St Helena

Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when the new Governor of St. Helena will be (a) named and (b) in post. (149909)

The announcement of the appointment of a new governor will be made when all the recruitment procedures have been completed satisfactorily and the appointment has been approved by Her Majesty The Queen and notified formally to the current governor and St. Helena executive council. I hope that this will be achieved in order to allow the new governor to take up their post before the end of 2007.
