HC Deb 08 December 1964 vol 703 c181W
Mr. Derek Page

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs to what extent, in preparing a regional plan for the Norfolk area, he proposes to take account of the development of installations for processing gas and oil from North Sea deposits.

Mr. William Rodgers

Until more is known about the commercial prospects for these deposits, no one can say where the processing plant should be sited. Naturally, if the exploration is successful it will be taken into account in drawing up regional plans.
