26th July, 1955.
(Conf. 33/1951).

N,. :i0().

As already reported the Talks held by the Secretary of State for the Colonies
with the Delegation headed by Mr. N. W. Maniey, have ended with agreement
on a scheme of assistance for the Jamaica Banana Industry.
The details of this 5-year Scheme are set out in correspondence with Mr.
Manley which is now published. The gist of it is that a Price Assistance Fund
will be set up by the Jamaica Banana Board to be used as need arises to cushion
the effects of declining prices in the United Kingdom market on growers in
Jamaica. While the average annual price rules above an agreed level, the Board
will make a contribution to the Fund. If they fall below an agreed level, pay-
ment will be made out of the Fund. If such payment became necessary before
the Fund can be built up from the Board's contribution, they will be under-
written by the Jamaica Government. The amount so underwritten will repre-
sent 8s. 4d. in the pound of a fall in the landed price in the United Kingdom;
(6s. 8d. in the pound will be covered by, an automatic reduction in freight and
commission charges; the remaining 5s. in the pound will be borne by the Indus-
try itself). The Government assistance will be in the form of a loan to the
Board. Since the payment involved might place an undue strain on the Jamaica
Government's Finance, Her Majesty's Government have agreed to make avail-
able, by way of an interest free loan to the Jamaica Government as need' arises,
4/5 of the money required up to a sum which has initially been fixed at 1,000,000.
This assistance will be provided from Funds under C.D. & W. Act over and above
the allocation already made to Jamaica.
Payment into and out of the Price Assistance Fund will be made in accord-
ance with an agreed, schedule. The effect of the schedule will be that no pay-
ment either way will be made in the first year if the annual average landed
price is between 70 and 67. 10s. per ton. Above that range the industry will
contribute to the Fund at an agreed rate. Below that range payment from the
Fund will be made at the same rate to enable the Board to cushion the effect
of any price reduction on growers. If there is a decline in the average annual
price this will be taken into account in fixing the point in subsequent years
at which payment into and out of the Fund will be made. The actual cost of
the scheme in terms of loans by the Government of the United Kingdom to
Jamaica will depend on the course of prices over the coming 5 years. The
scheme contains provisions for revenue in particular circumstances.
In releasing the above, the Government points out that negotiations for
schemes of assistance in the Banana Industry in the Windward Islands are
expected to take place shortly. In the London Talks which have just concluded,
the Windward Islands were represented at first by Mr. H. D. Shillingford and
later by Mr. I. N. Shillingford both of Dominica.
