HC Deb 06 July 1965 vol 715 c1339
24. Mr. Gibson-Watt

asked the Minister of Power what proposals for new opencast coal mining in the West Midlands have now been put to him; if he will give details of the proposals and of his decisions on them.

Mr. John Morris

The National Coal Board's application for an authorisation to work the Orchard St. Leonards site in Warwickshire is the only one at present before my right hon. Friend. Objections have been lodged and arrangements have been made to hold a public inquiry, which opens today.
