HC Deb 07 March 1963 vol 673 c83W
64. Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Power if he will state the number of applications lodged with his Department under Section 1 of the Pipe-lines Act, 1962, and the number of notifications received under Section 2 of the Act, specifying in the latter case the general classification of industries from which notifications have been received and, if practicable, an analysis of the length of lines covered.

Mr. Wood

I have received two applications under Section 1 of the Act. Seven notifications have been received under Section 2 from the cement, chemicals, china clay, industrial gases and petroleum industries, and from a harbour authority. Two of the pipelines to be constructed are shorter than a hundred yards. The other five vary between a mile and eight miles.
