Peter Aldous calls for Government to represented on oil and gas taskforce

Peter Aldous calls for the Department of Energy and Climate Change to be represented on the New Anglia local enterprise partnership’s oil and gas taskforce which has been set up to support the industry in these challenging times.
 
Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): The oil and gas industry in the North sea faces very challenging times, and it is very important to the East Anglian economy. New Anglia local enterprise partnership is creating an oil and gas taskforce to support the industry in these difficult times. Will my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State arrange for her Department to be represented on the taskforce, alongside my hon. Friend the Member for Great Yarmouth (Brandon Lewis) and me?
 
Andrea Leadsom: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for mentioning this to me. I had the great pleasure of speaking in Parliament at a recent east of England oil and gas meeting. I would be delighted to meet him to discuss this further, and if appropriate, we will certainly make sure that officials attend the meeting he mentions.
