HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 cc15-6W
Mr. Oakes

asked the Minister of Technology if he will issue a general direction to the National Coal Board to demolish unsightly derelict colliery buildings.

Mr. Alan Williams

A general direction would not be appropriate; but if my hon. Friend has any particular site in mind I will ask the Chairman of the National Coal Board to look into the matter and to write to him.
