HC Deb 22 February 1951 vol 484 c214W
57. Mr. Bartley

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that many acres of agricultural land have gone out of use owing to coalmining subsidence damage in the cases of farms where the tenancy agreements exclude claims against the National Coal Board for crop damages; and what steps he proposes to take to enable farmers to bring such land back into production.

Mr. T. Williams

The matter is under consideration but I cannot yet say what steps will be taken.
