HC Deb 10 July 1974 vol 876 c520W
33. Mr. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of planning applications which have been received for sites for the construction of oil rigs in west Dunbartonshire; and if he intends to leave the decisions to the county planning authority or if he will be calling them in.

Mr. William Ross

An application for development at Portincaple was refused by the county council on 24th April. I understand that an application for development on agriculturally zoned land at Portkil Bay was submitted to the county council on 4th July. By virtue of the direction I issued on 16th May, the county council will be notifying me formally of this application and I can then consider my action.
