I have the honour to inform you that, pursuant to the St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Constitution Order 2009 (United Kingdom Statutory Instrument 2009/1751), the name of the British overseas territory formerly called "St Helena and Dependencies" has been changed to "St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha". The status of the territory as a British overseas territory is unchanged, and accordingly the United Kingdom remains responsible for its external relations. To the extent that treaties extend to St Helena and Dependencies, they continue to extend to St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha.
