HC Deb 23 March 1982 vol 20 c296W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many overland pipelines have been built in the United Kingdom under the provisions of the Pipelines Act 1962; and what types of industries are using the legislative provision.

Mr. Gray

I have been asked to reply.

There is a total of 53 cross country pipelines and in excess of 1,000 local pipelines constructed under the provisions of the Pipe-lines Act 1962. The cross country pipelines comprise 32 pipelines built under section 1 of the Act and 21 pipelines built under section 6.

A wide cross—section of industries have used the legislative procedures of the Act including companies concerned with clay, cement, coal, industrial gases, oil refinery, petrochemicals and rubber.
