asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what steps he is taking to implement resolution 6 passed by the International Conference on Pollution of the Sea by Oil in which are set out interim measures to be taken pending the coming into force of the convention.

To a large extent this resolution has already been implemented by voluntary action in the United Kingdom. I hope that it will be possible at an early date to introduce legislation which will not only enable the resolution to be fully implemented, but will also enable Her Majesty's Government to accept the convention as a whole.
