HC Deb 30 June 1966 vol 730 cc327-8W
56. Mr. Godman Irvine

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what funds are available in the British Virgin Islands to enable the opportunity to be taken arising from private land reclamation at Road Town, to construct a new road and improve other facilities.

Mr. Oram

The Government of the British Virgin Islands is at present investigating the cost of the reclamation and waterfront road scheme for Road Town and until this has been done it is not possible to consider possible methods of finance. In the meantime a Colonial Development and Welfare grant of $40,000 has been approved in principle for some reclamation and drainage work in connection with the project.
