HC Deb 23 January 1989 vol 145 c371W
57. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on British aid to the Caribbean dependencies.

Mr. Chris Patten

In the most recent year for which figures are available (1987), British aid disbursements to the four Caribbean dependencies in receipt of aid were £8,767,000, or £214 per head.

I visited the Turks and Caicos Islands, the largest recipient of our aid, from 5 to 8 January and subsequently chaired in Barbados a meeting of dependent territory governors to review aid policy in the dependencies.
