HC Deb 07 April 1964 vol 692 cc190-1W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and for the Colonies if he will approach the Government of Antigua and ask whether they wish the enlarged Admiralty jurisdiction conferred upon the High Court of the United Kingdom by the Administration of Justice Act, 1956, and the terms of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958, respectively, to be extended to Antigua by Orders in Council.

Mr. Sandys

The Administrator of Antigua is being consulted and I will write to the hon. and learned Member as soon as his reply is received.
