HC Deb 12 March 1962 vol 655 c122W
90. Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Power which pits have been closed since 1st May, 1947, giving their names, date of closure and divisional location, and the capital value of each unit, as agreed between the Government and the former owners on vesting day.

Mr. Wood

The global sum of compensation for colliery assets, vested in the National Coal Board, was divided by Valuation Boards among what were known as compensation units. These comprised one or more collieries, and values of individual pits are not available. The hon. Member also asks for a great deal of other information, about which I will write to him as soon as possible.
