Overseas Territories Minister plans visit

Overseas Territories Minister Henry Bellingham is planning a visit to Bermuda in the next three weeks.

The Conservative MP, who has already met Premier Paula Cox and her predecessor Ewart Brown when they visited the UK, is expected on the Island before the end of this month, although Deputy Governor David Arkley said details are still being finalised.

Mr Arkley said in a statement: “Henry Bellingham, MP, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office with responsibility for the Overseas Territories, is planning to visit Bermuda.

“His visit is still in the planning stages and I cannot at this point confirm the dates for his visit or who he will meet. Government House will of course issue a press release relating to the visit in due course as and when the details are confirmed.”

Mr Bellingham has previously welcomed Ms Cox’s strong emphasis on financial discipline and greater transparency.
