HC Deb 05 July 1993 vol 228 c51W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he intends to revise the 1974 "Coastal Planning Guidelines for Oil and Gas Development".

Mr. Stewart

[holding answer 2 July 1993]: In line with the undertaking given in "This Common Inheritance" (Cmd 1200), all our planning guidelines are subject to review. The 1974 coastal planning guidelines for oil and gas development have already been supplemented by the 1977 national planning guidelines for petrochemical developments and by the 1981 national planning guidelines on priorities for development planning. Further refinements will also be included in a new national planning policy guideline on business and industry, which I hope to issue shortly.
