Council Paper No. 8 of 1968: Public Library Annual Report for the
year 1966.

ORAL ANSWER TO QUESTION
Thlie Ilon. Mrs. I. I. JOSHUA (North Windward) declined to ask the Chief
Minister aid Minister of Finance the following question which stood in her
Name :
In view of the vari us remarks which are being made concerning the
Police witl, reC'-ard to thl1 killing of AiIr'iina Iloyle at her home of Owia
on the 16th September, 1967 when armed police entered her home at Owia
to arrest her son Cyril Hoyte for making use of indecent language; whether
Government would interest itself in this most serious state of affairs and
see that an iniiiediate inquiry be insliitut '(l.

The Honourable Member expressed her blunt refusal to ask the question
because it was altered by Mr. Speaker: (S.O. 19, para. 2 (b)).

PRIVILEGE-LATE CIRCULATION OF ORDER PAPERS
The IHonourable Member for Central Windward rose in his place and
claimed to protest to Mr. Speaker concerning the late circulation of papers
which lie stated were only received by him in the afternoon of the previous

Mr. Speaker drew the Honourable Member's attention to the Order of
Business and enquired whether he was proceeding as a matter of privilege
(S.O. 26), or as a matter of Urgent Public Importance (S.O. 14 (j)).
The HoIiotiirable Member elected to raise 11-i m.:i' as one of privilege by
proceeding to protest under Standing Order 26. Whereupon Mr. Speaker ruled
that it was not in fact a matter of Privilege for the House to decide upon; but
rather one of administration for the Government Departments and Ministries
concerned.
Mr. Speaker further stated that the point was well taken and that the
Standing Orders should be adhered to with regard to the circulation of papers
7 days before a meeting of the Legislative Council. (S.O. 8 para. (10)).
The Chief Minister stated that the point raised by the Honourable Member
was not relevant to the Order Paper for the silting, since (a) oral notice was
given of ord'r nmo ber 1 al the last sitting; (b) orders numbers 2 and 3 were
bills for first reading only-that order number 3 being a revenue bill, it was
neither the custom of the present nor the past government to circulate such a
bill before the date of the meeting (and in a y event such bills automatically
came into effect on first reading) (c) orders numbers 4 and 5 were bills for
second reading and were circulated long ago.







The Member for Central Windward then spoke of the Government's action
in railroading the legislation under S.O. 46 (2) (particularly in June and July)
taking bills through all their stages after late circulation of papers to deprive
the Opposition of considered debate on the measures.

Mr. Speaker pointed out that the June and July sittings were special meet-
ings' since he announced in April that the House would go into statutory recess
in May, June and July. (S.O. 10 (1)) ; and that these special meetings were
called to put through special urgent legislation.

The Hlonourable MAle.ber thin reiterated his remarks abcun l.te circulation
of papers and railroading legislation under S.O. 46 (2), and stated that as the
Opposition seemed to serve no useful purpose in the deliberations of the Council
]w would wthdraw from the meeting.
The Opposition members then withdrew from the meeting.
