BILLS.
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, seconded by the Trea-
surer, the Council resolved itself into Committee to continue con-
sideration of the Education Bill.








252 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26; 1951

The President thought it would be helpful to invite the Edu.
cation Officer to be present during consideration of the Bill.
(The Education Officer joined the Meeting.)
The year "1948"' in line 2 of Clause 1 was amended to "1949."
The Honourable Member for Roseau stated that according to
the definition of "Child" the Governor-in-Council could fix any age
and he thought that this power should not be vested in the Gov-
ernor-in-Couucil. Accordingly the words "or may be fixed by the
Governor-in-Couneil by regulations under this Ordinance" in the-
definition of "Child" in Clause 2 were deleted.
The Honourable H D. Shillitgford wished elucidation of (b)
of definition of "Efficient Elementary instruction."
The Education Officer stated that t'e decision as to whom a
Certificate of competency to teach should be granted, would rest
with the Education Officer. That this certificate would be a safe--
guard ensuring that whoever kept a private schoolwascompetent
to do so.
The Honourable H. D. Shillingford was of the opinion that the.
main purpose of the Bill was to eliminate private schools and he
felt very strongly en that point, as he was definitely of the opinion
Chat private schools were the salvation of Education.
The Member for the Western District stated that in reading
the objects of the Bib. there was no indication that Education was
being reviewed with the purpose of increasing or disseminating
more knowledge and as a Member of the Legislative Council, re-
presenting the Community, he could only agree witti the Bill if it
had that purpose.
The Education Officer stressed that there was no intention of
eliminating private schools but by requesting that those who kept
private schools should hold a Certificate of Competency, he was.
only trying to safeguard the standard of E ucation which was:
what Honourable Members were insisting upon.
In discussing the definition for "Government School" the
Member for the Western District was of the opinion that a Gov-
ernment School was one entirely maintained from the revenue of
the Colony, and; asked that the words "established by the Gov-
ernor and" be deleted and the word "wholly" inserted therefore.
The word "six" was deleted from the definition of "Play
Centre" and the word "Five"' substituted therefore. Clause 4 (1).
The Honourable H.D. Shillingford stated that it appeared to him
that throughout the whole- Bill the Legislative Council had prac--
tically passed on its powers- to the Governor-in-Council and, he
suggested that at least two members of the Legislative Council
should be elected on the Education Board.
The Member for the Western District supported the sugges-
tion as he considered that much trouble would be avoided.
Accordingly the words "and not less than two shall be elected
members of the Legislative Council," were inserted at the end of
Clause 4 (1).
Claztse 6 (b). The Member for the Western District was op,
posed to the rules and regulations of the Board being approved by
the Governor-in-Council. He considered that this power should
be vested in the Legislative Council.
Accordingly the words "the approval of" were deleted and
the words "submission to" inserted.
Clause 6(d) was deleted on the motion of the Honourable H. D.
Shillingford seconded by the Member for the Western District.
Clause 7(a). A colon was inserted at the end thereof and the
following proviso added-
"Provided that on a written request signed by any
"five members of the Board, the Education Officer shall,









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY NOVEMBER 26, 1951. 253

S"so soon as: is practicable after the receipt thereof, sum-
"mon a special meeting."
SClauee 7 (a). The words "board may at any time otherwise
order" was inserted at the end of this.clause.
Clauue 9. The figure "38" was changed to "37" in the last
line thereof.
Clause 11. The Honourable H.D. Shillingford moved that the
Legislative Council replace Governor-in-Council in this clause.
The Member for the Western District moved the deletion of
the words "unon the recommendation of the Education Board" in
the last line as he did net th'nk that the action of the Legislature
should be conditional on a recommendation of the Board..
Both motions were carried.
The word "Governor" in the marginal note was changed to
"Legislative Council
A full stop was inserted at the end of the third line,
Clause 14(1). The words "an-assisted" in line 2 were deleted
and substituted by the words "a public elementary".
Clause 17 (a), The Member for Roseau thought that in view
of the fact that Lay Teachers would be pensionable officers he did
not think it correct that the dismissal of these officers should rest
with the Education Officer. He thought they should enjoy the
same rights as other Civil Servants.
General discussions followed and then the Council adjourned
for twenty minutes to enable the Hononrable Crown Attorney to
frame an amendment.to this sub-section.
The Council resumed at 12.23 p.m. and decided to defer con-
sideration of this clause to the afternoon session.
Clause 29 (a). The word recognizedd" was inserted between
the words "any" and "secondary" in line 2 thereof.
The member for the Western District moved the deletion of
the words "approved by the Education Board" in line 3 of this
Clause.
The motion was carried.
The words "by the Governor-in-Council '.in line 4 were de-
leted and the figure "37". substituted for the figure "38" in the
last line.
Clzause 19. The figure "38" was changed, to "37" in the last
Jine thereof.
( us, 20 (b).. The words "if required" were inserted be-
tween the words "shall" and "take" in lines 3 and 4 respectively
and the wo d "student" in line 4 was deleted.
Ciau e 21, Toe figure "(1)" was deleted.
The words "by the Governor in Council" in line 5 were de-
leted and-figure "37" substituted for the figure "38" in the last
line.
Cl(.,ise 23 (c). The words "during school hours" were insert-
ed between the words "time" and "to" in the second line.
Clause 25. The words "Governor in" the first line were de-
Seted and the word "Legislative" inserted therefore.
The word "proclamation""in the second line was deleted and
the word "resolution" inserted therefore.
The words "and to vary or revoke such proclamation" in lines
3 and 4 were deleted.
ADJOURNMENT.
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, secodded by the Trea-
surer, the Council adjourned until 2.15 p.m. the same day.
RESUMPTION.
On resumption at 2.15 p.m all members present in the morn-
ing were again present.
Clause 17 which had been deferred for the afternoon session
was considered.









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1951;

The Crown Attorneyi suggested that the following proviso
should be inserted at the end of the Clause:-
"Provided further that all teachers on the pension-
"able establishment shall not be dismissed except in ac-
"cordance with the regulations for the time being in force
"for His Majesty's Colonial service."
This was agreed to.
Clause 30 (1). The words "or the Inspector of Schools" in
the second line were deleted.
The words "or any other officer of the department duly au-
thorised to make enquiries at" were inserted at the end of the
second line.
The words "to enter" in the third line were deleted.
The Member for the Western District was opposed to the
granting of authority to any man to enter a person's home at any
time and particularly so early in the morning. He thought this was
an infringement of the sacredness of one's home. The officer should
be able to obtain all the information required without this intrusion.
The Education Officer explained that the early hours were ir-
serted in the bill for the express purpose of catching parents who
left home very early in the morning and returned late at night
Mr. H. D. Shillingford supported Mr. Winston and thought
that there were other means of ascertaining the information
sought without entering a person's home.
The words "making such enquiries and" were deleted from
the sixth line.
A colon.was substituted for a full stop at the end of this sub-
section.
The following proviso to be inserted at the end of this sub-
section was put to the vote and carried: -
"Provided that no such officer shall have the right to
"enter any house or building without the consent of the
"occupant thereof".
The words "yard, house, building" were changed to "house,
building yard" in line 3.
Clause 30 (2) (a). The word "Inspector" in the second line
was deleted, and the word "the" inserted between the words "or"
and "Education" in the second line. The words "or any other
officer of the department duly authorised" were inserted after the
words "Education Officer."
Clause 30 (2) (b)'. The word "Inspector" in the second line
was deleted and the word 'the" inserted between the words "or"
and "Education Officer". The words "or any other officer of the
department duly authorised" were inserted after the words
"Education Officer".
Clause 30 (2) (c). The words "or Inspectors" in line 2 were
deleted. The word "the" was inserted between the words "or"
and "Education Officer" and the words "or any other officer of
the department duly authorised" were inserted after the words
"Education Officer" in line 3.
Clause 31. was deleted.
The Honourable H.D. Shillingford stated that he was definite-
ly opposed to sections 32 to 37 of. the Bill. He considered these
sections a direct attack on private schools with the purpose of
closing them or preventing any more from opening. Hd felt that
with the system of education brought in the Colony within the
last few years under the Wiseman's scheme, the only salvation of
the Colony as far as education was concerned, was the continu-
ance of private schools. He was of the opinion that the standard
of education was becoming worse every year and that the stand-








-OFFICIAL GAZETTE,/MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26; 1951. 255

ard of education at the Grammar School had been lowered consi-
derably. He further stated that in putting forward the proposals
contained in the Bill, no reason had been given showing where
private schools had been harmful or where they had not done good
work. He felt sure that the demands made that private schools
should conform to certain regulations, had never been met by the
Government Schools. He stated that he had personal experience
within the last year where two girls who had been doing good
work at Colihaut were asked to close their school because they did
not conform with the square space per child.
In conclusion he asked that the whole of Part IX of the Bill
be deleted i e. sections 32-37.
He was supported by the Member for the Northern District.
The Education Officer stated that there was no question of
trying to kill private schools and that since his. arrival he had
rather encouraged those schools. He pointed out to. the Council
that it was on his recommendations that. Government had been
granting a small subsidy to some of them and he assured the Hon.
H.D. Shillingford that the remark about the Colihaut School was
.not a fact.
He told Members that Government was fully aware that until
they could provide sufficient accommodation to set up their own
schools, they could not interfere with the right of the people to do
so, but that i he schools would have to be registered at the Educa-
tion Department to enable the Education Officer to give a report
about them.
Mr. Winston stated that during the term of office of Mr. Wise-
man he sought a small grant for a private school but was turned
down. He felt very grieved later when grants had been made
to two other private schools.
He stated that clause 33 (e) and (f) and () required the pro-
prietors of a private school to conform to certain.amenities which
were non-existent in Government schools. In his opinion this
alone made it impracticable for private schools to operate.
He agreed that there should be some system of control of pri-
vate schools but he was opposed to that control being left entirely
to the Education Board. He thought it should be vested in the
Government.
He cited as an example a person conducting a p-ivate school
and subsequently appealing to Government for assistance. If the
proprietor had not previously obtained the sanction of the Governor
in Council, his application could not be considered.
Mr. Pemberton was of the opinion that if a person were doing
good work irrespective of having previously obtained consent it
would be better to assist him rather than to debar him. After all
the aim sought by all was to educate children living in the remote
parts of the island. He cited Dubic as an example, and stated that
after listening to all the discussions he would like to see all schools
controlled by Government.
The President told the Honourable H.D. Shillingford that his
(Mr. Shillingford's) motion that sections 32-37 be deleted from
the Bill, would have to be put to the vote clause by clause.
The motion that clause 32 renumbered 31 be deleted from the
Bill, was put before the House and lost by 5 votes to 4 votes as
follows:-

BILLS.
The Village Boards Ordinance, 1948. (Continued.)
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, seconded by the Trea-
surer, the Council resolved itself into Committee to continue con-
sideration of this Bill.
(The Social Welfare Officer who had been summoned, joined
the Meeting.)
The President stated that the Bill had been left in Committee
to decide on the number of members to form the Boards. It was
considered that ten was too large and a suggestion made that
Boards should comprise of eight members-three of whom should
be nominated by the Governor.
After general discussion it was decided to adopt the sugges-
tion and that the other five members be elected by the villagers.
The Social Welfare Officer was in agreement with the suggestion.







' The member for the Western District thought it would be a
splendid idea if the Social Welfare Officer were allowed to be a
member of thelvillage councilslor perhaps be co-opted to help in
their deliberations.
The Social Welfare Officer stated that he would be prepared
to attend the meetings but not to vote.
The marginal note to Clause 3 "Proclamation of Village Dis-
trict" was inserted.
Clause 4 (1) was amended to read as follows: "In'every
village district there shall be established a Council consisting of
eight persons three of whom shall be nominated by the Governor
as occasion or vacancy may require, and'five of whom shall be
qualified and elected as hereinafter provided :"
On the suggestion of the Social Welfare Officer, the word
"speak" in Clause 5 (b) was deleted.
The word "District" was inserted after the word "Village"
in line 1 of Clause 5 (d).
The Member forithe Eastern District considered the annual
income qualification for membership on Council, of two hundred
dollars too high. The President suggested one hundred and twenty
dollars. This was agreed to and the words "itwo hundred" in
clause 5 (d) were amended to read "one hundred and twenty."
On the suggestion of the member for the Eastern District,
sub-clauses 6 (1) (a) and 6,(1) (e) were deleted and the remaining
sub-clauses relettered.
Clause 6 (2) was amended to read as follows:-
"No member of a Board shall be disqualified from his
membership if after having tendered for the supply of
any materials for the use of such Council it is found by a
majority of members present and voting that the supply
of such material by such member will be beneficial to the
Council."
The word "Administrator" in line 10 of Clause 7 (d) was de-
leted and the word "Governor" substituted therefore.
The words "twenty pounds" in line 8 of clause 9 were deleted
and the words "forty-eight dollars" substituted therefore.
Clause 16. The Member for Roseau thought that inasmuch as
Government already had Sanitary Inspectors in the villages there
was no need for a Board to appoint its own village overseer. It
would, in some cases, mean duplication of work. He suggested
that all Sanitary Inspectors should be members of the Councils
and being such they were bound to attend to the sanitation of the
villages.
The President thought that the village councils should have a
Clerk, and the Overseer, if appointed, could serve as such.
The Member for Roseau stated that the village councils would
not be in a position to pay for two officers. The expense per force
would fall on the Government. The Village Councils had to func.
tion and the only solution would appear to be close collaboration
between the village councils and the Medical Department.
At this stage the Senior Medical Officer was invited to join
the meeting.
The President gave the Senior Medical Officer the gist of the
discussion that had preceded his invitation to the meeting. ,-
The Senior Medical Officer outlined the procedure now obtain-
ing with regard to sanitation work in the villages.. While his de-
partment had always co-operated in the past and would continue
to do so, yet he did not feel that the Medical Department should
be made solely responsible for the sanitation work in the villages.






As no satisfactory solution could be arrived at, the Committee
agreed to delete clauses 16 and 17.
Clauses 18 to 23 were re-numbered 16 to 22.
The Social Welfare Officer suggested that sub-section (14) of
Clause 18 be re-numbered (15) and a new sub-section (14) be in-
serted to read as follows :-"Suppression and abatement of nuis-
ances."
The Member for the Eastern District enquired about the
keeping of dogs and animals in the villages.
The Member for the Western District felt that there should
be no tax on dogs. ( n the contrary the people should be encourag-
ed to keep these animals on condition that they were kept in a
sanitary way.
Clause 22 (6) was amended to read as follows:-
"All payments from a Village Fund shall be made on claims
"certified by the Chairman and countersigned by one
"other member of the Council."
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, a new clause 23 was
inserted to read as follows:-
"With the sanction of the Governor-in-Council, the Coun-
"cil may (a) contribute towards or undertake any scheme
"or institution for educational, recreational or charitable
"purposes connected with and for the benefit of the vil-
"lage district; (b) acquire by lease, purchase or otherwise
"lands and buildings of any part thereof for any purpose
"of public utility."
A marginal note to the new clause was inserted to read "Power
to contribute, etc."
The wor-is "five pounds" in lines 4 and 5 of Clause 28 were
deleted and the words "twenty four dollars" substituted therefore.
The word "speak" in sub-section (c) of Clause 30 was deleted.
The word "district" was inserted after the word "village'"in
Clause 30 (d).
The words "ten" and "thirty" occurring in lines 1 and 8 res-
pectively of Clause 31 were amended to read "thirty" and "ninety"
respectively.
The word "ten" in line 3 of Clause 32 (1) was amended to
"fourteen".
The word "ten" in line 1 of Clause 32 (2) was amended to
"fourteen".
Clause 37 was deleted and the remaining clauses etc., re-
numbered.
Clause 38 (1) re-numbered 37 (1) was amended to read as fol-
lows:-
"Notwithstanding the provisions of any law to the con-
"trary, the term of office of a Council in existence at the
"time of the commencement of this Ordinance shall ex-
"pire on such day as the Governor in Council by Proclama-
"tion published in the Guzette may declare, and the term
"of office of each subsequent Council shall unless the
"Council be sooner dissolved be of three years duration.
"At the expiration of every such period the nominated
"and elected members'shall vacate their seats, but shall
"be eligible for re-nomination or re-election."
The words "for the purpose of enabling him to be registered
as a voter" occurring in lines 3 and 4 of clause 59 (8) were deleted.
The words "two hundred pounds" in the last line of clause 63
were amended to read "nine hundred and sixty dollars"






The words "one hundred pounds" in lines 6 and 7 of Clause
66 (2) were amended to read "four hundred and eighty dollars".
The words "two hundred pounds" in lines 6 and 7 of Clause

On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Bill was read a third time and passed.
The Education Ordinance. 1948.
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, seconded by the Trea-
surer, a Bill entitled "An Ordinance to repeal and replace the
Elementary Act (L.I. Cap. 86) as amended, and the Studentships
Act (L.I. Cap. 87) and to provide for Secondary Education in the
Colony" was read a first time.
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, seconded by the Trea-
surer, the Bill was read a second time.
The Member for the Western District addressed the Council
against the Bill as follows :--
This Ordinance, in its essentials, is unacceptable to this Coun-
cil. Education now is a subject which concerns vitally the whole
island. We are convinced that the system of education obtaining






for the past eight or nine years has reduced it to the lowest level
in the history of the island. This statement is based on facts
which have been brought to the notice of this Council from the
time of Mr. Wiseman's regime. The standard of present day
education can best be illustrated by a question Mr. Shillingford
put to a pupil of the 5th standard at the Colihaut Government
School which could not be answered. The question was "What is
the difference between sixty-six and five and a half dozens ?". It
cannot be argued that this is an isolated case. On the contrary it
should be taken as a fair indication of the low pass to which the
school has been reduced and I have no hesitation in saying that
the same is true of schools throughout the island.
I was informed during Mr. Wiseman's time that the age-
grouping system had been a failure. A certain Head Teacher had
cited the instance of a boy, 14 years old who could barely sign his
name and yet was put in the 4th standard, with the result that the
other pupils in that standard had to lag behind until this boy was
able to catch up.
Mr. Wiseman had explained this system to them but he did it
in such a way as to show that measures would be introduced tend-
ing to bring about better results. Mr. Shillingford and the Senior
Member had declined to agree to this new system.
Since that time I have reasons to say that the educational
standard was declining instead of advancing.
I would have thought that this Education Bill would be a mea-
sure to arrest the present decline and promote the true education
of the youth of this island, but instead, it merely introduces a mass
of regulations with no change whatsoever in the present chaotic
situation. The Bill seeks to maintain and perpetuate the aims and
objects which Mr. Wiseman had in view and which had been con-
demned.
The policy of the Education Department has been allied with
the recommendations of the West India Royal Commission and the
proposals of Mr. Hammond, the Educational Adviser,' ignoring
basic principles and fundamentals. Is that how we intend to for-
ward education and lift the people from the abyss of ignorance to
which they have been sunk by an ill-advised and unworkable sys-
tem ? This question can only be answered by a close scrutiny of
the clauses of this Bill which clearly shows that the promoters of
this Bill were actuated not by any motive for the advancement of
learning of the youth of the island, but purely and simple to keep
in step with recommendations made elsewhere, forgetting that
every community has its own peculiar needs. It is absurd to say
that because this system has succeeded somewhere it is bound to
succeed here.
The Eugenia Charles scholarship furnishes another example
of our retrograde step in education where it has not been possible
to award the scholarship because none of the competitors came up
to the required standard which in itself is already very low.
The most outstanding feature of this Bill is the Education
Board. This Board, appointed by the Administrator and of which
he is Chairman, arrogates to itself executive powers exercised in
an indirect manner. The Bill goes further and makes the decisions
of the Executive Council conditional upon the recommendations of
the Board.
The Bill takes no account of the co-operation of parents and
ignores the fundamental principle that parents and guardians have
a right to determine the sort of education their children are to re-
ceive.
When we read clause 38 vis-a-vis clause 11, we are confronted
with a problem-Why should private schools be discontinued and






not allowed to function ? I am of the opinion that private school
are the salvation of this Colony and, consequently, when I was a
member of the Education Board I always extended my support to
any project affecting private schools.
I refuse to believe that this trend of lowering the standard of
education can be thrust upon us with complacency. The time has
come when a stand has to he made. 4
If I was convinced that this Bill touched the fringes of educa-
tion with a view to raising the standard of education I would sup-
port the Bill, but I am solidly of the opinion th it if the Bill is
passed in its present form it will be a case of "' the second stage
being made worse than the first." There is no guarantee of con-
tinuity. Mr. Maurice might or might not be here to continue the
scheme. If another Education Officer is appointed are we to start
all over again ? These are disturbing facts.
To have an Advisory Board coming forward in the face of
strong opposition and suggesting that private schools shall not be
set up unless they so advise is an interference which will not be
tolerated by this Council and the Board should be told so in no un-
certain terms.
The record of private schools in this island is one of which any
country should be proud. The Convent High School holds an
enviable record. The standard attained by this institution has yet
to be emulated by the Grammar School Yet the cost to Goverr -
ment of maintaining that school is considerably less than that of
the Grammar School.
These schools which have served the island's needs so faith-
fully and at such low cost to Government, turning out the future
men and women of the community should not be left to the whims
and fancies of an unpredictable Board. I reject the idea of such
schools, whose records are eloquent testimony of their worth to the
community, being subjected to the vagaries of such a Board.
I think there is no point in going into details and making
amendments. The Bill as it stand; must be condemned. I am
authorised by Mr. Shillingford who is unavoidably absent, to say
that he (Mr. Shillingford) is against this Bill. In the interest of
education which is nearest to the heart of all Dominicans I am
moving that the Bill be read six months hence. I have no doubt
that in adopting this course, I am voicing the feelings of all those
who have the cause of education at heart.. I feel certain that
Honourable Members will support me and thus earn the lasting
thanks not only of those whose cause they are now fighting but
also that of generations unborn.
Honourable Member for Roseau. This is a matter on which I
do not feel inclined to speak. The Education Board has vetted the
Bill and approved of it and it can remain as it stands. Every time
I come to this Council and Education is being debated, I hear
changes which are the opposite of what I hear before the meetings.
It is extremely difficult for me to know the views of anybody
about the Education Bill. Some time ago, I came here with a pro.
position to establish a Government Secondary School for girls.
Before doing so I talked it over with every member of Council and
they agreed. Yet, when it came up in Council, they all voted
against it.
Up to 1940 education was entirely in the hands of the Church
It was in the hands of the Roman Catholic and the Wesleyan. It
proved unsatisfactory. The Members of the Legislative Council
fought and succeeded in getting Government schools established in
the face of strong opposition, and now Mr. Winston is asking that
we should reverse this policy and hand over education heart and
soul. This I cannot and will not agree to.






I admit that 950% of the people are Catholics, but I can assure
Mr. Winston that a large majority are not against the Bill. They
will not come in the open to express their views for fear of ex-
communication, but I am expressing the views of these people.
I am expressing my own views when I say that we cannot
hand over education entirely to any church. I think Government
should retain control of education.
Honourable Member for the Southern Distict.
I am not here to encourage any controversy but one thing I
am bound to say is that I do not think anyone is satisfied with the
educational achievements of students at the present time. It
would be wrong to sit down complacently and let matters continue
in this sad state.
When the age-grouping system was proposed, many of us con-
demned it. As I had predicted, it resulted incomplete failure. It
requires no stress of imagination to know that when dull boys are
placed in the same class with brighter and more advanced boys,
the dollars retard the progress of the intelligent ones.
There is another aspect to this matter. This island is 95%
Roman Catholic. If the Roman Catholic authorities were respon-
ble and instrumental in the proper and successful education of our
youth, their work must be appreciated. I am prepared to say the
same for anyone.
In spite of all that has been said and done, I do not think, at
present, Government is able to build schools in all the remote
places to serve the needs of the people, and I would gladly wel-
come any such school built by any denomination.
This Bill is a very important one and I would prefer to have
it discussed by a full house. I would like to see it postponed to a
meeting when Mr. Shillingford, now absent, will be present and
he will have an opportunity of enriching the debate with his wide
experience. We cannot hurry through this Bill as it requires
careful thought and consideration.
The Honourable Member for the Eastern Dis'rict.
The Government is trying, as far as I can see, to keep control
not only over the Roman Catholic schools but over any private
school. Surely, the Governor-in-Council must keep control, as
many people may come here and want to start schools, and these
people might not be qualified to do so. I don't know if that point
is appreciated. We are not going to oppose any private schools
that are helpful or useful and I would like to know whether this
Bill is being opposed on religious grounds.
The Honourable Member for the Northern District.
After reading over this Bill I am compelled to second the
motion of Mr. Winston. When I read clause 33 paragraph 1 I can
come to no other conclusion but that private schools are the target
for this Ordinance. This clause requires proprietors of private
schools to furnish the Education Officer with a return showing
certain particulars and facilities which were non-existent in many
Government schools in the island. I wonder why ? The Member
for Roseau introduced the Catholic population into the debate and
it become apparent then that the Catholic Church was considered
the body sponsoring private schools.
I do not agree with clause 38. The people should have a voice
in the affairs of the Colony. One should he able to decide for
himself the particular school to which he wishes to send his or her
child. The Education Board is usurping the authority of the
parents and compelling them to send their children to the school
they decide upon. Sir Arthur Grimble in his address to the Legis-
lative Council of St. Lucia on the 7th September, 1947, and parti-
cularly in that part of the address dealing with denomination






schools, made it abundantly clear that the people's representatives
were to be the final judges upon such issues. By giving the
Governor-in-Council the wide powers sought under this ordinance
they are being denied their legitimate rights. I maintain that the
Bill be read six months hence.
Honourable C. J. L. Dupiany. I agree with most of the points
made by the Member for the Western District but 1 do not agree
that the Bill be real six months hence. I think amendments
should be introduced where necessary.
I object to two remarks made by the Member for Roseau, Mr.
C. A. H. Dupigny. Firstly, the Honourable Member stated that
all members had agreed to the establishment of a Government
Secondary School for girls. I was never approached on that sub-
ject and never agreed to it. Secondly, that large numbers of
Catholics are against the continuance of Catholic Schools. There
is no evidence to support that statement. There might be a few
discontented Catholics who said so but that is certainly n It the
view cf the vast majority.
The Honourable Member for the Western District. I wish to
correct a statement made by the Senior Member (Mr. C. A. H.
Dupigny). Mr. Dupigny seems to think that I am allowing the
religious aspect to dominate the issue but I wish to correct that
wrong impression. I never said that control of education should
be vested in any denomination because I do not believe that that
should be. The control of education should be vested in the
Government. My objection to the Bill is that in its essentials it
does not take any measure which convinces me that education will
be advanced. It is an invidious method of removing control of
education from the Legislative Council and vesting it in the
Governor-in-Council acting upon the recommendations of an Ad-
visory Board.
I am convinced that private schools are essential to the island
and I adhere to my motion that the Bill be read six months hence.
The Honourable Crown Attorney.
I am very grateful to the Member for the Western District
for clarifying the grounds on which he has moved his resolution.
Apparently his objection is twofold. What he has been pleased
to describe as the assumption of executive powers by the Educa-
tion Board is totally erroneous, because any views of the Education
Board will have to be approved by him and his colleagues sitting
around this table. The Education Board cannot legislate. I take
clause 11 as an example that the Governor in-Council is the ulti-
mate and final authority with power to reject the recommenda-
tions of the Board.
The Honourable Member has objected to what lie terms the
"objectionable features of compulsory education." He insisted
that for any system of education to be successful in Dominica,
there must be co-operation between the parents, children, and
teachers but he is unmindful of the fact that there is so little co-
operation here and it is precisely for these people that compulsory
education is essential.
As far as private schools are concerned there is no intention
in any particular clause of the Bill to control them. The main
idea is that if one wishes to establish a new private school and
qualify for assistance from Government funds, he will have to ob-
tain the prior approval of the Governor-in-Council.
The Honourable Member states that he sees no measures in
the Bill which indicates the furthering of education, One has to
start somewhere. The Bill is merely in the nature of an experi-
ment and will be built upon according to the system of education
desired to be established in Dominica. You mast commence with







an Ordinance and putting off for six months is merely putting off
the evil day. The proper procedure is to examine all the clauses
.and then include what is wanting and necessary for the further-
ing of education. If members wish the Legislative Council to be
the final authority that can be incorporated in the Bill.
The President suggested that the motion by the Honourable
Member for the Western District that the Bill be read six months
'hence, be put to the vote.
The motion was put to the vote and lost by five votes to three
votes :
NOES. A YES.
'The Honourable Crown Attorney, Honourable Member for the
Treasurer, Southern District.
,, Member for Roseau, Honourable Member for the
,, ,, Member for the Western District.
Eastern District, Honourable Member for the
,, ., C. J. L. Dupigny. Northern District.
On the motion of the Crown Attorney, seconded by the Trea-
surer, the Statutory Rules and Orders were suspended to allow
the Bill to be proceeded with through all its remaining stages at
the same sitting.
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the Bill
clause by clause.
President: I am wondering how far we could take this Bill,
It is now 3.45 p.m. and as this is a most important measure, I
think we should consider it most carefully. I am sure that the
aim of everyone here, no matter what his religious persuasions
are, is to see that our children get the best possible education.
There is, in this educational policy room for Church and State.
There is, to my mind, no reason why we cannot work together in
perfect harmony. This is the attitude in which we ought to tackle
this problem before us. We have it now in Committee for the
second reading. My personal opinion is that it is certainly not a
measure that should be postponed. It is the basis on which we
have to build. I don't think we are going to get through this
afternoon and nobody would favour a meeting tomorrow (Satur-
day).
General discussions followed and it was agreed to adjourn the
meeting for the 4th and 5th of January, 1949.
The Bill was left at the second reading and the Council re-
sumed.
REPLY TO ADDRESS.
The Honourable Member for Roseau asked leave to present
the Reply to the Administrator's Address.
Agreed to.
(For Reply see Oficial Gazette of the 28th December, 1946.)
The Reply was read by the Honourable Member.
The Treasurer, seconded by the Crown Attorney, moved that
the Reply be entered in and do form part of the minutes of the
Council.
The motion was carried.
RESOLUTIONS.
On the motion of the Treasurer, seconded by the Crown At-
torney, the Council resolved itself into Committee to consider Sup-
plementary Votes for 1945, 1946, 1947 and 1948, notice of which
had previously been given.
The Council resolved itself into Committee to consider the
Resolutions.
The Member for the Western District remarked that the
Schedules were being passed without debate on the understand-
ing that they had already been passed by Finance Committee.
The President assured him that that was so.







The Schedules of Votes passed through the Committee stage
without amendment and the Council resumed.
The Treasurer, seconded by the Crown Attorney, moved the
adoption of the following Resolutions :-
RESOLVED that this Council.hereby approves of the expen-
diture set forth in the schedule hereto annexed and amounting to
Nine Thousand Nine Hundred and Twenty One Pounds in addition
to the sums which have been provided in the Estimates for the
