HC Deb 07 December 1973 vol 865 c505W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will give a general direction to the British Steel Corporation to give priority in steel supplies to offshore developments relating to oil and gas.

Mr. Tom Boardman

No. The British Steel Corporation is well aware of the importance of offshore oil and gas development and is already doing all it can to see that the necessary steel is suppiled.
