GEORGETOWN, Jan 24, CP:
Premier Cheddi Jagan’s government
approved the 1963 recurrent budget
calling for an expenditure of
$67,500,000. The approval came
after the Opposition had launched a
strong attack on the proposal to set
up a $400,000 fund to establish a
National Army. Peter D’ Aguiar
U.P. leader said “We have heard
continual claims that there is no
money for milk for hungry children;
let them starve. No money for poor
people to have beds in hospital; let
them lie on the floor. No money
for airport facilities for people; let
there be a stable for cattle instead.



Now we are asked to vote $400,000
for an army.”

OBITUARY
THE RT. HON. HUGH GAITSKELL. ¢. B. E. M. P.

In December 1955, the Rt. Hon. Hugh Gaitskell was
clected by the Parliamentary Labour Party to succeed Lord
Attlee as its Chairman. He thus became Leader of the
Opposition in the House of Commons. Mr. Gaitskell had
been a leading personality in the Labour Party and in Par-
liament for some years. When, in October, 1950, he suc-
ceeded the late Sir Stafford Cripps as Chancellor of the
Exchequer, he was the youngest man for nearly half a cen-
tury to hold this post, being only forty-four at the time of

DOMINICA

"general electio. he was put into the newly created post of

Minister of State for Economic Affairs in the Treasury for
the purpose of assisting Sir Stafford Cripps, the Chancellor
of ihe Exchequer. His responsibilities im this office were
concerned primarily with problems of external finance, and
he played a large part in the establishment of the European
Payments Union. When ill-health obliged Sir Stafford
Cripps to go on leave in August, 1950, Gaitskell was act-
ing Head of the Treasury in his place, and on Sir Stafford’s
resignation in October, 1950, he was appointed Chancellor
of the Exchequer.

(Cont. on page 3)



his appointment.

Hugh Todd Naylor Gaitskell was born on 9th Apmil,
1906, the son of Arthur Gaitskell of the British Civil Ser-
vice in India. He was educated at Winchester School and
New College, Oxford, where he took First Class Honours
ir. the school of Philosophy, Politics and Economics |
in 1927.

During the following year he was appointed to the
Department of Adult Education at University College, Not-
tinyham, (row Nottingham University) where he lectured
to miiats and others in the East Mialands coalfields. In
1928 he moved to London University as Assistant Lectur-
et in Economics at University College; he remained there
for £1 years, with a shore break in 1933 34 when he was
awatded a Rockefeller Fellowship and studied in Vienna.
In 1938 he became Head of the Department of Economics
at University College, London, and Reader in Political
Economy at the University of London,



His interest in politics had begun some years before.
During the General Strike of 1926, when he was sti lla
student at Oxford and not yet very active politically, he
drove a carfor the Strike Committee. His conversion to
mote active political work for the Labour Movement dated
irom his job in the East Midlands coalfields, where he was
able to see industrial conditions in the coal industry at first
nand for himself just after the great lock«out_of 1926-27.

“He did a good deal of speaking both in the 1929 and 1931
weneral elections, but it was not until 1932 that he decided
to stand for Parliament. In that year he was adopted as
Labour candidate for Chatham, a naval dockyard t o wn.
He contested this constituency in 1935, and though secur-
ing the highest Labour vote reached upto that time, was
defeated by his Conservative opponent. In 1937 he was
adopted as prospective candidate tor his late constituency,
South Leeds.

Throughout the ‘thirties Mr. Gaitskell had also been
active in the Fabian Society. He was the original Assist-
ant Secretary of che New Fabian Research Bureau, an
later became a member of the executive of the Fabian
Society. He also advised the Labour Party on a number of
financial and economic committees.

At the outbreak of the Second World War he was

invited to join the newly formed Ministry of Economic



\

Warfare, where for a time he was in charge of the German |

Intelligence Section. When the Churchill Government was
formed in May, 1940, he became Principal Private Secretacy
to Mr. Hugh Dalton, the new Minister of Economic War-
fare. In 1942, Mr. Dalton became President of the Board
of Trade, and Mr. Gaitskell for atime acted as personal
assistant to him there, with special responsibilities in con-
nection with coalmining. Later, however, Mr. Gaitskell
was appointed as head of one of the major departments in
the Board of Trade, covering price control, retail trade and
films where he remained until the end of the war. In 1945
he was awarded the C. B. E. for his services.

In the general election of that year, Mr. Gaitskell was
clected Member of Parliament for South Leeds, which he
has represented ever since.

After nine months in the House of Commons as a
back bencher, he became in 1946 Parliamentary Secretary to
the Ministry of Fuel and Power. Eighteen months later
when the Minister, Mr. Shinwell, became Secretary of State
for War, Mr. Gaitskell was promoted to be Minister of Fuel
and Power himself. In the spring of 1950 following the|

(Cent. from page 2)

His budget the following April was praised on all
sides as an honest and able measure framed to meet a diffi-
cult economic situation, and the speech in which he intro=
duced it in the House of Commons earned him a tribute
from the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Winston Churchill
(as he then was), who described it as a remarkable Parlia-
mentary performance. During his time as Chancellor of
the Exchequer Mr. Gaitskell carried on his labours in the
field of international finance, visited the United States and
Canada for high level discussions on various occasions and
attended meetings of the Organisation for European Econo-
mic Co-operation in Paris. In the summer of 1951, he
addressed the Consultative Assembly of the Council of
Europe at Strasbourg; this was an innovation, for the only
ministers to address the Assembly hitherto had been minis-
tets for foreign affairs. A month later he attended, in
Ottawa, the first N. A. T. O. meeting at which ministers
of finance were present, Mr. Gaitskell had gone to Oitawa)
from Washington, where he had attended meetings of the
International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and
the International Monetary Fund.



After going out of office Mr, Gaitskell remained his party’s chief
speaker in financial and economic debstes, opening for them on’ major
occasions such as discussions of the budget proposals. He continued to
study international finance; and attended a number of economic conferences
in the United States; in May, 1952, he attended the economic conference
at the University of Minnesota and addressed the Executives Club in Chi-
cago; the following year he visited Harvard, New York and Montreal, and
in New York gave an address to the Foreign Policy Association.

‘His interests covered many fields and he made other journeys overseas
on a number of different occasions, In the spring of 1954 he visited Ceylon
as the. guest of the Ceylon Government, and afterwards travelled north © to
visit Rawalpindi and the:Khyber Pass in Pakis‘an. Shortly after his return
to Europe he took thé chair at the European Parliamentary’ Conference,

overseas. In May, 1956, he visited Washington, where he had talks with
President E1rsenhower and Mr. Dulles, addressed che annual convention of
the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union at Atlant’c City, and
met vanous Labour and official personalitie. Ac the end of the month he
attended the sth general assembly of the Internat.onal Press Institute at
Zunch.

Later in the year he visited Paris, where he attended the conference of
Parliamentarians from N. A. T. O, countries. Early in 1957 he returned
to the United States and carried out a lecture tour toa number of Univer-
sity towns. Other overseas journeys included a visit to the Netherlands to
attend the Dutch Labour Party Congress; to Berlin to deliver lectures at the
invitation of the Ernst Reuter Memorial Society and the Anglo-German
Society; a stay in Rome where he had talks with Socialist leaders on Italian
Socialist re-umification, and was ieceived in audience by H. H. the Pope;
attendance in July at the Socialist international conference in Vienna, where
he was elected one of the two vice-chairman for the comsng two years; and
an informal visit to Yugoslavia where he met Marshal Tito. He made an
extended tour on the occasion of his visit to India to attend the Common
wealth Parliamentary Assoic’ation’s meeting in Delhi, following which he
visited Burma, Malaya, Ceylon and Pakistan.

He revisited several European countries in 1958 and 1959, and in
August and September of the latter year, accompanied by Mr. Aneuran
Bevan, paid his first visit to the Sovict Union, when he met Mr. Khrush
chev for discussions.

In December, 1959, Mr. Gaitskell visited the United States and gave
several lectures; in January, 1962, he paid a visit to Berlin to study the
problems there and in February, 1962, he was a member of the British
delegation to the Anglo American Parliamentary conference in Bermuda.

Both in 1956 and 1957 Mr Gaitskell was a U. K. representative to
the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe, and the Assembly of
the Western European Union.

He was a member of the Shadow Cabinet, or Parliamentary Com-
mittee, of the Parliamentary Labour Party from the time when it went into
Opposition in the autumn of 1951; he was elected each year until he
became the Parliamentary Party’s Chairman, since when he had een a

of the new Geest ripening centres 1s
that the fruit which arrives from the

Whilst innovations such as these
have been introduced to ensure

A COMMONWEALTH MAN

oS the strange and untimely

death of Hugh Gaitskell the English
people have lost a great Labour Leader
and Britian has lost a strong potential
Prime Minister; but more than that, the
whole Commonwealth has lost a trusted
fiend. “The real dangers that confront
us,” said Gaitskcll last year, ‘are not the
old rivalries of France, Germany, and
other West European Powers butt hose
that arise from the continuing hostilities
of the Communist and non-Communist
world and from the terrible inequalities
that separate the developed and the un-
derdeveloped nations, the white and the
coloured races.”

The Editor of this newspaper first met
Gaitskell at a Varsity boat-race party
carly in 1938. The circumstances were
lighthearted but memorable: at that
gathering Nehru of India, Attlee, Cripps
and many young socialists were present to
cheer the Light Blues even when (like
Gaitskell) they sported the dark blue
ribbon .of Oxford. It was noteworthy
long afterwards that half the guests on
that unique. occasion — including the
host — became/Labour M. P.s. What
was then immediately noteworthy was the
disarming modesty and confidence of
Clement Attlee and of his younger friend
Hugh Gaitskell, then untried in national
politics.

Gaitskell had lost nothing of that
modest confidence when encountered in
Trinidad under a changing sky in 1961,
although he was then deeply disturbed
by the impending death of Aneurin
Bevan. It is no secret to a few people in
Dominica that he had personally encour-
aged the founder of the Dominica Labour



Party to go ahead boldly with her plans
in 1955. “If there is danger of victim:
isation,” wrote Gaitskell, ‘come out and
declare what you really stand for. We
are with you.” Thus the Dominica
Labour Party, as did Cipriani’s Trint-.
dad Labour Party in 1925, started off
with a British socialist blessing. In those
early days, many Members of the House
of Commons were honorary members of
Dominica’s new and hopeful organisa-
tion.

In alast conversation with Hugh
Gaitskell, the writer of this editorial (thea
a Federal Minister) made the suggestion
to him at Governor-General’s House that
the British Labour Party, which has al-
ways been the defender of good Com-
monwealth relations and the rights of
coloured peoples, should alter its scope
and title to the Commenwealth Labour
Party. Gaitiskell reflected for a few
seconds then replied with his air of open
bonhomie, “It would not work yet. In-
sularity is not peculiar to the West In-
dian islands; and you know as well as I
c some Commonwealth political
patties calling themselves ‘Labour’ are
not Labour Parties at all in my sense of
the term.”



Lid!

A wise man whose words and deeds
will endure to be his epitaph; a devoted
husband, father, friend and statesman; an
unpurchaseable man, devoid of preju-
dice, beloved by Queen and labourer; a
socialist by dedication — no more words
can add to Gaitskell’s illustrious reputa-
tion, and nothing can mitigate the tra-
gedy of our loss, Britain’s loss. . . the
passing of a true Commonwealth Man.

MANPOWER

In August of 1960, both Federal and
Unit West Indies governments went to
a gteat deal of trouble and expense to
gather Labour personnel together in Jam-
aica to attend a Manpower Seminar
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 recomendations. On page 24, for
cxample, it was suggested that to one
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 1s
gone, but before a new one comes into
being it would be worth while to exam-
ine the recommendations again and see

what has been done to implement the
wise counsel of the I. L. O. regarding
data on the manpower situation.

Where, for example, is the Manpowet
Advisory Committee recommended, com-
posed 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 undetpopu-
lation is a problem, there is extreme need
to make the best use of available labour
and avert umnecessary unemployment. We
wust that this L.L.O. Manpower Report
and the valuable training provided by the
LL.O. have not been put out of mind.
We may soon require to know ona
national scale what the true manpower
situation is.

Making A Decision

An Extract From Royal Bank Of Canada’s Monthy
Newsletter

The manager who wishes to build up the habit of
wiaking decisions with wisdom and effectiveness might do
well to consider these steps: (1) look at the situation gene ral-
iy and from it extract the problem; (2) put the problem
i110 words; (3) tidy up problem; (4) do the preparatory
research thoroughly; (5) brush aside preconceived 1d cas;
(6) consider the facts; (7) think through to a solution.
“The first job is to find the real problem, divesting the
situation of all irelevant details. Masses of data may look
impressive, but cnly those facts which apply to the problem
in hand are worth considering.

It is quite sight co see the pattern of the total situation
and how the parts hang together, but successful managers
have the capacity to reduce the whole picture to simple
wrms. A problem only becomes intelligible when It 1s
put into words. There simply is no magic formula for
decision making, but the man who approaches the point of
lecision by setting out his problem in an orderly way stands






ster chance
iclies on snap judgments.

in laying out an approach to decision making we need
to differentiate between tasks which demand only the ap-
plication of known techniques and those whica have unus-
ual conditions that require clarification and directed action.
For example, the mail despatching staff faced with an un-
usual spate of envelopes knows that extra effort and perhaps |
time wil! see them through; but if there 1s an unusual num-

: ; ; |
ber of complaints about wrong addresses, accompanied by

a mounting pile of, uncompleted orders, then there is a real

problem. ; :

' Tecan be solved if the person xesponsible ‘grasps 10s
nature, gguges its true dimension, decides what to do about
it, and takes immediae steps to cope with it, He breaks a
big problém down into small, ' easily tackled units, changin
a vague difficulty into a specific concrete form. H2 may go
so far as to answer one ‘ yes ot no” question and then ask
others until the major problem is solved. en

“One method advocated by some teachers is “take it
apart.” You write down the. problem about which you
must make'a decision. In two columns underneath write
down the points “for” and “against.” When this is done
seriously and honestly you have a good accounting, and
your decision will be based upon the balance.

Afterwards Mr. T,H.

Henderson addressed members on ‘the two basic pre

mises of thought as regards the place of the Estate and peasantry in our

agricultural policy.

He pointed out thit to some Agriculturists, the estates were the one to

concentrate on, whilst others thought that the peasantry would be the life
iblood of agricultural development in these parts.

| In his discussion along these lines of the two schools of thought, he

| showed the weaknesses of both system of agricuiture.

(1) That the major limiting factor of estate agriculture which is most
common inthe temperate regions is Organisation and Management— the
combination of the best use of human resources, land and capital.

(2) That the major limiting factor of peasanc agriculture in the tropics
was the lack of know how and the lack of research on biological problems,

New Year Message From Auntie Fran |
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!

Dear Gils and Boys,—Eveiyone is now back at school. Those who |
worked hard last year ate quite happy, for they have been promoted to a|
higher class; those who were not promoted must have been quite unhappy.
Well, there is one lesson you can learn from this—that you reap what
you sow. Those who did not put in their best in the past year, cannot reap
what they did not sow, They must put more effort into their work this
new year.

Avis a great pity that many children do not put in their best at school.
Little do they realise what sacrifices are sometimes made by their parents to
give them an education, There are inany child ea who would Ike to get a
secondary school education but their parents are too poor to afford it-~yet
many who attend those schools just waste ther ttme and the time of their
teachers. ,

It is a good habit to make resolutions at the start of a new year.



ens, may draw some distinguished «
visitors who appreciate — nature’s |
marvels,

Finally, I wish the brave creators
of this imaginative venture success |
and prosperity,

!

Notorists And Pedestrians

Sir, —In a school exetcise book, I find that the Coca-
Cola Co. have illustrated Road Safety Rules and I suggest
that these might well be taken up by the Jaycees in ¢ heir
campaign: the rules are as_ follows:

Obey your Safety Patrol

I,

2. Keep from between parked cars.
3. Look both ways before crossing.
4. Be extra alert on rainy days.

5. Play away from traffic.

6. Cross only at corners.

7 Watch -for- turning —eats—

8.. Wear white after dark.
9. Cyclists — ONE rider for safety.
to. Walk on left facing traffic. -

To all pedestrians, I would add; de mot stand in the
middle of a busy road talking to the driver or occupants of
a vehicle or you may be side-swiped by another vehicle, as
happened toa lad some little while ago.

To all motorists, I say: check your speed at corners, do

not rely on your horn alone. |

Finally let everyone try their hand at an essay ona
debate set in a text book — “Write two or three pages on
a speech for or against the motion ‘that motorists are mainly

responsible for road accidents”.
S. J. Lewis, Roseau

Those who worked hard last year can resolve to work even better this
year. Those who wasted their time last year can resolve to work hard
this year. Parents must see to it that you ge time to do
your — homework. They must also give help where necessary.
T don’t mean chat they must ‘‘do’’ the work for you, bue they can explain |
and supervise what you are doing. Also, in order that you can study
your lessons, thete must be as little noise and tilk as pavsibie. The radio
must be turned down as low as possible ifit is absolutely necessary to put
fit on. Neighbours must not be encouraged to come in and gossip in the
same room where you study.

Also, inthe classroom you must pay attention to your teachers when
they are teaching a new lesson o: explaining a_ difficulty.

Lastiy remember that in order to learn you must be in good health.
Many children ‘pick and choose” at the table. Som-times they refuse to
eat or drink what is good for them. Mention ‘“‘yeast” or ‘‘cod-liver oil’
and faces screw up in disgust. I agree tnat not all these good things are
pleasant to taste but if you remember that they help you to keep in good
health and thus io learn better, you would love to take them.

So you see the business of learning depends much on your own efforts
,-—with the help of your parents and teachers.

[ hope every little girl and boy will make 1963 a happy 2nd _ success
ful year in the classroom, If you study hard, you will be happy, your

teachers will be happy and of course your parents tov.

Cherie till -next week, :

DOMINICA



Member Of Parliament
BY
Mrs. Lena Jeger

Member of Britain’s Parliament for St.
Pancras South (London) 1959

“Your representative owes you, not his industry, but his judgment;
Oo

and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion”.

So said Edmund Burke, M.P., to the electors of Bristol, his English
parliamentary constituency, on November 3, 1774. Through all the chang-
ing stresses of public life and the vicissitudes of political histroy, this, in
Many ways. remains the most succinct attempt to define the status and the
duties of Britain’s Members of Parliament. They are representatives uot
mandated delegates,

Since Buike, there has been a much greater Party stratification in Par
liament, more formalised programmes and policies drawn up by each Party,

and it 1s within the pany counsels, rather than in Parliament, that modern ,

M.P.s must often seek to use their influence on Party policy,

Another change since Burke is the prevalence of assessing public
opinion, through polls and ether methods. The results are often showered
on M,P.s together with petitions and organised correspondence campaigns,
It is thought by some chat if an M,P. gets more postcards defending capital
punishment than opposing it, for example that he should reflect the ma-
jetty view .In tact he should not necessarily do anything of the so~,
What Burke meant — and it is still true—is that an M,P. should lead rath-
er than foliow public opinion,

The People write

A. large part ofa Member's mail consists of letters from constituents
telling him what he should do — usually, of course, contradictory. Each
letter, whether on the Common Market, old age pensions, the cruelty of hun-
ting stags or the inadvisability 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 at is. And: then he or she has to explain
the essential integrity of public |.fe which’ must forsweat this,sort of threat.
se This contact with constituency opinion is a major part of un M.?,s

Jo . ‘ ; f ‘ ! tens i
He must not just.answer letters, but spend time on his constituency

explaining ‘policy, speaking at meetings, joining discussions.

___ These may not be on strict Party lines—for | instance some Conserva-

_ tive M.P.s campaign against the Common’ Market, some Labour M.P.s

support it. But in aduition 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:s 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
“Marriage problems, their invalid grandmother who was waiting for a hospi-
"tal bed, a shertage in their pension money, or how to approach the supplier
over a faulty television set they had bought, And, of course, about their
housing probiems,

Many of these matters are not strictly for M.P.s- they are questions for
the local council, sometimes for a lawyer. Bue I never grudge this time,
because this way one learns che stcesses 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 tiies to speak in the debate, the hours in the library, the confer-
ences with experts, And then the possibilicy, 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 planned 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
ae weeks break at Easter and Christmas and about 12 weeks in the sum-

erg

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 ate
also lawyers or business men or have other jobs which take up theit morn-
nings are never able to take their share of committee work, Usually the
-Aouse sits until ten o’clock at night, so the day is long.

Amateurs And Experts

Doning 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 schoo! com-
mittee. But the call of Parliament must come first—each Party has “Whips”
who summon MeP.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.

teurs,

gard as amateurs. The pay is now £1,750 a yeat—less than many Civil Ser-
schools. Out of this a Member must buy his stamps pay his secretary,
board himself in London if his famiuy home is in the country and entertain
‘his constituents when they visit Wester insier.

But for all the complaints, nobody ever leaves Westminster gladly.
The first thought in electoral defeat is usually of how soon one can pet
back. Back to the job once explained in classic terms by Edmund Burke
in a speech to the electors of Bristol:

“Parliament is not a congress of ambassadors from different and hos-
ule interests. , . but Parliament is a deliberative assembly of one nation, with
one interest, that of the who'e; where not local purposes, not local prejudices
ought to guide, but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the
whole. You choose a member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he
is not member of Bristol, but he 1s a member of Parliament.”’ (BIS)

Warwicks’ Record |

For the first time ‘as far as I can}
' remember‘a®: Division I match was

concluded 1h less than six hours.

-Phis—dismt state of —affaies Was
brought about by inept bowling and
batting on the part of a ‘team which
has (and should have), done much,
better. Winning the toss, Warwicks’ |
skipper Benny Pierre, sent Police
in to bat on a_ wicket affected by
overnight rain.

Ina 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 of a Dom
inican team against Antigua under:
Eric Richards in 1949. The Dom-
inican team did a little worse; chey
were all out for 12. Warwicks on
this occasion were all out for 18,
thanks to a well-timed drive for six
by B. Pierre when the score was 12

The vexed question for Domin-

secondly as an independent Federa-
tion within the Commonwealth 2”

Dr. Eric Williams, for example,

GEORGETOWN, Jan 24, CP:
Premier Cheddi Jagan’s government
approved the 1963 recurrent budget
calling for an expenditure of
$67,500,000. The approval came
after the Opposition had launched a
strong attack on the proposal to set
up a $400,000 fund to establish a
National Army. Peter D’ Aguiar
U.P. leader said “We have heard
continual claims that there is no
money for milk for hungry children;
let them starve. No money for poor
people to have beds in hospital; let
them lie on the floor. No money
for airport facilities for people; let
there be a stable for cattle instead.



Now we are asked to vote $400,000
for an army.”

OBITUARY
THE RT. HON. HUGH GAITSKELL. ¢. B. E. M. P.

In December 1955, the Rt. Hon. Hugh Gaitskell was
clected by the Parliamentary Labour Party to succeed Lord
Attlee as its Chairman. He thus became Leader of the
Opposition in the House of Commons. Mr. Gaitskell had
been a leading personality in the Labour Party and in Par-
liament for some years. When, in October, 1950, he suc-
ceeded the late Sir Stafford Cripps as Chancellor of the
Exchequer, he was the youngest man for nearly half a cen-
tury to hold this post, being only forty-four at the time of



HLRALD

DOMINICA

"general electio. he was put into the newly created post of

Minister of State for Economic Affairs in the Treasury for
the purpose of assisting Sir Stafford Cripps, the Chancellor
of ihe Exchequer. His responsibilities im this office were
concerned primarily with problems of external finance, and
he played a large part in the establishment of the European
Payments Union. When ill-health obliged Sir Stafford
Cripps to go on leave in August, 1950, Gaitskell was act-
ing Head of the Treasury in his place, and on Sir Stafford’s
resignation in October, 1950, he was appointed Chancellor
of the Exchequer.

(Cont. on page 3)



his appointment.

Hugh Todd Naylor Gaitskell was born on 9th Apmil,
1906, the son of Arthur Gaitskell of the British Civil Ser-
vice in India. He was educated at Winchester School and
New College, Oxford, where he took First Class Honours
ir. the school of Philosophy, Politics and Economics |
in 1927.

During the following year he was appointed to the
Department of Adult Education at University College, Not-
tinyham, (row Nottingham University) where he lectured
to miiats and others in the East Mialands coalfields. In
1928 he moved to London University as Assistant Lectur-
et in Economics at University College; he remained there
for £1 years, with a shore break in 1933 34 when he was
awatded a Rockefeller Fellowship and studied in Vienna.
In 1938 he became Head of the Department of Economics
at University College, London, and Reader in Political
Economy at the University of London,



His interest in politics had begun some years before.
During the General Strike of 1926, when he was sti lla
student at Oxford and not yet very active politically, he
drove a carfor the Strike Committee. His conversion to
mote active political work for the Labour Movement dated
irom his job in the East Midlands coalfields, where he was
able to see industrial conditions in the coal industry at first
nand for himself just after the great lock«out_of 1926-27.

“He did a good deal of speaking both in the 1929 and 1931
weneral elections, but it was not until 1932 that he decided
to stand for Parliament. In that year he was adopted as
Labour candidate for Chatham, a naval dockyard t o wn.
He contested this constituency in 1935, and though secur-
ing the highest Labour vote reached upto that time, was
defeated by his Conservative opponent. In 1937 he was
adopted as prospective candidate tor his late constituency,
South Leeds.

Throughout the ‘thirties Mr. Gaitskell had also been
active in the Fabian Society. He was the original Assist-
ant Secretary of che New Fabian Research Bureau, an
later became a member of the executive of the Fabian
Society. He also advised the Labour Party on a number of
financial and economic committees.

At the outbreak of the Second World War he was

invited to join the newly formed Ministry of Economic



\

Warfare, where for a time he was in charge of the German |

Intelligence Section. When the Churchill Government was
formed in May, 1940, he became Principal Private Secretacy
to Mr. Hugh Dalton, the new Minister of Economic War-
fare. In 1942, Mr. Dalton became President of the Board
of Trade, and Mr. Gaitskell for atime acted as personal
assistant to him there, with special responsibilities in con-
nection with coalmining. Later, however, Mr. Gaitskell
was appointed as head of one of the major departments in
the Board of Trade, covering price control, retail trade and
films where he remained until the end of the war. In 1945
he was awarded the C. B. E. for his services.

In the general election of that year, Mr. Gaitskell was
clected Member of Parliament for South Leeds, which he
has represented ever since.

After nine months in the House of Commons as a
back bencher, he became in 1946 Parliamentary Secretary to
the Ministry of Fuel and Power. Eighteen months later
when the Minister, Mr. Shinwell, became Secretary of State
for War, Mr. Gaitskell was promoted to be Minister of Fuel
and Power himself. In the spring of 1950 following the|

OBITUARY
THE RT. HON. HUGH GAITSKELL. €. 8. E. M. P.
(Cent. from page 2)

His budget the following April was praised on all
sides as an honest and able measure framed to meet a diffi-
cult economic situation, and the speech in which he intro=
duced it in the House of Commons earned him a tribute
from the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Winston Churchill
(as he then was), who described it as a remarkable Parlia-
mentary performance. During his time as Chancellor of
the Exchequer Mr. Gaitskell carried on his labours in the
field of international finance, visited the United States and
Canada for high level discussions on various occasions and
attended meetings of the Organisation for European Econo-
mic Co-operation in Paris. In the summer of 1951, he
addressed the Consultative Assembly of the Council of
Europe at Strasbourg; this was an innovation, for the only
ministers to address the Assembly hitherto had been minis-
tets for foreign affairs. A month later he attended, in
Ottawa, the first N. A. T. O. meeting at which ministers
of finance were present, Mr. Gaitskell had gone to Oitawa)
from Washington, where he had attended meetings of the
International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and
the International Monetary Fund.



After going out of office Mr, Gaitskell remained his party’s chief
speaker in financial and economic debstes, opening for them on’ major
occasions such as discussions of the budget proposals. He continued to
study international finance; and attended a number of economic conferences
in the United States; in May, 1952, he attended the economic conference
at the University of Minnesota and addressed the Executives Club in Chi-
cago; the following year he visited Harvard, New York and Montreal, and
in New York gave an address to the Foreign Policy Association.

‘His interests covered many fields and he made other journeys overseas
on a number of different occasions, In the spring of 1954 he visited Ceylon
as the. guest of the Ceylon Government, and afterwards travelled north © to
visit Rawalpindi and the:Khyber Pass in Pakis‘an. Shortly after his return
to Europe he took thé chair at the European Parliamentary’ Conference,

As Leader of the Opposition Mr. Gaitskell made further journeys | were also added to Lingfield in Sur- |

President E1rsenhower and Mr. Dulles, addressed che annual convention of
the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union at Atlant’c City, and
met vanous Labour and official personalitie. Ac the end of the month he
attended the sth general assembly of the Internat.onal Press Institute at
Zunch.

Later in the year he visited Paris, where he attended the conference of
Parliamentarians from N. A. T. O, countries. Early in 1957 he returned
to the United States and carried out a lecture tour toa number of Univer-
sity towns. Other overseas journeys included a visit to the Netherlands to
attend the Dutch Labour Party Congress; to Berlin to deliver lectures at the
invitation of the Ernst Reuter Memorial Society and the Anglo-German
Society; a stay in Rome where he had talks with Socialist leaders on Italian
Socialist re-umification, and was ieceived in audience by H. H. the Pope;
attendance in July at the Socialist international conference in Vienna, where
he was elected one of the two vice-chairman for the comsng two years; and
an informal visit to Yugoslavia where he met Marshal Tito. He made an
extended tour on the occasion of his visit to India to attend the Common
wealth Parliamentary Assoic’ation’s meeting in Delhi, following which he
visited Burma, Malaya, Ceylon and Pakistan.

He revisited several European countries in 1958 and 1959, and in
August and September of the latter year, accompanied by Mr. Aneuran
Bevan, paid his first visit to the Sovict Union, when he met Mr. Khrush
chev for discussions.

In December, 1959, Mr. Gaitskell visited the United States and gave
several lectures; in January, 1962, he paid a visit to Berlin to study the
problems there and in February, 1962, he was a member of the British
delegation to the Anglo American Parliamentary conference in Bermuda.

Both in 1956 and 1957 Mr Gaitskell was a U. K. representative to
the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe, and the Assembly of
the Western European Union.

He was a member of the Shadow Cabinet, or Parliamentary Com-
mittee, of the Parliamentary Labour Party from the time when it went into
Opposition in the autumn of 1951; he was elected each year until he
became the Parliamentary Party’s Chairman, since when he had een a

of the new Geest ripening centres 1s
that the fruit which arrives from the

A COMMONWEALTH MAN

oS the strange and untimely

death of Hugh Gaitskell the English
people have lost a great Labour Leader
and Britian has lost a strong potential
Prime Minister; but more than that, the
whole Commonwealth has lost a trusted
fiend. “The real dangers that confront
us,” said Gaitskcll last year, ‘are not the
old rivalries of France, Germany, and
other West European Powers butt hose
that arise from the continuing hostilities
of the Communist and non-Communist
world and from the terrible inequalities
that separate the developed and the un-
derdeveloped nations, the white and the
coloured races.”

The Editor of this newspaper first met
Gaitskell at a Varsity boat-race party
carly in 1938. The circumstances were
lighthearted but memorable: at that
gathering Nehru of India, Attlee, Cripps
and many young socialists were present to
cheer the Light Blues even when (like
Gaitskell) they sported the dark blue
ribbon .of Oxford. It was noteworthy
long afterwards that half the guests on
that unique. occasion — including the
host — became/Labour M. P.s. What
was then immediately noteworthy was the
disarming modesty and confidence of
Clement Attlee and of his younger friend
Hugh Gaitskell, then untried in national
politics.

Gaitskell had lost nothing of that
modest confidence when encountered in
Trinidad under a changing sky in 1961,
although he was then deeply disturbed
by the impending death of Aneurin
Bevan. It is no secret to a few people in
Dominica that he had personally encour-
aged the founder of the Dominica Labour



Party to go ahead boldly with her plans
in 1955. “If there is danger of victim:
isation,” wrote Gaitskell, ‘come out and
declare what you really stand for. We
are with you.” Thus the Dominica
Labour Party, as did Cipriani’s Trint-.
dad Labour Party in 1925, started off
with a British socialist blessing. In those
early days, many Members of the House
of Commons were honorary members of
Dominica’s new and hopeful organisa-
tion.

In alast conversation with Hugh
Gaitskell, the writer of this editorial (thea
a Federal Minister) made the suggestion
to him at Governor-General’s House that
the British Labour Party, which has al-
ways been the defender of good Com-
monwealth relations and the rights of
coloured peoples, should alter its scope
and title to the Commenwealth Labour
Party. Gaitiskell reflected for a few
seconds then replied with his air of open
bonhomie, “It would not work yet. In-
sularity is not peculiar to the West In-
dian islands; and you know as well as I
c some Commonwealth political
patties calling themselves ‘Labour’ are
not Labour Parties at all in my sense of
the term.”



Lid!

A wise man whose words and deeds
will endure to be his epitaph; a devoted
husband, father, friend and statesman; an
unpurchaseable man, devoid of preju-
dice, beloved by Queen and labourer; a
socialist by dedication — no more words
can add to Gaitskell’s illustrious reputa-
tion, and nothing can mitigate the tra-
gedy of our loss, Britain’s loss. . . the
passing of a true Commonwealth Man.

MANPOWER

In August of 1960, both Federal and
Unit West Indies governments went to
a gteat deal of trouble and expense to
gather Labour personnel together in Jam-
aica to attend a Manpower Seminar
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 recomendations. On page 24, for
cxample, it was suggested that to one
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 1s
gone, but before a new one comes into
being it would be worth while to exam-
ine the recommendations again and see

what has been done to implement the
wise counsel of the I. L. O. regarding
data on the manpower situation.

Where, for example, is the Manpowet
Advisory Committee recommended, com-
posed 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 undetpopu-
lation is a problem, there is extreme need
to make the best use of available labour
and avert umnecessary unemployment. We
wust that this L.L.O. Manpower Report
and the valuable training provided by the
LL.O. have not been put out of mind.
We may soon require to know ona
national scale what the true manpower
situation is.

Dear Mrs. Editor,-Now that
Christmas has come and gone and
left behind thoughts, still vivid, of
all the kind wishes exchanged
between friends, let us hope realiza-
tion of the goodwill expressed in so
many different ways will follow.

Human nature is weak causing so
many of us to fail in trying to live

Some would think that honesty
and fairplay are things to be reserved |

Making A Decision

An Extract From Royal Bank Of Canada’s Monthy
Newsletter

The manager who wishes to build up the habit of
wiaking decisions with wisdom and effectiveness might do
well to consider these steps: (1) look at the situation gene ral-
iy and from it extract the problem; (2) put the problem
i110 words; (3) tidy up problem; (4) do the preparatory
research thoroughly; (5) brush aside preconceived 1d cas;
(6) consider the facts; (7) think through to a solution.
“The first job is to find the real problem, divesting the
situation of all irelevant details. Masses of data may look
impressive, but cnly those facts which apply to the problem
in hand are worth considering.

It is quite sight co see the pattern of the total situation
and how the parts hang together, but successful managers
have the capacity to reduce the whole picture to simple
wrms. A problem only becomes intelligible when It 1s
put into words. There simply is no magic formula for
decision making, but the man who approaches the point of
lecision by setting out his problem in an orderly way stands






ster chance
iclies on snap judgments.

in laying out an approach to decision making we need
to differentiate between tasks which demand only the ap-
plication of known techniques and those whica have unus-
ual conditions that require clarification and directed action.
For example, the mail despatching staff faced with an un-
usual spate of envelopes knows that extra effort and perhaps |
time wil! see them through; but if there 1s an unusual num-

: ; ; |
ber of complaints about wrong addresses, accompanied by

a mounting pile of, uncompleted orders, then there is a real

problem. ; :

' Tecan be solved if the person xesponsible ‘grasps 10s
nature, gguges its true dimension, decides what to do about
it, and takes immediae steps to cope with it, He breaks a
big problém down into small, ' easily tackled units, changin
a vague difficulty into a specific concrete form. H2 may go
so far as to answer one ‘ yes ot no” question and then ask
others until the major problem is solved. en

“One method advocated by some teachers is “take it
apart.” You write down the. problem about which you
must make'a decision. In two columns underneath write
down the points “for” and “against.” When this is done
seriously and honestly you have a good accounting, and
your decision will be based upon the balance.

Afterwards Mr. T,H.

Henderson addressed members on ‘the two basic pre

mises of thought as regards the place of the Estate and peasantry in our

agricultural policy.

He pointed out thit to some Agriculturists, the estates were the one to

concentrate on, whilst others thought that the peasantry would be the life
iblood of agricultural development in these parts.

| In his discussion along these lines of the two schools of thought, he

| showed the weaknesses of both system of agricuiture.

(1) That the major limiting factor of estate agriculture which is most
common inthe temperate regions is Organisation and Management— the
combination of the best use of human resources, land and capital.

(2) That the major limiting factor of peasanc agriculture in the tropics
was the lack of know how and the lack of research on biological problems,
As know-hew increased through education, Agricultural Societies and ade-
quate extention, organization and management become importint, and as a
-result the inefficient farmer will get our of ousiness leaving larger and larger
estates in agricultural business.

The meeting then continued with discussions and_ refreshment.

New Year Message From Auntie Fran |
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!

Dear Gils and Boys,—Eveiyone is now back at school. Those who |
worked hard last year ate quite happy, for they have been promoted to a|
higher class; those who were not promoted must have been quite unhappy.
Well, there is one lesson you can learn from this—that you reap what
you sow. Those who did not put in their best in the past year, cannot reap
what they did not sow, They must put more effort into their work this
new year.

Avis a great pity that many children do not put in their best at school.
Little do they realise what sacrifices are sometimes made by their parents to
give them an education, There are inany child ea who would Ike to get a
secondary school education but their parents are too poor to afford it-~yet
many who attend those schools just waste ther ttme and the time of their
teachers. ,

It is a good habit to make resolutions at the start of a new year.



ens, may draw some distinguished «
visitors who appreciate — nature’s |
marvels,

Finally, I wish the brave creators
of this imaginative venture success |
and prosperity,

Notorists And Pedestrians

Sir, —In a school exetcise book, I find that the Coca-
Cola Co. have illustrated Road Safety Rules and I suggest
that these might well be taken up by the Jaycees in ¢ heir
campaign: the rules are as_ follows:

Obey your Safety Patrol

I,

2. Keep from between parked cars.
3. Look both ways before crossing.
4. Be extra alert on rainy days.

5. Play away from traffic.

6. Cross only at corners.

7 Watch -for- turning —eats—

8.. Wear white after dark.
9. Cyclists — ONE rider for safety.
to. Walk on left facing traffic. -

To all pedestrians, I would add; de mot stand in the
middle of a busy road talking to the driver or occupants of
a vehicle or you may be side-swiped by another vehicle, as
happened toa lad some little while ago.

To all motorists, I say: check your speed at corners, do

not rely on your horn alone. |

Finally let everyone try their hand at an essay ona
debate set in a text book — “Write two or three pages on
a speech for or against the motion ‘that motorists are mainly

responsible for road accidents”.

Those who worked hard last year can resolve to work even better this
year. Those who wasted their time last year can resolve to work hard
this year. Parents must see to it that you ge time to do
your — homework. They must also give help where necessary.
T don’t mean chat they must ‘‘do’’ the work for you, bue they can explain |
and supervise what you are doing. Also, in order that you can study
your lessons, thete must be as little noise and tilk as pavsibie. The radio
must be turned down as low as possible ifit is absolutely necessary to put
fit on. Neighbours must not be encouraged to come in and gossip in the
same room where you study.

Also, inthe classroom you must pay attention to your teachers when
they are teaching a new lesson o: explaining a_ difficulty.

Lastiy remember that in order to learn you must be in good health.
Many children ‘pick and choose” at the table. Som-times they refuse to
eat or drink what is good for them. Mention ‘“‘yeast” or ‘‘cod-liver oil’
and faces screw up in disgust. I agree tnat not all these good things are
pleasant to taste but if you remember that they help you to keep in good
health and thus io learn better, you would love to take them.

So you see the business of learning depends much on your own efforts
,-—with the help of your parents and teachers.

[ hope every little girl and boy will make 1963 a happy 2nd _ success
ful year in the classroom, If you study hard, you will be happy, your

teachers will be happy and of course your parents tov.

DOMINICA



Member Of Parliament
BY
Mrs. Lena Jeger

Member of Britain’s Parliament for St.
Pancras South (London) 1959

“Your representative owes you, not his industry, but his judgment;
Oo

and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion”.

So said Edmund Burke, M.P., to the electors of Bristol, his English
parliamentary constituency, on November 3, 1774. Through all the chang-
ing stresses of public life and the vicissitudes of political histroy, this, in
Many ways. remains the most succinct attempt to define the status and the
duties of Britain’s Members of Parliament. They are representatives uot
mandated delegates,

Since Buike, there has been a much greater Party stratification in Par
liament, more formalised programmes and policies drawn up by each Party,

and it 1s within the pany counsels, rather than in Parliament, that modern ,

M.P.s must often seek to use their influence on Party policy,

Another change since Burke is the prevalence of assessing public
opinion, through polls and ether methods. The results are often showered
on M,P.s together with petitions and organised correspondence campaigns,
It is thought by some chat if an M,P. gets more postcards defending capital
punishment than opposing it, for example that he should reflect the ma-
jetty view .In tact he should not necessarily do anything of the so~,
What Burke meant — and it is still true—is that an M,P. should lead rath-
er than foliow public opinion,

The People write

A. large part ofa Member's mail consists of letters from constituents
telling him what he should do — usually, of course, contradictory. Each
letter, whether on the Common Market, old age pensions, the cruelty of hun-
ting stags or the inadvisability 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 at is. And: then he or she has to explain
the essential integrity of public |.fe which’ must forsweat this,sort of threat.
se This contact with constituency opinion is a major part of un M.?,s

Jo . ‘ ; f ‘ ! tens i
He must not just.answer letters, but spend time on his constituency

explaining ‘policy, speaking at meetings, joining discussions.

___ These may not be on strict Party lines—for | instance some Conserva-

_ tive M.P.s campaign against the Common’ Market, some Labour M.P.s

support it. But in aduition 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:s 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
“Marriage problems, their invalid grandmother who was waiting for a hospi-
"tal bed, a shertage in their pension money, or how to approach the supplier
over a faulty television set they had bought, And, of course, about their
housing probiems,

Many of these matters are not strictly for M.P.s- they are questions for
the local council, sometimes for a lawyer. Bue I never grudge this time,
because this way one learns che stcesses 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 tiies to speak in the debate, the hours in the library, the confer-
ences with experts, And then the possibilicy, 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 planned 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
ae weeks break at Easter and Christmas and about 12 weeks in the sum-

erg

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 ate
also lawyers or business men or have other jobs which take up theit morn-
nings are never able to take their share of committee work, Usually the
-Aouse sits until ten o’clock at night, so the day is long.

Amateurs And Experts

Doning 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 schoo! com-
mittee. But the call of Parliament must come first—each Party has “Whips”
who summon MeP.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.

teurs,

gard as amateurs. The pay is now £1,750 a yeat—less than many Civil Ser-
schools. Out of this a Member must buy his stamps pay his secretary,
board himself in London if his famiuy home is in the country and entertain
‘his constituents when they visit Wester insier.

But for all the complaints, nobody ever leaves Westminster gladly.
The first thought in electoral defeat is usually of how soon one can pet
back. Back to the job once explained in classic terms by Edmund Burke
in a speech to the electors of Bristol:

“Parliament is not a congress of ambassadors from different and hos-
ule interests. , . but Parliament is a deliberative assembly of one nation, with
one interest, that of the who'e; where not local purposes, not local prejudices
ought to guide, but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the
whole. You choose a member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he
is not member of Bristol, but he 1s a member of Parliament.”’ (BIS)

' remember‘a®: Division I match was

brought about by inept bowling and
batting on the part of a ‘team which
has (and should have), done much,
better. Winning the toss, Warwicks’ |
skipper Benny Pierre, sent Police
in to bat on a_ wicket affected by
overnight rain.

Ina 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 of a Dom

Eric Richards in 1949. The Dom-
inican team did a little worse; chey
were all out for 12. Warwicks on
this occasion were all out for 18,
