§ 77. Mr. Knox Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the ratification by the United Kingdom of the International Convention relating to the Limitation of Liability of Sea-going Ships, 1957, he will take steps to have the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958, applied to the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, respectively, by Orders in Council made under Section 11 of the said Act.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The authorities in Guernsey and the Isle of Man have agreed to the making of Orders in Council under Section 11 of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958, to enable the Convention to be extended to their territories. I understand that the States of Jersey will be recommended to agree to this at their next meeting.
