In August of 1960, both Federal and
Unit West Indies governments went to
a great deal of trouble and expense to
gather Labour personnel together in Jam-
aica to attend a Manpower Se m i n a r
which was provided (at even greater ex-
pense and trouble) by the International
Labour Organisation in Geneva. Dom-
inica sent a representative.
A report was published by I. L. O.
and circulated to Governments, and Part
IV of the report contained certain valu-
able recommendations. On page 24, for
example, it was suggested that to o n e
official within the Labour Administration
(of the Unit Territory) be assigned re-
sponsibility for the Island's Manpower
Information Programme "and for liaison
with the Federal Ministry of Labour and
Social Affairs". The old Federation is
gone, but before a new one comes into
being it would be worth while to exam-
ine the recommendations again and see

w h a t has been done to implement the
w i s e counsel of the I. L. O. regarding
data on the manpower situation.
Where, for example, is the Manpower
Advisory Committee recommended, com-
p o s e d of representatives of government
employers and workers? If it exists, does
it function well: The question is parti-
cularly relevant at a time when ILO is
providing another benefit for the area in
the form of a Carribbean Co-operative
workshop. In a Territory where trade
unionism is weak and where underpopu-
lation is a problem, there is extreme need
to make the best use of available labour
and avert unnecessary unemployment. We
trust that this I.L.O. Manpower Report
and the valuable training provided by the
I.L.O. have not been put out of mind.
We may s o o n require to know on a
national scale what the true manpower
situation is.

Making A Decision

An Extract From Royal Bank Of Canada's Montliy

The manager who wishes to build up the habit of

,wAll to consid.:r these steps: (i) look at the situation general-
ly and from it extract the problem; (2) put the p r o b 1 e m
ii t o words; (,) tidy up problem; (4) do the preparatory
research thoroughly; (5) brush aside preconceived i d e a s;
(6) consider the facts; (7) think through to a solution.
The first job is to find the real problem, divesting the
situation of all irrelevant details. Masses of data may look
mri ressive, but cnly those facts which apply to the problem
in hand are wonh considering.
It is quite right to see the pattern of the total situation
and how the parts hang together, but successful managers

crnms. A problem only becomes intelligible when it is
put into words. There simply is no magic formula for
decision making, but the man who approaches the point of
t- cision by setting out his problem in an orderly way stands

Local Charities Help Portsmouth, Roseau Poor
Through circumstances beyond their control, the Committee was unable to send out their annual appeal letter during 1962. However, as the Statem:nt of Accounts
below shows, the Commiit e continued to make their usual annual donations to deserving organiziions and to carry out their customary Christmas activities.
It should be noted that substantial contributions were made to both the Portsmouth Poor Dinner and the Christmas Treat for the Portsmouth Child Welfare Clinic,
although the part played by the Committee was not mentioned in the newspaper accou t; of these events.
The Committee wishes to express thanks to those who have n ade donations without having received a direct appeal, and to ask the general public to continue to
support w.th their usual generosity their fund-raising activities during 1963.

The People write
A large part ol a Member's mail consists of letters from constituents
telling him what he should da usually, of course, contradictory. Each
letter, whether on the Common Market, old age pensions, the cruelty of hun-
ting stags or the inadvi'ability of exploding nuclear bombs must be careful-
ly studied, the arguments considered and a reply sent. Often people threaten
that they will not vote for the M.P. again if he or she does not promise to
support their campaign for whatever it is. And then he or she has to explain
the essential integrity of public lIfe which" must forswear this,sort of threat.
This contact with constituency opinion is a major part of an M.P.s
.job, p i' ' . m o' .a f. a .
He must not just answer letis, but spend time on his constituency
'xplaimnc policy, spjakmy-at tmerins,_oinlmrog ducussjons _
These may nor be on srict Party lines-for instance some Consrva
tive M.P.s campaign against the Common Market, some Labour M.P.s
support it. But in addition to public questions an M.P, has to spend a
great deal of time dealing with the personal problems of his constituents.
Somehow the M.P. has become increasingly a welfare office:. At the
weekly "open evenings" which I held in my constituency when I was a
Member of the House of Commons, I sometimes felt more like a parish
priest than a political representative.

Stresses Of Life
Constituents would ask for advice about their children's schools, their I
marriage problems, their valid grandmother who was waiting for a hospi-
tal bed, a shortage in their pension money, or how to approach the supplier
over a faulty television set they had bought, And, of course, about their
housing problems,
Many of these matters are not strictly for M.P.s- they are questions for
the local council, sometimes for a lawyer. But I never grudge this time,
because this way one learns the stresses in people's lives and gets ideas as
to where legislation is not working out in the best interests of the public,
and therefore should be changed.
The passing of legislation is still the main duty of Parliament, though
often one's constituents do nor realise the time this takes, rhe careful study
before one ties to speak in the debate, the hours in the library, t he confer-
ences with experts. And then the possibility, with a splendid speech in
one's mind, that the Speaker does not call one's name during the debate and
nobody ever hears what you had pinned to say.
Being an M.P. is more a full-time job now than ever before. The
House of Common meets at 2.30 in the afternoon from Monday to Thurs-
day and at 11 a.m. on Fridays, It is in session through the year with a
few weeks break at Easter and Christmas and about ra weeks in the sum-
But every Bill must go through a committee, clause by clause, and
these committees usually meet in the mornings. So that M. P. s who are
also lawyers or business men or have other jobs which take up their morn-
nings are never able to take their share of committee w o r k. Usually the
House sits until ten o'clock at night, so the day is long.

Amateurs And Experts
During recess one is expected to work in the constituency; perhaps to
travel, to study some project, Many M. P.s do voluntary work all through
the year in other fields on a local council, hospital board or a school com-
mittee. But the call of Parliament must come first-each Party has "Whips"
who summon M.P.s when a vote is expected. A Member may deliberately
stay away if he wishes to abstain on a vote-this can happen on matters of
conscience in any Party.

Aussies Good Start
The Australians won the toss
and elected to bat first in the Fourth
Tist Match at Adelaide which start-
ed yesterday. In gruelling heat they
receive an early shock, losing Laurie
and Simpson with only 16 runs on
the board. However, at close of
play, they had raised the score to
322 for 5, due to magnificent bat-
ting by Harvey and O'Neil who
made 153 and too respectively,
(Hirvey's 21st test century), both be-
ing caught off Dexter's bowling
within minutes of each other.
Davidson is 16 not out.
Neil Harvey Retires
Robert Neil Harvey, Australia's
prolific 34 year-old left-hand bats-
man has announced his intention to
retire at the end of the present Aus-
tralian season. Harvey has played
in 6(9 Test Matches, scoring mo.'e
toan 5,ooo runs including 20 cen
tunes, and is surpassed only by
Iradman among Australian Bats-
men. He recently scored 231 in a
Sheffield Shield match, his highest.
score ofa long career.
With Benaud, Davidson and
Mackay also retiring, the Australian
selectors will have to do a certain
amount of experimenting before suit-
able replacements for these stalwarts
can be found.
Warwicks' Record'
For the first time as far as I can
r n eml-cr? Division I match was
Licluded.in less than six hours.
-- r-i gate of arfairs was
L[.iughr about by inept bowling and
baring on the part of a team which
has (and should have) done much
better. Winning the toss, Warwicks'
skipper Benhy Pierre, sent Police
in to bat on a wicket affected by
overnight rain.
In a little over two hours Police
were all out for 179. So many full
tosses and long hops were bowled
that the police could not help par
taking in a feast of runs: at least
half the side were out through care-
less strokes. With a little more
concentration I thought Police could

have scored at least 300 runs,
Warwicks then took the crease
and a procession started. This
brought back memories ofa Dom
inican team against Antigua under
Eric Richards in 1949. The Dom-
inican team did a little worse: they

his teammates what should have bee
done in the first innings. He showed
scant respect for the bowling and in
this form is a player to be watched.
By lunch-time on the second day,
Warwicks were all out for 115.

tor carte blanche in getting rid of

with unfair bowling in the past. It
