Supplement to the Leeward Islands Gazette
Of Thursday the 7th day of Januarq, 1954.


ADDRESS by His Excellency the Governor to the General Legis-
lative Council-6th January 1954.

llonounralle Members of the General Legislative Council,
I am sure that you would first wish me to welcome to this Council
for the first time two new members-the Hon. J. R. A. McDoNALD, as
acting Federal Treasurer; and the Hon. C. A. P. SOUTHWELL who has
been elected to replace the first Representative Member for St. Kitts-
Nevis-Anguilla at this meeting.
In past years it has been customary for the Governor to deliver an
address at this budget session covering all aspects of government activity
throughout the Colony during the previous year. I propose on
this occasion to depart somewhat from this procedure. In the first place
the whole trend in recent years has been for government to be operated
on a Presidential rather than on a Federal basis, and Honourable
Members will have heard, or will shortly hear, detailed accounts of
progress in their Presidencies from the Presidents of their own Councils.
Secondly, in spite of every effort by administrati e means to transfer
legislation to Presidential Legislatures, there still seem to be a number
of subjects which for the convenience of all concerned have to be handled
federally-and we have before us to-day a lengthy agenda; so my
address must be as brief as possible.
But, though I do not propose to give a detailed review of progress
in every Presidency and in every field of government activity, I cannot
refrain from mentioning some high-lights of the past year.
Starting from the north, we see the first motor road being built in
the British Virgin Islands-a road which may make it possible before
long to provide air communication between the British Virgin Islands
and the outside world, and a road which may contribute in other ways
to the much needed improvement of the economy of the Presidency.
I believe that at long last the year 1953 has seen some progress made
with the major problem of the Preidencv--the removal of barriers
between the British and the American Virgin Islands. Last month
I had an opportunity of presenting the case of the Virgin Islands to the
Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Interior and
Insular Affairs, and I hope that I have convinced him-and through him
those who will have to consider the necessary legislation-that the
British Virgin Islanders have a good case for m ore f;avourable treatment.
Moving further south I am glad to be able to record the opening of
a Secondary School in Anguilla. In bt. Kitts the major problem of
housing is being tackled energetically and successfully by the Central
Housing and Planning Authority; at long last a new Police Station and
Magistrate Court is being erected; and striking progress has been made
with public health development. Nevis has seen progress-albeit slow-
with its earthquake reconstruction programme; and plans to realise that
dream of all Nevisians a sugar factory-have been prepared, but are
still in the discussion stage.
Antigua too has seen progress in many ways, in housing, in its
hospital, and in its water supplies. A start has been made with the
development of fisheries, and this month will see the start of experimen-
tal work which will be of interest to Antigua and to Montserrat-an
investigation of flying fish possibilities with the aid of two fishermen who
are coming from Barbados. But Antigua has been struck once again by
its dreaded enemy-drought; and the year 1953 has seen lower rainfall
between January and November than for the past twenty years. Even
though good rain has fallen recently, the outlook for 1]954 must inevita-
bly be gloomy.
In Montserrat I cannot but feel that the greatest achievement of
the year has been the establishment of an airstrip at Olveston, and



Ci I^r
I '










the initiation of a simple form of air service. The other major event has
been the Commission of Enqmury into the Cotton Industry, whose report
is now eagerly awaited.
I turn now to certain problems of the future which are of .ommon
interest to most of us in the Leeward Islands; and I should like to
mention in particular communications, development, and one aspect of
our system of government.
Every Presidency has been hampered by the problem of poor com-
munications, both by sea and )by air; and the problem has grown steadily
worse during the past year or two. The withdrawal of the Lady Boars,
the suspension of direct sailings of cargo ships from the United Kingdom,
and the continued absence of air communications in some of the islands
have all made things difficult for us. But there is reason for hope in
the future. I have been informed by the Managing IDirector of the
Harrison Line that, now that. steps are being taken to improve the pier
facilities in Basseterre and to dredge the Queen's Wharf in St. Join's,
.thero is every reason to suppose that r,,gular and direct sailingus of cargo
ships from the United Kilnglom will be resumed ill tile very near future.
We all hope that the Reg,;oni Economic Committee paved the way at
its last meeting for the inrrodulotion of inter-island shipping services on
a regular ;:nd adequate basis. (It was, I Ilink, particularly alpprlpriate
that the Chairman of the Committee at its last two meetings-when
this matter was discussed-were the Honourable the first Repr'sent;ative
Members for Antigua and Monitserrat-two of the Islands most Iffected
by lack of shipping). There is every reason to hope too that British
West Indian Airways may at least adopt the policy of operating smaller
planes to suit local conditions, thus brea;kiiin' away from the practice of
waiting to establish air services until we had constr. cted Lirge airfields
to suit their aircraft. The prospects of air communication for Anguilln,
Tortol: and Barbuda are now much brighter than they have ever been
befi re. I feel, therefore, that there is every reason to believe that 1954
will see much improvement in this problem of communications.
As regards development, I should like to congratulate the Presiden-
tial Governments for the excellent progress made with the execution of
their development programmes. A year or so ago I doubted whether it
would be possible in all cases to spend the money which has been provi-
ded under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act over the period
1946 to 1956. But now, despite delays in some cases-due largely to
the inadequacy of the staffs of Public Works Departments, it seems
reasonably certain that :I' the existing development programmes will be
completed by the end of 1955. It is particularly satisfactory to be able
to record the intention of Hler Majesty's Government (announced a short
time ago) to make further funds available for development over the five
years between 1955 and 19(i0. Programmes have been prepared in
St. Kitt-, Antigua and Montserrat setting out their requirements for the
new development period, and these have been submitted to the Comp-
troller prior to submission to the Secretary of State. The comparative
figures of requirements may be of interest. St. Kitts has estimated its
requirements at nearly .S6,0 0,000 (made up of $2,700,000 by way of
grant, s2'1,000 by vway of loan, iand 82,500,000 expenditure from local
funds). Antigua's requirements are about $5,700,000 made up of
$4,80(0,000 grant, $500,000 loan, and $200,000 from local funds.
Montserrat's requirements are nearly $2,000,000 made up of $1,500,000
grant and $360,000 loan. I hope to discuss the Virgin Islands' require-
ments on my visit to Tortola next week. These are large sums of money,
and thev reveal what large expenditure is still needed if we are to tackle
effective. l the many social :ad economic problems of the Leeward
Islands. We do not of course know to what extent Her Majesty's
Government will be able to meet our needs, but at least we have tile
assurance that the greatly increased tempo of development of the past few
years will he maintained in the future.
Fin;llY, I come to the last of the matters which I propose to
mention to-day-one of the problems cre :ted by our system of govern-
ment. May I first express appreciation for the way in which everyone-
or nearly everyone-both elected members and government officers have
tried to make the present constitu;inus work. I uam under no illusions
that there are some people whvlo are dissatisfiedd with the constitutional








3

progress which has been made up till now, and I am afraid that I am not
in a position to make them more satisfied to-day. As the Secretary of
State said last month in reply to a question in tile House of Commons,
he is still in consultation with me about a request made in another place
for constitutional changes. That is still the position. But, whether
people are dissatisfied with the present constitutions or not, they cannot
but agree that the effect of the present constitutions has been to increase
the impetus and the drive behind the machinery uf government. And I
feel that all of us should be grateful for the work done by those concerned
-both elected members and officials-in bringing this about. There
have been, as one could but expect, certain breakdowns and certain
frictions; but by and large I do feel that all concerned can feel that in
this past year the Leeward Islands have taken a big stride onwards
towards their ultimate goal of full responsibility.
There is only one matter which has given me cause for concern in
some qu:- 'rrs-though by no means in all. It is a mu:tter to which Her
Majesty's ( ,vernment-and indeed every Government in the Common-
wealth-attaches the highest importance; it is a point which was fully
recognized 'nd accepted at the Conference on West Indin Feederation in
April; and : is a point on which there will be no relaxation so long as
the British Government is concerned with the well-being of these islands.
I refer to the complete independence of the Civil Service from politics.
I have been frankly alarmed to observe some pointers which suggest
that this basic principle is not understood-or is even perhaps not
accepted-in all p:irts of the Leeward Islands. And I think it right to
bring to your notice once agiin the vital necessity of mtiiitaining this
principle in the future. I would like particularly to draw attention to
Chapter VI of the Plan for a British Caribbean Federation-a Plan
drawn up !. our representatives at the London Conference in April of
last year. That Chapter provides for the appointment ;itd removal of
public officts by the (Governor-General; it provides for the establishment
of a Public Service Commiission to advise the Governor-General on
appointments, promotions and dismissals; and it provides that no
member of the State Council or House of Representatives shall be a
member of the Public Service Commission. These are wise provisions if
the British principle of an independent Civil Service is to be followed.
I am glad to say that this principle has been accepted and followed in
some parts of the Colony. And I would urge those who do not
understand or accept this principle to study carefully the system which
has been accepted by their representatives for the future Federal
Government.
I have mentioned this matter not in any spirit of criticism, but
merely in an attempt to clear up any doubt or misunderstanding that
may exist. Indee-i I do not feel that there is any ground for criticism
to-day. The past year has been a year of progress-and a year of
progress mria.de the faster because of collaboration between the elected
representatives and the Civil Service. We have had disagreements; ind
we shall continue to have disagreements: but those disagreements will
not hinder still greater progress in the future if ,onlv we can all retain a
sense of proportion; if only we can try and understand the point of view
of the other fellow; if only we can ger away from this shocking practice
of attribiuing sinister motives to an\ onei with whose view we disagree;
