§ Mr. Evennett
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he has held any discussions with representatives of the Norwegian Government concerning the purchase of natural gas by the British Gas Corporation.
§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
My right hon. Friend and I meet the Norwegian Minister for Petroleum and Energy from time to time to discuss matters of mutual interest in relation to both oil and gas on the United Kingdom and Norwegian continental shelves. The most recent meeting was at the Anglo-Norwegian Co-ordinating Committee in Oslo on 21 November which I attended.
