§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement about the information conveyed by the Government to the people attending the Government-sponsored conference on North Sea oil which was held on 14th February.367W
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
The meeting was arranged to enable the various local authorities and other organisations concerned to get a comprehensive view of probable developments largely in the light of information provided by the oil companies. A record of the meeting is being prepared, and I will arrange to put copies in the Library.
