HC Deb 14 February 1966 vol 724 c169W
86. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government will take steps to ensure the extension of international law to make it wide enough to define the status of the territory of the moon, to settle any claims that may be made to control areas of it, and to regulate agreements upon the use of its surface.

Mr. Padley

This is a problem which the United Nations is tackling. We shall continue to play a constructive part in the work of the Legal Sub-Committee of its Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space.
