St Kitts and Nevis: While continuing his league to announce his new decision for the people of St Kitts and Nevis, Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris stated that his government has declared to return the 800 acres of land from Labour’s Land for Debt Swap. 

He stated that 800 acres of 1700 acres forfeited by the Douglas-led Administration were now returned to the people by Prime Minister Timothy Harris-led government. The PM Harris-led St Kitts and Nevis government has redeemed another 400 acres of land from Labour’s Land for Debt Swap.
