SPOILING the fiiiale
of the Health Minis-
ters' conference this
week a disagreeable
incident occurred at
new Layou River Hotel
ol ,iedieesday night.
The Premier,his Deputy and another
local Minister stopped in there for
late-hour drinks after the usual open-
ing and blessing of a new Police Sta-
tion (this time at La Plaine). After
final orders were taken by the Barman
and Hobn. Thos.Etienne paid the bill
for the Ministers, the till was closed,
Then Mr. Leblanc called for
Another driXk. The Barman told him he
was seoxry but the bar was shut, but
,w; tw 'Ie tch-the .Assistant, Manager
Mr. Clancy Charles (Manager Mr. Peter
barodny, having a night off, was in
Roseau). The Ansst.Manager told the
Premier he was sorry the bar was clo-
sed but offered to reopen it for the
Premier personally. However the Prem-
ier left in a huff, saying that he
,would have the Hotel closed down in
six months. Subsequently the Premier
.(who was too busy to attend the Con-
fereice opening) came before the del-
egates and made a statement which was
broadcast twice. Meanwhile the Hotel
Manager had both written and spoken
to the Premier expressing apologies.
A Policeman arrived at dawn on Thursday
to notify him that the dinner for 360
delegates and guests ordered for that
night had been cancelled.
Unhappily the Dominican Chef had
prepared a magnlficenv banquet over
the past few days: this most of the
visitors did not enjoy; they had free
drinks at the Siseerou instead., But
maay Dominicans enjoyed a good fete.

I (Page Seven)

The Budget Speech started off with a sweeping world-review intended
to blame others for any and every economic shortcoming in Dominica, but
when I heard "our democratic elections are :unquestioned" I thought "Why,
he cannot have read the newspapers or listened.-to talk in the streets!l
The last election could perhaps be 'unquestioned' legally, yes, but
ethically it was very questionable.,- Pundit, back pay and all.
As Mr.. Aimour ploughed through some more.philosophical musings I
:'as struck by his strangdy. out-of-character Biblical references and I
was reminded of. Antonio-'s remark to Bassanio: "The 'devil' can cite scriptuse
for his purpose ... A goodly apple, rotten at the heart'" However many of
the statements made in the speech quite pleased me since they showed:
that Opposition criticism has.been effective and Opposition. advice, (though
unacknowledged)sometimes acted .upon,
?For instance the East Caribbean Common Market 'which' I so heartily
supported as a bargaining tool for the LDCs was allowed to wither for
two years: now it. is suddenly being resuscitated., Ohf but why- do the
heads of governments of the Associate. States..refer to-themselves as *WISA
(pronounced wiser)? --the already used initials-of -the West Indian Sugar
Association: Childish. Armour's comment that..: study. -is--being made of
the position of the Assoc.States with the E.E.C,, (in regard.to citrus) is,
I trust, not a mere pious hope; the proof of the .pudding will be in 'who
is'eating our citrus .' .
Despite Shankland Cox's recommendations the t'Armour International
-Airport' idea at'Braitridge is stiLl pursued. If it' ever comes off it .
will by noise alonec'over a 4-mile; wide belt, 12 miles long;' ruin the
:ecology-of the .island and frighten off the better" type of visitor seeking
-tranquility and wildlife conservation. It doesn't tally with the Minis-
ter's assurances to the Health Conference delegateIs, I "
...As ,I. -have- said, -the principle behind 'the, Banking .&. Insurance .Act is
1'sound .but it,should not apply to Savings Banks and Credit. Unions and, the
privacy of accounts must be'.safeguarded and-.ensured. A pityithat a Biil
.cann.ot be enacted -to-ban the sendigg-of money out of the country to .um-
bered.Bank -Accounts in Switzerland.ior the Bahamas '
On land, Government has turned a somersault.over (a) the wickedness
of CDC.and..(b). the Castle Bruce farming .idea,. which will incidentally need
,a great ,deal more. education than has been provided hitherto: perhaps Mr.
Atherton Martin might be given a n'w postt bf Co-operative-'Collective-
-Farming Educator.!.. (I learn since the*budget speech that he and his com-
mittee would prefer.to-.buy- the land on the hire-purchase system than have
.Government buy -it), .
. like- the phrase (after Govt's 12 years in the saddle, and. despite
the so-called .Agricultural Marketing Board): "Goveinment will have to
.act to organize marketing to ensure that"the grower is supported,...I"
,AbOut time and don't forget bananas.
The Work Permit business, like land deals, is still (I feel) open to
abuse.,or favouritism. I can 'see a :time coming when hotel supervisory staff
may move around.the island from hotel to ,hotel taking each other's places
at ever-increasing wages: -Surely Vork Permits should-.be graded: I,Assoc-
iated States nationals, II, Other Westindian nationals, III, English citi-
zens, IV The Rest,
For a Finance Minister, the arithmetic is a bit shaky in parts; for
instance, if from 1975-1975 "2,000 young people leave school to join the
labour market "(?force). of 30,000, how come 6,000 additional jobs will be
needed?' Will nobody die, retire or emigrate? Or is 2,000 young people a
year intended?
An attack on the President of the Chamber of Commerce and a state-
ment that Government "will continue to bend backward to encourage the
local investor" is no encouragement to those outside investors in the
past and present who have been bewildered and baffled by forms, red-tape
and.continually amended laws for months and years until they give .up in
It-is curious'that a Labour Finance Minister of the Upper Income
Group has failed to observet-the convention used in other lands (see >.10'

The Dominica Banana Growers Association in the interest of
improved quality wishes to appeal to all growers to pay particular
attention to the times stated in the cutting notice and follow strictly
the instructions in respect of time of cutting. Premature cutting re-
sults in stale fruit, ship ripe bananas and spoilt quality and must be
avoided at all costs.
Growers who fail to follow the instructions in the cutting notice
in respect of time of cutting run the risk of being disqualified for
quality bonus payment or having their fruits marked and rejected.
The field staff of the Association have been instructed to look
out for premature cutting and report all discovered cases.

The British Government has
announced improvements in its
immigration rules. The main
improvement relates to Common-
wealth citizens, one of whose
grandparents was born in the '.K,
These will now have the right to
go to Britain to work, and to
settle, for as long as they like,
needing no work permit but only
an entry clearance in proof of
this. Already, under the terms
of the Immigration Act, which be-
came operative at the start of the
New Year, Commonwealth citizens
whose father or mother was born in
Britain have complete freedom to
enter Britain as they please.
These patrialss" are totally free
from control. Those now granted
the right of entry to work and
settle in Britain upon the
relationship of a British born
grandparent, will be free of any
kind of supervision in employment.
They will also be admitted *for
settlement at outset.
The changes in Britain's
immigration rules were published
.by the Home Secretary, Mr. Robeart
Ca, They provide. also that meln
with\ grandparents born.rin Britain,
-who' marry women resident there or
exempt from control, will also, be
admitted for settlement. The--
