HC Deb 25 April 1980 vol 983 c296W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he will seek to amend section 7 of the Territorial Waters Jurisdiction Act 1878 so that its provisions will cover the three-mile limit of territorial sea off the coast of Northern Ireland, in order that acts of oil pollution within the three-mile limit can be brought within its scope.

Mr. Giles Shaw

No. I am satisfied with the existing arrangements, but I keep them under review.
