HC Deb 22 July 1981 vol 9 c124W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement about the progress being made on drift coal mining development at Selby, Yorkshire.

Mr. John Moore

Progress on the Selby development is a matter for the National Coal Board.

I understand that the development is progressing satisfactorily towards full production of 10 million tonnes a year by the end of the present decade, in line with the board's plan.
