Replying in the George Hall said that the policy of the United States authorities was to base the rates payable for locally engaged labour on those prevailing in the territory or local- ity for comparable work under similar conditions. That practice was being followed generally in the Colonies and in ac- cordance with it the rates were being determined- .by the United States representatives in consulta- tion with the Colonial authorities. Mr. Adams then asked if the answer meant that no encourage- ment was being given by the Col- onial Department to Colonial Gov- ernments to encourage the pay- tho se prevailing were on a subsistence or less than subsistence level. we were concerned replied Mr. that wages lower 'than the prevailing rates should not be paid. It is a question the Mr.-Riley'then asked if Mr. Hall was aware that there were no trade unions in the West Indies for of these and whether the policy of His 'Maj- esty's Government was to get Col- onial Governors to encourage the raising of the standard' rates for labour of this kind whenever it was possible to do Mr. Hall in reply but whore there are nn trade unions there arc wages ordinances in i Rockfort Gardens when a city became em- broiled with a picnic party from Gordon Town.

Were carried out last orderly conduct. The first intimation the po- lice had of the affair was when they got a rush message that there was a riot at Rockfort Gardens. When they they found a melee in full rage.

The Report referred to was a majority advocating an elected House of Assembly and a nominated Legislative and signed by eleven elected members. Of these eleven members six signed a rider urging that Ihe House of Assembly should consist of twenty- eight members and not as in the main The remaining three elected members signed a mi- nority Report in favour of only one Legislative Council of forty members whom six would be elected.
