HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c348W
Mr. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what steps he is taking to allow public access to offshore operators' oil spill contingency plans.

Dr. Mahon

Offshore operators have accepted my request that these plans should be made available, subject to the omission of their personnel's private addresses and telephone numbers for use in any oil spill emergency. Members of the public and organisations concerned wishing to see a particular plan should contact the petroleum engineering division of my Department and, by prior notice, the plan can be made available for inspection in the Aberdeen, Glasgow or London offices of that division.
