HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 cc139-40W
Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is the investment programme for the next 10 years to improve the infrastructure to raise coal pro- duction and consumption as planned at the Venice summit; and how it has altered since the last programme was announced.

Mr. John Moore

Investment in coal is already proceeding at record levels as part of the Government's strategy for coal, which is in accord with the declaration of the Venice summit.
