To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on the results of the work of the Downstream Oil Industry Forum; and what its future plan of work is. 
The Downstream Oil Industry Forum met twice in 2002 where it identified two important areas for priority attention:
- Oil products supply infrastructure
- Service to motorists in rural areas
The Forum has enabled a fruitful exchange of differing perspectives, which has enhanced understanding of these issues; discussions are continuing on issues, at a working level, which are aimed at benefiting all areas of the downstream oil industry.
