HC Deb 22 December 1982 vol 34 c541W
Mr. Gordon Wilson

asked the Minister for Trade if he will make a statement on the working group of officials of the Governments of the United Kingdom and Norway established in June 1982 to investigate technical barriers to United Kingdom supply and service ships operating in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea whose report was expected before the end of 1982.

Mr. Sproat

The report of the joint working group has just been submitted. As soon as I have considered it fully I intend to consult further with Mr. Skauge, the Norwegian Minister for Trade and Shipping, and will make a statement after that.
