My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has had no discussions with relevant trade associations about petroleum licensing. However, interested parties, including relevant trade associations, have recently been consulted on proposals to transfer responsibility for petroleum licensing—introduced in Northern Ireland by the Petroleum (Consolidation) Act (Northern Ireland) 1929—from district councils to the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland. Responses to this consultation are currently being analysed.
