Mr. Newens

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he plans to amend article XXVI (6) of the Royal Instructions to the governor of Hong Kong.

a report on the recent operation involving the offloading and salvage of the tanker "Tarpenbek".

Mr. Tebbit

My Department will be reviewing this successful operation, in which no cargo oil escaped and only minimal light bunker oil pollution occurred at sea, where it was readily dispersed. A full report will be compiled, and copies of the report will be placed in the Library when it is issued.
