PAPER LAID
The Minister for Trade, Production, Labour and Tourism laid the following
paper on the Table:
Council Paper No. 22 of 1966: Annual Report of the Registrar of Co-
operative Societies for the year 1965.

ORAL ANSWER TO QUESTION
The Honourable J. F. Mitchell (Grenadines) asked the Attorney General
to explain the delay in the legal department which is holding up the signing
/












of the contract between St. Vincent Electricity Services and the Government
for the electricity supply to Bequia.
The Attorney General replied: There is no delay in the Legal Department
which is holding up the signing of the contract referred to. The Legal Depart-
ment have already completed their perusal of the draft agreements relating
to the proposed service.

Supplementary Questions:
Hon. J. F. Mitchell (Grenadines) asked the Attorney General to state at
what time the delay which existed at the last sitting of the Legislative Council
was completed.
The Hon. W. F. Cenac (Attorney General) replied: I do not think it
proper for me to dwell upon the answer by another honourable member on
a previous occasion. I am merely concerned with the question as put to my
department and I have answered the question.
The Honourable Member is no doubt aware that to peruse a document
requires going through it with a fine tooth comb, and that takes time. I am
sure the member will be satisfied to learn that we have done that part of the
job and that the matter is, so to speak, proceeding through its usual course.
Hon. J. F. Mitchell asked the Attorney General to give the assurance that
the Legal Department has settled the question raised here previously.
Hon. W. F. Cenac (Attorney General) replied: I assure the Honourable
Member that as far as the Legal Department is concerned we are finished in
relation to these agreements. We have given our opinion, we have perused them,
and our part is finished.
PRIVILEGE OF A MEMBER
The Honourable J. F. Mitchell (Grenadines) asked Mr. Speaker if he would
give instructions to the Ministry concerned to arrange for the installation of
a telephone at his home. IHe pointed out that this is a privilege to which he
is entitled as a member of the House and that no action was being taken to
accord him the privilege in question.

MOTIONs-BUSINESS OF THE COUNCIL
1. The Honourable Chief Minister moved that Notice be dispensed with under
Standing Order Number 25 for the purpose of introducing and listing the
following Bills on the Order Paper as Numbers 4A, 4B, 4C, and 4D:

2. The IIonourable Chief Minister moved that the Bills listed as Orders
Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 4C and 4D be taken through their stages at this
meeting.
Question put and agreed to.

MOTION-DELETION OF NOTICES OF MOTIONS FROM ORDER PAPER:
The Honourable Chief Minister moved that orders numbers 5 and 6 be
deleted from the Order Paper. He expressed the view that the Notices in
question were calculated to make a mockery of the House and to bring it into
disrepute.
The Honourable E. F. Adams seconded the motion.
Question proposed.
The Honourables J. F. Mitchell, J. L. Eustace and R. M. Cato objected
to the procedure and expressed the view that the Speaker had no authority to
accept such a motion which was ultra vires the constitution. Whereupon Mr.
Speaker referred the Honourable Members to the following sentence at lines
20 and 21, p. 405 of May's Parliamentary Practice, and ruled that the House
was entitled to proceed:
"The House has also, by order directed that a notice of motion be taken
off the notice paper."''
The Honourables J. L. Eustace, L. C. Latham and R. M. Cato continued
to object to the procedure. The Honourables E. F. Adams and E. T. Joshua
joined the debate.
On the question being put, the Honourable R. M. Cato insisted on being
allowed to debate. Whereupon Mr. Speaker ruled that all honourable members
had an opportunity to speak on the resolution, and that the honourable
member ought to have made his contribution before he proceeded to put the
question to the House for its decision. The Honourable R. M. Cato continued
to insist on the right to debate the question. Whereupon Mr. Speaker put
the question again and it was resolved in the affirmative without division.












Notices accordingly deleted.
The Opposition members then withdrew from the meeting en bloc.
