HC Deb 29 July 1966 vol 732 c363W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will approach the authorities of St. Helena and ask them to give further consideration to the incorporation into their legal system of the terms of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958, in order that the people of St. Helena may enjoy the same rights and benefits as have existed in the United Kingdom and many Commonwealth territories during the past eight years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stonehouse

I have approached the authorities of St. Helena who are considering the matter.
