Mr. Shillingford asked what the position was with regard to
the Castle Bruce Estate.
His Honour informed members that the Colonial Development
Corporation were not going ahead with Citrus as originally in-
tended.
He had spoken to the local Manager of the Corporation and it
had been suggested that one of the two buildings put up on the
Estate by the Corporation for an office, was sufficiently large to
house the Government Dispensary and Police Station. The other
building was suitable as quarters for a Medical Officer. The Cor-
poration had quoted $11,000 for each building.
The possibility of Government purchasing the estate was dis-
cussed.
Mr. Shillingford and Mr. Aird suggested that the Livestock
Officer should examine the estate and report on its suitability as
a Stock Farm.
The Crown Attorney mentioned the possibility of Government
obtaining a lease on the estate with option to purchase.
Mr. Dupigny supported this suggestion.






Telephone Service.
Mr. Aird complained of the Telephone Service. He was of
the confirmed opinion that the Operators were indifferent and not
applying themselves.
Mr. Shillingford also complained of the telephone service and
spoke of the condition of the line at Grand Savanah and Salisbury.
His Honour promised to have the line attended to and the
operators cautioned.
Revenue from Telephones.
Mr. Aird asked what was the revenue derived from non-sub-
scribers making telephone calls.
His Honour promised to find out the amount.

Mr. Dupigny stated that the compassionate allowance which
was paid to Mrs. Virginia Giraud to assist her with the mainten-
ance of the children of the late L. J. S. Giraud, had been stopped
on her death, and he asked that payments be made to the guardian
of the children of the late Mrs. Giraud.
Caribbean Festival.
The Committee agreed to the expenditure of $48.00 to meet
the cost of sending samples of the Colony's straw work for display
in the Arts and Crafts section of the Caribbean Festival to be held
at Puerto Rico.
Revision of subsistence Allowance Rates.
His Honour asked to defer consideration of the revised sub-
sistence allowance rates until he could obtain further particulars.

Mr. Shillingford stated that he would not be prepared to con-
sider any increased rates of subsistence until the pauper rates
were increased.
He reiterated the need for an Insurance Scheme for the poor.
Compensation to Mr. J. Riley.
The Committee approved of the issue of a supplementary vote
of $180 under Head 16 Miscellaneous to meet this Colony's share
of expenditure for compensation to Mr. Riley to offset incon-
venience and loss sustained as a result of the cancellation of the
offer of the appointment to the Colonial Service as Headmaster of
the Central Reformatory School, Windward Islands.
Road Development Programme.
His Honour gave a resume of the progress made with the
Road Development Programme.
He said that it was anticipated that both the Laudat road and
the Trafalgar road would be completed within the estimates.
He m ntioned, however, that it would be impossible for the
other roads to be completed within the estimates, and it was
necessary to reconsider the programme.






His Honour said that it was proposed to start on the Corona-
Layou Valley Road, and to go ahead on the Transinsular road with
the exception of the last 2j miles of the road.
The Director of Works and Mr. Jepson, who were called to the
meeting, showed members the Aerial photographs of that area
through the stereoscope.
His Honour told members that because of the lack of funds,
he feared it would be necessary to cut out the Castle Bruce road
for the time being, and gave reasons.
Mr. C.A.H. Dupigny felt that it would not be fair on the peo-
ple of the Windward coast to cut out this road.
Mr. Shillingford was of the opinion that something would
have to be done to develop that side of the island.
After considerable discussion, members reluctantly agreed
that it would be necessary to postpone a Windward Coast road for
the time being
Petition for Road to Crapaud Valley.
Mr. C. A. H. Dup'gny presented His Honour with a petition
from the people of the Crapaud Valley area asking for a road to
that area.
