The FCO’s consultation on the UK Overseas Territories set out six key questions for public comment. Respondents could also reply privately, and build a ‘widget’ from the questions to embed on their own site, linking through to the consultation

The Foreign Secretary made an announcement to Parliament on 14 September 2011 setting out the UK Government’s strategy towards the Overseas Territories. This focused on three policy goals:

– to strengthen the engagement and interaction between the UK and the Territories
– to work with Territories to strengthen good governance arrangements, public financial management and economic planning where this is necessary; and
-to improve the quality and range of support available to the Territories.

The Government is keen to gather views on how best to realise these goals in each Territory and invites, in particular, responses to six key questions.
