His Honour read a minute from the Acting Director of Works
estimating the cost of a water service to Morne Rachette and an
extension to Coulibistrie at $13,000.

lages in more urgent need of a water service than Morne Rachette,
which was flanked by two rivers. They felt that there should be
a fixed plan for giving water servic-s to villages and asked that
a survey be made to determine the villages which should be given

The question of the post of Supervising Road Engineer which
was advertised at a salary in excess of the rate now paid to the

ed responsibility and was of the opinion that the Director of Works
should be responsible for the Road Programmes regardless of the
salary question.
Mr. Winston asked whether the Director of Works was satis
fied that this new Engineer was essential as he could not see the
necessity for two Engineers.
His Honour felt that another man was necessary.

the Layou Valley, on the left bank of the river, or the Clarke Hall
side, did not require expert advice for construction and asked
when work was going to be started on it.

ing prepared for that road.
Mr. Bertrand thanked His Honour and expressed the hope
that the estimate would soon be completed so that work might
start before the wet season set in
(Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny came in and t ok his seat.)
His Honour gave Mr. Dupigny a short resume of the discus-
sion on the Library Service.
Road Specifications

road to be constructed before work commenced and stated his
reasons for doing so.
His Honour promised to obtain details of specification.
Road Committee to visit Roads.
Mr. Pemberton reminded members that there was a Road
Committee and he was of the opinion that it was necessary for
that committee to pay periodic visits to the roads for the purpose
of.checking up on specifications.
His Honour agreed with Mr. Pemberton and thought it a good
idea.
Stamp Issue to commemorate Inauguration
of the University Colege.
His Honour read a letter from the Principal of the University
College of the West Indies containing a proposal for assisting the
development of the University College through the issue of a

made.

made in the 1950 Estimates for the installation of a telephone and

Emeralda in place of M. V. Goodwill, which was destroyed, was
considered.
