§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what applications have been made, and by whom, to survey and prospect the area of the Norfolk Broads to ascertain whether or not there is a supply of oil within the region.
§ Mr. Gray
Most of the area to the north of a line joining Norwich and Great Yarmouth is covered by two exploration licences, of which one is operated by Quintana Anglia Inc. and the other by Cluff Oil plc. I have received no applications for licences for the remainder of the area of the Norfolk Broads.
