HC Deb 07 June 1946 vol 423 c400W
45. Mr. D. J. Williams

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what plans he has for the working of outcrop coal in the anthracite area of South Wales coalfield.

Mr. Shinwell

Prospecting has revealed that considerable quantities of workable coal exist in the locality of the recently developed opencast workings in the anthracite district of South Wales and it is my intention to continue its extraction long as there is need for doing so.
