Absent :-
The Honourable C. A. HARNEY, Crown Attorney,
SARTHUR PEMBERTON(On official business)
Confirmation of Minutes.
The minutes of the meeting held on the 18th January, 1950,
were read and confirmed.
Business arising out of Minutes.
Roseau Jetty.
Mrs. Napier spoke of the shocking condition of the jetty and
asked how soon was something going to be done about it. His
Honour agreed that repairs should be begun immediately,
Telephone Exchange, Portsmouth.
Mr. Bertrand complained that the new switch-board had not
been installed at the Portsmouth Exchange and asked His Honour
to go into the matter.
His Honour promised to do so.
Members reiterated their complaints about the telephone ser-
vice and said that it was getting worse.
Windward Islands Representation on
University College Council.
His Honour informed members that it had been decided that
the fairest arrangement would be for a representative to be ap-
pointed by each Island in turn for a period of two years and on
that basis the Honourable Garnet H. Gordon, O.B.E., of St. Lucia,
had been selected to represent the Windward Islands on the Per-
manent Council of the University College for a period of two years
as from February 1st, 1950.







Nutrition Officer.
His Honour read a draft despatch to the Secretary of State
prepared by His Excellency the Governor making application for
a free grant of 2,000 to provide for the services of a Nutrition
Officer for the Windward Islands.
His Honour explained the purpose and working of the scheme
and pointed out that the c st would be met from the Windward
Islands General Allocation.
Members approved of the submission of the application.
Telephone Massacre.
His Honour informed members that provision had been made
in the 1950 Estimates for a telephone to be installed at Massacre.
Mr. Winston reminded His Honour that people from Roseau
had got to the Massacre fire before it was possible to get a tele-
phone message to Roseau and felt in view of the emergency that
Government should have the right to spend the money.
His Honour explained the position and promised to have the
telephone installed as soon as possible after the approval of the
Estimates.
Settlement of Balances of Army Accounts.
His Honour read a minute from the Acting Financial Secre-
tary in connection with an amount of $91.79 which appeared in the
Treasury Accounts as being due by the Army, and suggesting how
this account should be cleared.
The Acting Financial Secretary informed members that since
writing the minute an amount had been received from the Army
authorities which completely reversed the position and asked to
withdraw the minute.
The Committee agreed.
Storage and Preservation of Food Products.
His Honour read a Saving Telegram No. 619 of the 3)th No.
vember, 1949, from the Secretary of State regarding the need for
a survey of the distribution of insects and rodents and of the at.
tendant losses.
The view of the Committee was that they knew that the Co-
lony had rats. What they wanted to know was how to success-
fully go about exterminating them. The Committee, however,
would welcome a survey as long as there was no charge to the
Colony.
The Committee agreed that this Colony should be represented
on the Working Party.
Telephone Reorganisation.
His Honour read a telegram from the Secretary of State No.
35 of the 27th January, 1950, stating that representatives of Cable
and Wireless Ltd. may visit British Guiana about mid-February
and if desired they would undertake a survey of the Windward
Islands Telephone system.








His Honour informed members that he had replied stating
that this Colony would welcome an early survey.
Constitutional Reform.
His Honour informed members of a suggestion from the Ad-
ministrator of St. Lucia that the services of Mr. Bowen, Registrar
of Friendly Societies, Trinidad, be obtained to assist to prepare
for an election on the basis of universal adult suffrage as he had
been responsible for all preparations with the similar change of
the constitution in Trinidad.
The Committee asked for further information as they did not
envisage the work that would be required of Mr. Bowen.
His Honour promised to go into the matter.
(Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny with His Honour's permission retired
from the meeting.)
Supplementary Votes.
The Committee approved of Supplementary Votes to meet ex-
penditure under the following Heads:-
Hiadil Snli-Head A mountS
Ill. (ioveniior 4. Stationery $212.50
XXV. lPublic Works Extraordinary Storage o(f Steel $500.00
XX XI. Miscellaneous 1,'. Sundries $482.5.1
XXXI. Treasury 32. Safes anl Cash Boxes $ .'..."i,
Inter-Island School Tournament.
His Honour informed members that the inter-island Schools
Tournament was to be held in Dominica this year and read a let-
ter from the Acting Headmaster asking for financial assistance in
connection therewith.
The Committee agreed to advance the amount required but
stipulated that the Acting Headmaster should reimburse Govern-
ment if takings permitted.
(Mr C.A.H. Dupigny came in and took his seat.)
Farm Institute.
His Honour read Circular Minute No. 8 of the 7th January,
1950, from His Excellency the Governor outlining the scheme for
the establishment of a Farm Institute to serve the Eastern Carib-
bean.
Mr. Shillingford was of the opinion that it was a good idea but
feared that the establishment of such a school would stand in the
way of our local agricultural school which was so much required.
He said that this Farm Institute seemed to train boys for Govern-
ment jobs whereas the idea of the local school was to train a large
number of peasants' sons yearly in order to better Agriculture in
the island.
His Honour explained that the two would not conflict and that
possibly the best two boys of the school could be sent to the Farm
Institute.
Mr. Winston was all in favour of the scheme but contended
that our local Agricultural School should first be established and







our first students to the Institute should come from our local Agri-
cultural School.
His Honour pointed out the disadvantage of such procedure.
After discussion the Committee approved of the scheme pro-
vided that it would in no way conflict with the Committee's de-
sired wish for the early establishment of an Agricultural School in
Dominica.
Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny abstained from voting on the ground that
he considered the Farm Institute a serious threat to the graduates
of the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture. He compared the
cost of training a boy at the Imperial College of Tropical Agricul-
ture with that of a boy at the Farm Institute which was pretty
much the same and said that at the same cost you would be getting
a lower status. He was convinced that if the scheme were accept-
ed, the posts which should be filled by applicants with the Diploma
of the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture would soon be
filled by boys from the Farm Institute thereby lowering the stan-
dard of Agriculture in the Colony.
Adjournment.
The meeting then adjourned to 2.30 p.m.
Resumption.
On resumption all were present with the exception of Honour-
ables J. O. Aird and T. M. Bertrand.
Increase of salary to P. R. Ells.
The Committee considered Circular Savingram No. 14 of the
17th of January, 1950, from the Governor's Deputy forwarding a
copy of a letter dated 22nd September, 1949, from the Principal
Auditor, Windward Islands, in which he recommended that P. R
Ells, Assistant Auditor, be granted the maximum salary of his
scale, i.e., /650 p.a. as from the 1st January, 1948.
The Committee approved of the Principal Auditor's recom-
mendation.
(Hon. J 0. Aird came in and took his seat.)
Clerical Assistant.
An application from the Acting Financial Secretary for au-
thority to employ a clerical assistant for three months in connec-
tion with work urgently required for the Customs Union Con-
ference was put before the Committee.
He asked in the first instance that the amount be met from
the Substitutes Vote and on the approval of the Estimates this ex-
penditure would be transferred to provision for increase of staff
in Treasury. Should the Secretary of State turn down the pro-
posals for additional staff then a Special Warrant would be neces-
sary.
Mr. Winston objected to being told in one instance to await
the approval of the Estimates and in the other to be asked to give
approval.
His Honour explained that the cases were not parallel.
The Committee approved of the application.
Mr. Winston dissented.








Colonial Police Service -Training Course.
His Honour read Circular Despatch of the 4th of January, 1950,
from the Secretary of State outlining a scheme for the training for
Gazetted Rank at Ryton-on-Dunsmore of Colonial Police Service
Personnel.
Mr. Shillingford's view was that a West Indies training scheme
would be more suitable as the conditions obtaining in England
were entirely different to that cut here.
The Committee agreed that Inspector C. M. Roberts should be
nominated for the course.
Motor Traffic Control.
Mr. Aird complained of the hopeless traffic signals given bY
the Policemen and asked for something to be done about it.
Fire Service.
His Honour discussed the question of a Fire Engine with the
Committee and showed members photos of an engine with a 650
gallon water tank about which he had made enquries while in
England.
It was decided to leave the matter over for the next meeting
in view of certain correspondence which had been received since
this item was placed on the Agenda.
Liaison Officer.
The Committee agreed to make contribution towards the cost
of tne Liaison Officer for West Indian Students in the United
Kingdom in respect of expenditure to date and for the future.
Members were under the impression that the British Council
was about to take over responsibility for the welfare of Colonial
Students and asked His Honour to make the necessary inquiries.
Control of shiftingg Cultivation.
His Honour informed members that the Secretary of State had
approved of a grant of 19,200 for the operation of the Forest
Squatting Control Scheme.
Education,
His Honour informed members that the Secretary of State had
approved of a grant from Colonial Development and Welfare funds
of 5,000 for the purchase of books, stationery, furniture, etc., for
elementary schools.
St. Joseph Water Supply.
His Honour informed members of the Secretary of State's ap-
proval of a grant of 5,850 from Colonial Development and Wel-
fare Funds for a water supply for the village of St. Joseph.
Roads.
His Honour read a minute from the Chairman of the Roads
and Tracks Joint Committee submitting a list of roads to receive
consideration and their order of priority.
Finance Committee approved of the list.
Colonial Development Corporation.
Mr. Shillingford asked when the Colonial Development Cor-







portion would get started on the various projects which had been
agreed upon.
His Honour replied that he expected operations:to-start
momentarily as he had been given to understand that the Packing
and Grading Plant would be in operation by September, 1950.
The Committee then adjourned, sine die.
D. K. BURTON,
Clerk of Council.
Confirmed this 22nd day of March, 1950.

Administrator.
