§ Sir Knox Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Aden and the New Hebrides, insofar as British nationals are concerned, have indicated their views as to the terms of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958; and what progress is being made in the application of such terms to these territories.
§ Mr. Greenwood
Aden's views are still awaited. As regards the New Hebrides (in so far as British national are concerned) a draft Order in Council extending the Act to British legal system in the Territory is in preparation.
