HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 c249W
Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will give further details of how his estimate of £695,000 on operation and maintenance costs of oil storage installations in 1956–57 will be spent.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Part of the expenditure is for the repair and renewal of facilities built by the Government to safeguard the distribution of oil in an emergency; the remainder covers routine maintenance and operational costs.
