My hon. Friend the previous Minister of State has had talks with a number of oil companies about their development plans for their fields in the United Kingdom sector of the North Sea and the possibility of their advancing orders for oil production platforms. These talks have been very useful in providing a full understanding of the technical considerations which play a very important ô in the companies' field development thinking. It is my intention to follow up these exploratory talks with detailed discussions with some of the companies.
