§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy (1) if he will give an assessment of the percentage of total crude oil reserves in the British sector of the North Sea held by (a) British and Anglo-Dutch, (b) United States and Canadian, and (c) French interests;
(2) if he will give an assessment of the percentage of the total British sector North Sea oil reserves held by wholly-owned United Kingdom State corporations operating in various participations.

I hope to announce details of the shares held by various interests of the estimated reserves of oil so far dis470W covered in the United Kingdom sector of the North Sea very soon.
