HC Deb 24 July 1964 vol 699 c155W
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.
