HC Deb 16 December 1974 vol 883 c317W
Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will define the area of the so-called Celtic Sea.

Mr. Judd

The name Celtic Sea has been approved by the Hydrographer of the Navy for use on Admiralty charts and publications to define the sea bounded roughly by lines joining Ushant, Land's End, Hartland Point, Lundy Island, St. Govan's Head and Rosslare, thence following the Irish coast south to Mizen Head and then along the 200-metre isobath to approximately the latitude of Ushant.
