§ Mr. Nicholas Baker
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action he is taking to co-ordinate supplies of petrol for agriculture and related industries in North Dorset and elsewhere.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
I am naturally concerned about the implications for agriculture and food of the current fuel shortage. I am in close contact with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Energy, whose Department has speedily contacted the oil companies with regard to any specific problems which we have raised with them. Specific and urgent problems should be referred to my regional offices, which will do their best to help.
