HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 cc40-1W
Mr. Rowlands

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, he is now in a position to make a statement with reference to the control of the Point of Ayr colliery.

Major Lloyd George

I have recently reviewed the necessity for continuing in force the Point of Ayr Collieries, Ltd., Control Order, 1943. I am now satisfied that the circumstances which led me to impose the Control no longer apply, and I have, therefore, decided to revoke the Order. The revocation took effect as and from yesterday.
