HC Deb 28 May 1976 vol 912 c411W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether the Government propose to take advantage of Community funds as recommended by the Commission for exploration on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf during the next round of licensing.

Mr. Benn

Commission proposals are still under examination in Brussels and I am not in a position to say whether the outcome would have any relation to the next round of licensing.
