ment and Welfare grant will contribute
$612,360.
A grant of $288,000 is made to Dominica

insular road. This is an interim grant

$571,000. The whole operation has how.

vides for the appointment of an additional
geologist to the Geological Survey Depart-
ment. This department is now carrying out
surveys in the Windward Islands. and the

of copper minerals in Grenada, cement in
St. Vincent, and sulphur deposits in
Dominica and St. Lucia.
Water supplies in Antigua are to be
improved under a scheme costing $77.760
Development of existing water supplies
and exploration for new underground

encourage trade unions to pay attention
to the( education of their members.
A grant of $19,200 will enable the gov-
ernment of St. Lucia to enage an expert

$4, 23 for nMontserrat. A grant of $3,019
