Report from Diego Garcia visit

Thursday, April 16, 2009

When Meg was a Minister in the Foreign Office she had responsibility for the British Indian Ocean Territories, which include the Chagos Islands and Diego Garcia. She met representatives from the communities who used to live there who are now resident in the UK and agreed that a small group could visit the islands. This month three of the six people who undertook the trip came to tell Meg about their visit, accompanied by Laura Moffat, MP for Crawley where many Diego Garcians now live.

 

The travellers were impressed by the unique and pristine landscape of many of the outer islands, totally unspoilt they are a haven for wildlife. But there is evidence that some of the islands are experiencing problems of rising sea waters. The group were able to visit graves of family and friends and one of the older members of the group saw the remains of the house were he grew up. The entire group felt it had been a very worthwhile and positive visit, which they hope will be the first of many to come.
