HC Deb 06 November 1947 vol 443 c240W
60. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power why the National Coal Board propose to reverse the policy of their predecessors and work coal under the village of Shuttington, Warwickshire; what estimated subsidence and damage will be caused to the village; and if he will direct that this work shall not proceed.

Mr. Gaitskell

These are matters for the National Coal Board and I have no power to intervene.
