UK Deepwater Drilling-Implications of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: Government Response to the Committee's Second Report of Session 2010-11 - Energy and Climate Change Contents

Fifth Special Report

On 6 January 2011 the Energy and Climate Change Committee published its Second Report of Session 2010-11, UK Deepwater Drilling—Implications of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill [HC 450]. On 4 March 2011 the Committee received the Government's response to the Report. We also received responses from the Falkland Islands Government, on 13 January 2011, and from Oil & Gas UK, on 8 March 2011. These are appended below.

Whilst we welcome the review of the UK's oil and gas offshore regulatory regime which will report later this year, we note that whilst this review is ongoing it has not been possible for the Government to respond fully to the Committee's recommendations and conclusions. We look forward to receiving the final report of the review in due course, with an update from the Government on its Response to our Report.
