§ Mr. Ford
asked the Minister of Overseas Development what financial assistance she is proposing to furnish by means of development grant to the Leeward group of islands, in order that they may rapidly provide basic services so as to enable them to move more quickly towards a state of economic self-sufficiency.
§ Mrs. Castle
Under the Overseas Development and Service Act, 1965, I have made allocations for the Leward Islands —Antigua, St. Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla and Montserrat—for the three years 1965 to 1968, totalling £1,955,000, including unspent balances from the previous period. The Governments of the Islands concerned have been notified.
