but the way that it happened can only J. V. MULLIGAN,
leave a further legacy of bitterness and CHIEF OF POLICE
DON'T SPOIL THE PEOPLE' PARK
ST. VINCENT may boast that her
botanical gardens are the oldest in th:
SWest. Indies; we in Dominica used to
boast that ours were the most beautiful -
until a Government put bungalow-offices
upon the grounds. Nonetheless we still
consider them to be exceedingly lovely,
and so do the tourists who enjoy our de,
lightful shady trees and shrubs.
It is a mark of civilization for the peo,
ple to cherish their green spaces. Ad,
vanced countries are very jealous over
their national parks, and do not regard
them as just a strip of spare land for
building purposes, more particularly when
they have descended from generation to
generation for the leisure enjoyment of the
populace. A beautiful park is in fact
an oasis. Cities spawn around it and
try to eat it up, but it should remain un,
touched as a symbol of nan's need for
solitude and relaxation and the poetry of
life. In most countries there are stern
laws against building on national parks.
We now hear talk that Government
may consider erecting the proposed
U.W.I. Extra Mural centre in the botaai,
cal gardens. We think that this would
be wrong, and that there are several alter,
native sites. It would even be preferable
to transfer the children's playground
opposite the northern gate into the botani,
cal gardens proper, and let the new
U.W.I. building rise up on the vacated
spot. If it is to be used for adult education,
a grown-up's playground is unnecessary,
and the park is close at hand. Or, Gov,
ernment could acquire one of the burned-
out shell-sites in the town; or better still,
some public-minded person with a love
for the University could give a piece of
land in or near the town for the purpose.
Our gardens are our Kew. They are
not just a plot of ground for utility, to be
chopped-up and uglifiedd" by the erection
of concrete and glass boxes. They are
for inspiration, rest, and -- coming to the
cricket pitch sport; for children's play;
and most of all, a green cool refuge for
poor people who have no grounds of their
So we say, leave the people's park
alone. No matter how worthy the put,
pose, we would not support the further
mutilation of the botanical gardens.
There is more to education than just sit,
ting in a room at a desk. Respect for the
beauties of nature is part of man's higher
education. We hardly think that the
present rulers of this island would be such
Goths and Philistines as to ruin something
fine that belongs to us all.

TRADE UNIONISTS AS M.P.s
By. BERNARD DIX
(Conclnded from !ast issue)
The emphasis on economic affairs will also give a
prominent role to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. In
the new Government this poqt is occupied by Mr. James
Callaghan, onZtime assistant secretary of the Inland
Revenue Staff Federation the union which organizes the
men iad women employed in the income tax offices.
One of the surprise Cabinet appointments was that of
Mr. Frank Cousins as Minister of Technology, another
new ministry which is expected to play an important part in
accelerating the pace of industrial development. Mr.
Cousins was general secretary of Britain's largest trade
union the Transport and General Workers' Union -
and a member of the T. U. C. General Council. At the
time of his appointment to the Cabinet Mr. Cousins was
not a Member of Parliament, but he will be seeking elec,
ion to the House of Commons at an early by-election
when a seat falls vacant.
This is the second time that a general secretary of the
Transport and General Workers' Union has entered the
Cabinet before being elected an M. P., The first was Er,
nest Bevin. Mr. Cousins will not play any direct part in
union affairs while he is a Minister.
Closely linked with the economic and technological
problems occupying the time of Mr. Brown, Mr. Cousins
and Mr. Callaghan, will be labour affairs. These are the
responsibility of the Minister of Labour, and in the present
Government this post, too, has been giv-n to a trade
unionist. He is Mr. Ray Gunter, son of a mrner and pre,
sident of the Transport Sala:ied Staffs' Associa:ion, whose
85,ooo members are mainly the "white collar" workers on
mte railwa;y's;-"- ''~'---~ ~~ ~ --- ''
The other prominent trade unionists with Cabinet
posts are Mr. Arthur Bottomley, one rime official of the
National Union of Public Employees who is now Secretary
of State fob Commonwealth Relations; Mr. Thomas Fraser,
a member of the National Union of Minework-rs wh3
worked in the pits before entering Parijament in 1943 and
who is now Minister of Transport; another examiner who
is sponsored by the miners' Union is Mr. Jmes Grifiths,
Minister for Wales. Mr. Fred Lee, a very active member
of the Amalgamated Engineering Union, is Minister of
Power, and Mr. Douglas Houghton, a former member of
the T. U. C. General Council, is Chancellor of the
Duchy of Lancaster a nondepirtmental Cabinet post
which allows the holder to cover a range of affairs dictate ]
by the circumstances of the time and in the light ef the
Prime Minister's requirements. In addition to these nine
trade unionists in the Cabinet, many others have been ap-
pointed as Ministers or to junior posts.
One ofthe youngest is 36,yearsold Mr. Richard
Marsh, who was previously a fulltime official of the Na-
tional union of Public Employees. As Parliamentary
Secretary to the Minister of Labour, Mr. Marsh has special
responsibilities for industrial training and apprenticeships
and works in close collaboration with the Ministry of
Education. Another young member of the Government is
39,yearsold Mr. Roy Mason, an ex-miner who won a
T. U. C. Scholarship to study at the London School of
Economics and who is now a Minister of State at the Board
of Trade. -
The strength of union membership in the House of
Commons and the wide rage of Gqvernment posts held by
trade unionists is a sign of the active interest which British
trade unionists display in political affair.s But the unions
distinguish clearly between these political activities from the
unio,,'s primary function of industrial relations, and to this
end the trade unionists no.v occupying posts in the Govern/
