No. 403.
THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS.

1058 will be a vital year for the people of the West Indies and the calendar
will be full of red letter days. One of the most important will be Tuesday, the
25th of March. For on that day, in every island, the first federal elections
will be held. Every West Indian will want, on that day, to use his vote to elect
the best possible government for the region for the next five years. By voting,
he will be fulfilling the responsibility to which he was committed when, at the
Conference in London, on the 23rd of February, 1956, delegates from all the
islands of the West Indies signed a document binding the ten Unit territories of
the West Indies together in a Federation.
The ten Units comprising the new Federation are Antigua, Barbados, Domin-
ica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla, St. Lucia, St.
Vincent and Trinidad and Tobago. Although divided by many miles of water,
modern means of communication, particularly the aeroplane and wireless have
brought these islands much closer together in recent years.
It is possible to move from one island to another without feeling any sense
of dislocation or need for that special effort to find one's feet which travellers
to foreign lands experience. A Barbadian quickly feels at home in Jamaica
and a Grenadian in Trinidad. There are a great number of superficial differences
but these are not as strong as the many things that the islands have in common.
History has helped to create a recognisable West Indian pattern and the
variety of customs and habits brought in the past four centuries from Europe,
Africa, India and China are beginning to mould in exciting combinations which
may well be the beginnings of a new culture.
In many ways, one can see that the islands are now ready for the new venture
to which they are committed-Federation. The political development of the
islands has moved along parallel lines and it would be true to say that the people
have proved that they understand and know how to use to advantage the
machinery of a constitutional democracy. There have been local variations
from one island to the other. The Legislature, in Jamaica and Barbados, for
instance, has two chambers; while in Trinidad there is a single House. But in
all the islands government has been based on the concept of parliamentary
democracy which had its foundation, many years ago, in Britain, in the Houses
of Parliament.
Democratic government is perhaps the most highly developed form of gov-
ernment that man has yet evolved and it takes a long time to develop and

flourish. It is based on the right of every citizen to have a say in the making
of the laws which govern his life. The right to vote has been extended to West
Indians very gradually. Since the second World War, however, there has been
considerable acceleration. Today, in Jamaica, there is almost complete internal
autonomy and the establishment of a cabinet system on the British pattern
will soon be instituted. Barbados and Trinidad can be expected to achieve a
similar status without delay. In some of the smaller Units, a longer period may
elapse before they achieve constitutional parity with the larger islands. But
local differences in the degree of self-government attained by each unit will
not affect the federal developments that are taking place. These developments
will in fact mean a considerable advancement of the status of every unit. For
Federation is almost the final step on the road to complete self-government, a
road which all the peoples of the West Indies have travelled so hopefully, so long!
It is generally accepted that within five years from its inception, the Federation
will ask for complete independence and to be admitted as a full and equal member
of the British Commonwealth with the status of a Dominion. Consequently,
no-one should under-rate the tremendous importance of the first federal elections.
The most pressing need at the present time is to make as many people as
possible aware of what federation is all about. Although many conferences and
committee meetings have taken place since the first historic occasion at Montego
Bay in 1947, certain aspects of federation have always seemed more attractive
for public discussion. The choice of a capital site has held a predominant interest
in the minds of most people. Now that it has been irrevocably settled that the
capital will be cited in Trinidad, more attention can be paid to other and equally
important aspects of federation.
Perhaps, even at this late stage, there are people who are still asking "What
is federation?" In answer to that direct question, the short answer is that it is
a new government which has been set up with powers to deal with some of
the problems which the islands have in common. It does not completely supersede
the existing governments but it will be given certain powers of its own. The
existing governments will continue to exist and while they will be known as
Governments of the Territories, the new government will be called the Federal
Government.
At many of the conferences and meetings that have been held in the past,
one of the main items on the agenda has been the draft Constitution which in
great detail defines the relationship of the Federal and Territorial Governments.
The subjects on which the Federal Government will have power to legislate are
mainly contained in two lists, called the Exclusive Legislative List and the
Concurrent Legislative List.
Let us take the Exclusive List first. On it can be found such subjects as
Defence, Immigration and -Emigration from the Federation and University College
of the West Indies. Only the Federal Legislature will have power to make laws
on these subjects. Although the Territorial Legislatures will have no contr-1
over these matters, no doubt there will be frequent consultations between an
governments
Then there is the Concurrent Legislative List, with respect to subjects on
this list, both the Federal and the Territorial Governments can make laws. In
the case of inconsistency between any Federal and territorial law on the subject,
the Federal Constitution provides that the Federal law will prevail to the extent
of the inconsistency. For example, one of the subjects on the Concurrent
Legislative List is Civil Aviation. If the Federal Government decides to make a
law on this subject, it will hold good for all the Units, although before
any such step was taken there would be thorough consultation between the
Federal and Territorial Governments.
Finally there are a host of subjects which are neither on the Exclusive,
nor on the Concurrent Legislative List. On these subjects, the Territorial
Governments retain all their power to make laws and in fact these subjects
cover a large part of matters affecting the everyday lives of the people of each
territory.
In certain quarters, the criticism has been offered that Federation is going
to be too costly for the West Indies. This is simply not true. In the first five
years, the cost will be relatively small. The maximum annual revenue which
it is permissible to raise from the Territorial Governments by mandatory levy
plus the profits from currency together would be slightly more than $10 million.
This must be related to a total revenue of approximately 200 million dollars for
all the federating territories. Perhaps you would like to know how much of
this cost your island would have to bear each year for the next five years. When
looking at these figures it is well to remember that they are maximum figures
which include provision for a Federal reserve and that the actual cost may be
much less. Here are the proportions falling to the Territorial Governments:-

9,120,000 1,100,000 10,220,000

There is one qualification to bear in mind when considering these figures.
Several of the items of expenditure on the federal budget in this first period
will be simply a transfer of existing financial commitments in respect of such
items as the University College of the West Indies, the Shipping Services, the
expenses of the Overseas Commissions in the United Kingdom and Canada.
In fact the Governments were committed to an expenditure of $4,785,000 for these
services in the year 1958. When the cost of these Services, which would have
to be paid in any event, is subtracted from the mandatory levy, we get the
true figure of the new provision which each territory will be called on to make
to the Federal Government:-
Jam aica ...... ...... ...... ...... 2,175,000
Trinidad & Tobago ...... ...... ...... 2,413,000
Barbados ...... ...... ...... ...... 453,000
Grenada ...... ...... ...... ...... 49.000
St. Vincent ...... ...... ...... ...... 41,000
St. Lucia ...... ...... ...... ...... 70,000
Dom inica ...... ...... ...... ...... 82,000
Antigua ...... ...... 62,000
St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla ...... ...... 76,000
M ontserrat ...... ...... ...... ...... 14,000
From these figures, it is clear that federation will impose no great financial
burden on the Territorial Governments, in the first five-year period at any rate.
What happens later is a matter for the people of the West Indies to decide. It
may well be that by planning at a federal level with the help of expert advisers,
considerable benefits may accrue to the Territorial Governments in relation
to their development programmes.
Then there is the possibility of a Federal Government providing the stability
to attract capital from abroad in the way of loans and investments. All this is
by way of a background to the prime function of the new Federal Govern-
ment which is to administer, and make laws on, certain specified subjects
for the mutual benefit of the federating islands. It will be our duty as
citizens of the West Indies to obey the laws made by the Federal Government.
For we, as citizens, have a hand in making there laws, or to put it another way,
the laws are subject to our control. By exercising our democratic right to vote,
we choose the men who make the laws. This is the purpose of the federal elections
which will be held on March the 25th 1958. They will give us an opportunity to
choose the Legislators who will direct the affairs of the Federal Government.
Voting in an election is no new experience for West Indians. The people
of each island have experienced from time to time the fervour of election cam-
paigns, have joined the many parties with their different platforms, have listened
to the various candidates with their manifestoes and promises, their programmes
and panaceas, have shared the defeats and victories. What is unique about the
federal elections is that it will be the first time that all West Indians will be
taking part in the same election, will be voting in every island on the same day.
How will the successful candidates fit into the Fedetal Government? To
understand this it is necessary to discuss for a moment the nature of the Federal
Legislature. This is how the Constitution describes it: "The legislative power
of the Federation shall be vested in a Federal Legislature consisting of Her
Majesty, a Senate and a House of Representatives". If you read your newspapers
every day or listen to the news on the radio, you will know that Her Majesty
has appointed Lord Hailes to represent her as the Governor-General of the West
Indies. The Governor-General has certain vital functions to perform in connec-















314 SAINT VINCENT TUESDAY, 27 AUGUST, 1957.-(No. 43).


tion with the Legislature. One of the most important of his duties is to appoint
the members of the Senate. Before he makes these appointments, however, he
must consult the Governor of each territory concerning the members for that
territory and the Governor must consult his Executive Council. The Governor-
General is not bound to accept the advice so obtained. He may exercise his
discretion with regard to each appointment. It is fruitless to try to anticipate
what the Governor-General will do or who he will appoint. It is much more
important that we are clear in our minds as to what he has the right to do. The
Constitution gives him the right to appoint two members for each territory. There
is one exception, Montserrat, which is entitled to one member. Altogether,
the Senate will consist of nineteen members, from whom they will choose a
President and a Vice-President of the Senate.
Contrary to popular belief, the Senate does have the power to initiate legis-
lation except for money bills-but it is a power which is rarely used. One can
easily understand the relationship of the Senate to the House of Representatives,
by thinking of the way that the House of Lords and the House of Commons
in the United Kingdom, have learnt to carry out their respective roles without
impinging unduly on each other's preserves. One essential feature of the House
of Lords is that admission is based chiefly on heredity as the eldest son of a
Lord automatically becomes eligible for membership on the death of his father.
The Senate of the West Indies of course, will resemble the House of Lords only
in respect of its functions. Membership will be for a period of five years, after
which a Senator must vacate his seat.
In the United Kingdom most of the laws originate in the House of Commons.
This is how the phrase "the will of the people" came into existence. It was
felt that the elected representatives should carry the burden of and responsibility
for the legislation of the country. In a similar manner, in the West Indies,
the making of the laws will mainly be the concern of the House of Representatives
and it is to choose members of this House that the elections will be held on
March 25th, 1958.
The number of candidates to be elected will vary from one island to another.
It was agreed that each Unit should be represented in relation to its size. There
could not possibly be an exact equivalence but, as it works out, Jamaica, the
largest Unit will elect seventeen members and Montserrat, the smallest, will
elect one.
The distribution of seats has been made in the following numbers:-
Jam aica ...... ...... ...... .. ...... 17
Trinidad & Tobago ...... ...... ...... ...... 10
Barbados ...... ...... ...... ..... 5
St. Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla ...... ...... ...... 2
A ntigua ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... 2
D om inica ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... 2
St. Lucia ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... 2
St. Vincent ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... 2
G renada ...... ...... ...... ...... ..... 2
M ontserrat ...... ...... ...... ...... ..... 1
The House of Repiesentatives, will, therefore, have a total membership of 45. In
order that there should be continuous representation for Montserrat, the electors
there will be asked to choose an alternate member. He will be entitled to sit
when the substantive member is absent through illness or with the leave of the
Federal Legislature.
The general qualifications for election as a member of the House of Repre-
sentatives are stated in the Constitution to be that a person "shall be qualified
to be elected as a member of the House of Representatives if, and shall not be
qualified to be so elected unless, he
(a) is a British subject of the age of twenty-one years or upwards, and
(b) has resided in the territory comprised in the Federation for a period of,
or periods amounting in the aggregate to, not less than three years
before the date of his nomination for election, and
(c) has resided in the territory comprised in the Federation for a period of
not less than six months, immediately before the date of his nomination
for election".
There is one important aspect of the elections which affects those candidates
who are members of Territorial Legislatures. This was a result of the 1956
Conference in London which decided against dual membership. The provision
finally agreed upon in the Constitution reads as follows:-
"If at the time of his election as a member of the House of Representa-
tives, a person is a member of the Legislature or the Executive Council of any
territory-
(a) he shall not take part in the proceedings of the House until he has
ceased to be a member of that Legislature or Executive Council; and















SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 27 AUGUST, 1957.-(No. 43). 31


(b) if he has not ceased to be such a member at the expiration of a
period of twenty-one days after the date of his election as a member
of the House he shall thereupon vacate his seat in the House".
So, if you elect a member of your own Territorial Legislature to the House
of Representatives, he will have three weeks in which to make up his mind
whether to carry on at home or "go Federal".
Now that we have a clear picture in our minds of the Legislature, its size
and scope, let us turn our attention to ourselves, the citizens of the West Indies,
the voters. In the final analysis, the future of the West Indies depends on the
decisions we make, on the choices that we exercise when we cast our votes. At
every election, there are always instances of citizens, who, although entitled to
vote in an election, do not avail themselves of the opportunity, through ignorance
of their rights in the matter. For the purpose of the elections next March, you
will be qualified to vote, if you are qualified to vote for members of the Legislature
in your own island under the laws in force there. For those laws are to operate
for the federal elections, so far as the qualifications of electors are concerned.
As all the islands have universal suffrage, there will be very few people
who will not be entitled to vote if they are registered as electors. You cannot
vote at an election unless you are registered as an elector. So make sure that
you are registered as an elector for elections to the Legislature of your island.
When the electoral list is being revised check with the enumerator that your
name is on the list.
You will also want to know your electoral district. This matter is likely to be
treated differently in each island. It is possible that the larger islands will
divide their territories into separate electoral districts, but the other islands may
regard the entire island as a multi-member constituency. Find out what your
island is doing. It is equally important that you should know where your nearest
polling station is for you may not be entitled to vote at any other polling station
and, in any case, this helps to get the elections carried out speedily. You will
get a considerable amount of advice in the next few months on how to
cast your vote. This is a matter for you to decide. The various parties
will suggest to you which candidate deserves your vote. That is a matter
for you to decide. But whichever candidate you vote for or whatever political
party you choose, there are certain things that the casting of your vote will
decide. It will decide the immediate future of the West Indies.
You will be voting for Federation. You will be voting for eventual self-
government. You will be voting for dominion status in the not too distant future.
To vote in the first federal elections is an honour and a privilege that you
will all wish to share. It is a duty that you will all wish to perform. You will be
helping to make West Indian history when you vote on March 25th, 1958.... For
by voting on that day, you will be accepting your status as a citizen of a new
nation-to-be in the Commonwealth, The West Indies.

of some competition, Banks are buying
the "security thread" which forms part
of British Caribbean Currency Notes and
a number of these "security threads"
