HC Deb 15 July 1942 vol 381 cc1239-40W
Mr. Riley

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether American nationals employed or residing within the leased areas of naval bases in the West Indies, and who commit offences outside the leased areas, are subjected to the ordinary laws of the Colony; and, if not, what is their position?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

The position is generally as stated by my hon. Friend; but I would invite attention to Article IV of the Agreement with the United States relating to the bases.
