HC Deb 25 July 1956 vol 557 cc53-4W
Mr. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the nature of the changes desired by the United States in the jurisdictional provisions of the agreements relating to United States defence in the Caribbean and South Atlantic, as foreshadowed in Command Paper No. 9812.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

I cannot predict what form the United States proposals will take. The United States Government no doubt have in mind the wider powers of jurisdiction they enjoy over their service and civilian personnel in the United Kingdom.
