I beg to move Amendment No. 7, in page 4, line 42, after 'Kingdom', to insert:

or on an installation in a designated area within the meaning of the Continental Shelf Act 1964 or on a ship registered in the United Kingdom or an aircraft so registered'.
It may be for the convenience of the House to consider with it Amendment No. 8.

It is always as well if the occupant of the Chair knows beforehand, because he must protect the interests of the minority. If the Opposition have no objection, I have no objection. So be it.

These Amendments are to meet points raised by hon. Gentlemen opposite in Committee. They are designed to ensure that the Parliamentary Commissioner will have power to investigate actions taking place on ships or aircraft registered in the United Kingdom, or on that part of the Continental Shelf which contains an installation or designated area within the meaning of the Continental Shelf Act, 1964.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: No. 8, in page 4, line 43 at the end insert:

'or on such an installation, ship or aircraft'. —[Mr. MacDermot.]
