§ 62. Rear-Admiral Morgan Giles
asked the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what definition she makes of the width of territorial 342W waters surrounding the islands of Gan, Aldabra, Farquhar Desroches, Diego Garcia, and the Chagos Archipelago.
§ Mrs. White
Gan is part of the Mal-dive Islands, an independent State. For the other islands the answer is three sea miles, measured from baselines drawn in accordance with the Geneva Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone.
