HC Deb 12 December 1967 vol 756 cc194-5
32. Mr. Ogden

asked the Minister of Power what action he has taken to make the intentions of the Government White Paper on Fuel Policy known to those employed in the British coal industry; and what further action he intends to take.

Mr. Marsh

I have arranged for copies of the pamphlet "Fuel for the Future" to be made available at collieries and I have also sent a personal message to miners outlining what the Government were proposing to do for the coal industry and the miners. I intend to visit various parts of the country where there is a particular interest in this subject.

Mr. Ogden

Will my right hon. Friend accept an invitation to visit the Lancashire coalfield, where we will give him not only a warm but an understanding welcome?

Mr. Marsh

Perhaps I may seek an opportunity to discuss with my hon. Friend exactly what he meant by "warm".
