ing the cost of sending a delegate to the Fifth Conference of the

tance in the other islands being made.

cer for the appointment of an "Apprentice" to the Dental Depart-
ment to be paid at the rate of 15/- per week.

The Committee agreed.

resolution passed at a Meeting of the Federation of Primary Pro-






ducers of the British Caribbean and British Guiana (Ltd). in Bar-

ference of the General Agreements on Tariffs and Trade. This
resolution was adopted unanimously by the unofficial members of
the Committee The official members abstained from voting.
Mr. Shillingford stressed that any further reduction would

submission of an application to Co!onial Development and Welfare
for a grant of 1,600 to provide the Housing Authority with ade-
quate executive staff to carry out its functions.
Inspection Fees due by Vanilla Growers
A association.
His Honour invited members to reconsider the question of
having recourse to legal process for collecting the sum of $136.05
from the Vanilla Growers Association in respect of Inspection fees
owing by them.
The circumstances surrounding the refusal of the Vanilla
Growers Association to pay those fees were fully reviewed by the
meeting and it was agreed that the amount should be written off.
Acquisition of Land at Geneva Estate
for use of Tenantry.
His Honour gave the Committee a brief summary of develop-
ment in regard to Government's proposal to acquire lands on the
Geneva Estate to accommodate some 200 tenants to whom Mr.
Nassief was unwilling to offer land.
He then invited the Committee to consider whether for the
following principal reasons this proposal of Government should not
now be abandoned:-
(i) Mr. Nassief's undertaking to reconsider the matter
and to offer land to these people.
(ii) The alternative possibility that after Government
had spent a large sum of money to acquire, prospec-
tive tenants might then refuse Government's terms.
After a full discussion of the matter it was decided that Gov-
ernment's proposal to acquire such lands should be abandoned
since the reasons for acquiring had disappeared.
Visit of Mr. J. L. Nicol, Educational Adviser
to Colonial Development and Welfare.
Mr. J. L. Nicol, Educational Adviser to the Comptroller, Co-
lonial Development and Welfare Organization, who was here on
a visit attended the meeting at the invitation of His Honour who
introduced him to members. Mr. J. Hamilton Maurice, Educa-
tional Officer, was also present.







Members took the opportunity to discuss with him the pro-
posal for the establishment of a local Agricultural School, and the
school finding of necessitous children. Mr. Nichol gave his views
on the various aspects of these matters in reply to questions put
to him by several members, at the end of which His Honour
thanked him warmly on behalf of the Committee.
Extension of School building at San Sauveur.
His Honour submitted to the Committee an application by
Reverend Father A. Berteau for a grant in aid to assist him in
making an extension to the San Sauveur School building. The
amount suggested by Father Berteau was half the estimated cost
of the repairs.
After some discussion the Committee approved of the grant.
Adjournment.
The Committee then adjourned, sine die.
