§ Mr. Donohoe
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) whether she has issued guidelines to local authorities in Scotland on the introduction of facilities for the provision of retail and fleet liquefied petroleum gas; 
(2) whether she has issued guidelines to local authorities in Scotland on the introduction of facilities for the provision of compressed natural gas. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
Facilities for the provision of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), like all hydrocarbon fuels, are licensed by local petroleum authorities (LPAs) under the Petroleum (Consolidation) Act 1928.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) together constitute the Competent Authority (CA) that enforces the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (Scotland) 2000 which apply to such facilities. Those facilities are also subject to the land-use planning system administered by local planning authorities subject to guidance issued by the Scottish Executive.
