HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c1088
11. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power why the pillar of coal on that part of Himley Hall estate, recently acquired by the West Midland Regional Coal Board, is not to be worked.

Mr. Shinwell

I would refer the noble Lord to the reply I gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Aston (Mr. Wyatt) on 23rd January.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

In view of this decision and the decision taken in the case of Wentworth Woodhouse, will the right hon. Gentleman say whether there is one law for the powerful Socialist and another for the dispossessed peer?

Mr. Shinwell

I would not like the noble Lord to put ideas into my head.

Mr. Gallacher

There is always the workhouse.
