FACT CHECK 1: How many Jobs in the UK Oil and Gas Industry?

View Full Fact report: How many jobs are supported by the UK’s Oil and Gas Industry?

As well as removing subsidy for onshore wind farms and putting decisions directly into community hands, the Energy Bill includes provisions to support North Sea Oil and Gas by setting up an Oil and Gas Authority.  Differing figures have been bandied around the House of Lords as to how many jobs they support.

Full Fact tell me they will be bringing out regular checks starting this week, so I’ve digested this one, and eagerly await the second.
