HC Deb 12 March 1981 vol 1000 c376W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will set up a public inquiry into the environmental aspects of the proposal to opencast coal mine in the area near Dordon in North Warwickshire.

Mr. John Moore

There are a number of statutory objections to the Orchard opencast site, North Warwickshire. If these are not withdrawn the statute requires that a public inquiry be held.
