The Falkland Islands Government have given priority to the £15 million civil rehabilitation programme. Final decisions on the use of the £31 million development money have not yet been made, although tentative allocations were in mind when my right hon. Friend the Member for Cambridgeshire, South-East (Mr. Pym) announced that commitment on 8 December last. Important progress his been made in preparation for this development work, and the Falkland Islands Government are considering whether they wish to adjust their priorities to free resources for purposes not originally covered.
