HC Deb 01 February 1974 vol 868 c176W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister for Energy if he will make a statement with regard to the prospects of discovering oil in Cardigan Bay.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

Survey work in the area indicates the presence of a sedimentary basin which could contain oil or gas. The results of a well about to be drilled west of Cardigan should enable the prospects of the area to be more accurately assessed.
