HC Deb 10 December 1982 vol 33 c630W
Dr. Edmund Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the present position concerning proposals for the delimitation of the continental shelf between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

Mr. Rifkind

Officials from the two sides met on 26 November in London for talks on various technical aspects of the draft agreement to set up a court of arbitration for delimitation of the continental shelf. More work needs to be done before a further meeting can be held, probably in the early part of the next year.
