HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 c60W
Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

asked the Minister of Overseas Development how much has been spent in each year from 1960 to the latest convenient date on improving public services on Anguilla.

Mr. Prentice

Disbursements on Colonial Development and Welfare schemes approved specifically for Anguilla were as follows:

1960–61 17,000
1961–62 2,000
1962–63 3,000
1963–64 3,000
1964–65 6,000
1965–66 21,000
1966–67 37,000
1967–68 31,000

In addition, £50,000 development aid was made available to Anguilla under the interim settlement during the financial year 1968–69. These figures do not include recurrent expenditure on public services met from the islands' budget as supported by budgetary aid. (A repayment of £17,000, not shown in the table, was made by Anguilla during 1964–65 in respect of over-disbursements on earlier schemes.)
