HC Deb 28 May 1965 vol 713 c127W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Tongan Government have indicated their views as to whether the enlarged Admiralty jurisdiction, conferred upon the High Court of the United Kingdom by the Administration of Justice Act, 1956, should be incorporated in the legal system of Tonga; and what progress is being made to apply such enlarged jurisdiction to this territory.

Mr. Greenwood

The Government of Tonga have not been able to inform me of their wishes in this matter. I regret therefore that I am unable to add to the reply which was given to the hon. and learned Member on 1st December, 1964.
