104. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that the transfer of Aberdeen fishing vessels from coal burning to oil burning increasingly necessitates increased sup plies to and storage of oil in Aberdeen; and what steps he is taking to make pro vision for this.

Mr. Renton

The provision of supplies and storage facilities in any particular area is entirely a matter for the oil companies. I am informed that the facilities at Aberdeen are more than sufficient to meet all likely demands.
