In December 2012 the UK government announced its intention to review resettlement policy towards the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT). The ongoing review is taking into account a range of information, including an independent feasibility study of the practical costs and risks associated with potential resettlement of the Territory, alongside other options that could respond to Chagossian aspirations. In March 2015, Ministers of the UK Government agreed that further work was required to clarify a number of uncertainties in this area. Work is now underway to do so, including exploration of the potential costs and liabilities of, and likely demand for, resettlement. This further work will help inform future decisions on the way ahead.
