§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have received a report from the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany on the collision which occurred on 6th March between a German submarine and an oil platform in the North Sea, in the course of which it is understood that the submarine's sonar provided no warning of the underwater installations.
§ Lord Trefgarne
We have received no report of this incident from the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. The oil platform in question is in the Norwegian sector, and the matter is therefore for those two governments to resolve.
