The Minutes of the meeting held on 16th November, 1949, were
read, and confirmed.
Agricultural Training Centre.
The estimate for establishing an Agricultural Training Cen-
tre which had been previously circulated to members was dis-
cussed.
His Excellency mentioned that Nicholls was extremely hope-
ful that the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture would be
running a farm school for that purpose and felt that a central in-
stitution would offer better facilities for training. He advised
against making any draft plaw's for a local school.
The Committee pointed out the shortage of trained Overseers
and Managers in the Colony and the need for improving the Agri-
cultural knowledge of the peasant's sons. They were of the
opinion that even if the Trinidad Farm could absorb our large re-
quirements, the Colony would not be able to afford the cost.
His Excellency remarked that the man trained at the Farm
School would be able on his return to interpret his knowledge to
the local people.
Mr. Shillingford did not disagree but felt that something must
be done locally to improve the standard of the peasantry.
Mrs. Napier said that the Colony needed something more
simple.and possibly our good boys at the school would qualify for
Trinidad.







Members were agreeable that there was room for both schools.
(The Agricultural Superintendent was called to the meeting.)
He explained various points which arose in considering the
scheme.
Mr. Winston took strong objections to the scheme being run
as a commercial enterprise, He said that the scheme was unsatis-
factory and advised against it.

question of financing the school.

,, ,, Austin Winston,

One member of the Goodwill Management Committee.
Plant Distribution.
The Agricultural Superintendent said that he had considered
carefully the request from Honourable Members for an increase in
plant production and advised an increase to 45,000 citrus budded
plants.
The Committee agreed to increasing the plant distribution
vote to $20.000 in order to effect the increase.
The Committee agreed to the increase in price of budded
citrus plants to 10 cents to large plantation proprietors.
Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny asked His Excellency to recommend
strongly the increased amount in the Estimates for Plant Distri-
bution.
His Excellency advised His Honour to mention the matter in
his dispatch when forwarding the Estimates.
The Agricultural Superintendent retired from the meeting.

and spoke of the delapidated condition of the present one. He
asked for repairs so as to allow the people facilities to land their
cargoes.
Mr. Shillingford felt that some temporary arrangements for
repairs should be made.
(Mr. J. 0 Aird, with His Excellency's permission, retired
from the meeting.)
His Excellency said that the scheme for.the building of the
New Jetty for Roseau had been approved and that the work could
be proceeded with.
The Acting Treasurer replied that he was under the impres-
sion that the floating of the loan had to be awaited and welcomed
His Excellency's statement. He suggested that the Director of
Works make estimates for repairs and the Council would provide
the money in the 1950 Estimates.
His Excellency promised to go into the question with the
Acting Treasurer.
Rosean Sea Wall.
Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny drew attention to a huge hole in the
wall opposite Mr. W. F. Harrison's office and pointed out the
urgency of the matter.

an estimate.
