§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Minister of Power what detailed information he has concerning the safety of the tips at Nantymoel, Cwmtillery, Risca, Bedwas, New Tredegar, Pentre and Bargoed, in view of public concern recently expressed about the danger which they present.
§ Mr. Marsh
I have been informed by the National Coal Board that the tips for which they are responsible in the areas named were examined immediately following the Aberfan disaster and are being kept under close surveillance. The Board assure me that none of them constitute a danger. With regard to the details, I have asked the Chairman of the National Coal Board to write to the hon. Member.
