HC Deb 26 January 1953 vol 510 cc73-4W
67. Mr. G. Brown

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has considered the representations made to his Department by the Association of Urban District Councils on Mining Subsidence: what reply he has given; and whether he will accede to their request to receive a deputation on the subject.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

Yes, I have considered these representations. The Association have been informed that I do not, in present circumstances, propose further legislation on this matter. They have been invited and have agreed to send me a memorandum with fresh evidence, which I shall most carefully consider.
