HC Deb 20 July 1979 vol 970 c854W
Mr. McElhone

asked the Lord Privy Seal what assessment he has made of the economic consequences for Dominica resulting from the political turmoil in that State; and whether he intends to increase United Kingdom aid to Dominica.

Mr. Neil Marten

Her Majesty's Government have not yet made an assessment of the economic situation following the recent political changes in Dominica. A joint review of our special financial assistance to Dominica was due in June but has been rearranged for August. There will be no increase in the £10 million development aid promised to Dominica following its independence last year.
