HC Deb 06 July 1966 vol 731 cc72-3W
74. Mr. Deedes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to provide that the disused military towers in the Thames estuary shall fall within United Kingdom jurisdiction; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Under the Territorial Waters Jurisdiction Act, 1878, indictable offences committed in territorial waters are within the jurisdiction of the courts of this country. I see no need for legislation other than the Bill to deal with offshore radio stations which is to be introduced before the Summer Recess.
