Notice.
It is hereby notified for general information that on Her accession, Her Majesty Queen
ELIZABETH II has addressed the following messages to the Services mentioned below:-
To the Royal Navy.
On my accession to the throne, I wish to send a message of gratitude to the Royal
Navy and all my other Naval Forces for the distinguished services which they rendered during
the reign of my beloved father. He received his early training in the Royal Navy and
maintained throughout his life a. close personal interest in the ships and men
of the Naval Services. As the wife of a serving officer, I too have a specially intimate
link with the Royal Navy. I have seen both at home and overseas how its great traditions,
tested and proved in two world wars, are constantly maintained by all who serve under the
White Ensign. I shall endeavour to keep in touch with the activities and welfare of all ranks
and ratings of my Naval Forces throughout the Commonwealth. Grateful for their services in
the past, proud of their present efficiency, and confident that they will uphold their high
standards, I send to them all, this expression of the trust which I and my peoples throughout
the Commonwealth repose in them. ILIZABETH R."
To the Army.
I wish, on my succeeding to the throne, to address a message to all ranks of my
Armies thanking them for the notable services which they rendered to my beloved father
during his reign and assuring them of my confidence in their loyalty and efficiency. My own
service in the Auxiliary Territorial Service and my personal association with individual regiments
of British and Commonwealth Forces have given me some experience of the varied and onerous
tasks which they are called upon to discharge. Devotion to duty, a good.humoured acceptance
of hardship when necessary, and an undefeatable endurance in adversity are characteristics of
the Military Forces which have brought us victory in war and security in peace. I know that
I can rely upon them to respond to my call upon ,their allegiance with the same competence
and enthusiasm with which they served my fa er. I shall always take a close personal
interest in all that concerns their welfare and efficiency. ELIZABETH R."
To the Royal Air Force.
On my accession to the throne, I wish to assure my Air Forces at home and overseas
of my gratitude for their services to my beloved father and of my confidence in their loyalty
and efficiency. My father won his wings as a young man and watched with pride the rapid
development of the Royal Air Force and its sister forces throughout the Commonwealth! I was
glad to be able to present his Colour to the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom last year
and I value highly my own association with the Royal Auxiliary Air Force. In a short time
the Air Forces of the Commonwealth, by their skill and courage, have earned a reputation and
established traditions of which they may well be proud. Their heroic exploits .in the second
world war will never be forgotten. Now in far flung stations over the world they play a con-
stant and always hazardous part in protecting the security of our territories and communica-
tions. I assure them of my personal solicitude for their welfare and I trust that they will
continue to display that pride of service and unswerving allegiance to the Crown which they
have ever shown. ELIZABETH R."
To the Colonial Service.
I desire, on my accession to the throne, to express to all members of the Colonial
Service my warm appreciation of the ability and devotion with which in the past they have
performed their manifold and responsible duties. The splendid traditions of the Service are
well known to me and are rightly a source of pride to its members. I know that I can depend
with confidence on their unfailing loyalty and on their continued and steadfast devotion to the
well being of the peoples whom they serve. ELIZABETH R."

ADDRESS by His Honour the Admin-
istrator at a Meeting of the Legisla-
tive Council of Antigua held on
Thursday, 24th January, 1952.

lionourable Memnbers of Council,
I am more fortunate than some of you in
that I only have to make one political speech a.
year, but less fortunate in that all iny political
speeches are printed and may ble brought up in
evidence against me. On looking through my
former addresses as I have laid before you a series
of budgets each more discouraging than the last
I am sorely tempted to copy out a few extracts
and repeat them. I will, however, for the bene-
fit of future historians invite your attention to
the salient changes in our situation and prospects.
I would first like to express my pleasure at
being surrounded once more by so many accus-
tomed faces with whom 1 have enjoyed such
happy relations in the past and to welcome the
newcomers with whom I look forward to
similar co-operation in the future. I congratu-
late you on your added responsibilities, not
forgetting that responsibility often involves
unpleasant and solnetimies unpopular tasks. It
is the test of democracy when it has to weather
temporary unpopularity; and it can be a severe
test. You should not forget that although
democracy can afford a higher average of happi-
ness than any other form of Government it has not
been successful in the majority of states in
which it has been tried: This has been either
because the politicians feared to tell the people
the truth or because the people would not accept
the truth when they were told it. Irresponsible
democracy brought the cities of ancient Greece
to ruin and loss of independence. It brought
the liomin Republic to such a pass that the
people welcomed the despotism of good Govern-
ment of the Caesars. It reduced France from
being the greatest power in Europe .to the
humiliation of 1940. Now responsibility does
not mean merely being a reactionary. It means
readiness to consider without prejudice the
probable consequences and to accept without
recrimination the actual consequences of what
you do. If you do this, I do not fear for the
survival of democracy here. I am much
encouraged by the manner in which this new
council has so far indicated its intention to
shoulder its responsibilities. We were faced
with the alternative of doing without a doctor's
house for the Valley district, doing without
2,000 worth of repair on the roads, doing without
improvement of roads and drains in the Otto's
area or increasing our taxation. I understand
you have decided to raise the export duty on
cotton and sugar to enable these things to be
done and the necessary measures will shortly be
laid before you. They will not be popular, but
they will demonstrate to all your readiness to
assume responsibility.


I would mention here that these distasteful
measures might not have been necessary had
not some of your constituents been so active in
the ancient hut not very honourable sport of
smuggling, In 1918, the worst year of the
drought, the customs Leveuue from rum was
$200,143.00. In 1!50 hle year uftherecoid crop
we have yet reaped, it was only 8142,841.00.
I cannot believe that this drop in revenue was
due to reduction in consumption. I can only
conclude that we lost $60,000 or prol:ably much
more through smuggling. Smuggling is not
really a better sport than chicken-stealing.
Chicken-stealing deprives the grower of chickens
of the fruits of his labours and we can now see
that sm juggling means that the grower of cane and
cotton has got to pay the taxes that should have
been paid by thel drinker of um and Ihe smoker
of tobacco. It is equally unfair to the law-
abiding drinker and smoker who pays these
taxes. The Government intend to try to put
down iiiruling this year and 1 ask for the
co-operation of the public. The Government is
not mine or His Excellency's. It is not the
Civil Service. [t belongs to tle people you
represeut. You want more help from your
Government. You want better roads, a better
medical service, better housing. Help your
Government t.o help you. \e are not lt:e chief
sufferers when the Government is cheated-
though we (do suffer with he rest. The sufferers
are those whom the Government ought to
assist in so many ways and would assist if it had
the means, but cannot because some people
deny it its due.
The Estimates now before you represent
but a token of what is required and, so far as
Public Works Extraordinary is concerned, little
more than half what we considered a bare mini-
mum three months ago. Those of you v:ho
read the news of the wide world will realise that
wars and rumours of wars are requiring a larger
share of the world's goods and services to be
diverted from constructive to destructive work
and I am sorry to say that Antigua is not the
only place in the world where production
recently has not been as great as it might have
been. I will not enter into discussion of the
many opinions that are expressed as to why this
is so and what should be done about it, but I very
much hope that you will all read them for your-
selves and form your own conclusions. I know
that some of you do and that this accounts for
your more realistic approach to some of our
problems, but I should much like to see more
people trying to understand the affairs of the
world on which Antigua is so dependent for its
life. You may have read of the further restric-
tion of consumption in the British Isles. You
may have heard of the steep rise in prices in the
United States and the drop in sales of motor
cars, refrigerators, and television sets-which
Americans regard as necessities. I do not over-
look the fact that the standards in both these






countries are vastly higher than in Antigua, but
until we can demand a greater share of the
world's goods and services by right of our own
production, I fear that we-shall have to wait a
little longer for many necessities such as proper
roids in the suburbs and extension of water
mains. While more steel is being used.for guns
and tanks, less will be available for water pipes;
and for many of the works we require we could
not obtain the materials in 1952 even if we had
the money. We must accept our share of tie
reduction of materials available In fact prob-
ably rather mor, than our share of the world's
materials are being used in Antigua, if you take
into account the number of houses that are
b'-in built- under the Hurricane Rehousing
Programme, from the Labour Welfare Fund for
Sugar Workers, and the Hospital and Schools
that are being erected from Development and
Welfare Funds. We shall also be spending
substantial loan money for the reconstruction of
the electricity system and the erection of a
Central Cotton Ginnery and a new Marketing
Office and Depot. In the light of these facts
and the very severe cuts which the United
Kingdom is being compelled to make in all its
expenditure I do not think we can call a grant-
in-aid of $725,000 ungenerous.

On the details of the Estimates now before
you I would observe that there is an increase of
20% in the provision for Barbuda. I am very
glad that we have been able to include provision
for a windmill for the demonstration vegetable
plot at Guava, which is already doing a thriving
trade and improving the diet of the islanders.
I have made arrangements for some further land
there to be made available to any private persons
who are prepared to undertake vegetable grow-
ing. Some members will be glad to hear that
the peace of Barbuda is now disturbed by
the tractor, which is doing a thriving trade in
hauling coals and other produce. I much sym-
pathise with the desire of the people to have a
lighi to guide their boats to the iver" land-
ing,-l)it I fear that the cost of employing a
person to travel over three miles each way twice
a day to light it would absorb too great a
proportion of the funds we can allot to-Barbuda.
The same applies to suggestions that have been
made that the Government ouglit to maintain a
motor launch service to Barbuda. [ am not one
of those for whom the sea-trip to Barbuda is the
most enjoyable part of the excursion but I would
certainly not exchange a sloop for any motor-
boat with only one engine or without wireless.
And if we could afford a motor-boat some people
forget how much more uncomfortable any
motor-boat is than a sailing-obat of a similar
size. I know it may be quicker, but per-
sonally I shall stick to sloops until I can have a
helicopter, which in a few years may cost no
more than a launch. It would moreover be very
helpful if those who say the Government ought
to do this or that would also say what they
imagine it would cost. I have not had time to


go into the cost of this proposal lit have no
doubt it would be prohibitive.
The Agricultural Department Estimates
have been divided into three parts-general,
Land Settlement, and Marketine, in order that
the cost of these latter services may be easily
ascertained. The additional staff under the
Marketing Section has not yet been approved by
the Secretary of State but proposals based on
the report of the committee which investigated
this section in April have been before him for
a little time. More than the corresponding
revenue is to be found under Head l\ (4), 10
Marketing Commission" and Interest on
Peasant Loans is to be found under Head VII, 8.
The Estimates of the Water Board provide
$24,000 for the Replacenmnt of Mains in St.
John's and .5,i.iii for the Extension of Mains.
I am sorry to say that the money voted for this
purpose last year had to be used to relay the
main from Potter's Buff to the Hospital. The
corrosion and sedimentation of these old pipes
had gradually reduced the flow to the point
where the water service broke down and one
day the Fiennes Institute was without water for
cooking. The Government is still at the
expense of carting water there but I hope this
work will be finished within the next six weeks
and that at least the institutions will have an
adequate supply. We shall then be able to
extend the town mains where they are most
needed, which I understand is considered to he
the Ottos and Villa areas. You will observe
that the Water Supply at the Base Area is still
a heavy drain an our funds though 1 expect a
great improvement in Revenue with the instal-
lation of meters and the extinction of our
liability to supply water free to those who
provided the capital cost of the extension to the
Beach l!otel and Hodges Bay. We are finding
the maintenance of the salt-water sewage system
at Coolidge Field very expensive and we may
nave to abandon it, and use the fresh water for
this purpose. This will be regrettable because
it will reduce the amount of drinking water
available for other villages. Before anything
irrevocable is done I hope that some of you will
have an opportunity of studying this problem.
and advising.
On the vexed question of the Finance of
Water Services to which I have referred in my
previous speeches I am glad to find that we are
getting much nearer to thinking alike. I think
we all agree that there is a limit to what people
can pay for water and that there are some
people who cannot pay at all-just as there are
some people who cannot pay for bread. But
the people to whom the Government must sup-
ply free bread are those very specially afflicted
and are a very small proportion of the popula-
tion. Water is very much cheaper than bread
and in more fortunate countries it may be free.
But in Antigua it cannot be and those who use
it will have to pay such very small charges as it
will be necessary to prescribe. The Water Board






agrees however that such charges should be
introduced only as an improved service can be
provided and that they should he alike e\very-
where where such a service is introduced. This
is a matter which will no doubt he studied by
the appropriate (. en. ittee before long and
T hope we slihll find ourselves eventually in
complete agreement.
The happiest feature in the Estimates to
which I can refer is the reduction in the Prison
population. For some years this had fluctuated
between 100 and 120 luit from some time inl
May it began to diminish until in August it
reached the low record of 03. This was a little
too good to last, but I am glad to say that at tlhe
beginning of this week there were still only 77
in prison I have heard various reasons sug-
gested for this remarkable reduction and prob-
ably many causes have contributed to it, but
I should like to record my belief that the Keeper
of Prisons and the Warders have played a sub-
stantial part in reforming the characters of
prisoners committed to their care. If this is so,
the money which we voted in 1950 for improv-
ing the pay of prison officers has proved a good
investment. I am sorry to say that we have not
been able to take more boys into the Training
School, but any further expansion would in-
volve more staff and accommodation as well as
a proportionate increase in food and clothing.
Another event which seems most satisfactory
is the discharge of 14 of the inmates of the Leper
Home this week as a result of the new treatment
with sulphatrone. I think you are aware that
this treatment has been proceeding for about two
vears and that it takes many months to effect a
cure. The medical department desires to take
no risks uid these discharges have not been made
until some time after the patients appeared to be
non-infectious. I trust that the cures may be
permanent and that we may soon have more to
report. I shall have to ask you to make three
amendments to the estimates in Committee
restoring and increasing the provision for hous-
ing loans for discharged lepers, increasing _the
assistance under Head XIII (3) for Maintenance
of Discharged Lepers, and reducing the Provi-
sions for Patients ".
The rise in the cost of medical services
reflects the general increase in the cost of all
supplies. For the first time since the war we
have a full-staff of doctors, though one of them
is away improving hi., medical knowledge and
I am very sorry to say that Dr. Wynter finds
that his heath requires him to give up Govern-
ment work. We shall of course replace him as
soon as possible.
Education in the long term is, I have no
doubt, the surest solution of all our problems.
Like everything else, we could do it better if we
had more money. Our policy in recent years to
improve it is also costing us more money now
and the increase in the cost of teachers is one of
the heaviest before you. But you will note that
the staff is now considered to be sufficient and


that the number of Pupil Teachers is reduced.
I believe that the younger teachers are now of a
higher standard than some of their predecessors
of 20 ears ago. Improved teaching methods
will also produce better results and 1 am hopeful
that the next generation will have more under-
standing than the present. We must expect
some further increase in the personal emoluments
of teachers as the young men and women who
have been recently recruited qualify for higher
pay but I hope the increases will not be as great
as recently.
I fear tlat Secondary Education, in spite of
the devotion of many of the schoolmasters and
mistresses who teach for much less than they are
worth is not up to thle standard it, should 1e-
also for lack of money. We have lately contribu-
ted a little more substantially than in the past to
various secondary schools. But if we can achieve
solvency [ suggest that it would be worth our
while to put this on a proper footing.
The Municipal Services continue to be a
serious drain upon our budget. A suggestion

has been made that responsibility for these
services should be divided between other depart-
meits and that thereby the cost of administra-
tion and other overheads would be reduced. I
understand that the views of those immediately
concerned are divided on this point and I have
not yet had time to study it myself. I do not
therefore offer any opinion, but I should like to
assure the staff of the City Commission that the,
suggestion does not imply any reflection on their
efficiency and the Commissioners themselves that
there is no lack of appreciation of the consider-
able time and thought that they devote to
City affairs. Such services as they are able to
provide appear to me to work as smoothly and
efficiently as could be expected. You will of
course have an opportunity to study the problem
for yourselves when it has been further in-
vestigated.
You will note that the combined cost of
stationery, printing and binding; which was only
$13,000 in 1950, is estimated to cost the formid-
able sum of $30,000 in 1952. In addition to this
we shall now have to pay the cost of the Gazettes
which we use. This is the result, of the appalling
rise in tle.price of paper of which those of you
who are in any way associated with newspapers
must be aware.
The cost of the operation of the Airport has
now been brourlht to within $1,000 of the
estimated revenue. The loss on the Base Elec-
tricity is expected to be reduced from $37,686 a
year to $16,783 as a result of further extensions
and the installation of meters. This year [ hope
the Electricity Board may be able to take over
and extinguish the loss altogether.
I referred last year to the opportunity the
hurricane had given us in housing. Progress in
this matter is also one of the brighter features of
1951. The Hurricane rehousing programme
started in June-a little over nine months after
the hurricane. I believe that after the 1944






hurricane in Jamaica it was over a year
before anything happened. By the beginning of
December 123 houses had been completed and
five schemes of aided selfl-help have been initiated.
A further 1: hundred houses are under construction,
I should like to congratulate all concerned-the
Central Housing and Planning Authority, the
Sugar Welfare Committee the staff of the depart-
ments and most of all tlh people of Antigua who
have shown in this field a readiness to recognize
the limitations of what is possible, to cooperate
with each other, and get things done without
dispute which 1 hope we shall soon see in other
fields of activity.
There are two matters which the elected
members have been advocating recently to which
I should particularly like to add such support as
I can. The first is saviIngs. I am much dis-
tressed to see how soon men who have been
earning three or four dollars a day will become
destitute when their work cones to an end.
Unfortunately it is almost certain that there will
not b( as much money about in 1953 as there will
this year. I therefore beg all those who have a
job now to put by a little of it-even if it means
going without something they want-for next
year. More still should those who have good
crops make provision for the inevitable bad years.
Some of the peasants to whom the Government
has been giving loans are now becoming their
own capitalists. I hope more will do so in order
that the loans may l e available to help others
-who are beginning farming. The other matter is
the cultivation of food crops. It is most true
that whatever may become of world prices and
markets the man who has food growing in his
ground will never starve-unless somebody else
takes it from him. And here I suggest that
predial larceny is a much more serious deterrent
to planting than doubts about selling the crop,
It is a matter about which there ia:s been much
discussion all over the West Indies and we talk
ab(ut it Irom time to time here. There are few
things to which you could more protitably give
serious thought. IProbably strong public opinion
would help more even than anything tle Police
and Magistrates can do.
Lastyear I concluded my address )by basing
my main hopes on Tourism. Like a careful
politician mindful of the next election' I made no
promises. If I were dressing my political-shop-
window I should tell you that we have added to
our Tourist Committee, held a few meetings,
sent a pamphlet about Antigua to be printed in
Barbados, appointed a Secretary to the Tourist
Committee and made arrangements for her to study
at St.Kitts the methods of organising tours ashore
for passengers on passing ships. I have main-
tained contact with the Secretary of the Carib-
bean Tourist Committee and through him I have
tried to obtain engagements for our steel Bands
in places more profitable than Antigua. If 1
pretended that this was all I hoped to do or that
it has yet achieved concrete results I should lie;
but I still believe that these are hopeful lines for
improving this industry and that if we can find
ANTI

a little more time to attend to them it will be
worth while. We did not spend all you voted
last year, but I am asking you to vote a little
more this year because 1 believe we have made
excavations in which useful foundations can be
laid. Building will still be for later and of course
I lope the building will be with the capital of
others. I shall however li y before you a special
Hotels Aid Law-not because Hotels could not
obtain aid under the Pioneer Industries Aid Law,
but because we have been advised tiht unless
there is a law with this title and specially directed
to Hotels, those interested will not pay any atten-
tion to it. An increasing number of visitors
have expressed their delight at the climate and
beauty of Antigua. It only remains for us to
have a little more faith in it ourselves.
1 told you last year that Antigua could be
either Heaven or lIell- ,:s you would make it.
You seem to have tried the one and are now trying
the other. The less therefore we discuss 1951 the
better. But 1 am a firm believer in the Devil.
He had an exceptionally i;ood innings in Antigua
and he has started 1952 pretty badly. He is not
going to take a licking x\ without a fight, and he
will make a determined attempt, if lie is not
doing so already, to arouse all the old suspicions
in your hearts. And if you are not very much
on your guard he will succeed and you will be
back in a worse position both economically and
politically than you weie last year. Here is the
recipe for avoiding this. It was laid down by
St. Paul for the Corintlians nineteen hundred
years ago. Suffer long; be kind; envy not; vaunt
not yourselves; be not puffed up; do not behave
yourselves unseemly; seek not your own; he not
easily provoked; think no evil; rejoice not in
iniquity, but rejoice in the truth. All of you will
recognize a few precepts that are very suitable
for the other fellow, but if you really want
40,000 tons of sugar in-a year, prosperity, happi-
ness, and full responsibility for your own affairs
both capital and labour should adopt all of them
front now on.
A ntig'ia is a lovely country. In the words
of Shakespeare, it is our garden to the which
our wills are t he gardeners; so that if we will
plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop and weed
up thyme, supply it with one gender of herbs, or
distract it with many; either to have.it sterile
with idleness, or manured with industry; why,
the power and corrigible authority of this lies in
our wills".
But it will need an effort of will. It will
not just happen if you say Everything is now
all right because we have got a new constitution "
or Everything is all right because we have all
agreed to reap the crop ". It will need a con-
scious attempt by everybody to make things
really different, to root up the nettles the
moment they appear, to cultivate the lettuce and
the good herbs and to see that neither idleness
nor 'malice shall spoil what we have so well
begun. Where tbere's a will there's a way ";
and my hope not only for 1952 but for other
years is that you will find it.
