HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 c349W
34. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he is satisfied with the level of on-shore oil-related activity within the Scottish highlands; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Projects currently approved are generating good tonnage of work for the United Kingdom fabrication and construction yards. The Scottish Highlands yards are well placed to secure a share of this business provided their bids for it are competitive.
