§ Mr. Gow
asked the Minister of Overseas Development what was the total cost to her Department of the recently completed airfield at Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands; and whether she will list the project and the amount of aid given, or to be given, to each project in the Falkland Islands during each of the five years ending 5 April 1980.
§ Mrs. Hart
£5.8 million. The following capital aid projects, a number of which will continue into future years, have been approved in the years and for the amounts show:
£ 1976–77 Oil Jetty 283,000* 1977–78 Beaver aircraft 57,000† Broadcasting equipment 4,000† 1978–79 X-ray equipment 32,000† Rehabilitation of PWD equipment 80,000* Ambulance 10,000† Stanley-Darwin Road 795,000* Stanley school hostel (including access road) 415,000* Purchase of Islander aircraft (including hangar and equipment) 282,000* * Grant terms. †Loan terms.
To work out the actual or estimated expenditure on each of these projects in each of the five years would take longer than the time available for answering this question.
