To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if it is his intention to place in the Library copies of the cards which give the latest readings of suspended wellhead positions on the United Kingdom continental shelf; and if he will make a statement.

Cards providing the location of' suspended wellheads on the United Kingdom shelf are published on a half yearly basis by the fisheries Departments from data supplied by the Department of Energy and the Sea Fish Industry Authority. The cards are readily available and are distributed free of charge to fisheries organisations, local fishery offices and other interested parties at home and abroad, and I am arranging for copies to be placed in the Library.
