HC Deb 24 March 1969 vol 780 cc220-1W
84. Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what plans he has made for the resumption of development aid to Anguilla; what projects are to be started or completed in the next year; and what total outlay is involved.

Mr. Prentice

Development aid to Anguilla will now be resumed and detailed arrangements will be made as soon as possible. Officials of my Department will visit Anguilla this week and the British Development Division in the Caribbean will be in continuing consultation with Her Majesty's Commissioner. Priority will be given to the completion of those schemes which were in train when the interim settlement ended in January, including the erection of a new school, road improvements and a low tension electricity distribution system. The cost of these schemes is likely to be about £50,000.
