PAPERS LAID
The following members laid on the Table o" the Council the papers indicated
hereunder:
Chief Minister and Minister of Finance:
C Council Paper No. 17 of 1966: Report of the Senior Auditor on the
Audit of the Accounts of the C )lony for the year 1964.
SS.^^year
























Minister for Trade, Production, Labour and Tourism:
Council Paper No. 18 of 1966: Annual Report of the Windward
Islands Banana Growers' Association for the financial year July,
1964 to June, 1965.
Minister for Communications and Works:
Council Paper No. 19 of 19'66: Lands & Surveys Department An-
nual Report for the year 1963.
Council Paper No. 20 of 1966: Report on the working of the Port
and Marine Department for the year 1965.
The Iloriourable R. M. Cato asked the Chief Minister if he would make
a statement as to whether the undue delay in laying administration reports
was due to departmental or printing hardships. The Chief Minister stated
that the delay is mainly due to the inheritance of a system whereby the
administration was run by one man, and that the habit grew up of presenting
a backlog of these various administration reports at any time.

ORAL ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS
1. HON. L. C. LATHAM: (South Windward) asked the Minister for Communi-
cations and Works whether Government intends to carry out repairs on the
road leading from Evesham crossing to the Evesham School and to the
Village of Collins; and if the answer is in the affirmative will the Minister
please state when it is intended to commence this work.
The Minister replied:
Repairs have been effected from time to time on the Evesham Road, as
indeed on all roads in the South Windward District.
Further repairs will be carried out subject to the availability of funds
under the appropriate Maintenance Vote.
2. HON. R. M. CATO: (East St. George) asked the Minister for Communica-
tions and Works when Government intends to commence work on repairing
the roads of Fairhall, Brighton and Glamorgan.
The Minister replied:
The Ministry for Communications and Works has been carrying out
repair work on the Fairhall, Glen, Brighton and Glamorgan Roads, and
will, subject to the availability of funds, continue to do so.
Supplementary Question:
Hon. R. M. Cato (East St. George) asked: Will the Minister please
state whether he has in fact visited these roads and whether he is aware
that they are in a totally impassable condition-particularly the road to the
village of Brighton; and will he further state when these funds will become
available to make these roads usable by pedestrians and vehicles.























The Minister replied: As far as I know, the relevant maintenance
works have always been carried out on these roads. The development is
another matter, and the ministry is considering ways and means to see how
these funds can be obtained to develop these roads.
3. HoN. L. C. LATHAM : (South Windward) asked the Chief Minister to
explain the reason for payment of one set of Civil Servants by cheques
from Barclays Bank and another by cheques from the Royal Bank of
Canada for the month of August, 1966.
The Minister replied:
All cheques for the month of August were drawn on Barclays Bank,
D.C.O. From 1st September Government's Current Account was trans-
ferred to the Royal Bank of Canada where it will remain until 30th April,
1967. This is in accordance with the policy of allowing both of the major
banks operating in the Territory to participate in Government's Account.
From 1st September, 1966, therefore, all Government cheques have been
drawn on the Royal Bank of Canada, so that any persons who, for instance,
did not call for their salaries before the end of August would have received
cheques on the Royal Bank of Canada.
4. HoN. L. C. LATHAM: (South Windward) asked the Chief Minister what
is the total amount paid to the retrenched dock workers, and the details
of the respective sum paid to each worker.

The Chief Minister replied:
Three hundred and forty-two (342) claims totalling $65,961.00 were
submitted to the Treasury as at 30th September, 1966. Three hundred and
twenty-three persons have been paid a total of $64,482.00. Nineteen claims
totalling $1,479.00 are still unpaid. Sums paid to individual workers ranged
from $25.00 to $1,827.00.
The following method of calculation was used: 11 times average
weekly earnings for the two year period immediately preceding the
opening of the Deep Water Pier, multiplied by the total number of years
of service as established from the records of various Firms e.g. Hazell's,
Corea's, W. J. Abbott-with a minimum of $25.00.

Supplementary Question:
Hon R. M. Cato (East St. George) asked: Will the Chief Minister
please state whether the sums stated represent the total of Government's
commitment in the matter, or if there are likely to be further claims and
further payment.
The Chief Minister replied: It does not represent the full commitment.
Investigations are still being made by the department because of the far-
























fetched way the department t had to extract the information as to workers'
records from various shipping agents. So that the department is still at
work investigating some hard eases and some claims of which account
should be taken.

Hon. R. M. Cato (Ea.t St% George) asked: So that Government will
be likely to be faced with fr rather demands?

The Chief Minister replied: Wall I doubt not because there is a
balance. The original sum was $86,000.00.

5. HoN. R. M. CATO: lastt St. George) asked the Chief Minister what is the
amount of overdraft now (wing to Barclays Bank and/or any other Banks
operating in St. Vincent.
The Chief Minister replied:
The amount of Government's Bank Overdraft at 3rd October, 1966,
was $734,115.00. Governm nt keeps only one account, and this is operated
at present by the Royal Bai k of Canada.

6. HON. R. M. CATO: (East St. George) asked the Chief Minister whether
the Adviser to Govern meit has made recommendations relating to the
operations of the Deep W:ter Wharf? Is it the intention of Government
to table his report and to ; range for a review of the conditions and rates
as provided for in the press ,ni agreement and to pursue issues -to the point
of arbitration as may ble f )und necessary in accordance with the terms of
the existing agreement.
The Chief Minister re-lied:
According to the press, ut agreement in one aspect of the Deep Water
Wharf-the running of th Transit Shed by contract-it is Government's

Hon. R. M. Cato (East St. George) asked: In view of the fact that
Government is committed _o review the accounts after one year, will the
Chief Minister now state when he intends to cause that review to be
undertaken.

and certain exercises as designated in the question of the Honourable
member has to be gone tiLrough. It is dependent on an Audit Report,
and I believe it is now s- bmitted, and nothing prevents the proceedings
from taking place to have n enquiry into the whole proceedings according
to the agreement.

please tell us when he intends to lay the Broadhurst Report on the Table of
