Venezuelan Discounted Oil (Environmental Impact)

Volume 447: debated on Monday 5 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment he has made of the potential environmental impact of the supply of discounted oil to London by Venezuela; and if he will make a statement. (73599)

We are not aware of any firm commitment by the Government of Venezuela to supply oil or oil products at discounted rates to the UK. In the absence of this and any specific details I am unable to speculate on the potential environmental implications of this proposal.
