HC Deb 12 November 1974 vol 881 c104W
Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement about constitutional changes and economic aid in St. Kitts and Nevis and in Anguilla.

Miss Joan Lestor

In accordance with the undertaking to review the constitutional status of Anguilla which was given by Her Majesty's Government in 1971, I visited St. Kitts and Anguilla in September 1974, where I had discussions with the Premier, the Leader of the Anguilla Council and other leading citizens. My colleagues are now considering my report.

Budgetary and development aid to St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla has averaged about £1.5 million a year in recent years; technical assistance has averaged about £200,000 a year.
