HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 c23W
Mr. Moate

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what steps he is taking to ensure continuity of supply of heavy fuel oil to industrial users and in particular to the paper and board industry.

Mr. Gray

The oil supply situation generally continues to be tight, and industrial users, like other consumers, may not at present be able to get all the oil product they would like. I have no evidence that the paper and board industry is suffering bigger cuts than other users of heavy fuel oil, but if my hon. Friend has some specific case in mind perhaps he will write to me on the matter.
