PRESS RELEASE
RECENT MEETING REGIONAL
LABOUR HOARD
SATISFACTORY reports on the efficiency
and conduct of the West Indian Agricul-
tnral Workers in the United States were
among the matters brought to the atten.
tion of the Regional I abour Boa d which
met during the past week at Hastings
House Barbados under the chairmanship
of Sir I;kORGE SEEL, K.C M G CoImp-
truller for Development and Welfare.
in the course, f its discussion the Board
reviewed in detail the existing arrange-
ments for the well being of th. West
Indian Agricultuial Workers. Among
rece, t developments in this direction has
been the setting up of a Helping Central
in Miami early in the year under the
direction of Mr AN-TEY JACQUES of
Grenada. The Board confirmed that this
centre has been of great assistance to
West Indians in transit to and from the
United States and formally approved its
establisement.
The statement regarding the general
success of West Indian workers in Ame-
rica was contained in a report by Mr.
F. C. CATCHPOLE O. B P Labour Adviser
to the Comptroller and Mr S Hoctior,
O B.E. Labour Commissioner for Trir.idad
who inspected the Headquarters of the
Central Liaison Officer in Washington at
the beginning of the year and also visited
some of the camps of West Indian Work-
ers in different parts of the United States-
In the course of its report this Twoman
Committee expressed its satisfaction with
the work of the Organisation and recom-
mended that certain changes should be
made with a view to improving its effec-
tiveness. In particular it was proposed
that the post of Deputy Chief Liaison
Officer should be filled on a permanent
basis as soon as possible and that in view
of the great distances that have to be tra.
versed by the Liaison Officers in visiting
the various camps their number should be
increased during the crop seasons.
The Board adopted the recommenda-
tions and recorded its full confidence in
Mr. Herbert Mac Donald O. BE, Chief
Liaison Officer and his staff and its appre-
ciation of the valuable services rendered
by Mr. Mac. Donald since 1943.










OFFICIAL GAZETTE,

As evidence of the good opinion of
West Indian Workers held by American
Employers Mr. Cathpole and Mr. Hochoy
stated that opportunities for advance-
ment were being increasingly offered to
West Indians -for example to p)sts as
Camp Supervisors though these posts
were formerly held by American Nation-
als. On their side a large number of
West Indians had renewed their contracts.
The Board devoted a good deal of atten-
tion to the terms of the contracts signed
between employers and workers and
discussed means for improving them asc
opportunity offered.
Among other decisions of the Board
was one to the effect that a pamphlet
should be prepared for use in all the
Colonies concerned which should explain
fully and simply to each candidate for
employment the terms and conditions
under which lie would be working in the
United States.
It was noted that the number of West
indians now employed in the United
States was equal to that of last year.
It was obviously not possible to make
forecasts for the future since climatic and
many other conditions which could not
be predicted were involved. Meanwhile
there was no reason to suppose that hope
for the continuance of the scheme would
prove to be unjustified.

Requlattons, 1952.
The Honourable Crown Attorney seconded by the Honoura-
ble Financial Secretary moved the adoption by the Council of the
following Resolution: -
WHEREAS by section 15 (2) of the Motor Vehicles Insurance
(Third-Party Risks) Ordinance, 1950, it is enacted that Regula-
tions made uncer the said Ordinance shall have no force or effect

BE IT RESOLVED that the Motor Vehicles Insurance (Third-
Party Risks) (.Amendment) Regulations, 1952, be approved by
this Council.
The motion v as put to the vote and passed.
(it) Amesment o/ compen. ation to former tenants of ike GEd-
will Edtate
The Honourable Member for the Foseau Northern Electoral
District mved the adoption by the Council of the following
Resolution:
WHEREAS owing t) other developments and the introduc-
tion of a Dairy and Livestock Fa'm at Goodwill the Agricultural
Department has carried out a wholesale eviction of garden ten-
ants by serving 84 notices to quit.
WHEREAS the tenants under explicit directions from Gov-
ernm> nt have planted their gardens in canes for processing into
rum.
WHERFAS from 1948--1952 over 56,000 gallons of rum were
made from tenants canes and the iettrn from such cultivation
was practically the sole revenue of the estate.
WHEREAS the Agricultural Supeiintendent has taken over
gardens without first instituting machinery for assessing the
value of the garden lots, nor has he paid any recognition to the
paying of compensation.
WHEREAS this policy supports the view that Govern-
ment is upholding land owners in their unfair and repressive
dealings with the labourer.
BE IT RESOLVED: That Government nominate represent.
atives to serve with representatives appointed by the tenants for
assessing the compensation to be paid to the tenants, and that
Government make all necessary arrangements with the tenants to
expedite and finalise this matter.
The Honourable Member for the Roseau Northern Electoral
District in moving the adoption of the Resolution briefly reviewed








the circumstances in which a certain number of formertenantsof
the Goodwill Estate became entitled to compensation by Govern-
ment as a result of their having, at the direction of the latter,
planted their gardens to canes on the half-share basis, and were
subsequently evicted when the portion occupied by them was re-
quired for other developmental purposes without a proper assess-
ment made of the compensation due to them.
The Honourable Member went on to criticize severely the
Agricultural Superintendent for his delay in settling this matter,
considering that the claims of the tenants had already been fully
recognized.
He then earnestly appealed to the Council for its support of
the Resolution.
The Honourable Member for the Roseau Southern Electoral
District in seconding the Resolation, endorsed the remarks of the
Honourable Member, and expressed surprise that after several
months the Agricu'tural Superintendent had not taken the obvi-
ous course following upon his admission of compensation being
due to the tenants concerned.
The Honourable Members for the Eastern and North-Western
Electoral Districts also spoke in support of the Hesolution. The
latter however took strong exception to the last clause of the
preamble. The Honourable Member concerned readily agreed to
its deletion. It was further agreed to amend the Res lution by
the addition of the words "be asked strongly to" after the words
"Be it Resolved: That Government."
The motion for the adoption of the Rcsolution as amended
was then put to the vote and carried.
