Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey has said the Government wants to 'slow that decline' in oil and gas coming from the North Sea.
Speaking to Radio 4's Today programme, he said: "We are making two announcements. First of all the Wood Review has been looking at how we can maximize the potential from the North Sea.
"Oil and gas has been falling in the North Sea by 40% in the last three years. We want to slow that decline so that we get more tax revenue and more jobs."
David Cameron is expected to claim that only the UK Government has the financial muscle to boost oil production in the North Sea.
Is it a coincide the Cabinets of both the UK and Scottish governments are meeting in Aberdeenshire on the same day? Of course not.
