HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 cc837-8W
Mr. Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what representations he has received to site the National Drill Training Centre in Aberdeen.

Mr. John Smith

The Lord Provost of Aberdeen wrote to my right hon. Friend in July to urge that the drilling technology training centre should be established on a permanent site in Aberdeen after a pilot stage at Livingston. In his reply he said that the Petroleum Industry Training Board, which is responsible for the establishment of this centre, had reached no decision on a permanent site and would be very willing to consider any specific proposals.
