HC Deb 30 January 1969 vol 776 c370W
55. Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether he has now received the report from Economic Associates Limited on the extension of the airport at St. Kitts to take tourist traffic; whether the report is to be published; and if he will now announce his decision on the use of British funds to aid the project.

Mr. Oram

The report was received at the end of December but it is for the St. Kitts Government, to whom it was made, to decide whether or not to publish it. Until the report has been considered by and with the St. Kitts Government, I cannot add to my earlier statement that, subject to this examination, I have agreed in principle to the use for this purpose of the bulk of the C.D.W. funds allocated to St. Kitts up to March, 1970.
