HC Deb 09 February 1978 vol 943 c629W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to sell all or any part of British National Oil Corporation oil, (a) pursuant to inter-Government bilateral trade agreements, (b) in bulk crude oil sales between Government agencies, or (c) on the open market under competitive tender.

Dr. J. Dickson Mabon

The disposal of BNOC crude oil is a matter for the Corporation, which will naturally consult my Department as appropriate.
