HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c100W
Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the progress of prospecting for oil in the Cardigan and Tremadoc Bays.

Mr. Ridley

Survey work in the area and drilling by the Institute of Geological Sciences have indicated that there may be prospects for hydrocarbons but their actual presence has not yet been established.
