MATTERS ARISING OUT OF THE MINUTES.
Minutes of meeting of 20th February.
Item 50-Police Pay.
No. 67. Mr. Bonadie expressed dissatisfaction at the action of Government
with regard to the enquiry into the Police Force. He said that he was strongly
opposed to the policy of varying the decisions of Finance Committee without prior
reference to the Committee. He felt that the appointment of Brigadier
Mavrogordato was an infringement of the rights and privileges of the elected
members of Council who had, in Finance Committee, advised the appointment of
a Commission headed by either Major Maydon or Major Hobson.
Mr. McIntosh was in entire agreement with Mr. Bonadie's views in this
matter. He regarded it as a lack of courtesy on the part of the Administration
not to inform Finance Committee and members of Council before previous
decisions of those bodies were modified.
The Chairman explained that the urgency of the matter precluded prior
reference to the Committee. He stressed the point that the names of Major
Maydon and Major Hobson had been put forward merely as alternative
suggestions when the Committee had been informed of His Excellency's inability
to secure the services of a competent Police Officer outside the Colony and that
the overriding considerations, as agreed by Finance Committee, were that the
person appointed should be a senior experienced police officer, and that the
enquiry should be held with the least possible delay. Brigadier Mavrogordato, he
said was an able man who had conducted similar enquiries on former occasions.









Major Maydon's recently announced appointment to the Gambia might probably
h.ave been re3ponible for his being unavailable and in the circumstances it was
fortunate that His Excellency had been able eventually still to secure the services
of such a capable man, Brigadier Mavrogordato, as originally hoped for and
attempted. The Chairman said that the Commissioner's report was in the hands
of Government, and would no doubt soon be presented to Finance Committee for
discussion.

Item No. 57-Livestock Marketing Scheme.
No. C8. Mr. Duncan enquired whether there were any further developments
with regard to the Livestock Marketing Scheme, and was informed that Mr.
Young, Junior Fishery Officer, had gone to Trinidad with the first shipment of
animals.
Mr. Duncan expressed the hope that Mr. Young would not become in any way
involved in 'black market' entanglements in Trinidad, but the Chairman said
that he had been given specific instructions that all his actions should be in
conformity with the requirements of the laws of the Government of Trinidad, as
if he became involved in any way he would be treated as any other individual
a. .d could not take shelter under his position as an employee of this Government.
Mr. Ycung was made to understand that Government's action at this stage was
purely exploratory.

APPLICATION FROM MISS CLARICE MCCONNIE FOR REFUND FOR EXPENSES INCURRED IN
ATTENDING ART COURSE IN GRENADA.
No. 69. The Chairman read an application from Miss Clarice McConnie,
Assistant Mistress, Girls' High School, for a refund of expenses amounting to
SC8.20, incurred by her in attending a course in Art held in Grenada during the
period 14th to 17th November, 194%, by the British Council Art Officer.
In her application Miss McConnie claimed that before proceeding to Grenada
she had been promised by the then Education Officer, that on the completion of
the course, he would recommend to Government a refund of her expenses. Miss
McConnie had produced a certificate which gave no information apart from the
fact that she had attended the lectures. The Committee felt that, taking all the
facts into consideration, approval of the application would introduce a dangerous
precedent, and in the circumstances regretted their inability to grant the refund.

INTEREST ON LOAN TO MR. R. N. JACK.
No. 70. The Chairman informed the Committee that this matter was brought
back for a decision regarding the date of commencement of payment of interest.
He said that in the Agreement the Acting Crown Attorney had inserted that
interest should begin from the date of payment to Mr. Jack of the first instalment
cf the loan. The latter had however asked that interest should not begin until
repayment of the loan began; that is in September 1952.
The Chairman pointed out that this conformed to the usual practice in such
cases, and the Committee approved that interest should begin as from September,
1952.

SALARY OF MR. SIANT A. MOHAMMED, SCIENCE MASTER, GRAMMAR SCHOOL.
No. 71. With reference to previous discussion of this matter, the Chairman
pointed out that it would appear that there had been a misapprehension of the









facts. Finance Commnittee':seemed to: have, been~ under the, impression that Mr.
Mohammed was applying to be placed. in. the graduate scale while in fact he was
applying for the maximum of the non-graduate scale. The Headmaster, Grammar
School, had pointed this out and had asked that the matter be reconsidered 'as
Mr. Mohammed was an excellent master and if he were to resign it would be very
difficult to find a suitable replacement.
Finance Committee agreed to the grant of the maximum of the:non-graduate
scale-$1440-to Mr. Mohammed as from the 9th January, 1950, the date of his
confirmation in the post.

REPATRIATION OF
(a) Mathias"Campbell from Venezuela
(b) Ephraim Augustus Bucchan from Cuba.
No. 72. The Committee considered the applications for repatriation, at the
Coulo:,l expense; of these destitute Vincentians, both of whom had left the
Colony n'ore than twenty-five years ago. Corresponrdence- with the- British Consul
in Caracas had revealed that Mr. Campbell's repatriation-expenses together with
those of his wife and daughter would amount to some $400, while the British Vice-
COnsul at Santiago de Cuba had- estimated- Mr. Bucchanr's to be- in- the
neighbourhood of $260.
Mr. Bucchan's' mother had been written to by Government asking whether
she'-would bear the cost of his repatriation, but she- had replied that she was
herself old, destitute- and entirely dependent on' alms and" could- therefore
contribute nothing towards his repatriation expenses.
The view was expressed that the principle of the Colony having to bear the
cost of repatriation of'persons who had contributed nothing to theC Olon'y and
who had spent most of their useflil years abroad was wrong, and having regard
to the- Colony's unfavorable financial position, Finance. Committee did not
approve, the repatriation of.either' of the. parties at the Colony's expense..

OFFER OF SALE OF PROPERTIES TO GOVERNMENT
No. 73. The Chairmar-~mentioned for' the'information of the Committee that
Dr. Murray had offered to sell or lease. his house to Government. He had not
expressed his offer in writing, but had spoken to His Honour Mr. Cbutts about.it.
An offer of sale' of his property by Mr. Noel Agard was also mentioned by. the
Chairman who felt that these matters should be left for consideration on the
return to-the Colony of the substantive Administrator.
Mr. DeFreitas objected strenuously to, Government's renting or: leasing
properties. If Government wanted to provide houses- for its officers: these 'huses
should either be purchased, or constructed: by Government.
Finance Committee agreed that the general question of purchase- ofproperties
by Government should be thoroughly discussed separately.

MESSENGER, PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND PROBATION DEPARTMENT,
No. 74: Finance Committee considered the question of3 provision, for the
services of a messenger for the'Public Assistance: and. Probation- Department,. It
was agreed that. a. messenger was necessary and that one should, be engaged; and
for the time being be paid from, the Acting Appointments Vote;.









F.A.O. WORKING PARTY ON PEST INFESTATION PROBLEMS.
No. 75. Finance Committee felt that pest infestation problems in regard to
stored food were not sufficiently serious in St. Vincent to warrant contribution
from Colony funds towards the expenses of the proposed survey to be undertaken
by the Food and Agriculture Organisation. It was agreed that such funds as the
Colony could afford should be devoted to investigations into pests affecting cotton
and arrowroot.
CREATION OF JUNIOR CLERKSHIP, AUDIT DEPARTMENT.
No. 76. Finance Committee approved the erection of a junior clerkship in the
Audit Department to enable that Department to undertake the auditing of the
accounts of the Central Housing and Planning Authority.
LOAN TO PORT ELIZABETH TOWN BOARD.
No. 77. Finance Committee ratified the grant of a loan of $250 to the Port
Elizabeth Town Board to enable them to meet certain commitments pending the
collection of their revenue.

EXPENSES OF DELEGATE TO CONFERENCE OF SUPPLY OFFICERS IN LONDON, JUNE 1949.
No. 78. Finance Committee agreed that the Colony was committed to this
expenditure, but strong objection was raised to the expenses being borne equally
by Grenada, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent. It was felt that they should be
apportioned either on a population basis or on a revenue basis as is usual in the
case of other joint expenses incurred on behalf of the group.

RBVOTE OF $500 PROVIDED IN 1948 IN CONNECTION WITH VISITING M1EBICAL SERVICE FOR
UNION ISLAND.
No. 79. The Chairman explained that this amount appearing in the Grenada
accounts which had only recently been received had been provided by Special
Warrant in 1948, but this authority had lapsed. Finance Committee approved the
revote of the amount.
APPOINTMENTS TO THE CIVIL SERVICE.

No. 80. Mr. Bonadie raised the question of recent appointments to the Civil
Service. He said that he was of the opinion that the Appointments and
Promotions Boards were being ignored and first appointments were being made
at the whim and fancy of a single individual. He was further opposed to what
appeared to him a growing practice of employing married women in preference to
unmarried ones-a large number of whom was on the waiting list. In his opinion
single women should have priority over married women. He stressed the view
that only in cases of emergency should appointments be made without reference
to the Board.
Mr. Brisbane observed that the question of women continuing in the service
after marriage had been considered before, and suggested that the matter might
be re-opened.
The Chairman assured the Committee that there was no intention of
by-passing or ignoring the Appointments and Promotions Boards, but that very
often it was necessary for certain acting and temporary appointments to be made,
which on account of the exigencies of the situation could not be referred to the
Boa.ds.






5

ROAD TO THE QUARRY.
No. 81. Mr. DeFreitas drew attention to the part of the road to the Quarry
which for several years remained unoiled because both Government and the
Kingstown Board contended that it was not their responsibility. Mr. DeFreitas
was advised to make representations regarding this matter to the Board.
No. 82. At the end of the day's business Mr. Brisbane offered his
congratulations to the Chairman on his appointment to act as Administrator of
the Colony during the absence of Mr. Coutts in Barbados. Though the
appointment was only for a short period he thought it was evidence of the strong
confidence reposed in his ability. These sentiments were unanimously endorsed
by the Committee.

HENRY H. WILLIAMS,
Acting Clerk of Council.

Confirmed the 4th day of April 1950.

W. F. COUTTS,
Chairman.
