HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c358W
32. Mr. Wise

asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what assistance his Department has provided for the island of St. Helena in recent years; and if he will arrange for one of his officials to visit that island.

Mr. R. Carr

In the last three years my Department has spent about £ 29,000 on technical assistance to St. Helena in the form of research projects, training under Commonwealth Education Cooperation, and through the Overseas Service Aid Scheme. Under the latter we have recruited 13 men and women for the St. Helena Government.

I will bear in mind the possibility of St. Helena being included in tours made by my officials.
