To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of the statement made by the Chief Minister of Anguilla that Anguilla's "biggest dilemma is Britain which is not our friend ... They are no asset to us. They are our liability".

We are not aware that the Chief Minister has made such a statement. The UK Government have provided a range of advice to assist the Government of Anguilla to generate economic growth and balance their budget by the start of 2013. This has included specialist advice on public sector reform and continuing support on criminal justice and disaster management issues. We now look to the Government of Anguilla to take the necessary action.
