§ 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.
