II. GENERAL REVIEW.
10. POPULATION. The population of St. Vincent at 31st December, 1956, was
estimated at 78,500. The working population was estimated at 32,700. By working
population is meant the number of persons between 15-65 years of age who work
for pay or gain or who are offering themselves for such work. It does not include
retired persons, pupils at schools, persons in institutions, persons who for various
reasons are unable to work and persons who do not undertake remunerative work
e.g. Housewives. The population is increasing at the rate of 2% per annum and
will double itself in about 35 years. There is a preponderance of females over
males in the child-bearing group i.e. from 15 to 45 years of age. The preponder-
ance of population is also in the lower age groups with the result that the
population will continue to increase very rapidly. Government is very much
concerned about this problem and is making every effort to solve it. The stress
is on "development" with the intention of providing more workfor people and
raising the standard of living.

11. EMPLOYMENT. St. Vincent is an agricultural community and employment
is seasonal. The crop period is from November to June and the slack period from
June to November. During the slack period only about 55% of the number of
persons employed during the crop period, is employed. In some areas during
the crop season there is under-employment and the workers have to be rotated.
The supply of labour during the year is always in excess of the demand.

12. WAGES. Wages are fixed by Wages Councils. There are five Wages
Councils as follows:- (1) The Agricultural Wages Council, (2) The Industrial.
Wages Council, (3) The Sugar Industry Wages Council, (4) The Shop Assistants
Wages Council and (5) The Domestic Servants Wages Council.

13. Previously there was one Wages Council for Sugar and Arrowroot and
one for other agricultural crops. Following the recommendations of the Malone
Report and the Jolly Report there is now one for the Sugar Industry only and
one for all other crops.

14. The Wages and holidays with pay for agricultural workers other than
workers employed in the Sugar Industry were revised during the year, as follows:-

1. The minimum remuneration to be paid to agricultural workers em-
ployed on time work shall be as follows: Men $1.20 and Women 96
cents per day of 8 hours.
2. Whenever a worker to whom the Order applies, employed on time-
work works with the consent of his employer, for more than 8 hours
on any ordinary day he shall be paid (except as is hereinafter pro-
vided) for every hour or part thereof time and a half and for all
work done on Sundays and Public Holidays double time. Provided
that this does not apply to watchmen, stockmen, grooms and workers
employed on the shift system but whose total earnings must not be
less than the daily minimum wages when such earnings are divided
by the number of days worked in the period whether paid on a daily,
weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
3. The minimum remuneration to be paid to workers, when employed
on piece work or task work shall be as follows:-
Digging Arrowroot-300 per basket measuring 28" in diameter
and filled to a height of 14".
Digging Peanuts-234 per kerosene tin filled to the height of
the tin.
Picking Cotton.-3 per lb. (No deduction for moisture).

















Provided that where a worker is employed on any piece work or
task work the employer shall be deemed to pay wages at less than
the minimum wage unless he shows that the rate for a period of
8 hours was not less than the minimum wage for a day.
4. Every worker shall be entitled to holidays with pay as follows:-
7 days holiday with pay for 201 days and over worked
6 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, 176-200 days worked
5 151-175 .
4 ,, ,, ,, ,, 126-150 .
3 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, 100- 125 .
15. The Wages and holidays with pay for Industrial Workers were revised
during the year as follows:-
1. The minimum remuneration to be paid to workers to whom this
Order applies, employed on time work shall be as follows: Men $1.50
and Women $1.20 per day of 8 hours.
2. Whenever a worker employed on time work works with the consent
of his employer, for more than 8 hours on any ordinary day and on
public holidays he shall be paid (except as is hereinafter provided)
for every hour or part thereof time and a half and for all work done
on Sunday, Christmas Day, Good Friday, August Monday and the
Queen's Birthday double time. Provided that this does not apply to
watchmen, and workers employed on the shift system but whose total
earnings must not be less than the daily minimum wage when such
earnings are divided by the number of days worked in the period
whether paid on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
3. The minimum remuneration paid to workers when employed on piece
work for a period of 8 hours shall not be less than the daily minimum
wage.
4. Every worker shall be entitled to holidays with pay, as follows:-
14 days holiday with pay for 201 days and over worked
12 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, 176-200 days worked
10 151-175 .
8 126-150 .
6 100-125
6 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, 100-125 ,, ,,
Provided that a worker shall, in addition, be entitled to 7 days
holiday with pay should he be ill and on production of a medical
certificate, after the completion of 200 days work in any one year.

16. COMMISSIONS OF INQUIRY. The Jolly Report and the Malone Report were
both published during the year.

17. The Jolly Report was in connection with the sugar industry. The terms
of reference of the Commission were to enquire into and report upon (1) the
general working of the Mt. Bentinck Factory with special reference to processing
efficiency; (2) the basis of an annual calculation by the Company of the price
to be paid to peasants per ton of cane; and (3) the adequacy of existing machinery
for the fixing of wages and conditions of work in the sugar industry.

18. The Malone Report was in connection with agriculture generally. The
terms of reference of the Commission were to enquire into (1) the Wages, earnings
and conditions of employment of agricultural workers including those engaged
in the processing of agricultural products, (2) the adequacy of existing machinery
for the,fixing of wages and conditions of work in the agricultural industry and
(3) such other matters as it may be considered advisable to include on the inves-
tigations and to make recommendations.

19. The Jolly Report recommended among other things (1) a number of
measures to be introduced to improve the efficiency of the factory, (2) a formula
for fixing the price to be paid for peasants canes as well as the establishment
of a Cane Farmers' Association and (3) the appointment of a Wages Council
for the Sugar Industry only.

20. The Malone Report recommended, among other things (1) that agricul-
tural workers should be given a 25% increase, (2) that one Wages Council should
be established for the sugar industry and another for all other agricultural crops.

III. INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS.
21. TRADE UNIONS. The membership of the Federated Industrial and Agri-
tural Workers' Union at 31st December, 1956:was- 1,118. The General Workers'

















Union was struck off the Register by the Registrar as it had ceased to exist.
Notice was also given that it was intended to strike the United Workers' Union
off the Register also in January, 1957, for the same reason.

22. STOPPAGE OF WORK. There were stoppages of work on Six Estates in the
North Windward area for higher wages. With the release of the Malone Report
workers were given 25% increase as recommended in the Report. Following on
this the workers returned to work although not quite satisfied. At the Mt.
Bentinck Factory however, the workers refused to return to work until the
Federated Industrial and Agricultural Workers' Union was recognized as their
Bargaining Agent. This lasted for about 10 weeks during which time efforts
were made to get both sides to settle the matter but without success. Eventually
the workers returned to work to complete the crop.

23. There was a stoppage of work on the Cane Grove Estate for better
conditions of work. This lasted 8 days and 640 mandays were lost. An agreement
was signed between representatives of the Management and Workers in the
presence of the Labour Commissioner after which the workers returned to work.

24. The workers on the Peniston Estate went on strike for one day in con-
nection with task work which was considered too high and the payment of Back
Pay as recommended in the Malone Report. The task was adjusted and the
Estate agreed to pay the Back Pay.

25. The printers-10 in number-employed by the Vincentian Publishing
Company also went on strike for higher pay. This lasted one day as the manage-
ment gave them an increase the following day and they returned to work
immediately.

26. The Teachers' Association and the Civil Service Association are regis-
tered under the Trade Unions Ordinance. At the 31st December, 1956, the
membership of the Teachers' Association was 200 and the Civil Service Association
186.

27. WATERFRONT WORKERS. Representatives of the Shipping Companies met
at the Labour Department and granted the waterfront workers a 331/3% increase
and better conditions of work. The present system of paying and recruiting
workers however, as used by the Contractors is causing a great deal of dissatis-
faction and efforts are being made to change the system.

28. HYDRO-ELECTRIC SERVICE. Arising out of a dispute between the Hydro-
Electric Service, which is scheduled as an essential service, and the workers for
increased wages, an arbitration tribunal was appointed and an award was made.

29. THE KIRKNESS REPORT. Mr. D. J. Kirkness, Economic Adviser, Windward
Islands, was appointed during the year to enquire into cost of living in the
Windward Islands and to make recommendations as regards the salaries, paid
to Government employees. As a result of his report the salaries of Government
employees including Primary School teachers were increased by 20% with retro-
spective effect as from 1st January, 1956.

30. PRIMARY SCHOOLS. The Primary Schools of the Colony were closed for
one week in October as a result of what was stated to be a sympathetic strike
supporting the Grenada School Teachers who went on strike for 2 weeks in
connection with the regrading of salaries. The Secretary of State for the Colonies
appointed the Education Adviser, C.D. & W. Organisation to enquire into the
matter and to make recommendations and the teachers resumed work.

IV. SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELFARE.
31. A Factories Ordinance, based on the model submitted by the Secretary
of State for the Colonies has been enacted and should come into operation early
in 1957.

32. During the year the number of cases reported to the Department of
Labour in connection with Workmen's Compensation was 38 as compared with 50
in 1955 and 40 in 1954.

33. First Aid Boxes and Playing fields are provided by large employers.

V. LIVING CONDITIONS.
34. Low-cost houses by means of Self-Aided schemes are provided by the
Central Housing and Planning Authority.

















35. The Labour Welfare (Sugar Industry) Committee passed on to the
Central Housing and Planning Authority $26,700 to be used in connection with
the housing of workers engaged in the sugar industry. The amount is to be
used as a revolving fund.

36. Details of the Cost-of-living Index Figures and the retail prices of some
of the more important items included in the Index are given in Table 7.

VI. HEALTH.
37. The campaign to control yaws and syphilis and to reduce the widespread
Incidence of other infectious diseases that respond to penicillin continued during
the year. The Campaign included everyone in the Colony and is undertaken by
the Government of St. Vincent with help from C.D. & W. Organisation, UNICEF
and WHO.

38. The Medical Department received another supply of dried skimmed milk
from UNICEF for free distribution, for a further period of 2 years, to needy
school children, expectant and nursing mothers, and infants throughout the
Colony. The first two-year supply was received in 1954.

VII. SOCIOLOGICAL ASPECTS.
39. Eighteen workers were recruited for farm work in U.S.A. and 22 returned
during the year. At 31st December, 1956, there were 48 recruited workers still
in the U.S.A.

40. At 31st December, 1956, there were 476 Vincentians employed by the Oil
Companies in Curacao and Aruba (237 in Curacao and 239 in Aruba). It was
estimated that some 350 women were employed in Curacao and Aruba as domestic
servants.

41. During the year 561 persons left for the United Kingdom to seek em-
ployment as compared with 186 the previous year.

SOCIAL SECURITY.
42. There are no social security schemes in St. Vincent. This is not con-
sidered practicable at the present stage of economic development of the Colony.
There is, however, a Workmen's Compensation Ordinance under which workers
are entitled to compensation for injuries arising out of and in the course of
employment. Many workers also belong to Trade Unions and Friendly Societies
which provide sick and death benefits. The sum of $20,000 was provided by
Government for public assistance during the year.

IX. WOMEN AND CHILDREN.
43. There is legislation for the protection of women and children in accord-
ance with an ILO Convention.

44. The School Age is from 5-15 years. There is no compulsory education.

SAINT VINCENT.

Administration Report of the Superintendent of Prisons
for the Year 1956.

1. GENERAL REVIEW.
The total area of the Colony including its Grenadines dependancies is
approximately 150 square miles with an estimated population of 78,000 as at
31st December, 1956.
The main Prison is situated in the town of Kingstown, and was erected in
the year 1872, to accommodate approximately 60 persons. The daily average
population for the period under review was 120.22 as against 117.02 in the previous
year. Consequently the application of certain modern prison methods are handi-
capped, as other than the Prison being out of date, lack of space prevents proper
classification which is a very necessary medium for training inmates along
modern reformative lines.
Fourteen prisoners of the total population are resident on the Ottley Hall
Prison Farm, situated about 3 miles from Kingstown Prison. These are supervised
by a 1st Class Officer and other Junior Officers. This but mitigates overcrowding
of the Kingstown Prison in a fractional way.
Work on the Fort Charlotte Buildings to which the Kingstown Prisons will
be removed when completed, was resumed late in 1956, and continued to the end of
the year. The completion of these buildings is anxiously awaited in early 1957,
as many of the unavoidable and long existing Prison Problems should be solved
when the Department is housed in these more spacious quarters.
The female prisoners are housed in a section of one of the Fort Charlotte
Buildings.
Four meetings of the Prison Visiting Committee were held during the yeai
at which discussions in the light of general welfare of the Department were held.
At the end of each meeting members made an inspectional tour of the Prison,
saw some of the prisoners at work and spoke with them.

2. STAFF.
The staff at 31st December, 1956, comprised of:-
Superintendent of Prisons ...... 1
Senior Staff Officer ...... 1
Chief Prison Officer ...... 1
Principal. Officer ...... 1
1st Class Officers ...... 3
2nd Class Officers ...... 4
3rd Class Officers ...... 14
Matron (Female Prison) ...... 1
Assistant Matron (Female Prison) ...... 1

Total ..... 27

Baker Officer Marcus Griffith was dismissed from the Prison Service on 1st
October, 1956 and consequently Officer Edson Kydd took over the duties of Baker
Officer.
On 1st November, 1956, Officer Alvin Roache was taken on, on probation,
to fill the gap created by the dismissal of Griffith.
Assistant Matron Belle James of the Female Prison, resigned her post at
the end of the year.

Discipline.
The discipline of the Staff was satisfactory. Reports against members of
the Staff were as follows:-
Alteration of Uniform ...... 1
Disrespectful Remarks ...... 1
Disobeying Orders ...... 1
Insubordination ...... 1
4

















Penalties imposed were:
Severely Reprimanded ...... 2
Extra Duty ...... 1
Dismissed ..... 1

4

No candidates attended Oversea Training Courses for Prison Officers during
the year. It is hoped that Courses for Prison Officers will continue, as thls
training helps the discipline of the Prison by improving the efficiency of the
Officers.
3. BtILDINGS.
Work on the Kingstown Prison Buildings and the Ottley Hall Prison Farm
Building was confined to minor repairs and maintenance by the Public Works
Department and the Prison's Carpenter and Mason Officers.

1955 361 43 417 12 833
1956 296 44 495 6 841
*There were 841 committals during the year as against 833, for the previous
year showing a small increase. This high percentage is as 4 result of the new
method of accounting for Remanded prisoners, as explained in the 1954 Report.
340 persons were convicted and sentenced to prison during the year, and of this
amount 157 were illiterates. At the beginning of 1956, the Prison population
comprised, 119 males, 3 females, a total of 122, and at the end of the year
it stood at 105 males and 3 females, totalling 108. The highest number of persons
in custody at any one time was on the 27th March, when the population stood
at 173 or 169 males and 4 females.

5. SENTENCES.
The length of sentence and analysis of persons committed during the year
are shown at Appendix 1.
6. RECIDIVISM.
First offenders formed the majority of the Prison population during the year.
There were 130 first offenders admitted into custody. Steps are being made to
keep this class of prisoner as far as possible segregated from the habitual criminal.

7. FEMALE PRISONERS.
There were 50' female prisoners admitted to Prison, and of this total 6 were
remands. One of these was sentenced to 4 years hard labour by the Criminal
Assizes and the others sentenced from the Magisterial Court with sentences
ranging up to 3 months. Of the total number of females admitted, 37 were
given the option of a fine. The majority of females admitted in custody were
illiterates. The occupations of female prisoners were sewing, scrubbing and
cleaning of the prison area.

8. PRISONERS ON REMAND.
All unconvicted prisoners were kept in separate association as far as was
practicable. This class of prisoner form part of our daily prison population.
Provision is made for letter writing, interviews with legal advisers and visits.
They perform no labour while in custody. The daily average of remanded
prisoners in custody in 1956, was 10.38 as against 13.03 in 1955.














9. CLASSIFICATION.
Owing to inadequate space, classification was one of the major problems
of the prison. Every effort would be made to improve classification when the
prison is removed to Fort Charlotte.

10. SPIRITUAL WELFARE AND EDUCATION.
Prisoners are encouraged to practice their religion, and ample opportunities
are given them to do so.
Regular religious services were held in the Prison Chapel by ministers of
various religious bodies.
Sacraments were administered during the year to Roman Catholic prisoners.

11. HEALTH AND DIET.
320 prisoners reported sick and were attended to by the Prison Medical
Officer, and of this total 22 were hospitalized. The general state of health was
considered good. Minor cases were treated in the Prison while surgical and
specialist treatment were attended to at the Colonial Hospital. Diet was varied,
well balanced and properly prepared. It is of interest to note that prisoners
usually gain weight on their discharge from Prison. There were no deaths during
the year.
A short Report signed by the Prison Medical Officer may be seen as Appendix
III to this Report.

12. LUNATICS.
There were no cases of lunacy during 1956.

13. LABOUR.
The daily average number of prisoners set to work each working day was 93
as against 89 in the previous year. Of this number 43.18 percent were employed
on the Ottley Hall Prison Farm. Tailoring, Shoemaking, Baking, Cooking,
Carpentry, Masonry, Stone Crushing, (by machine) Concrete Blockmaking, Wood
Cutting, Cleaning and Agriculture still form the principal occupation of prisoners.

14. EXTRA MURAL.
There were no Extra Mural cases in 1956.

15. INSPECTIONS AND VISITS.
The Visiting Justice and Members of the Prison Visiting Committee paid
their routine visits of inspection. During the visits by the Committee the
members saw prisoners at work, spoke with them and heard their complaints.
The Windward Islands Nutrition Officer Miss Manualita Zepherin paid a
visit and was pleased with the Dietary condition which she thought was varied
and balanced.

16. DISCIPLINE.
Discipline on the whole was satisfactory although there is still room for
improvement. There are some who are very hard to settle down, those of whom
have no respect for the law and order and so have to be firmly treated.

17. ESCAPES.
There was one escape for the year. This man made good his escape whilst
working on the Qttley Hall Prison Farm. He was recaptured after being at
large for 8 days.

18. EXECUTIONS.
There were two executions in 1956.

19. REMISSIONS OF SENTENCES.
All prisoners serving sentences of more than one month were granted one
third remission for good conduct and industry.

20. AFTER CARE.
The Public Assistance and Probation Officer gave some after care assistance
to prisoners on their discharge from Prison.

ADMINISTRATION REPORT ON THE PROBATION SERVICE OF THE COLONY
OF ST. VINCENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31ST DECEMBER, 1955.


GENERAL.
Probation is a system by which delinquents likely to be reclaimable are
given an opportunity to reform. It is usually applied to those in whom wrong-
doing is not habitual or whose age, record or home circumstances give reasonable
hope of reformation.
Its worth assessed in terms of character building and rehabilitation is without
limit and cannot be evaluated in terms of money.
This report shows a relatively high proportion of unsatisfactory cases. These
are, in effect, unsuccessful and doubtful cases. Those termed 'unsuccessful' were
persons who were brought before the Court for a fresh offence and the 'doubtful'
cases were those whose periods of probation were too short to note any
satisfactory response.
The majority of these cases was to be found in the Kingstown and Barrou-
allie districts and in botji areas the boys operated in 'gangs'. The operation
of these 'gangs' has been curtailed to some extent by the committal of some of
their members to the Fairhall Approved School.
The prevention of juvenile delinquency, however, depends upon basic social
factors such as good housing, sound education, full employment and above all,
the awakening- of a spiritual consciousness of the duties and responsibilities
of parenthood. The lack of proper parental training, arising in most cases
from an absence of normal family life, is a major factor in our problem of
juvenile delinquency.

STAFF.
The Probation Service is still staffed by one Probation Officer, Mr. Vivian T.
Young, who also performs the duties of Public Assistance Officer, and one Junior
Clerk.
Mr. Vivian Young went on six months vacation leave from 1st September,
1955. During Mr. Young's absence, Mr. Claude C. Samuel, Junior Clerk, acted
as Probation Officer.

DUTIES OF PROBATION OFFICER.
The duties of the Probation Officer remained the same as outlined in our
Report for 1954. The Officer continued to experience great difficulty in attending
each Sitting of the Magistrates' Court throughout the Colony.
The work done in connection with matrimonial conciliation is increasing
greatly as the public is becoming fully aware of the assistance given in these
cases. From the cases dealt with it is hopeful that this important phase of
work will develop into a very useful service.

REPORT ON THE FAIRHALL (APPROVED) SCHOOL FOR THE YEAR ENDED
31ST DECEMBER, 1955.


| ADMINISTRATION AND STAFF:
The Fairhall (Approved) School is a Government Institution which takes
care of delinquent and refractory children between the ages of 10 and 16 years.
The School was formally opened towards the end of 1953 and the progress
made by the boys is very satisfactory.
The School is managed by a Board of Managers appointed by Government.
Mr. W. N. Grannum resigned from his post as Executive Officer of the School
with effect from the 15th August, 1955. Mr. Leonard A. Providence, Headteacher
of the Spring Village Methodist School, was seconded to the post from that date.
The Executive Officer is responsible to the Managers for the general running
of the School.
The Female Assistant, Miss Millicent Keane, who is a certified teacher,
has the charge of the formal education of the boys.
Other members of the staff include three female domestic servants, one
gardener (male) and three part-time Trade instructors.

POPULATION:
There were 16 boys at the Institution at the beginning of the year. Nine
boys were admitted during the year but there were no discharges. The numerical
strength of the School on 31st December, 1955, was 25 boys.
BUILDINGS:
The buildings were in a satisfactory state of repairs throughout the year.
No major repair was done during 1955. The boys themselves did minor repair
work and white-washed the buildings during December.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING:
Formal educational instruction is given to the boys every day from 9.00 a.m.
to 12 noon by the Assistant. The Syllabus followed is in accordance with that
prepared by the Department of Education for Primary Schools, but every effort
is made to give the teaching as practical a basis as possible.
The great disparity in the scholastic abilities of the boys makes it necessary
for the Assistant to do more individual than class teaching and this presents a
problem to a single teacher instructing 25 boys.
All the boys received training in Basketry, Shoe-making and Carpantry
and the progress made in these trades is fairly satisfactory.
A great deal of mixed farming is done at the School under the guidance
of the Gardener. Livestock, (including cows, pigs, sheep) and poultry is also kept.
Sales from the garden produce and hand work during the year amounted to
$224.65.
HEALTH AND DIET:
The General health of the boys during the year might be considered satis-
factory. A few boys contracted Mumps but apart from this and occasional skin
infections, especially among the new boys, there was no serious incidence of
disease.
RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION:
Of the 25 boys at the School 9 are Catholics, 8 are Anglicans and 8 Methodists.
Seven (7) boys were confirmed as members of the Anglican Church during
December and 8 Catholics were receiving instruction for confirmation early
in 1956.
The boys attend Church every Sunday.
RECREATION:
Cricket is the chief out-door game played. Various types of indoor games,
including table tennis, are also played. There is a radio and loudspeaker and
the boys are made to listen to certain programmes of interest. The boys were
taken on sight-seeing tours during their holidays.















IS
During the latter part of the year much attention was given to the aesthetic
aide of the boys' lives and singing was added to the curriculum. The School
went carolling to a few friends and supporters during the Christmas Season.

GENERAL:
The general conduct of the boys showed marked Improvement during the
second half of the year, and, on the whole was very satisfactory.

LEONARD A. PROVIDENCE,
Executive Officer.
