Is my right hon. Friend aware that I share his concern about these incidents and that Thurrock, which is a neighbour of Canvey Island and which experienced great fear last night, suffers equally from the dangers of such an explosion, since there are two oil refineries, power stations and oil depots intermingled with housing in one part of the Thurrock constituency? Will my right hon. Friend ensure that all possible support is given to the Essex police in their attempts to deal with further threats, and direct their attention to the dangers that exist in Thurrock as well as on Canvey Island?
