HC Deb 06 July 1979 vol 969 cc741-2W
Dr. John Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what action he has taken to ensure adequate fuel supplies for the fishing industry in White-haven and elsewhere in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gray

Although supplies of fuel oil are tight, and this has caused wor- ries for many consumers, I know of no special difficulties in the case of White-haven fishermen. If the hon. Member has some specific case in mind, perhaps he will write to me on the matter.
