HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c2028W
Mr. Sexton

asked the Secretary for Mines what progress has been made in the removal of water from the flooded coalfield in south-west Durham?

Mr. Lloyd

I have at present nothing to add to the reply which I gave on 25th April to the hon. Member for Houghton-le-Spring (Mr. W. Joseph Stewart) with regard to the promotion of a scheme for draining the waterlogged coal measures in south-west Durham.
