UK MINISTER ANNOUNCES LOTTERY MONEY FOR UK OVERSEAS TERRITORIES

By J. Brock (FINN)

The Hon Mr Henry Bellingham MP, the UK’s Minister for Overseas Territories (OSTs) visited Bermuda on Wednesday and held a press conference in which he said that he is seeking to pass on some of the benefits of Britain’s National Lottery to the Overseas Territories.  Some of this money could reach the Falklands.

 

With some £1.5 Billion in the Lottery fund, the Minister indicated that some of the money could be used to promote sport and other activities amongst the UK Overseas Territories’ widespread residents totaling some 280,000.

 

“It seems to me grossly unfair that the citizens of these Territories who have British passports, that they are keen to retain the link with Britain and it seems to me quite wrong and anomalous that they can’t enjoy the benefits of the Lottery.”

 

Serious negotiations between the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport, and the Lottery Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund, would be needed to secure the dosh but the Minister said that he viewed this project as a priority.

 

Overseas Territories this would help are: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Pitcairn, St Helena and St Helena Dependencies, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands, Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, The Turks & Caicos Islands.
