HC Deb 20 March 1972 vol 833 c236W
78. Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will institute an inquiry into the present state and potential of the Welsh slate industry, particularly with a view to utilisation of slate waste for road-surfacing and other purposes and the consequent clearance of sites for housing, industrial and recreational purposes.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The problems and potential of the industry are already sufficiently well understood and I do not think that an inquiry would be helpful.
