HC Deb 24 January 1977 vol 924 c383W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what policy, in relation to uninhabitable islands, will be adopted by Her Majesty's Government when the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea resumes deliberations in May 1977.

Dr. Owen

Her Majesty's Government will continue to maintain, as at previous sessions of the Conference, that there should be no distinction between islands in their entitlement to generate an economic zone and continental shelf.
