Mr. Gray

[pursuant to his reply, 16 December 1980]: I have today placed in the House Library a list of 37 conditional petroleum production licence awards for offshore blocks designated by my Department in the seventh round. Consideration of applications for the remaining blocks is continuing and a further announcement will be made in due course.
