HL Deb 26 March 1984 vol 450 c125WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether it is their intention not to extend the United Kingdom's territorial sea to 12 miles until they have secured alterations to their satisfaction in the seabed mining provisions of the Law of the Sea Convention.

Baroness Young

In commenting on the extension of the United Kingdom's territorial sea in the debate in this House on 15th February, I indicated that this and other issues of the law of the sea, some of which are interlinked, would have to be kept under review. These questions include the timing and circumstances when we might make any particular move, including the extension to which the noble Lord refers.
