Tubantia Property Law?

(sorry for cross-posting. The subject matter is OT for both groups.)

AFAIK in the UK there used to be a legal text commonly referred
to as the "Tubantia Property Law". I suppose this law was named
after the jurisdiction over the salvage rights claims by two
parties for the Tubantia wreck (1924?), which apparently caused
quite a stir at the time.

Can any of you people provide me with the full text of - either
the ruling or the actual lawtext ?
(I tried different search engines/metasearchers, to no avail.)

In dutch :

In het Verenigd Koninkrijk bestond/bestaat er blijkbaar zoiets
als een "Tubantia Property Law". Naar ik vermoed zou de berging
van de kostbaarheden uit het wrak van de Tubantia (1924?) voor
heel wat heisa hebben gezorgd. Wellicht was die Tubantia Law
daar het rechtstreekse gevolg van.

Is er iemand die mij daar de exacte tekst van kan bezorgen?
