MC:P2/13 Papers on Dodds-Parker’s work in the Turks and Caicos Islands
In August 1965, Dodds-Parker visited the Cayman Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands, two small British dependencies in the Caribbean, at the request of the then Labour government as part of an investigation then being carried out into how Britain’s smaller dependencies might best be helped. Following this visit, Dodds-Parker became interested in how to help the Turks and Caicos islands, and, for the next few years, spent much time trying to further their interests by encouraging investment, becoming a director of both the Caicos Company and Air Caicos, two local businesses. Other papers on these islands may be found at MC:P2/7/2MS/6, MC:P2/7/4C/11 and 15, MC:P2/9/1C/3, 5, 18 and 22 and MC:P2/12/1MS/4.
