HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 cc241-2W
53. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action has been taken, in concert with other Governments, and through the United Nations, to prevent piracy against aircraft.

Mr. Mulley

We are actively engaged in dealing with the problem of unlawful seizure of aircraft. The International Civil Aviation Organisation, a Specialised Agency of the United Nations, has set up a committee of members of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, including a United Kingdom representative. This committee is searching for new methods of preventing "hi-jacking".
