My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and I meet regularly with the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA). These meetings include discussions about the oil and gas industry and more broadly, the challenges facing the supply chain. However, the OGA does not have regulatory responsibility for the shipping industry or its supply chains.
