HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c334W
55. Mr. Trew

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will institute a review of the planning conditions for restoration of the land attached to mineral extraction, in order to restrict the spread of unrecorded dereliction of land.

Mr. Peter Walker

The local authority associations have been asked to provide my Department with evidence of difficulties over the planning control of mineral working. I shall carefully examine any evidence received.
