HC Deb 05 February 1973 vol 850 c37W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the powers of local planning authorities to insist that oil storage installations should be protected against leakage by bund walls.

Mr. Graham Page

Where protection of this kind is not required under the licensing provisions of the Petroleum (Consolidation) Act 1928, it is open to planning authorities to impose conditions requiring the provision of a bund or other protection whenever they grant planning permission for such installations.
