§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the disturbance on the pirate radio ship "Galaxy" in the North Sea on Christmas day during which British police were called to the ship; and if he will call for a report on the incident, indicating the place of registration of the ship, whether the incident occurred in British Territorial waters, and how it was dealt with.
§ Mr. George Thomas
The chief constable of Essex has sent my right hon. Friend a report on this incident, which occurred on a foreign ship anchored outside British territorial waters. No police powers were exercised in connection with it.
