Colonial Development and Welfare Scholars were
accepted.
'The Committee approved of the new rates being paid to
Government Scholars.
Festival of Britain, 1951.
His Honour read a Circular Despatch of the 5th September
from the Secretary of State relative to arrangements for the Fes-
tival of Britain, 1951, with particular reference to the part which

participate.

The Committee agreed that the salary should be revised when
the 1950 Estimates were being considered to the scale of $1,248
x $96 to $1,728.
Ambulance for Roseau.
His Honour read Dominica Despatch No. 64 of the 14th Octo-
ber applying for a free grant from Colonial Development and
Welfare funds for the purchase of an Ambulance in connection
with the proposed extension of the Roseau Hospital which had
been referred to him by the Acting Governor asking whether
Finance Committee had been consulted.
The Committee were in agreement with the application but
pointed out the hardships undergone in the Northern District and
asked that the application be altered so as to include an ambulance
for Portsmouth.
Town and Country Planning:Ordinance.
His Honour submitted the Town and Country Planning Or-
dinance for the consideration of members.
The Committee asked that the matter be left over for Legis-
lative Council.
West Indian University College.
His Honour read Circular Saving Telegram No. 32 of the 10th
October suggesting the most suitable procedure for selecting one
candidate as representative of the Windward Islands.
(Honourable J.O. Aird came in and took his seat).
The Committee approved of the procedure~and the elected
members appointed Honourable C.A.H. Dupigny as this Colony's
choice.








Sale'of Melville Hall Estate.
The Committee considered a cable from the Colonial Develop-
ment Corporation submitting three alternatives for the purchase
of Melville Hall Estate.
The Committee approved of the outright sale of Melville Hall
Estate for 11,000 exclusive of the Airfield site.
Bridges.
His Honour read for the information of members a minute
from the Director of Works with reference to an inquiry by Mr.
Bertrand regarding a bridge for the Dormant River.
Mr. Shillingford said that the Director's statement was wrong.
He had asked that the Dublanc Bridge should be made large
enough to allow cart and not lorry traffic and he had agreed to pay
the estimated increase which was approximately 35. Mr. Shil-
lingford claimed that the bridge had been further widened and
that he was not consulted. He was therefore not prepared to pay
the bill which was submitted to him for over 100.
Mr. Bertrad asked His Honour to take some action in the
matter as the need was urgent.
Mr. Dupigny pointed out the need for a ten foot bridge over
tfie Dormant River in view of the growing Banana Industry,
Members agreed with Mr. Dupigny's suggestion.
Supply Office.
His Honour read the Acting Treasurer's report on the accounts
of the Supply Office which was discussed.
The Committee approved of the 194b and 1949 accounts being
written up by Mr. Daway at his fee, Mr.. Charles to understudy
Mr. Daway and Mr. Butler to be relieved of his duties in the Cus-
toms so as to enable:him to concentrate on the writing up of the
Abstract.
The Committee also approved of the Acting Treasurer's sug-
gestion for the appointment of an Accountant in the Department
and that the post belmade a First Class Clerkship.
Substitutes.
The Acting Treasurer informed members that the Substitutes
Vote was exceeded but that he still required the substitute taken
on in connection with the Customs Union work which was not com-
pleted and asked that he be allowed a Special Warrant to pay the
substitute and savings from his Treasury vote could be quoted.
The Committee approved.
Constitutional Reform.
A memorandum on revision of constitutional documents which
had previously been circulated to members was considered.
The Committee agreed to the suggested amendments.








Sealand Service,
An application from Mr. Hartman Norman for the post of
Coxswain of the Launch for the Sealand Service was considered.
The Committee recommended that the post be offered to Mr.
Norman.
The Committee also recommended that Mr. A. D. S. Murray
should be requested to get a good diesel engineer preferably from
Barbados at the salary quoted.
Proposals for Government Printing.
A list of new rates submitted by His Lordship, Bishop Moris,
for Government Printing at the Bulletin Office was considered and
accepted.
The Committee asked that Government explore the possibility
of putting up its own Printing Press.
Subsidising.
Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny asked that Government consider subsi-
dising or removing the duty on essential articles in view of the in-
creasing cost of living.
The Acting Treasurer did not think it possible because of the
economic condition of the Colony.
The Committee then adjourned sine die.
D. K. BURTON,
Clerk of Council.
