Speaking ahead of his visit, Henry Bellingham said: "I am really looking forward to visiting the Cayman Islands, which I have heard and read so much about. I welcome the opportunity to meet members of the Government and the wider community face to face during my visit, to see the Islands for myself and to learn more about the Cayman Islands and its people."
