it is called Hydragas -
have no idea where you can get it, but I would ask you to contact any specialist in british cars - maybe MG, or Rover, perhaps even Jaguar. You are part of the British Leyland community - remember!
With compliments,
Sverre

its not gas at all, that's referring to the nitrogen cylinder at the top of the unit. the fluid is the same as Citroen use. make sure you give it all a good flush out before you replace the fluid, most of the time its gone all stinky.

Hi there, this is the factory replacement fluid (OEM) you will need to find or an equivalent

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hydrolastic-suspension-fluid-5-Litres-/390406446021?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item5ae6099bc5

...and a good place to start looking for somebody to carry the work out for you would be a British Leyland/Austin/Morris/Rover/MG/or even a Jaguar specialist (they may know somebody who has or may have a pump themselves)

As the Hydrolastic/Hydrogas systems were still used on the MGF's up untill around 2003, if you find somebody with a Hydrolastic/Hydrogas pump, the machines will usually do all models thru the entire range as they didnt change much over the years.

Any more help you may need on this, do get back to us and we will try our best to help

All The Best
