HC Deb 06 March 1962 vol 655 c188
18. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what steps he has taken to resolve the difficulties that have arisen regarding the siting of a new oil refinery near Pwllcrochan, Pembrokeshire.

Dr. Hill

I have discussed the difficulties with my colleagues and the consequential talks now taking place between the company and other interested parties are aimed at resolving them.

Mr. Donnelly

Am I to understand from that Answer that the Government have decided in principle that this is a desirable development, subject, of course, to proper details being worked out and proper financial arrangements, or are they still considering the principle?

Dr. Hill

It is clearly a most desirable development. In view of the discussions, I am anxious not to go beyond that now.
