HC Deb 03 March 1982 vol 19 c185W
Mr. Ward

asked the Lord Privy Seal what is his policy towards the draft law of the sea which is to be tabled at the United Nations conference in March; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hurd

We would like to see a generally acceptable convention adopted by consensus. We welcome President Reagan's decision to work with other countries to achieve an acceptable convention and hope negotiations can take place at the forthcoming session to that end.
