HC Deb 06 July 1979 vol 969 c740W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what proposals he has for safeguarding fuel supplies for fishing boats in the light of recent shortfalls.

Mr. Gray

Although supplies of fuel oil continue to be tight, and this has caused worries for many consumers, including those in the fishing industry, the output of the industry has not been significantly affected by any lack of oil. I shall continue to keep a close watch on the position.
