29. Mr. Peter Archer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will submit proposals to the United Nations for an international agreement for co-ordinating domestic provisions relating to arrest, jurisdiction to try, and punishment of persons hijacking international aircraft.

Mr. Anthony Royle

The Convention for the suppression of Unlawful Seizure of Aircraft, which provides an international legal frame-work for bringing hi-jackers to justice, was concluded at The Hague on 16th December, 1970. Its text will shortly be laid before Parliament as a White Paper.
