    North Sea Exploration needs "urgent support" but this was what was going to make Scotland rich after independence.

    Yes, bit of a cheek!

    Osborne has done a lot in terms of tax reduction, and he should continue to make it attractive for companies to operate.

    North Sea oil is an asset, that may be a loss leader now, but we should encourage exploration. We must not let the industry rust away, because in the future the price will definitely go up.

    Or continue to explore the oil reserves on land down south.
