HC Deb 25 February 1930 vol 235 c2082W
Major OWEN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the percentage of unemployed in Carnarvonshire, he will recommend the reduction of the royalties claimed by the Crown in respect of the slate quarries situated on Crown lands so as to enable quarries now closed to be re-opened?


The Commissioners of Crown Lands will be glad to consider any proposals made to them for re-opening slate quarries now closed, and the question of royalties will be a matter for negotiation with the applicants.
