HC Deb 27 January 1977 vol 924 c740W
Mr. Fitch

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much has been paid in compensation for damage from mining subsidence since the Coal Mining (Subsidence) Act came into force in July 1957.

Mr. Eadie

I am advised by the National Coal Board that between July 1957—when the Coal Mining (Subsidence) Act 1957 came into force—and March 1976, the latest date for which figures are available, the total cost to the Board of compensation for and repairs to mining subsidence damage was some £95 million.
