VISIT OF GOVERNOR.

His Excellency Sir R. D. H. ARUNDELL, K.C.M.G., O.B.E., Governor and
Commander in Chief of the Windward Islands, is expected to arrive in the Col-
ony on or about 3rd December for an official visit of one week.
His Excellency will be accompanied by his A.D.C.
25th November, 1952.
(A. 2/1950).


No. 593.
VISIT OF HIS HONOUR THE ADMINISTRATOR TO BRITISH GUIANA IN
CONNECTION WITHl B.G. AIRWA-YS CHARTER SERVICE.

His Honour the Administrator visited British Guiana from the 9th to 14th
November to discuss the possibility of obtaining a four-year contract with B. G.
Airways for the charter of the Grumman Goose in order to continue the present
scheduled service.
Certain preliminary work to this end had been done in the United King-
dom, and it appeared likely that there would be no difficulty in obtaining such
a contract. At a meeting with the British Guiana Government Rates Commit-
tee it was however explained that due to an unfortunate accident to one of the
aircraft stationed in British Guiana the Committee did not feel that they were
in a position to enter into any firm commitment, at this stage. As the Grum-
man Manufacturing Corporation has now been turned over to United States
war production it is no longer possible to get spares direct from the factory,
and British Guiana Airways is dependent upon obtaining spare parts as may be
obtainable either in North or South America.
At the present moment the supply of such parts is not easy. Until such
time as this position clarifies, therefore, it was agreed that the Service should
remain on its present month-to-n:onth basis when the possibility of a contract
would be again discussed.

352 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 25 NOVEMBER, 1952.--(No. 62).


The Rates Committee informed the Administrator that costs of all materials
had increased during the last 2 years, and it would be necessary to increase the
rate per flying hour at present charged to this Government for chartering the
aircraft. This, unfortunately, will mean further increases in the passenger
fares.
25th November, 1952.

No. 594.
.BROADCASTING STATION-WINDWARD ISLANDS.

It is announced for general information that Her Majesty's Government
has approved a free Grant of One h'u'ndred and fifty-nine Thousand and Five
hundred Dollars ($159,500) from Central Colonial Development & Welfare
Funds for the establishment of a Broadcasting Station to serve the Windward
Islands. The Station will be sited in Grenada.
The B.B.C. has been asked to second an Engineer to instal and operate a
pilot short wave service using four R.C.A. two hundred and fifty watt transmit-
ters in parallel. Later he will supervise the erection of a five K.W. transmitter
which is on order. When the main transmitter is installed, it is hoped to use
the R.C.A. Transmitters in the other Windward Islands for local broadcasting.
The capital cost of the Station is estimated at One hundred and twenty
Thousand Dollars ($120,000). The remainder of the Grant is to be used to meet
part of the recurrent cost of the Station for the next three and a half years.

Mr. D. J. PARKINSON, O.B.E., assumed duty as Assistant Trade Commission-
er on 1st July, 1952, and has been engaged in organizing the office. An early
appointment to the post of Trade Commissioner is expected. The West India
Committee has generously provided temporary accommodation for the Assistant
Commissioner and his staff at the Committee's premises, 40, Norfolk Street,
Strand, London, W.C. 2., pending more permanent arrangements being
concluded for separate offices.
The office has been instituted to represent the interests of participating
Governments in trade matters in the United Kingdem.
Its functions include-
(a) Establishing and maintaining contacts with interested Departments of
H.M.G. in the United Kingdom and with organizations, firms and
individuals there and elsewhere for the purpose of promoting West
Indian trade with the United Kingdom, including the tourist indus-
try.
(b) Assembling and making available, to United Kingdom importers; pro-
cessors, manufacturers and interested trade organizations, authentic
and up to date information regarding the participating Colonies, their
commodities offering or required, business terms and control regula-
tions, shipping, tariffs, and other data relevant to the pattern and scope
of their trade.
(c) Representing participating Governments at negotiations, discussions
and international Conferences, when so required.
(d) Undertaking investigations on general or specific matters, and reporting
on them as required by the Comptroller for Development and Welfare
in the West Indies on behalf of participating Governments.
The 'executive control of the Trade Commissioner Service in the
United Kingdom and of its funds, is vested in the Comptroller for Develop-
ment and Welfare on behalf of participating Governments. Annual costs are
distributed between these Governments on a proportionate basis prescribed
in the Instrument of Establism e nt of the Regional Economic

Committee. The Governments have agreed to operate the Service for an initial
period of five years beginning 1st July, 1952, after which it will be subject to
review by them. The Trade Commissioner is required to submit to the Comp-
troller and to each Government an annual report on the activities, of the organ-
isation.
The new organisation will, it is hoped, provide important assistance to
exporters and trading interests in the British West Indies. A cordial invitation
to visit the Trade Commissioner's office has been extended through regional
Chambers of Commerce to business men when visiting the United Kingdom at
any time.
