§ Mr. Cronin
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what steps he is taking finally to eradicate piracy off the coast of Borneo.
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
Eradication of piracy off the coast of Borneo is not, of course, a matter for the Navy alone and we are in close touch here and locally with other Departments and authorities concerned. The Navy's part consists in continuing frequent but irregular patrols by H.M. ships which are achieving successful results in terms of arrests of suspects.
