PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT.

CANADA/WEST INDIES TOKEN IMPORT SCHEME.

Arrangements are now nearing completion for k token .import scheme on
similar lines to that in operation last year, designed to re-open the West Indian
and Bahamas market on a limited scale to certain Canadian and United States
goods which have traditionally been. purchased by these Colonies. Import of
many of these goods have been drastically curtailed recently owing tb the need
for the whole sterling area to conserve dollars. Although the need for dollar
economy still exists, His Majesty's Government, nevertheless, considers that the
particularly close trade links which have always existed between the West Indies
and North America justify the introduction of this scheme. Consequently greater
opportunity will now be given for import into the West Indies of these traditional.
lines of'goods.
The Scheme is being drawn up jointly with Canada and the United States
Governments after consultation with the West Indian and Bahamas Authorities,
and will take effect not later than 1st January, 1951.
As far as Canada is concerned, the scheme has been designed so as to assure
individual exporters in Canada of Import Licences into West Indian Colonies 'and-
Bahamas for an amount of goods equal to a specified percentage of the average
value of his exports to the West Indies in 1946/1947/1948 provided of course that he
has found a willing buyer, i,e., he is competitive as to price, quality, delivery, etc.
The scheme does not preclude importing into Colonial Territories of more than
.these minimum percentages, so that those territories which are already licenced
to import in excess of this minimum level may continue to do so provided it is in
accordance with the Import Control Policy.
The details of the scheme so far as the United States of America are concerned
are still under discussion by the United States Authorities, but its purpose is to
assure both Canada and the United States interests of the same opportunity of
recovering a proportion of their export trade to the West Indies in the base years
1946-48.
Agreement has been reached upon bulk commodities to be. included in the
scheme, and items specified below are some typical examples. The possibility of
adding further items is however being, considered in connection with the United
States participation in the scheme.
The first group of items include meat, canned fish, milk and its products,
foodstuffs, lumber and wood products, paper and fertilisers. So far as Canada is
concerned, it has already been agreed that the West Indian Colonies will be ready
to issue licences of import for each of these types of goods-for not less than 50%
by value of the amount exported by- individual' Canadian Exporters during the
base years 1046-48.
The second group includes a. wide range of miscellaneous foodstuffs and
marnufiA:c-.red goods. In.the case of these goods the Colonies will be ready for'
licensed imports for up to 331/3% by value of the base years average.
The introduction of this scheme is welcomed as a significant step towards
restoring trade links between North America and the West Indies, which have in
the past been of such benefit to the countries concerned.
A further announcement giving full particulars will be made as. soon as
poisi'-l.. The operation of the scheme v. ill b. reviewed after an initial period of
6 nmcntlh! so that any necessary adjustment may be made in the light of actual
experience.
The Colonies concerned are Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, British Guiana,
British Honduras, Leeward Islands, Windward Islands, and the Bahamas.

A NOTE ON THE MANURIAL VALUE
OF "BITTIIE WATER" FOIR
IRRIGATION.

(Issued by the Department of Agri-
culture).
This note has been prepared, as a
result of observations made by the De-
parunent of Agriculture of the luxuri-
ant growth and increased yield of Ele-
phant grass at Richmond Estate irrigated
by the waste or bittie" water from the
Richmond Arrowroot Factory during
the crop season.
In order to determine the reason for
this unusual response, samples of the
"bittio" water used for irrigation were
sent to Professor Hardy at the Imperial
College of Tropical Agriculture, Trini-
dad, for analysis, and his report has
now been received.
It has been found that :
(a) The Nitrogen content per 1,000
gallons is equivalent to a dressing
of some 10- Ibs. of sulphate of
Ammonia ;
(b) The Phosphate content per 1,000
gallons is equivalent to a dressing
of about 2.- lbs. of Superphos-
phate :
an d
(c) The Potnsh content per 1,000 gal-
lons, is equivalent to a dressing of
some 3 lbs. Sulphate of Potash.
It is estimated that approximately
80,000 gallons of water are used daily
in the Richmond Factory for processing
arrowroot starch. Accordingly, it can
be assumewi for all practical purposes,-
that equivalent daily applications by
irrigation, of the following quantities
'of fertiliser are made:-
Sulphate of Ammonia 840 lbs.
Superphosdphate 200 Ibs.
Snlphate of Potash 240 lbs.
At present, almost all the waste or
" bitti-e" water from arrowroot factories
in St. Vincent runs out to sea. In view
of the above-mentioned facts, it is
hoped that all owners of arrowroot fac-
tories will adopt suitable measures where
practicable to make use of the "bittie"
water for man rial purposes.
