HC Deb 04 August 1939 vol 350 c2838W
Sir D, Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the discussions regarding burning pit heaps have reached a satisfactory conclusion; and whether refuse is still being tipped on burning heaps in Scotland?

Mr. Colville

All burning pit heaps in Scotland have now been visited and surveyed and remedial measures suggested to the colliery companies, and discussions are still proceeding. I am informed that while tipping is still going on in certain cases it has been abandoned in a number of others.
