§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he has received any application from the British National Oil Corporation to refine, treat, buy or sell petroleum under Section 2(4)(b) of the Petroleum and Submarine Pipe-Lines Act 1975; and for what purposes he has given his consent.
§ Dr. J. Dickson Mabon
I would draw to the attention of the hon. Member that his Question does not accurately summarise the section referred to. No application for consent under this section has been received.
