HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 cc209-10W
Mr. Ogden

asked the Minister of Technology if he is satisfied with the operation of the present legislation controlling operations on and from oil rigs under British control; and if he will make a statement.

Sir J. Eden

All offshore petroleum operations are subject to the Petroleum Production Regulations of 1964 and 1966. I am satisfied that a proper control is being exercised in this way. The need for specific safety legislation is being considered.
