HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c836
12. Mr. Butcher

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether in view of the satisfactory steps which have been taken to restore to agricultural use land from which open cast coal has been taken, he will take steps to see that land from which brick clay and ironstone has been removed shall be similarly levelled and re-seeded.

The Minister of Town and Country Planning (Mr. W. S. Morrison)

I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 10 of the statement made on 30th November, 1943, in answer to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Penryn and Falmouth (Major Petherick), of which I am sending him a copy and to which I have at present nothing to add.

13. Mr. Molson

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether his attention has been drawn to the proposal to erect a cement factory at Cauldon How, North Staffordshire, adjacent to the national park at Dovedale; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I am in communication with the Interim Development Authority on this matter and I can assure my hon. Friend that no such development will take place without full consideration of all the relevant factors.
