HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 cc442-3W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Minister for Energy what conclusions he has now reached about regulations requiring the presence on oil rigs of experienced radio officers and medical personnel, up to the standard of State registered nurse.

Mr. Emery

It is the intention that regulations being prepared under the Mineral Workings (Offshore Installations) Act 1971 should require offshore installations to have on board at least one qualified radio operator and one qualified in first-aid.
