HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c487W
Mr. Peter Archer

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, for the avoidance of doubt, he will take steps to elucidate whether the area of sea between the island of Rockall and the coast of Scotland is included within the District of Harris.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Apart from the normal three-mile territorial sea, and subject to the 12-mile fishery limit, both of which appertain to both the island and the mainland, we regard the intervening area of sea as being part of the high seas.
