§ Mr. Allason
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many Ministers in the Turks and Caicos Government have been convicted of drug offences or corruption since 1984.
§ Mr. Eggar
Three Turks and Caicos Ministers were convicted on drugs charges in the United States of America in 1985.
There have been no further convictions since we suspended ministerial government in the Turks and Caicos Islands in 1986. A new constitution came into effect with the return of ministerial government in March 1988.
