To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions he has had with representatives of the Scottish oil and gas industry on how that industry can benefit from the industrial strategy.
17 November 2017
I visited Aberdeen in late August and had detailed discussions with senior representatives from the oil and gas sector at the MER UK Forum and at the Oil & Gas UK Joint Council which included discussions on the modern industrial strategy. I also had a round-table discussion on the topic of the industrial strategy with the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce. BEIS officials remain in close contact with oil and gas industry representatives.
