HC Deb 22 June 1965 vol 714 cc183-4W
68. Mr. Nigel Fisher

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what financial aid she proposes to allocate to Gibraltar to offset the effect upon the economy of the Colony due to the frontier restrictions imposed by Spain.

Mrs. Castle

I am unable to give the hon. Member precise figures of the development aid for Gibraltar until the Overseas Development and Service Bill which is still before the House has received the Royal Assent. I would, however, refer him to the statement made by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies on 15th April when she said that the Gibraltar Government will over the first three years of the currency of the new Bill receive at least half as much again in aid as they have been receiving in the latest period.
