HC Deb 26 June 1989 vol 155 c360W
Mr. Thurnham

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what representations he has received about reserves of oil and gas in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Peter Morrison

My Department's latest estimates of oil and gas reserves were given in my right hon. Friend's report on the development of the oil and gas resources of the United Kingdom ("The Brown Book") published in April. I have received no representations about the estimates, other than views expressed by the companies concerned in the course of their preparation.
