HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 c625W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on his recent visit to Merseyside.

Mr. Benn

On 11th November I visited Parkside Colliery, where I went underground and also met members of the Colliery Consultative Committee, together with area NCB and area union officials. It was one of a number of further visits to pits which I plan to make.
