HC Deb 08 July 1966 vol 731 cc112-3W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what 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 the Isle of Man, 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 Isle of Man authorities, if they so wish, to take the initiative in this matter.
