§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what quantities of (a) butane liquid petroleum gas, and (b) propane liquid petroleum gas were produced, delivered, and shipped into the United Kingdom during the past 12 months to the latest convenient date; and of the totals, what quantities of each were made available for (i) use by private industry as an energy source, (ii) non-energy use, (iii) nationalised industries and (iv) export.
§ Mr. Gray
The information for the 12 months ended 30 November 1979 is as follows:
Butane (thousand tonnes) Propane (thousand tonnes) Production including indigenous receipts 1,204 873 Arrivals 93 41 Inland deliveries: Energy use 851 516 Non-energy use 47 45 Shipments 378 361
I regret that a split of deliveries between private industry and nationalised industries is not available. Differences between supply and disposals reflect refinery use and stock change.
