Supplement to the Leeward Islands Gazette

Of Thursday the 14th day of January, 1954.

REPLY of Unofficial Members of the General Legislative Council
to the Address of His Excellency the Governor delivered at
thoe ceting- held on tho 6th January, 1954.

)'our Excellency,
Your address has been studied by the unofficial members of the
Council and it is with interest that we comment on some of the points
mentioned by Your Excellency.
We are gratified to learn of the work done in the construction of a
vehicular road in the Virgin Islands and it is sincerely hoped that this
will eventually lead to the establishment of air communications, and the
furtherance of economic development in the Presidency. Your efforts to
bring about improved relationship between the British and American
Virgin Islands are greatly appreciated and we trust that in the near
future this outstanding question will reach a satisfactory conclusion.
The establishment of a Secondary School in Anguilla should greatly
improve the educational standards in the island, thus providing a much
wider scope for its development. The work of the Central Housing and
Planning Authority in St. Kitts, is noted, and we look forward to con-
tinued progress in the field of providing improved housing accommoda-
tion. Public Health developments in the Presidency of St. Kittts-Nevis
and Anguilla will no doubt be pursued with increasing energy.
We regret that the sugar cane crop of Antigua for 1954 has been
hampered by the drought; a condition quite beyond human control;
nev'.rth'less it is hopd th!:t the economic prospects of the island will
eventually be brighter than can at present be envisaged. It is expected
that the efforts in the housing and the improvement of other vital services
such as hospital accommodation and water supplies in Antigua will not
be relaxed.
It is felt that Your Excellency's initiative in the matter of air com-
muniention in the island of Montserrat has undoubtedly contributed in a
large measure to the work of building an air strip at Olveston. Another
event of major importance to the Presidency is the appointment of the
Comnuiision of Enquiry into the cotton industry. We trust that the
Report will lead to better understanding to all concerned.
We endorse the steps tlat are proposed to improve generally sea
and air communications between the islands and warmly welcome the
hint that Anguilla, Tortola and Barbuda will be duly considered.
The prospects for future development in the various Presidencies
should, to a very large extent, furrthr the economic and social develop-
ments so badly needed, and it is therefore important that amounts which
will he made available from Colonial Development and Welfare funds be
indicated to the Legislatures as soon as possible.
We note Your Excellenc\'s commnelnts regarding constitutional
changes and appreciate the realization that constitutional advances
attained in the larger colonies urge further consideration in these parts
regarding the limitations of our present constitution.
Your Excellency's remarks regarding the civil service and politics
are noted particularly in view of the operation of the Committee System
of Government in the Colony. We look forward to the realization of
greater confidence between the official and unofficial elements of Govern-
ment. We regret that the long requested Sugar Factory for Nevis
has again to be regarded as a hope-though we note the reference made
to the preparation of plans which are now being discussed. We suggest
that the matter be given the most urgent consideration and a decision
made solely on economic grounds.
As in the past we wish to reiterate our determination to play our
part fully in the promotion of policies designed to bring about the
general improvement of the communities of the Colony.
