HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 c137W
40. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are his estimates of the numbers who will be directly employed in handling oil from the North Sea in (a) Orkney and (b) Shetland by 1985.

Mr. Younger

On present plans I am advised by the oil companies concerned that by 1985 employment at Flotta, Orkney, and Sullom Voe, Shetland, oil terminals will be 450 and 550 respectively. In addition, 210 will be engaged in the operation of the Sullom Voe Harbour.
