losing her reputation for honesty and propriety.
This state of affairs has been reflected in the unu-
sually lengthy criminal sessions in March and
October. I sil mid like to be able to attribute this
incr, as, in die apparent incidence of crime solely to
the greater thoroughness and efficiency displayed
by the police, but honesty compels me to admit
that this deterioration in moral standards-however
much this may be a part of a world-wide malaise-
focuses attention on the need for arresting this rot
in its early stages. We have already made a start
with the successful establishment of a Juvenile
Court and it is to be hoped that in the none too
dis .tnt future funds will be available to provide
suitable treatment for young offenders.

If we may turn to the 1951 Estimates for
a moment, I would observe that, on the Secretary
of State's instructions, schemes D. 31 Agriculture
and D. 205 Medical which we had hoped last year
to transfer to the local Budget have been kept on,
at least until the 31st March 1951 by which time
a final decision will be forthcoming, as part of
Development expenditure. In an attempt to
"rationalize" the Estimates certain charges which
were hitherto borne on the federal budget have
been transferred to the presidential estimates. Thus
we find a token vote inserted to pay for the
services of a Labour Officer; and though we look
forward to his visits to effect mutual understanding
and confidence between capital and labour, it is
my sincere hope that during 1951 no industrial
dispute s or threatened strike will arise to necessitate
his visit in an emergency. Other such transfers
which I would mention are the votes for Police
Other charges and for the Magistrate.

Though this Budget has been prepared as
carefully and as prudently as possible, we still find
ourselves facing a deficit of $113,727 in 1951.
Most of the substantial new projects will be paid
from Development funds. No attempt has been
made to anticipate the findings of the forthcoming
Salaries and Reorganisation Commission in the
matter of civil servants' salaries. The cost of
materials and supplies continue to increase and such
rising costs have perforce to be reflected in our
Estimates.


Thanks to the industry of our Crown
Attorney, who unfortunately for us will be leaving
Montserrat for some ten months, much useful
legislation has been prepared and passed by this
Council this year. To mention only one enact-
ment, the comprehensive Vehicles and lIoad
Traffic Ordinance which we will consider later
today should go a long way to decrease the
alarming number of road accidents which we have
experienced in recent years.
It will be for you gentlemen later to debate
whether or not this Presidency accepts the recom-
mendations of the Standing Closer Association
Committee as regards the federation of the British
West Indies and official members will neither
participate in the debate nor vote on the motion.
In Iis recent address to the General Legislative
Council the Governor announced that the Secre-
tary of State has approved of certain constitutional
changes in three of the Presidencies broadly similar
to those recently approved for the Legislative
Councils of the Windward Islands. These include
provision for an unofficial elected majority on the
Leg'islative Council of Montserrat, andl for the
ret:letion of nominated members, with Presidential
Legislatures electing certain members of the Execu-
tive Councils. The detailed changes have yet to be
worked out, but His Excellency gave the assurance
that no constitutional changes will be effected with-
out Members of Council having an opportunity to
express their views.
At this unquiet juncture of Internation(l ;i Iirl,,
when the dr,'ad possibility of a Third World War
looms in the offing, it is only natural that our eyes
should be lifted anxiously to the window of the
outside world. But what'er befalls we all have
our parts to play in the progress and development
of our small but well-loved island. I am reasonably
conii lent that none of us will fail in our several
tasks and that with God's grace we can look for-
ward to a measure of progress and prosperity.
I take this opportunity to extend to you and
through you to the people of Montserrat my heart-
felt g:od wishes not only for the approaching
festive season but for the years ahead be they, as
I hope, prosperous and fruitful, or, should hopes
prove dupes, arduous and lean.

Supplement to the Leeward Islands Gazette

Of Thursday, the 4th January, 1951.


ADDRESS by the President at the
Budget Session of the Legislative
Council of Montserrat, Tuesday,
19th December, 1950.


MIembers of this Honourable Council,
For the second time I have the honour and
privilege of presiding over a Budget Session of this
Council. Although I was called to serve elsewhere
for four months during this year-and such inter-
ruptions are not conducive to the smooth and con-
tinuous execution of Government policy-1 should
like to attempt to give you my general impressions
of such progress as has been made in this Presi-
dency during the last year or so and the future
prospects of this small island in a troubled and
tumultuous world.
As you are aware, as a result largely of un-
favourable climatic conditions, this year's cotton
crop has been disappointing, and the resulting finan-
cial stringency which affects us all is reflected in the
general economy of the Presidency. The dangers
of relying on one staple crop (and a risky one at
that) and of failing to diversify our efforts must be
apparent to all. However, strenuous efforts have
been made this year by the Agricultural Superin-
tendent and others to develop an export trade in
tomatoes to Eire and the United Kingdom. It is
not possible at this juncture to forecast all possible
implications of this venture; suffices it to say that
the opportunity, which may not recur for many
years, appears to have presented itself of gaining an
entry into European markets for our tomatoes
without forsaking the Canadian trade. It is hoped
that, with the co-operation of all concerned, a flour-
ishing secondary industry will be established in
Montserrat and that, with the incentive provided by
the Pioneer Industries Ordinance which is before us
today, we shall before long see the establishment of
a cannery for the surplus tomatoes which we are
not able to export. We have it on no less an
authority than that of the Secretary of State him-
self that the project for increasing tomato produc-
tion is the one most likely to make a substantial
contribution towards Montserrat's economy."
With an assured good price for all the cotton
we can produce next year, it is to be hoped that
the weather and other factors will combine to pro-
duce a bumper cotton crop in 1951. However, in
the rush to plant as much cotton as possible, we
must not lose sight of the great necessity of ensur-
ing the production of an adequate quantity of food-
stuffs, particularly of ground provisions. The
problem of increasing production of meat and dairy
products is one that is receiving the earnest and
active consideration of Government, not merely
because of existing shortages but also particularly
in view of the unsettled world conditions which
confront us. We are looking forward to a visit
in the New Year from the Comptroller's Agricul-


tural Adviser and the Director of Agriculture to
advise us not merely on our general agricultural
problems and particularly on the problem of in-
creased food production but also on the possibilities
of the erection of a small sugar factory capable of
producing the present volume of our sugar imports
and on a re-orientation of the policy to be adopted
in respect of the Otway Land Settlement.
It is a pleasure to be able to report that the
Development Plan of this Presidency has, subject
to certain comments, received the general approval
of the Secretary of State-we have reasons to
believe that it is the first such Plan in the Colony
to be so approved. A start has already been made
on several projects set out in the Plan, as witness
the completion of the Cork Hill School, the steady
and satisfactory progress made on the St. John's
School, the oiling of the main road in the latter
area, and the improvements which have been
effected to that splendid institution, which reflects
great credit on the doctors, matron and staff, the
Glendon Hospital. There are however certain
factors which we should bear in mind in connexion
with the execution of Development projects: we
must remember that however desirable and neces-
sary each individual project may be, it is obviously
impossible to attempt all or the majority of the
schemes in the first year or two; apart from
obvious limitations of staff and an unfavoum:ble
supply situation, each scheme requires can ful
planning beforehand. It is in this connexion that
the advice not merely of experts such as those
attached to the Comptroller's staff but of Honour-
able Members themselves is so very valuable. As
a glance at the draft estimates will show, we have
made provision for a number of these projects in
1951 among which-matters which have received
my most careful consideration for some time past-
are the provision of electric light and power for
Plymouth and the expansion of our cold storage
facilities to cope with an expanded tomato trade.
Once again the Secondary School is to be
congratulated on producing the winner of the Lee-
ward Islands Scholarship. I hope that it will not
be long before this School is moved into other
more suitable and commodious quarters there to
continue not merely to produce the annual scholar-
ship winner under the qualifying examination for
the Higher School Certificate but to turn out up-
right, dependable and conscientious young men and
women fitted to take their part in adult life. The
annual average attendance at the primary schools
continues to exceed the 80% mark, which is believed
to constitute a record for such schools in the British
West Indies. Our public buildings and roads have
been maintained in good condition throughout the
year, although the time has come when it is neces-
sary to seal-coat our oiled roads to protect them
from deterioration, and the necessary provision has
been made in the Estimates.
There has unfortunately been an alarming in-
crease in crime this year, particularly of crimes
against property, and Montserrat is in danger of
