GENERAL DIRECTIONS ON PROCEDURE UNDER THE MINISTERIAL
SYSTEM.

The following General Directions on Procedure under the Ministerial System,
which were made on the direction of the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and
have been in operation since 8th March, 1956, when the Ministerial System was
instituted, are published for information of the general public:-
The directions which are issued under the authority of the Governor will
be subject to review in the light of experience.
1. MINISTERS:
(1) Functions
Each Minister will be responsible for:-
(a) the general direction of the Departments under his Ministry;
(b) the submission to the Executive Council of policy proposals or any
other important proposals affecting his Ministry;
(c) the execution of decisions reached by the Executive Council in so
far as they affect his Ministry;
(d) ensuring that no expenditure is incurred by Departments under
his Ministry which has not been sanctioned by the Legislature and,
where his prior assent is required, by the Secretary of State;
(e) dealing with matters affecting his Ministry in the Legislative Coun-
cil;
(f) dealing with individuals and public bodies on matters affecting his
Ministry.
(2) Relations between the Governor and the Ministers
(a) Ministers have the right of direct access to the Governor, and the
Governor will be glad to have discussions with them at any time
by appointment arranged through the Private Secretary.

of Ministers should be addressed to His Excellency and forwarded
to the Chief Secretary for transmission to the Governor.

(3) Relations between the Ministers and the Administrator
The Administraotr will continue to preside over the Executive Coun-
cil in the absence of the Governor; he will be responsible to the Governor,
inter alia, for internal security, labour relations, information and the
Public Service. In all these capacities the exercise of his functions will
necessitate the closest consultation and co-ordination with the Ministers.
(4) Relations between the Ministers and their Principal Assistant Secretaries.
The Principal Assistant Secretary will be responsible for seeing that
all matters requiring the attention of the Minister are submitted to him
promptly, with all relevant documentation and technical advice. He will
be responsible for conveying the Minister's decisions to the proper quar-
ters and will keep the Minister informed of the progress made in carrying
out his policy.
The Principal Assistant Secretary will be responsible for conducting
the Minister's correspondence with Government Departments and the
public, and for drafting Ministerial submissions to the Executive Council
or the Governor.
It will be the duty of the Principal Assistant Secretary to ensure
that all proposals involving establishment or financial considerations are
seen by the Administrator or the Financial Secretary before submission
to the Executive Council.
In official letters the Principal Assistant Secretary will use the
expression "I am directed by the Minister" and will sign: "Principal
Assistant Secretary to the Ministry for . ".
(The Principal Assistant Secretary and other members of the Minis-
ter's official staff will not be called upon to deal with purely political
or party matters arising from the Minister's representative capacity
in his constituency.)
(5) Relations between the Ministers and the Heads of Departments.
(a) The Head of Department will be responsible to the Minister for the
administration of his Department and will act as adviser to the
Minister on professional or technical matters falling within the
scope of his Department. It will be the duty of the Head of Depart-
ment to keep the Minister fully informed, either directly or through
the Principal Assistant Secretary, of all the important activities
of the Department, and to execute such decisions of. policy as come
within the scope of the Department.
(b) The Head of Department will not take any action involving a change
of policy or the likelihood of public controversy without reference
to the Minister.
(c) The Head of Department will have the right of access to the Minister.
(d) If a Head of Department considers that the compliance with a
direction or decision of his Minister will have a seriously adverse
effect upon the work of his Department, he may request that a
statement of his views be referred by the Minister to the Executive
Council.
(e) It is not possible to lay down precisely what departmental matters
should or should not be the concern of the Minister; but in general
the Minister's business is to formulate departmental policy with
the advice of the Head of Department and the concurrence of the
Executive Council, and to assure himself that it is being carried out;
while leaving to the Head of Department the day-to-day administra-
tive responsibility for executing the policy.
(f) The normal channel of communication between the Minister and the
Head of Department will be through the Principal Assistant Secretary
to the Ministry. In correspondence with their Ministers, Heads of
Departments will follow the same procedure as has been previously
in force in regard to correspondence with the Administrator. Cor-
respondence should ordinarily be by typed memorandum, saving
telegram or minute, of which a copy will be retained in the appro-
priate file.
(g) Departments should continue to correspond direct with each other
on routine matters.
(6) Relations between Ministers
(a) General
Meetings of the Executive Council will provide a regular opportunity
for discussions between Ministers on matters of general policy, but
frequent consultations between the Ministers, the Administrator, the
Crown Attorney and the Financial Secretary will also be necessary
on matters of mutual concern. Ministers, Principal Assistant Secre-















SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 15 OCTOBER. 1957.-(No. 53;). 393


taries and Heads of Departments will ensure that all officers for
whose supervision and direction they are responsible are mindful
of the importance of inter-Ministerial consultation and co-operation
at all levels.
(b) Financial Matters
Ministers and their Principal Assistant Secretaries will ensure that
no proposals involving expenditure from public funds for which
authority has not been given, are put to the Executive Council until
the comments of the Financial Secretary have been obtained and
recorded.

(7) Ministers and Executive Council
(a) The Executive Council is the Government's principal instrument
of policy. In addition to the large number of matters which must
be referred to it by law, the Executive Council will deal with:-
(a) all matters requiring policy decisions and all other matters of
importance;
(b) all proposals for new expenditure for which the sanction of the
Legislature has not yet been obtained;
(c) all matters involving the drafting of new legislation.
Under (a) the Ministers will submit to Executive Council all new
policy proposals. Ministers will also be expected to bring to the
Executive Council all proposals which may give rise to public oppo-
sition or controversy even though such proposals are within lines
of policy previously agreed.
(b) Responsibility of Ministers for Executive Council decisions
The Ministers will accept collective responsibility for the majority
decisions of the Executive Council and will be under an obligation
to support all Executive Council decisions both in the Legislative
Council and otherwise in public.

(8) Executive Council Business
(a) Submission of Memoranda
(i) All matters of importance submitted to the Executive Council
should normally be presented in the form of a memorandum
which should be as short and as clear as possible. The memo-
randum should conclude with a summary of the points referred
to the Council for decision. When the Minister is of the opinion
that a matter should be referred to the Executive Council, and
has satisfied himself that all the other authorities concerned
(e.g. the Financial Secretary, Crown Attorney, another Minister
or Head of Department) have been consulted, he will cause a
memorandum to be drafted by his Principal Assistant Secretary
which will include the advice of those consulted. If the Minister
is unable to accept the advice of the Head of Department con-
cerned on any matter requiring reference to the Executive
Council the views of the Head of Department should be included
in the memorandum.
(ii) When the memorandum has been approved by the Minister
it should be forwarded with the file to the Clerk to Executive
Council who, unless it is a formal or unimportant matter, will
submit it to the Governor or Administrator for approval of its
inclusion in the Agenda for the next meeting.
(iii) After approval of inclusion in the Agenda, the Clerk to Execu-
tive Council will cause sufficient copies of the memorandum to
be made to permit of circulation to all Members. Memoranda
should be circulated to Members two days before the meeting
and the files should reach the Administrator at least one day
before the meeting.
(b) Decisions
If the decision is one requiring immediate action, the Clerk to the
Executive Council will be responsible for preparing an advance record
of the Executive Council decision and will send it to the Principal
Assistant Secretary of the Ministry concerned for action.
(c) Minutes
The record will be limited to a statement of the decision of the
Executive Council with such summary of the discussion only as is
essential for the guidance of those responsible for taking action on
the decision. Copies of the unconfirmed minutes should be sent to
each Member of the Executive Council as expeditiously as possible.















394 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 15 OCTOBER, 1957.-(No. 53).


2. PERSONNEL AND ESTABLISHMENT
(a) The Ministers will not be responsible for the appointment, discipline,
transfer or promotion of members of the Public Service.
All such matters and all other matters relating to establishment
and personnel will be the responsibility of the Administrator under the
Governor.
In regard to these matters, Heads of Departments and Principal
Assistant Secretaries (in cases affecting Ministries) will communicate
direct with the Administrator and have direct access to him.
(b) Questions of establishment (which include the number and grading
of posts, salaries, allowances, and all matters of this kind affecting
the Public Service), will of course, require consultation with the Minis-
tries concerned and with the Financial Secretary. The Administrator
will be responsible for ensuring that such consultation is carried out.
(c) Sole responsibility for the Public Service, including the power to appoint,
promote, transfer, dismiss and exercise other disciplinary control over
public officers is vested in the Governor, and the Administrator who
will seek the advice and assistance of the Public Service Commission
where appropriate.
3. CEREMONIAL; DEFENCE AND INTERNAL SECURITY; POLICE; EXTER-
NAL AFFAIRS INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND AGREEMENTS,
AND IMMIGRATION; LABOUR; PUBLIC INFORMATION; AND ALL
SUBJECTS NOT SPECIFICALLY ALLOCATED TO MINISTERS.
These subjects will be the responsibility of the Administrator and communi-
cations on these subjects will be addressed to him by Principal Assistant
Secretaries and Heads of Departments concerned.
4. JUDICIARY
The Judiciary, Magistracy and Registry will be administered by the Chief
Justice.
5. LAW OFFICER
The Crown Attorney will continue to exercise his traditional and common
law functions with regard to offences, prosecutions and court matters free
of any control, and he and the Police will continue to have direct access
to one another on these matters.
6. AUDIT
The relationship of the Principal Auditor and his department to the other
departments of Government is not affected by these arrangements and their
complete independence of the Executive in the exercise of their functions
will continue.
7. OVERSEAS CORRESPONDENCE AND CORRESPONDENCE FROM THE
GOVERNOR
(a) Incoming
Communications from the Secretary of State, from the Governor of the
Windward Islands, from Governors of other territories and Her Majesty's
diplomatic representatives overseas, and from all external organizations
such as the Caribbean Commission, Development and Welfare, the Crown
Agents for Overseas Governments and Administrations etc. are addressed
to the Administrator. After perusal by the Administrator they will be
sent to the Registry for filing and circulation to the Ministry concerned
for action.
(b) Outgoing
(i) All outward correspondence to the Secretary of State or to the
Governor of the Windward Islands. Governors of other territories,
Her Majesty's diplomatic representatives overseas, and to all external
organizations such as the Caribbean Commission. Development and
Welfare, the Crown Agents for Oversea Governments and Adminis-
trations, etc. is sent by, or in the name of the Administrator. Des-
patches will be drafted by the appropriate Principal Assistant Secre-
tarv. and when the drafts have been approved by the Minister, they
will be forwarded with the files to the Administrator. After approval
they will be signed by the Administrator.
(ii) savinqrams and telegrams will, in the normal course, be drafted
by the appropriate Principal Assistant Secretary; these are sent
out in the name of the Administrator, and, therefore, if they contain
matters of importance, the drafts with the files should be submitted
to the Administrator for approval as in the case of despatches;















SAIN VIN ,;IE,'T. [UESD \. 15 OCTOBER. 1957.-(No. 53). 395


(iii) "in compliance with the principle enunciated in the first sentence
of sub-paragraph (i) above, semi-official correspondence should not
be addressed by Ministers or Principal Assistant Secretaries to
Ministers, to officials at the Colonial Office or to the Governor without
