§ Mr. Benn
I visited Norway on 14th to 16th April 1977 for talks with the Norwegian Prime Minister and Minister of Industry, and on 24th April 1977 to 735W offer assistance during the Ekofisk blowout. I have nothing to add to the statements I made on 25th and 27th April following those visits—[Official Report, Vol. 930, c. 719–731 and 324–6 respectively.]
