Payment of Poor- Relief A 3_andal
Two whole months (July & August)
and up to the time of writing
(Sept.8) have passed without a cent
being paid to the unfortunate folks'
in receipt of poor relief from the
nation's purse. Three time have-
the poor and helpless been treated
The Hon. Minister for Home Aff-
airs vr, Isaiah Thomas puts the
blame on the Village. Council Asso-

to pay poor relief money. And they
in turn will put the blame on the .
Premier's Ministry responsible for
Village Council affairs.
Passing the buck indicates how
much red-tape is being rolled up
for two months. But it is a social-
crime to treat our poor and needy
in this heartless and beggarly fash-

Parlament Not -Consulted EC.Lob3ack
This week I would like to deal
with 'Freedon Under The Law' which
is defined.by a former British Lord
Chief Justice thus "Power m bay b
abused; if those powers are abused
.there is no tyranny like theme It'
leads to a state of affairs when
the police may arrest any man, and.
throw him into prison without cause.
It leads to the -search oT his home
and belongings; it leads to the hate
f Gastapo asid a Police State." I'm
I'm afraid this is what we ara
facing- in Dominica today, The Chief
Justice continued to say: "'The so-
cial revolution of today has put on.
the State the positive responsibility '
.of seeing that everyone is provided
with the necessities of -ife.. Act
after Act has put on the State the
responsibility of sae.iag that the
sick.and the poor are provided for.
also the fatherless and the wdow, -
Act after, Act has put upon local
authorities the .duty of providing-
for the ,welfare of their inhabitants. -
Act after Act has created public cor-
porations, put them under the con-
trol of the State and charged them
with the efficient working of essen,-
tial services..
"The principle that runs through
all. the recent legislation is that
the State is responsible for seeing
that all the supplies and. services
which are necessary for inAividyal
well-being are available to all."
This means- that when British Prw
liament passes an Act, if that Act
needs amendment the government must
go back to Parliament to have it
"amended. No official should be able
to go. on tliBBC and annamc he"That
any Act has been extended (as happen-
ed over DBS and the Dreads Amnesty),
Let us now take. a.look at the
American Bill of Rights. In Chapter
I, under the heading '" Sixty-Three
Pledges of.Freedom' it reads: "The
American people have been blessed with
a Bill of Rights since 1791, when
the ratification of the first ten
amendments to the Constitution was
*completedc There is no reason to say
'at least' since then, for when'a
great outcry went. p that the Consti-
tution formed in 1787 contained no
Bill of Rights, the. reply was made
that the entire document was a charter
of rights and liberties," ~oncl 6 Q-
