LETTER

llth April, 1953,
Dear Mr. COUTTS,
Further to my cable I write
to enclose an official receipt and I thank
you for the truly magnificent contribution
of $ 9,446.44 (1.968 Os 2d.) which result-
ed from the appeal which was made to
the people of the Windward Islands
This is a truly great demonstration of
sympathy and practical aid to all those
who suffered from the flood and tempest
in this island. I send to you, and to all
those who supported your appeal, my
heartfelt thanks and gratitude for all that
they have done.
The Windward Islands have, I know,
difficulties of their own and this makes
me all the more grateful for their splendid
contribution to my Fund The task of
relief which I have undertaken is a heavy
one but the tremendous support I have
received both from Home and from Over-
seas has helped to lighten the burden.
Yours very sincerely,
(Sgd) Rupert de la Bere

CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES
The minutes of the meeting held on Friday, December 19th,
1952, having Ieen circulated, were taken as read and confirmed.
BUSINESS ARISING OUT OF MINUTES
Dominica as an Approved Exam. Centre for Law.
The Chairman informed the Committee that he had taken
steps to urpe the request made by Mr Jeffers at the last meeting
viz. that this Colony be made an approved Examination Centre
for Law.
1350/52 INCREASED PRODUCE 'ION OF ESSENTIAL
FOODSTUFFS IN DOMINICA
The Chairman informed the Committee that pursuant to the
recommendations of tl:e Food Production Committee appointed
in August 1952, a scheme designed to stimulate and stabilize the
production of essential foodstuffs in this Co'ony by a system of
guaranteed prices, was submitted to the Secietary of State for
the Colonies and had been aooroved. *
The Scheme would be confined to the following seven items of
ocally produced essential foodstuffs that were considered less







perishable than the rest and these would be purchased by Govern-
ment at the guaranteed prices indicated:-
Sweet Potatoes 6c. Red Bears 24c,
Yams 5c. White Beans 18c.
Tannias 6c. Black-eyed Peas i2c.
Farine 36c.
Prospective Producers were expected to enter into contracts
with Government, and one of the terms of such contracts would
require that they should sell exclusively to Government the item
or items they contracted to supply.
Government,would in turn sell those items at 2". above the
guaranteed prices in the first instance, but as this scheme was in-
tended to be essentially self-supporting, the selling prices might
therefore have to be adjus ed from t:me to time as results dic-
tated. Notwithstanding such contingent fluctua ions selir g prices
were expected to be always maintained well be:ow what they had
been in seasons of short supply.
The Scheme would be tried for one year in the first instance
instead of tvo years as was originally intended, and it was hoped
to make a public statement in time to enable prospective suppliers
to sign up from April 1st.
Tne scheme would be under the immediate cont ol of the
Officer in charge of the Government Marketing Depot, Mr. Gerard
Winston. After discussion the Committ-ie approved the Scheme
and Mr. Winston who was summoned to the meeting to supply
such further infornmatioi as members mignt require then with-
drew.

991/48 POST OF CROWN LANDS OFFICER
The Committee after some discussion appcived the proposal
to submit an application to the Smcreta:y of S ate for the Colonies
for a variation of Scheme D, 1743 to permit the apJoiitm-'nt of a
Crown Lands Officer who will be paid a salary of frcm 500 to
600 per annum with Costof Living Albwance, In olace of and
with the funds provided for a Senior C mservatioi Instructor and
a Crown Lands Inspector in the Scheme mentioned above.







Mr. Burra who was summoned to the meeting gave a compre-
hensive account of the duties contemplated for the post in ques-
tion and of those devolving upon him as Assistant Conservator of
Forests in order to show how, as a result of the current attention
which he has been called upon to devote to the former, the per-
formance of his forestry duties had suffered greatly and that if
this situation continued the success of the Forestry Scheme would
ultimately be affected.
After disposing of some other minor questions Mr. Burra
withdrew.

recommendations for the augmentation of our supply of fish.
