OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, 1952. 175

On the motion of the Acting Crown Attorney, seconded by the
Acting Treasurer, the Standing Rules and Orders were suspended
to allow the Bill to be proceeded with through all its remaining
stages at the same sitting.
On the motion of the Acting Crown Attorney, seconded by the
Acting Treasurer. the Council resolved itself into Committee to
consider the Bill clause by clause.
The Member for the Western District moved that under
Clause 3 (1) the term "Governor" should be amended to "Gov-
ernor-in-Council" and the following words added "of which two
shall be elected members of the Legislative Council." He though.
that this amendment would be conducive to giving the Transport
Board a representative character, which it would lack if it were
comprised of officials only.
The Member for the Southern District supported the motion
and said that as a representative of the people the elected mem-
ber would take a keener interest.
(Mr. Aird came in and took his seat.)
It was decided that the term "Governor" in the last line of
Clause 3 (1) should be made to read "Governor-in-Council of
which two shall be elected members of the Legislative Council."
The term "Governor" in the second line of Clause 3 (6) and
in the first line f' Clause 4 (1) (-) was amended to read "Goern-
or-in-Council."
Clause 14 (1) ('). The Third Nominated Member argued
that 5 taos was too small to represent the gross weight of a lorry
as some lorries weighed a, much as 34 tons.
The Member for Roseau pointed out that the main object of
the Bill was to restrict the overloading of lorries.
The Third Nominated Member agreed that overloading of
lorries was undesirable but that he referred to some of the lo- ries
here which when loaded exceeded 5 tons and were not then con-
sidered overloaded. If the maximum weight had to be 5 tons a
good many of the lorries here would have to be condemned, and
that. was far from being the intention of the Bill. He felt that it
was not the weight of the lorry that was dangerous but the over-
loading.
The Member for the Roseau District felt, on the other hand,
t'at unless some restriction was put on the weight of the lorries
immediately, with the development of the banana industry, the
Grand Bay road, for instance, would become a definite death
track. There have been no accidents on that road simply because
there has not been much traffic. The moment there was heavy
traffic, some of the present lorries would be too cumbersome and
dangerous for the roads.
The Members for the Southern District and the Western Dis-
tern District respectively spoke in support of the Third Nominat-
ed Member's arguments. It was felt that with the advent of the
banana trade bigger trucks would be needed and Government
would have to see that the roads were widened to suit them.
The Third Nominated Member said that the lorries they had
at present should not be put out of commission. If the Grand Bay
road had proved too narrow for the larger trucks, then such trucks
would be denied that road, but why should such lorries be put out
of commission for such a road as the Roseau Canefield road for
instance.
The Superintendent of Police, who was present at the meet-
ing, explained that there were regulations exempting present
vehicles from the restriction as to gross weight, and so there
would be no question of scrapping any vehicles which were here
already.








S OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY,: JUNE 23, 1952.


The Third Nominated Member, was of the opinion, however,
that 5 tons should be changed to 6 tons as this exemption which
was spoken of would give the present holders of large tracks a
decided advantage over those who had smaller trucks. He said
that it had been admitted that the 3 ton size lorries in use at pre-
ssnt had not been any danger to life so he saw no reason for any
restriction.
The Member for Roseau District wished it to be recorded that
he was opposed to allowing heavy trucks on.the road. The exist-
ing heavy trucks on the road would be a serious source of danger
as soon as traffic increased, They have not.had many deathsbe-
cause there had been little traffic. He felt that the life of tie peo-
ple came first and money after.
The Acting Treasurer thought it would be unwise to change
5 tons to 6 tons without getting technical advice. The capacity
of the bridges should be ascertained. The Director of Works
should first be consulted to ascertain whether the bridges and
roads of the Colony could stand the weight.
After general discussion it was decided to delete the words
"5 tons" in the second line of Clause 14 (1) (a) and to substitute
the words "6 tons", the Member for Roseau and the Acting Trea-
surer dissenting. The Second Nominated Member brought up the
question of the new light weight vehicles known as Corgies"
which had been introduced here. He suggested that some special
provision should be made in the regulations for them as these
vehicles were not considered when the Bill was being drafted. He
felt that the age limit should not be 16 and the license fee should
not be as great as that of a motor cycle,
The Acting Treasurer was of the opinion that though the
"Corgi" was a miniature cycle, it had the speed, and so any one
using it under the age of 16 might cause trouble. He had no ob-
jections about the license fee.
it was decided that the license fee would be considered when
the license charges under "first Schedule" were being considered.
On the. motion of the Acting Crown Attorney, the word
"Colony" in the fifth line of the second paragraph of Clause 26
(1) was substituted by the word "Presidency".
Clause 28. The Third Nominated Member suggested that a
sub-section should be added to provide for a Learner's License.
It was decided to add a subsection (d) to Clause 28 to read as fol-
lows :-
(d) "A Learner's License" which shall entitle the holder
thereof to drive such motor vehicle as is specified in the
license for a period of three months."
On the motion of the Second Nominated MIember thp word
"eighteen" in the second line of Clause 33 (1) (b) was amended
to "sixteen", and the word "twenty-one" in the second line-of
Clause 33 (1) (c) was amended to "eighteen".
On the suggestion of the Third Nominated Member the fol-
lowing words were inserted after the word "purposes" in the
third line of Clause 74: "or by doctors on emergency calls."
After much discussion the following amendments were made
to the "First Schedule" of the Bill:
Item 1 was amended to read as follows:
"1. Motor cycle above 1 horse power .. .. $9.60"
A new item, item 2, was inserted to read as follows:
"2. Motor cycle, 1 horse power or below .. $4.80"
Items 2 to 6 were re-numbered 3 to 7.
Item 6, now item 7, was amended to read as follows:
"7. Animal drawn vehicles, for each wheel 489"
A new sub-section to item 9 was added to read as follows :
"9 (e) Learner's Licence .. .. .. 60"
On the:motion of the Acting Crown Attorney, the Committee
rose and the Council resumed, and the President reported thatthe
Bill had passed through Committee with amendments.

The Griffin Pension Act, 1939 (Repeal) Ordinance, 1949
The Acting Treasurer, seconded by the Acting Crown Attor-
ney moved that the Bill entitled "'An Ordinance to repeal the
Griffin Pension Act, 1939" be read a second time.
The Member for Roseau moved that the Bill be rejected as he
considered,it was the most immoral Bill presented to the House.
He explained the circumstances which brought about the introduc-
tion of the Act at the time and said that the object of the Act was
to insure Dr. Griffin against loss when he subsequently retired, as







178 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, 1952

he had left a 750 a year job to accept a 375 a year one on ac-
count of ill-health. He said that he would oppose the Bill on prin-
ciple because whenever there was a loss Government had to stand
it but whenever there was a gain the officer always got it. He ex-
plained that in similar cases Dr. Griffin will be used as a prece-
dent.
The Third Nominated Member reminded the Member for
Roseau that Dr. Griffin was a very sick man when he left Domi-
nica, and that was the reason he asked to be transferred to St.
Kitts.
The Member for Roseau could not see how a very sick man
could accept a job which would involve so much private practice.
The Members for the Western District and the Southern Dis-
trict respectively opposed the Bill on principle. They maintained
it would be creating a precedent. It was improper to make rules
to suit the private man. They felt that Government had beon
liberal to him by passing a law to suit him.
On a question from the Third Nominated member the Acting
Treasurer said that the financial implication to Dominica was 145.
The Third Nominated Member said that Dr. Griffin was ob-
viously overworked because the job he did was done by two doc-
tors.
The President reminded members of the very good work that
was done by Dr. Griffin. He informed members that Dr. Griffin
was a very sick and over-worked man when he left for St. Kicts.
His health improved so much there that he was able to qualify as
a result of which he was made Federal Officer. He thought it
would show great ingratitude to refuse Dr. Griffin's request.
The Member for Roseau objected to the word "ingratitude"
and stated that Dr. Griffin was asking for something to which in
his opinion, he was not entitled.
The President suggested that the motion moved by the Acting
Treasurer and seconded by the Acting Crown Attorney, that the
Bill be read a second time, be put to the vote.
The motion was put to the vote and carried by four votes to
three viz :
Ayes: The Acting Crown Attorney
The Acting Treasurer
The Second Nominated Member
The Third Nominated Member
Noes: The Member for Roseau
The Member for the Southern District

STATUTORY RULES AND ORDERS.
Public Health Regulations.
The Member for the Western District suggested that the Pub-
lic Health regulations should be left over for another meeting as
it was considered most important and the reading of them should
be done thoroughly and so would take a long time.
The President said that they had been held up since 1947 and
he was anxious that they should go through.
The Third Nominated Member in supporting the Member for
the Western District said that in such Regulations local conditions








180 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, 1952.

should be taken into consideration, and suggested that they be
taken in Finance Committee where they could be thrashed out
(The Member for Roseau came in and took his seat.)
The Member for the Southern District was of the same opin-
ion. The Regulations were complicated and with thetimeat their
disposal he felt it would be impossible to go through with them.
The Member for Roseau said that he did not know exactly
what had gone before he came in and took his seat but begged
that these regulations be considered favourably. He said that
they had been gone into very thoroughly by the Board of Health.
Dr. Younglao, the Senior Medical Officer, took a particular interest
in it and all the clauses were thoroughly thrashed out and approv-
ed by the Board. The Central Board of Health was unable to carry
out work until these regulations came into force There was go-
ing to be a certain amount of development and he was against de-
velopment taking place under the old regulations. He said that it
was true the standard required by these regulations was a little
above what they had been accustomed to but Dominica should not
remain in its backwardness for ever. Tne insanitary conditions
under which some people had to live cost them their health and
so it was important that these regulations be given the effect of
law.
The President explained that the Members were not against
the regulations coming into force but that they wanted mrre time
to consider them.
The Member for Roseau was glad to hear that they were not
being thrown out and had no objection to their being deferred.
It was agreed that the S.R. & O. be considered in Finance Com-
mittee and brought up at the next meeting of Legislative Council
HYDRO-ELECTRIC AGREEMENT.
The President informed Members that the Hydro-Electric
Agreement was before the Council for discussion and ratification.
The Third Nominated Member said that in spite of the objec-
tions that had been raised against the Hydro-Electric Agreement,
he personally found nothing wrong with it. He found it a good
idea and a means of improving conditions. Doubts and fears had
been raised in his mind, however, due to information, which he had
received from an elected member who was in London, informing
him that at meetings held by the Secretary of State at which His
Honour the Administrator and the Assistant Government Secre-
tary had been present, it was decided that unless members bowed
to the wishes of the Colonial Development Corporation, plans for
road development would be cancelled. Any development, parti-
cularly road development, was contingent on their giving free
and unhampered access to the Colonial Development Corporation.
He was of the opinion that when members start with that atmos-
phere of threat and distrust they could not be too happy. If the
Colonial Office was satisfied that the Colonial Development Cor-
poration is a good thing for Dominica there should be no threat.
He pointed out that the grant for development had been promised
long before the Colonial Development Corporation had agreed to
come to Dominica and that although the Colonial Development
Corporation is good for the island, they would not be able to ac-
cept it unless the President could confirm whether or not that
was the attitude adopted by the Colonial Office.
The Member for Roseau said that he had no intention to speak
on the merits or demerits of the agreements and that if it came to
a division he would abstain from voting. It appeared to him, how-
ever, that the Legislature from time to time laid down a definite
precedent and forgot it soon after. He personally deprecated the
idea of any threat whatever, and was glad to hear that the Third
Nominated Member felt the same way. He reminded Members,
however, that he had been a victim to threats when some time ago
he asked for an amendment to the Roseau Town Council Ordinance








OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, 1952 181

No. 23 of 1937, and he was told that unless Land and House Tax
was increased they would not allow a trade licence in town. He
felt that the Council should not threaten weaker bodies and then
take offence when stronger bodies threatened them.
The Member for the Southern District stood in support of the
Third Nominated Member. He said that he had had information
locally to substantiate what the member said in so much that he
had gone to the extent of writing about it in the local papers. It
had been said that unless they accepted the demands of the Co-
lonial Development Corporation, road development would only be
a promise which would never materialise. He raid what was
worse was the fact that he had been made to understand that cer-
tain roads leading to estates that would be owned by the Colonial
Development Corporation would be given priority, whereas places
with existing cultivations would be neglected.
He said further that there was another snag in he contracts.
The Colonial Development Corporation had prepared three separ-
ate agreements for the Hydro-electric plant, the Ice making Plant
and the Packing Shed and it was their intention to start working
the Ice-Plant first. He was of the opinion that those three plants
should work as one unit.
It gave him a certain amount of uneasiness when told that
plans for development would be withheld unless members accepted
the Colonial Development Corporation plans as they were given
them. It showed a lack of equity and justice and he was convinced
tha' such a word as "Democra y" should be abolished from the
English dictionary as the word did not exist.
The President said that he was not certain whether what he
would say would help but what he did know was that the Secretary
of State was convi, ced that the only salvation for Dominica would
be the influx of outside capital in Dominica. That had been the
chief thing operating in the mind of the Secretary of State and
although it may look as if members had been threatened he was
fully convinced, and was sure that they were convinced also, that
outside capital was essential to the development of Dominica and
should come into the island.
The Member for the Western District expressed dissatisfac-
tion at the introduction by the Member for Roseau into the serious
problem under discussion of "that silly and confusingquestion' of
the Roseau Town Council. He was of the opinion that it had noth-
ing to do with the problem before the House and these interfer-
ences took away from the Council that sense of influence and force
which it should have. He said that they were there to discuss
arrangements and solve a problem which, in its importance, is
unrivalled in ihe history of the Colony, and that was, whether or
not the threat held out by the Colonial Office, as inferred in a let-
ter written by Mrs. Napier, was true or not.
(The Second Nominated Member came in and took his seat).
He said that the first bomb-shell had not come with Mrs.
Nal.ier's letter. His Honour, Mr. Arrowsmith, had told a mem-
ber of Council that in the event of members not accepting the
Colonial Development Corporation on the terms on which they in_
tended coming to Dominica, there would be no exptndit ie rn
roads. That declaration might have been regarded as absurd
loyalty by His Majesty's representative to His Majesty's Govern-
ment, but when those things were substantiated by statements
front a person qualified to know, the whole set up was changed.
He declared that they had been asked by the Colonial Office to ac-
cede to the request of the Colonial Development Corporation on
the understanding that if they did not do so the monies promised
for the development of Dominica--everything which appeared in
the Sketch Plan-would be disallowed.







182 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY JUNE 23, 1952

He asked whether any man nurtured on British Democracy
who had been told that all men were born equal and all men had
the same protection under the British Empire could accept such
treatment. He was of the opinion that the Colonial Development
Corporation was a private firm whose interest was guided by the
profit they could make and he informed Members that he had
once told Mr. Creech Jones that the only time that Dominica saw
a British Flag on a ship was when it came to load the produce of
L. Rose & Co., which was an English Firm.
He reminded members that Dominica had previously been
blocked by the Ministry of Food with respect to lime juice, and
now that the people expected salvation through offers from 'an
Irish Firm to purchase bananas, the island was being denied road
development. He was convinced that the Banana Industry would
be curtailed considerably if there were no roads, and he felt certain
that His Honour had forwarded information to His Excellency for
transmission to the Secretary of State to the effect that ?0,0,0
bunches of bananas, which had brought in 8,000 additional money
in the island, had already been shipped. He could not see how
the Colonial Office in the face ef those reliable facts could utter
such a threat. The only apparent explanation was that the Colo-
nial Office's sole interest was the development of its own people.
He thought that only a man who had lost the essence of manhood
could bow to such treatment as was being meted out by the Colo-
nial Office.
He was strongly ,in agreement with the Third Nominated
Member and would not accept any measure which in any way could
be considered a threat. The strong sense of rebellion in them as
human beings made them rebel against actions of that kind and
he asked that the President cable the views of the Legislative
Council of Dominica to the Secretary of State. There was also
another point he wanted clarified and that was whether the re-
ference made to roads in Mrs. Napier's letter referred to the re-
construction of the road to Laudat and the Waterfalls or whether
it was the intention of the Colonial Office to pull away from Domi-
nica all road development upon which the whole structure of the
economic rehabilitation of the country was based.
The Member for the Northern District said that it was really
not agreeable to be threatened, but although he did not admire
the policy adopted by the Colonial Office, he could not stand in the
way of the Colonial Development Corporation coming to the island
to help the community. There was no doubt that Dominica was in
urgent need of assistance and this need had been placed before the
Colonial Office continually. Dominica, being a grant-in-aid Colony,
the Secretary of State decided that the only way he could push
through development to benefit the island to any considerable.ex-
tent was by acquiring outside capital. This he succeeded in doing
by means of the Colonial Development Corporation and the Mem-
ber did not see why objections should be raised to delay the ad-
vent of the Corporation any longer.
The President did not feel capable of adding anything to
what he had said but thought it not quite fair for Members to say
that they were expected to accept the Colonial Development Cor-
poration on any terms proposed by the Corporation, because cer-
tain terms laid down by the Corporation had been subsequently
changed as a result of objections from members. The Secretary
of State's attitude did not amount to a threat as members assert-
ed. Dominica had experienced many years of adverse conditions,
years of bad luck; the lack of roads had always been Dominica's
handicap and it was only since the advent of the Banana Trade
that things had brightened up a bit. The Secretary of State, hav-
ing been approached for assistance, had come to the conclusion
that outside help was the only salvation for Dominica and with-
out outside capital nothing could be done.









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, 1952 183

The Third Nominated Member expressed appreciation at the
very nice manner in which the President stated the case. He said
that it was an admitted fact that as Dominica was the most back-
ward of the West Indies it could not be expected to make progress
without outside capital, but what was before the Council was not
that the Secretary of State had declared that Dominica was in need
of outside capital but the threat that unless members acceeded
to the Colonial Development Corporation's request, all plans for
roads would be cancelled.
The President reminded members that when the Develop-
ment plan was being considered there was a hiatus before an an-
nouncement could be made. He explained that the reason for it
was because the Secretary of State was convinced that only out-
side capital would do Dominica any good, and it was only when
the Secretary of State could get the Colonial Development Cor-
poration to agree to come to Dominica that an announcement
had been made.
Tne Third Nominated Member said that though he saw no
other way out but to accept the Colonial Development Corporation,
he felt that the powers of the members of Legislative Council
should not be curtailed. He pointed out that the first agreement
with the Colonial Development Corporati n stated that the Cold
Storage, Ice-making Plant and the Packing Shed would be worked
as one unit. Now separate agreements had been made for each
unit. He was totally against this agreement as the Ice-making
Plant would surely run at a great profit, whereas the Packing Shed
would be very expensive to work. He was convinced that there
was a decided advantage in the unification of the three units which
would be lost by separating them If the three units were worked
as one the loss sustained by the one plant could be covered by the
profit derived from the other. He said that it was as a result of
discussion held between Messrs. Roddam and Gaynor and the
Fruit Trade Committee, at which both parties had agreed that
some modifications were necessary to the agreement, that those
three units had been divorced from each other.
The President tried to convince the Member that the units
were divorced before Roddam and Gaynor's visit, and that the
Packing Shed Agreement, being more difficult, was taken over to
England to be debated and settled there.
The Member for the Western District said that his views ad
already been expressed but that he wished to stress that the
Council had been more than accommodating. Members had done
everything to carry out the directions of the Secretary of State
and when they were on the verge of finalising everything they re-
ceived convincing information that a meeting at which His hon-
our Mr. Arrowsmith and h's Assistant Government Secretary, Mr.
Pinard, were present, it was decided that unless members agreed
to do everything that the Colonial Development Corporation de-
manded, even if it came to the Company taking charge of this
country and running it, the necessary funds for implementing the
repairs to the roads of Dominica, essential to the development and
economic stability of this community, would not be granted.
He said that members were as much desirous of the Colonial
Development Corporation coming into this country as the Secre-
tary of State. They were fully convinced that the Colonial Deve-
lopment Corporation would benefit this country, but they would
not be robbed of their birthright. They had a right to direct the
affairs of their country and would not allow 6 to 7 Englishmen
to come out to the island and have the economic domination of it.
The President asked members whether they were in favour of
the ratification of the Agreement. He said that he had received
a cable from the Secretary of State informing him that in a letter
he would receive from Mr. Smith there would be certain suggest-
ed amendments to the Hydro-Electric Agreement, and if Members
were in favour of ratifying the agreement the amendments could
be considered at a meeting of Finance Committee.









184


N-


OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY JUNE 23, 1952

Members were not in favour and the Third Nominated Mem-
ber suggested that when the amendments were received an emer-
gency Legislative Council meeting could be called.
Tne Member for the Western District, however, moved the
following Resolution :--
"Firstly, prior to the consideration of these Agreements,
in view of certain disclosures we have had to the effect that
unless we agreo to the Schemes as submitted by Colonial De-
velopment Corporation, the Road Development Programme
would not be implemented, we demand that a denial or other-
wise be obtained from the Secretary of State before the
agreements are considered.
Secondly, information to be obtained whether the Road
Programme mentioned in the disclosures made, referred to
the two roads incidental to the implementing of the Hydro-
Electric Scheme or whether to all roads in the Dominica
Sketch Plan."
The motion was seconded by the Member for the Southern
District.
The Third Nominated member was in agreement with the
first part of the motion but found the second part unnecessary.
The Member for the Western District withdrew the second
part.
The motion, as amended, was put to the vote and all unofficial
members agreed to the cable being sent with the exception of the
Honourable T.M. Bertrand, who voted aganist it as he felt that
it would delay matters unnecessarily. The Honourable C. A. H.
Dupigny refrained from voting.
COLD STORAGE AGREEMENT.
The President then brought up the question of the Cold
Storage Agreement.
The Member for the Western District, however, pointed out
that in view of the Resolution which was moved and carried, these
agreements just could not be considered as no decision could be
arrived at. He said that it was a constitutional crisis and it
would be bartering their rights as members of a British Depen-
dency if they were prevented from having an unrestrained say in
the affairs of their country for fear that if they did so they would
be penalized. In view of that, he said, consideration would have
to be deferred until they got an assurance from the Secretary of
State.
The Third Nominated Member also expressed the desire of
getting the Cold Storage and Ice-Making Plant incorporated in one
Agreement and suggested that the Colonial Development Corpora-
tion be informed accordingly.
The First Nominated Member said he did not see any necessity
for incorporating the Cold Storage and Ice-Making Plant Agree-
ment and the Packing House Agreement in one, provided both
were considered at the same time. He pointed out that at the
meeting of the Fruit Trade Committee with Messrs. Roddam and
Gaynor, the Committee were informed that a Packing House
Agreement was being drawn up and would be forwarded in due
course for final acceptance. He thought the Cold Storage and Ice
Agreement should be deferred until the receipt of it.
The President promised to inform the Colonial Development
Corporation accordingly.

Acting Treasurer, the Council then adjournd, sine die.
