Since the start of the volcanic crisis some £45.8 million of emergency aid, development assistance and budgetary aid has been committed by Her Majesty's Government to the needs of Montserrat. We are currently working with the Government of Montserrat to develop a sustainable development plan for the north of the island and doing all we can to improve the services provided by Government of Montserrat for the people and the Island. We are also providing assistance to those who wish to leave Montserrat.
