§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will publish a Keeling schedule bringing up to date part II of schedule 2 and part II of schedule 3 to the Petroleum and Submarine Pipe-lines Act 1975 in the form these schedules would have when schedule 2 of the Oil and Gas (Enterprise) Bill has been enacted; and if he will issue consolidated regulations similarly bringing up to date schedules 4 and 5 to the Petroleum (Production) Regulations 1976 as proposed to be amended by the Oil and Gas (Enterprise) Bill.
§ Mr. Gray
[pursuant to his reply, 18 January 1982, c. 9]: Consolidated Petroleum (Production) Regulations were laid before Parliament on 22 July and will come into operation on 16 August. These regulations will govern the arrangements for the eighth round of offshore production licensing as well as future landward licences.
