§ 57. Mr. Pardoe
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list, from information available to him, the average well-head price paid for the crude oil now in stock in the United Kingdom, and the average well-head price paid for crude oil due for shipment to the United Kingdom in November and December; and if he will estimate the retail price including tax of three-star petrol derived from crude oil bought at the average current well-head price.
§ Mr. Tom Boardman
The information requested on the average well-head price is not readily available. The allocation of current crude costs to particular products is for the oil companies.
