MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF FINANCE COMMITTEE HELD AT

S O. D. BRISBANE, Nominated Member, (On leave of absence),
S E. A. C. HUGHES, Nominated Member, (Excused).



GENERAL ELECTIONS, 1951.
No. 152. (Mr. R. N. Jack, Labour Commissioner, and Mr. G. L. E. Barker,
Crown Surveyor, were present by the Chairman's direction).
Mr. Jack's report on his visit to Trinidad, together with the estimates of the
cost of the election had been circulated to members previous to the meeting, and
were used as the basis for discussion. Mr. Jack also provided members with his
suggestions for delimitation of the Electoral Districts of the Colony, based on an
equitable division of population and on natural boundaries as far as possible,
between the constituencies. With the assistance of Mr. Barker he pointed out
the districts on a map. The Committee agreed with the divisions suggested by
Mr. Jack, but recommended that the name Suburban District should be changed
to the St. George Electoral District.
Mr. Jack gave a full explanation of the details of the programme of work to be
executed before the holding of the elections. He pointed cut that there was a
great deal of printing to be done, and suggested that some of it might have to be
done in Trinidad. For this reason he could give only a very tentative estimate for
this item of expenditure. The estimate as set out in Appendix 3 of the Report was
accepted by the Committee.
It was felt that because of the cost of a general election the life of the Council
should be for a greater period than three years. The majority were in favour of
a life of five years' duration, while Mr. Hadley favoured a period of four years.
The question of the literacy test was again discussed. The Chairman
informed the Committee that the Secretary of Stute had left the decision entirely
in the hands of the local Legislatures.






2

Mr. McIntosh reaffirmed his opposition to the retention of a literacy test. He
said that he had recently held meetings in several places in the Colony, and in
every case the people were all in favour of adult suffrage without a literacy test.
The Committee, with the exception of Mr. Hadley voted for the abolition of the
test.
Mr. Jack informed the Committee that he had already placed an order for
symbols to be used in the elections. Mr. McIntosh felt very strongly that
photographs of candidates and not symbols should be used. It was agreed that
photiogr-aphs would be ideal, but several practical difficulties precluded their use.
The Committee commended Mr. Jack for the thoroughness with which he had
so far performed the duties of Supervisor of Elections.

CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES.
No. 153. The Minutes of the meeting of Finance Committee held on the 30th
May, 1950, which had previously been circulated were confirmed without
amendment.
ADVISORY COMMITTEES OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.
T3. 154. Finance Committee discussed the question of the setting up of
Consultative Committees of the Legislative Council as recommended by the
Governor in his address to the Grenada Legislative Council on the 30th March,
1950.
Mr. Duncan vigorously opposed the establishment of these Committees. He
felt that the inclusion of Heads of Departments in the personnel of the Committees
robbed them of the character of being true Committees of the Legislative Council.
He stressed the fact that the Royal Commission under Lord Moyne had expressly
recommended them for the larger Colonies, none of which, with the exception of
Blitish Guiana had given them a trial. He did not think that they were practical
for application in the smaller Colonies. He thought that the fact that the
suggestion was made as long as eleven years ago, and had not been sooner put
into effect was an indication of its disfavour, together with the fact of its failure
in Ceylon. As the suggestion clearly did not fit into the scheme of Federation he
was of the opinion that it should not be adopted.
Mr. Bonadie did not agree with the views expressed by Mr. Duncan. He
thought the idea good as it would give the elected representatives of the people
an opportunity to help in the direction of policy. He said that the matter had
been discussed and approved by a meeting of Windward Islands legislators in
Grenada in 1944.
The Chairman said that his own view was that these Committees were
desirable. He pointed out that in the recently appointed Committees in Grenada,
apart from a single Head of Department in each case, the members were all
unofficial members of the Council. He did not think that the present
arrangement whereby the whole Government policy issued from the
Administration was the best. These Committees would afford an opportunity to
members to take an active part in the shaping of policy.
Mr. McIntosh supported the views expressed by Mr. Duncan. He said that a
ministerial system should be initiated instead.
A vote was eventually taken, Messrs. Bonadie, De Freitas and Hadley being
for, and Messrs. Joachim, Duncan and McIntosh against the establishment of the
Committees.








SURVEYS.
No. 155. (The Superintendent of Public Works was present by the Chairman's
direction).
The Chairman explained that there was an urgent need for the carrying out
of surveys in connection with the revision of the Land and House Tax Rolls, the
demarcation of forest boundaries, and of Crown Lands, as well as for the carrying
out of general surveys of the island to tie up with the original geodetic surveys
carried out by the Royal Engineers and the more recent Air Surveys. The work
involved would take a period of at least three years.
The Superintendent of Works stressed the need for the surveys. He said that
the Land and House Tax Rolls had not been revised since 1934, and as a result
Government was losing revenue. There was, he pointed out, very little
information on which to base rates for the supply of water by the Central Water
Distribution Authority. He said that the whole matter of surveys should be taken
as a single problem, and its satisfactory solution would mean the employment of
three surveyors for a period of three years, that is, one in addition to the Crown
Surveyor and the Assistant Crown Surveyor. To attract good candidates higher
salaries than those at present paid would have to be offered.
The Chairman felt that increased revenue accruing from a more correct
assessment of taxes resulting from the revision of the Land and House Tax Rolls
should partly offset the expenditure involved. He suggested that the necessary
surveyor or surveyors should be engaged on three year contracts, renewable if
necessary.
Finance Committee agreed in principle.

REPATRIATION OF DISTRESSED VINCENTIANS.
No. 156. With reference to Item 134 of the Minutes of the meeting of the
30th May, 1950, the Chairman informed the Committee that the Foreign Office had
ruled that the Colony should bear the repatriation expenses of Mr. James from
Managua. He had accordingly authorised his repatriation, as well as those of Mr.
Bucchan from Cuba and Mr. Campbell from Venezuela. Finance Committee

origin should not be compelled to bear the repatriation expenses, and suggested
that this matter should be taken up with the appropriate authorities.

SPECIAL GRATUITY TO POOR RELIEF AND PROBATION OFFICER.
No. 161. The Chairman said that up to a point Mr. John had been performing
the duties of Poor Relief and Probation Officer satisfactorily. It was felt however
that to carry out the extended duties of the post it was necessary to have a
younger and more energetic man. According to the terms of his employment Mr.
John's services could be terminated simply by giving three months' notice, but he
had considered his position and felt that Mr. John should be given a gratuity. The
Acting Treasurer pointed out that according to the new Pensions Ordinance a
gratuity was payable after seven years of service. Mr. John's service as Poor
Relief and Probation Officer was five years.

Finance Committee agreed in principle to the grant of a special gratuity and
asked the Chairman to discuss with the Colonial Treasurer.

PAPER ON CONSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT PREPARED BY HONOURABLE E. DUNCAN.
No. 162. (Mr. Duncan withdrew from the meeting during discussion of this
item).

The Chairman said that Mr. Duncan had hoped to be able to sell a. number of
copies of the paper on Constitutional Development which he had prepared for
laying on the table on the occasion of the commemoration of the twenty-fifth
anniversary of elected representation. He, however, felt that this might lead to
misinterpretation by the public, who might be led to think that any member of
Council could prepare and sell a Government paper. His feeling was that all
receipts from the sale of the paper should be paid into revenue and that Mr.
Duncan should be granted an ex-gratia payment on the grounds that the
preparation of the paper had involved ten days very detailed and hard work.

Finance Committee agreed to an ex-gratia payment of $48 to Mr. Duncan.
