§ Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what consideration has been given to the effect of the Act of 1702 relating to the limitation of land leases in Trinidad on the agreement made in 1941 to lease the Chaguaramas base to the United States of America for 99 years; and what action is to be taken in this regard.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I assume that the hon. Member refers to the Crown Lands Act, 1702. I am advised that the provisions of that Act are not applicable to land outside Great Britain.
