The inquiry, led by Sir Hugh1; Wooding, former chief justice Trinidad and Totego, was sctj up to solve one of the strangest j episodes in Britain's attempt lo: ease the burden? of empire. Angiiifla, 35 square '''lies nfj coral outcrop 1.5CO mites south-! east of Miami, was linked in 1987 with Us two iiliifid neigh-; bors in an assoeiattd state, with j Britain responsible for defence while the islanders ran their own internal affairs. i This system had worked as an I alternative to colonial rule in other small dependencies but the Atiguillans didn't like it. They claimed the slate wasj dominated by the largo- island j cf St. Kills and in [96? they put federal police on a boat and told them not lo come back. In March last year, word was I put around London that gam-' biers, drug runners and the Mafia had taken over AnguilUi These charges were never sub- stantiated but Britain staged a full-scale invasion of the island and deposed its 1 o c a 11 y -a p- pointed president.

An-1 giulla and Nevis should be given greater representation in the state's house of assembly and in the police and public service commissions. Britain presumably now urge the three islands to accept a revised constitution on the basis of Woe-ding's report. Brit- ain is however, not to impose on Ihe AnguiHans a solution they don't want.

Police Sieze Big Amount Of Weapons MONTREAL (CP) A total Jacques Laru-Langlois and fcr- of 136 offensive weapons. rounds of ammunition and sticks of dynamite have been seized in anti-terrorist raids since mid-October, police said Friday. Inspector J. L-. Melanson of Quebec Provincial Police said most of the weapons, including revolvers, rifles, sawed-off shot- guns, knives and bayonets, will be held in evidence against some of those arraigned Thurs- day in scattered parts of Quebec province. Those arraigned, including labor leader Michel Chartrand, author Pierre Vailieres, lawyer Robert L e m i e u x, journalist raer sociology lecturer Charles Gagnon, were charged with crimes ranging from seditious conspiracy to assault. They were arrested under the War Measures Act, proclaimed Oct. J6 after city and provincial authorities said they feared in- surrection following the terror- ist kidnappings of British diplo- mat James R. (Jasper) Cross and provincial labor minister Pierre Lapoiie. Part of the fear of terrorist insurrection was based on the theft over the last several months of sticks of dyna- mite, which authorities said could be used for bombs. Insp. Melanson said more than sticks remain unaccounted for. He said police have conducted anti-terrorist raids under the War Measures Act and ar- rested 429 persons. Of these, he said, 372 have teen released. Dollar Down NEW YORK (CP) Cana- dian dollar down 5-64 at 97 in terms of U.S. funds. Week ago 98 1-16. Pound sterling un- changed at 52.39 13-64.
