MEETING OF COMMONWEALTH MINISTERS ON SUPPLY AND
PRODUCTION MATTERS.

The final session of the Meeting of Commonwealth Ministers concerned
with Supply and Production was held in London on 27th September. The
purpose of the meeting was to exchange views and ideas on the problems that
faced the whole Commonwealth on the production and exchange of both raw
materials and manufactured goods.













SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 23 OCTOBER, 1951.-(No. 55). 323


2. Following are the agreed conclusions of the meeting:-
"1. The meeting agreed that, if efforts to provide rising standards of
living both inside and outside the Commonwealth were not to be impeded, it
was equally important both to ensure the continuous development of supplies of
raw' materials to keep pace with the expansion of industrial capacity and to
maintain the free flow of exports of capital goods and other essential manu-
factures.
It was generally agreed that the International Materials Conference was
doing valuable work in carrying out the functions for which it was set up and
that it should continue to receive the support of Commonwealh countries both
in arranging measures for dealing with current shortage and allocation problems-
and for such other matters as might be agreed to be appropriate. Pakistan and
Oeylon, not being members of the Central Group or of any of the Commodity
Committees of the International Materials Conference, expressed no views on
this subject.g_
It was generally agreed that in the interests of the steady and long term
expansion of raw materials production and of maintaining sound and stable
economies in both producing and consuming countries there was need to avert
violent price fluctuations. This applied not only to the prices of raw materials,
but also to those of manufactured goods. The range of prices and purchasing
arrangements should be such as would encourage long term production without
discouraging consumption.
(The Pakistan representative reserved the position of his Delegation on this
sub-paragraph).
2. The Meeting reviewed the possibilities of increasing supplies of raw
materials available to the Commonwealth and recognized the importance of
Commonwealth producing countries increasing their production of raw materials
so as to meet the requirements of consuming countries. It noted with satis-
faction that in several Commonwealth countries plans were well advanced for-
expanding supplies of certain materials which were in particularly short supply
including copper, zinc, tungsten, manganese and nickel. In these materials the
Commonwealth made a substantial contribution not only in meeting its own
needs but those of the rest of the world as well. Nevertheless, a great deal more
required to be done. and could be done but the material factor toward achieve-
ment was the provision of capital equipment without which, in fact, no early
increase could be obtained. It was agreed that arrangements should be made
for the practical measures necessary for these developments to be pursued in
discussion between individual countries.
3. The Meeting recognized the need ior continued and increased supplies
of capital and other essential goods both for the economic development of
Commonwealth countries, having regard to their different stages of development,
and for stimulating the contribution which they could malde towai ds increasing
supplies of raw materials. It took note of the fact that, despite the limitations
which the progress of rearmament and the present shortage of certain materials
imposed upon the United Kingdom's exports in this field, the United Kingdom
hoped to maintain these exports at the 1950 level. It was also noted that the
present causes of supply difficulties were likely to bear less heavily upon the
exports of United Kingdom consumer goods. supplies of which in many parts of
the Commonwealth assisted in the improvement of living standards and served
as a necessary incentive to production.
4. Arrangements were agreed upon for the fuller exchange of information
for facilitating deliveries of United Kingdom exports to Commonwealth
countries."

The attention of importers is drawn to
the following extract from the Post Office
Ordinance, 1938, on the subject of Unde-
liverable Parcels from Abroad" :-
"150. Parcels received from other
countries, except the United States of
America, which remain undelivered af-
ter 15 days (exclusive of the day of ar-
rival) and which do not bear a definite
request for abandonment, shall be re-
turned to the country of origin.
151. A parcel bearing alternative ad-
dresses shall be held for fifteen days at
the disposal of the first addressee and
for 15 days at the disposal of the second
addressee, before being treated as
abandoned (if so marked) or returned
to the country of origin.
152. Parcels received from the Unit-
ed States which are unclaimed after 30
days shall be returned to that country.
153. If at any time while a parcel
remains in the possession of the Colo-
nial Postmaster it becomes offensive or
injurious it may forthwith be dealt
with or disposed of in such manner as
the Colonial Postmaster may in his dis-
cretion direct or authorise notwith-
standing that the provisions of these.
Regulations as to the return of such
parcel have not been or have only par-
tially been complied with."
These provisions in the law have not
been rigidly enforced for many years and
the result has been that many importers
have permitted their parcels to lie at the
Post Office for months, and even years in
some cases, thereby causing an accumu-
lation of packages which now greatly ex-
ceeds the space available in the Post Of-
fice for the storage of parcels.
Arising out of the recent Organisa-
tion & Methods survey at the Post Of-
fice, it has now been decided to enforce


the laws quoted above more rigidly than
The Rlverend GlORCIs \VILLTAM has been the case in the past. Until the
LEWIS as a Marri:ige Officer (f lth wholeI end of this year, therefore, the following
Colony with effect from the 22nd Octo- procedure will be followed:-
her, 1951. (1) Thirty days after the receipt of
23rd October, 1951. a package in the Post Office a printed
notice from the Post Office will be
(J. 22/1951). served on the importer and/or the Bank














326 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 23 OCTOBER, 1951.-(No. 55).


wherever the Bank may be involved
stating that, unless the package is
cleared from the Post Office within the
succeeding thirty days, it will be re-
turned to sender. No further notice
will be sent, and the importer must
then assume at the end of this period
of grace, for which, it will be observed,
no provision is made within the exist-
ing laws, that the package will be re-
turned.
(2) The Postmaster will, however, re-
tain a discretionary power to retain the
package for a further period not ex-
ceeding thirty days if the importer
proves to his satisfaction that-
(i) necessary documents concerning
the package involved have not
yet been received, or
(ii) some error on the part of the
sender would make withdrawal of
the package from the Post Office
work a clear hardship on the im-
porter, or
a discretionary power may in
equity be exercised.
This temporary concession will cease
at the end of this year, and, as from the
beginning of next year, the warning no-
tice will be served twenty-one days after
the receipt of the package, and, if it is
not claimed within the following nine
days, it will then be returned.
It is normally the duty of the importer
to keep in touch with the movement of
his merchandise and to assure himself of
the approximate date of its arrival in the
Colony and, in that connection, he would
make enquiries at the Post Office and/or
the Bank where the latter is concerned.
It will be appreciated therefore that any
warning notices sent under the above
procedure are merely a courtesy service
and.are not obligatory.
Importers are requested so to arrange
their business that the need for returning
unclaimed and uncleared packages will
be reduced to the minimum.
