dc.description.abstract This report looks at the commission of inquiry which was to begin to investigate the St. Lucia UN funds scandal, has been adjourned in light of an impending ruling on a writ of prohibition. Contrary to an earlier report, Prime Minister John Compton was in St. Lucia during two days of industrial protest on May 11th and 12th. The European Trade and Agriculture Commissioners told US Trade Representative Mickey Kantor they were unable to meet the US demands to open up their banana market to American producers. The European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid, Emma Bonino intends to make it clear to the Clinton Administration that there is disquiet in Europe over proposals to tighten sanctions against Cuba. In cricket, far from West Indies Manager Wes Hall's predictions, the West Indies are stuck in the starting blocks. The Errol Barrow Memorial Lecture in London examines the importance of West Indies cricket as a model for Caribbean unity. Professor Hilary Beckles, cricket historian, was the keynote speaker and comments on the issue. In recent years, Barbados has won medals at the Chelsea Flower Show in London. This year they are back with an exotic display of tropical flowers. en_US
