§ Mr. John Smith
It is not possible accurately to distinguish in advance between deliveries for inland consumption and those for other purposes. Complete details of oil stocks held other than by oil companies are not available. Stocks of oil held by oil companies in the United Kingdom are published in "Energy Trends", available in the Library of the House. Separate figures for Great Britain are not readily available. The latest provisional figures, relating to end-February, which will be published in the March issue, are 21 million metric tonnes with an estimated endurance of 91 days.386W value of 17.5 per cent. the amount of fuel required would have been about 160 million tons of coal equivalent instead of an actual burn of 91.3 million tons of coal equivalent.
