HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c225W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Minister of State for Defence what illegal military activities in the Bahamas have been uncovered by a Royal Marine Commando group; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kirk

In January of this year a Royal Marine training exercise was carried out in the Bahamas. During the exercise the opportunity was taken to conduct searches of Andros Island and of Williams and Billy Islands which lie off the west coast of Andros. A skeleton, spent ammunition and used medical equipment which were discovered indicated that the islands could have been used illegally.
