§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies what grants and loans have been made from Colonial Development and Welfare Funds to the island of Rodrigues.
§ Mr. Sandys
Rodrigues is a dependency of Mauritius and has therefore no separate allocation of Colonial Development and Welfare Funds. But Mauritius development plans cover substantial capital expenditure on Rodrigues, including £433,800 on agricultural rehabilitation and development, of which over half has already been spent with good results.
