§ Sir Knox Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and for the Colonies if he will approach the Government of Antigua 191W 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.
