Annex 2. Capacity on the North Atlantic

  • Handley Stevens


The control of capacity was a key UK objective in the original negotiation of Bermuda 2 (Chap.  2). Any such control was strongly resisted by the US, who insisted on a drop-dead clause after seven years (1977 text, para 12). However this was extended for a further two years, and the more liberal text negotiated in 1986 (Chap.  3), substituted for the original by an Exchange of Notes dated 25 May 1989 (Cm. 972) continued in force throughout the remaining life of the agreement.
