HC Deb 08 April 1971 vol 815 c274W
Mr. Rees-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps Her Majesty's Government have taken to urge other countries to ratify the 1969 Brussels Convention relating to intervention in cases of emergency where there has been oil pollution from the high seas, and whether this will be pursued with the powers concerned as a matter of urgency.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Her Majesty's Government take every suitable opportunity of drawing the attention of other countries to the desirability of ratifying the Convention and will continue to do so.
