HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 c315
48. Colonel Clarke

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many acres of agricultural land held by private and national mineral workers are at present waterlogged or derelict as the result of subsidence.

Mr. T. Williams

I regret that the information is not available.

Colonel Clarke

As it is believed that considerable areas are in this state, will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to make the information available at an early date?

Mr. Williams

I scarcely think that a wide survey for this purpose would be justified.
