HC Deb 07 November 1960 vol 629 c18W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Lord Privy Seal Which of the thirty nine countries which, on 3rd February, 1960, did not then accept the jurisdiction of the Court of International Justice, have since agreed to accept it; and which of them accept it with, and which without, reservation, indicating the nature of the reservation in each case.

Mr. Heath

My hon. Friend informed the hon. and learned Gentelman on 3rd February, 1960, that thirty nine countries do accept the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice. Since that date no additional countries have declared their acceptance of the Court's jurisdiction. However, Pakistan and Honduras have deposited declarations renewing their acceptance of the compulsory jurisdiction of the Court; copies of these declarations are in the Library of the House.
