HC Deb 26 November 1981 vol 13 c432W
Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total tax revenue received from United Kingdom oil and gas production field by field at the latest available date.

Mr. Ridley

[pursuant to his reply, 25 November 1981, c. 375]: I cannot comment on the tax position of individual taxpayers. The total tax take—including royalties—from North Sea oil and gas production up to 31 March 1981 was £7.2 billion.
