HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 c255W
48. Mr. Milne

asked the Minister of Power what future use is intended for the land, building and facilities available at Seaton Delaval workshops after they have been given up by the National Coal Board; and what consideration will be given to their use for industrial purposes designed to create new employment in the area.

Mr. Freeson

I understand that the National Coal Board are giving consideration to the renewal of their lease for the workshop premises at Seaton Delaval which expires in May, 1969. Although the former workshop activities have ceased, the Board are continuing to use the premises for a variety of other activities.
