HC Deb 10 December 1973 vol 866 c11W
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.
