HC Deb 31 July 1981 vol 9 c628W
Mr. Prescott

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what dispensation from the shipping requirements applied to vessel "Barbara B" which sailed on 7 April; when it was given; and to whom.

Mr. Eyre

At the time when it became a casualty, the "Barbara B" was registered in the Cayman Islands, and was thus subject to Cayman Islands law. As far as I am concerned, therefore, the answer is "None".
