Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Oil Supplies (6 Jul 1981)

Mr Hamish Gray: My right hon. Friend's report to Parliament on the development of the oil and gas resources of the United Kingdom in 1981 estimated future finds at between 775 million and 1,775 million tonnes. Until much more exploration has taken place it is not possible to assess the possible oil-bearing potential of the United Kingdom onshore areas.

Wytch Farm Oilfield (8 Jul 1981)

Miss Betty Boothroyd: ...), who raised the point of order, is listening to my reasons. As I said, the taxpayer is being robbed because it is that money, matched with experience and initiative, that has made British Gas's onshore oil development the success story that it undoubtedly is. The second reason is that the directive is nothing short of sabotage of a successful and profitable State industry whose...

Orders of the Day — British Gas Corporation (Wytch Farm Oilfield) (27 Jul 1981)

Mr Ted Rowlands: ...only is there the oilfield—which they believed existed—there is a second, deeper, major reservoir of oil. The British Gas team has been the driving force in the exploration of Britain's largest onshore field. I should have thought that this spirit, initiative, enterprise and skill would be applauded by the Government. I should have thought that it would be recognised by ministerial...

Prayers: Debate on the Address (4 Nov 1981)

Mr Gregor Mackenzie: ...a day, not even for illness. At the age of 48 or 49, and after 25 years of his life given to industry he has suddenly found himself thrown on the industrial scrapheap, with little hope of ever finding another job. That is the reality of unemployment for such people. The hon. Member for Dumfries (Sir H. Monro) applauded the efforts of the Manpower Services Commission on behalf of...

Orders of the Day — Oil and Gas (Enterprise) Bill (19 Jan 1982)

Mr John Hannam: ...could have applied to BP in 1977, but I do not recall the Opposition making a song and dance about that requirement then. I shall be interested to hear whether they did. Britoil is to explore for, find and produce the oil and gas that we need to maintain self-sufficiency through the 1990s. We need to give a major fillip to exploitation and development activity during the coming years. We...

Orders of the Day — Oil and Gas (Enterprise) Bill (1 Apr 1982)

Mr Gordon Wilson: If I have a message for the hon. Member for Dorset, South (Viscount Cranborne) it is that he will find it difficult to persuade the House authorities to change their procedures. While the hon. Gentleman occupies the Government Back Benches, his role is to remain silent. His sole purpose is to put into effect the legislation that the Government, in their wisdom, or lack of it, put before him....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Increase of Petroleum Revenue Tax and Ending of Supplementary Petroleum Duty (26 Apr 1982)

Mr Dick Douglas: ...barrel for production costs. The range is now anything between £10,000 and £20,000 per daily barrel. The report shows that the Government's fiscal mechanism may lead to the destruction of the onshore industry that we have built up over a considerable period, particularly in Scotland and the north of England. As the right hon. Member for Greenock and Port Glasgow said, it is all very well...

Common Fisheries Policy (31 Jan 1983)

Mr Albert McQuarrie: ...50 per cent. of all scrapping grants and 25 per cent. of the cost of vessel modernisation. Now that the common fisheries policy has been agreed, the Government should give more attention to the onshore section of the industry, principally to the fish processors, who are in desperate need of assistance. It is sad that the Minister responsible for fisheries at the Scottish Office has not...

Orders of the Day — Industry and Privatisation (24 Jun 1983)

Mr John Smith: ...the altar of the ideological spasms of the present and previous Government. The pipeline should be revived and it should be run by the British Gas Corporation if the private sector is unwilling to find the money, or the Government are unwilling to support the project. Perhaps the most devious of all the tricks played by the Conservative party and its Government upon the gas industry was...

Orders of the Day — Petroleum Royalties (Relief) Bill (4 Jul 1983)

Mr Peter Walker: I am delighted to find that I am much more in agreement with my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Mr. Marlow) than I was when I was in my previous Department. Obviously, the whole reason for making the shift is that in the Government's judgment, after very careful study and analysis, it was believed that several changes were required to obtain maximum development. My hon. Friend...

Orders of the Day — Gas (25 Oct 1983)

Mr John Smith: ...and in practice, and therefore we oppose the orders. We must consider what is involved. It is axiomatic that every company which is searching for hydrocarbons on our continental shelf often finds oil and gas together. The British Gas Corporation, in the course of its very successful development of our gas resources, has become involved in oil discoveries in the fields which I have...

Orders of the Day — Petroleum Royalties (Relief) Bill (2 Nov 1983)

Alistair Burt: ...we face a shortage. I am persuaded by the Government's arguments on guaranteeing security of supply. There is no better way to prevent the discovery of oil than to make on those who might find it demands that discourage them from looking for it in the first place. The Bill's central aim is to encourage the companies to look for oil and to develop their finds. That will have benefits not...

Opposition Day: European Community (Information Technology) (21 Mar 1984)

Mr Kenneth Baker: ...80 people, but it is doing the type of work which has hitherto been done offshore, in Taiwan or Korea. It is interesting that we have reached the point at which the post-assembly of chips is done onshore. Nippon Electric plans to do post-assembly onshore, and I believe that this year or next year it will develop the manufacturing capability for the microchip—the ovens, the baking of...

Oil and Gas Reserves (Environmental Protection) (24 May 1984)

Mr John Browne: ...for attending the debate. I shall complete my speech as quickly as possible, to enable him to reply fully. Despite the early wells that were drilled in Hampshire in the early 1930s, large-scale onshore, as opposed to offshore, exploitation of oil and gas reserves is a new phenomenon in Great Britain, with major implications. I shall start by stating my position, because this is a complex...

Orders of the Day — South-West Mackerel Fishery (24 Oct 1984)

Mr John MacGregor: ...promoting British interests — almost invariably, there are conflicting interests within the United Kingdom as a whole and it is rarely possible to please everyone. A Minister has to be lucky to find himself in a position to do that on fishing matters — and so it has proved in this case. The Scottish pelagic fleet, and some others, made no secret of their view that the proposal to do...

British National Oil Corporation (13 Mar 1985)

Mr Alick Buchanan-Smith: If the hon. Gentleman reads my evidence to the Select Committee, he will find that I made it clear then, as I did in December, that the functions of BNOC are reviewed by the Government in the light of changing circumstances. Of course, there was no major change in the past week. The hon. Gentleman shows the most extraordinary ignorance of the circumstances of the market if he believes that...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (21 Mar 1985)

Mr Gerald Malone: ...because of the rate of taxation, that is regrettable. During the course of our deliberations on the Budget, either during the debate on these resolutions or at a later stage, I hope that we can find out why my right hon. Friend did not consider it to be appropriate to make any changes in taxation in order to encourage incremental developments of that kind. Incremental developments would...

Orders of the Day — Oil and Pipelines Bill: General Functions of Agency (15 Jul 1985)

Mr Alick Buchanan-Smith: ...If the hon. Gentleman wishes to follow that up he may do so, should the appropriate stage arise. As the hon. Gentleman may know, just a few weeks ago I announced under the new procedures the first onshore licensing round. Applications have been invited and that round will close towards the end of September. From then on we shall he examining the applications, and thereafter we shall be...

Channel Tunnel (10 Feb 1986)

Hon. John Silkin: ...which has persistently hung over the committee's inquiry is 'Is there a need for a fixed link?' The committee has not received any very satisfactory answers to this question. If it is trying to find the answer in the White Paper, the Select Committee can whistle for it. The nearest to an answer is to be found in paragraph 2, which says: The Government's policy for international transport...

Famine Relief in Africa: Employment (24 Jun 1986)

Dr Norman Godman: ..., the newer industries are not immune from the process of shedding labour. Already, the results of lower oil prices are coming through in employment prospects, especially in Scotland. Many of the onshore oil fabrication yards are running out of orders as new developments are being postponed. The British Indigenous Technology Group, which represents indigenous British companies working in...
