HC Deb 01 July 1966 vol 730 c340W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether progress has been made in drafting an order in council under the Administration of Justice Act, 1956, to enable the benefits arising from the enlarged Admiralty jurisdiction of the courts to apply to the people of Guernsey, in view of the fact that these legal rights have been exercised by the people of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland for the last 10 years.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I consider, as my predecessors have done, that it is for the Guernsey authorities, if they so wish, to take the initiative in this matter.
