Peter Aldous asks Government to consider incentives for oil and gas exploration

7th January 2016

Peter Aldous asked the Government to consider incentives for exploration in the old and gas industry which is vital to the UK economy.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): I am grateful to the hon. Member for Livingston (Hannah Bardell) for raising this question and to the Minister for her reply. I acknowledge the work that the Government have done in the sector, but will the Minister give me her assurance that in the lead-up to the Budget in March, she will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that this vital industry secures the support that it needs at this difficult time?

Andrea Leadsom: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who has focused so much on this important sector. I assure him that we are totally focused on looking at what more can be done in all areas to support this vital UK sector.
