HC Deb 16 January 1975 vol 884 cc159-60W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the agreements between the United Kingdom and United States governing the extradition of hijackers of aircraft; and if he is satisfied that the arrangements under those agreements are satisfactory.

Mr. Ennals

The United Kingdom and the United States of America are parties to the 1970 Hague Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Seizure of Aircraft. This convention, together with domestic legislation, establishes reciprocal facilities between the two countries for the extradition of hijackers. I am satisfied that the normal machinery of extradition is available for the offence of hijacking.
