HC Deb 23 February 1968 vol 759 c197W
Mr. Hazell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what study he has made of the harm likely to be caused to fish or birds from escaping gas being emitted from the unsealed well in the North Sea.

Mr. Hoy

My Department's laboratories do not expect any material harm to fish, and the Nature Conservancy take a similar view so far as birds are concerned.
