provide the plots for carrying out the demonstrations, and the





necessary labour, and would als6 be expected-to carry out cultural ,
operations in accordance with instructions.
Fertilizer would be issued free-and applied under supervision.
This project was estimated to cost about $1200 which would
be borne equally by Government, the Antilles Products Ltd., and
the Dominica Banana Association.

of Government's share of $400.
Discussion ensued and a decision was taken by vote. The

districts of the island where and when this appeared necessary
and feasible,
,The Scheme would at present handle the less perishable food
crops such as Tannias, Yams, Sweet Potatoes and Plantains, and
perhaps Dasheens depending on circumstances. Other conunodi
ties such as farine and coals would be considered in due course
His Honour further explained that it was intended to be a
short term self-balancing Scheme which :n any case would not
be allowed to outlive its usefulness.

The financial implications of the Colonial Development Corp-
oration taking over from Government the electric lighting o' part
of Roseau as a means of relieving the Power Plant of its present
dangerous overload was laid before the Committee by the l inan-
cial S. cretary.
It was proposed to purchase electricity in bulk from the Col.
onial Development Corporation and it was estimated thai. this
would cost about $1,000 monthly.
Capital expenditure was expected to be limited to only very
minor items.
The foregoing expenditure vould at first be in the nature of
an insurance against a complete breakdown of the Government
machines, but it wis exp acted that this would eventually be more
than offset by subscriptions accruing from consumers in the
area concerned.

sure in principle, subject to the following further information
being supplied:
(i) 'I he position regarding flat rate subscribers who might
have paid their subscriptions in advance and wno would be re-
quired, as contemplated, to change over to meters in order to

(iii) Revision of Public Works Depa-tn mn Staf] 618/'52
necessitated by requirenm nts of revised develop-
ment programme.
His Honour the Administrator outlined to the Cf mmittee the
details of a proposed three-year C D. & W. Staff Scheme to re-
place the present C.D. & W. Scheme D. 702: Public Works Staff
and C D. & W. Schemes D. 1302 and D. 1302 A. Road Develop-
ment Staff. The first will normally terminate on the 31st of Oc-
tober and the other two will be terminated at the same time
should the new scheme be approved.,
The scheme proposed is necessitated by the revision of the
road programme of the Colony and other development projects
entailing changes in plans and p-iorities among the latter.
The following are the principal changes proposed in the new
Scheme:
(i) The Salary of the Director of Works now being paid
partly from scheme 1). 702 and partly from' Colony funds is not
provided for in the Scheme under consideration, but would be
met entirely from Colony funds.
(ii) The As-istant Engin er provided for iuder Scheme D.
702 would be omitted and the -upervising Engineer under Sch' me
D. 1302 would be replaced by a Projects Engineer.
(iii) Two Building Foremen are included to take care of the
entire building programme.
The estimated cost of the new scheme is approximately ,25,-
000. Provision in the Development Plan for staff amounted to
/31,808. Approved grants amounted to 23.253. Estimated
savings on approved grants is approximately 9,200. Savings
on provision for staff is therefore i17,252 leaving only /7,798
which can be met from this Colony's anticipated C.U. & W.
reserve.
The Committee approved the Scheme and His Honour gave
the assurance requested by Mr. Winston that all Staff under the
new scheme would come under the direction of the Public Works
Department.
It was hoped to bring the Scheme into operation from the
1st of November, 1952.
(iv) MAeetinos of Legislative Councril iand Finance (Cornuil'ce.
His Honour proposed that a meeting of the Legislative Coun-
cil be held on the last Tuesday of each month at 2.30 p.m. and
that of Finance Committee either on the following Wednesday
at 10.30 a.m. or immediately after the meeting of Legislative
Council if circumstances permitted it.
The Committee agreed to the proposal.
Mr. Pouglas and Mr. Laville requested His Honour to consi-
der the possibility of placing the crash launch at their disposal
to ensure their getting home as soon as possible after meetings.
His Honour promised to examine this request,






(v) Senhouse 4 I'er Bridge and Road. 1848, 48
Mr. Alfred brought to the notice of His Honour what he rep-
resented was his repeated request for action in connection with
the need for bridging the Senhouse River which the school child-
ren of Castle Bruce must cross to get to school.
Mr. Alfred also complained of the condition of the road to
the school which he said was very bad and dangerous and asked
that some improvement be made to it.
His Honour promised to look into both these matters.
(vi) Clinic at Calibishie.
Mr. Laville stated that if Government should decide about
putting a clinic at Calibishie a suitable house was available at a
rental of $6.00 monthly.
(vii) Gratuity to legal personal representative of the late
E.P. Colaire.
The Committee approved the grant of a gratuity of the order
of $480.00 to Mrs. Mary Ann Colaire, the legal personal represent-
ative of the late Ellis P. Colaire, Second Class Warder, H.M. Prison-
:viii) Direct reference to His Honour on informal m ntter.'.
At the suggestion of His Honour the Committee ag eed that
such matters as did not specifically require to be represented at
meetings of Councils or Committee would in the first instance be
brought to his notice direct by way of interviews or correspon-
dence thus making it possible to save some time in taking such
action as was indicated.
