HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 c348W
26. Mr. Peter Bruinvels

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will estimate the proportion of fuel consumed in cars in the United Kingdom is derived from North sea oil.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

I regret that the information is not available in this form. In 1985, 55 per cent. of crude oil run through United Kingdom refineries originated from the United Kingdom continental shelf.
