HC Deb 23 April 1951 vol 487 c18W
118. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has yet considered the 15-year plan of the National Coal Board for the development and modernisation of the industry; and if he has indicated his approval.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

In accordance with their policy of the fullest consultation with those whom they employ, the National Coal Board, before they submit their National Plan for Coal to me, have been discussing the proposals with the industry's National Consultative Council. I am expecting to receive the Board's recommendations in the early future.
