§ 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.
