§ Mr. Peter Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has to solve the problem of the ownership of the Kissy Jetty in Sierra Leone.
§ Mr. Ennals
The jetty, which was built by the Admiralty in 1925, belongs to the Sierra Leone Government On Sierra Leone's independence in 1961 the jetty was leased to the Admiralty. Her Majesty's Government plan to assign their interest in the jetty to the Sierra Leone Government if satisfactory terms can be agreed with them, and are in discussions with the Sierra Leone Government. On Sierra 1 am conscious of the need to reach a satisfactory agreement with the Sierra Leone Government as speedily as possible.
