HC Deb 18 May 1981 vol 5 c20W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether difficulties over mineral rights affect tin operations in Cornwall; and if he will introduce legislation to resolve the problems involved.

Mr. MacGregor

I am aware that there are mineral rights difficulties in Cornwall, but legislation in the form of the Mines (Working Facilities and Support) Act 1966 already exists and I have not received convincing evidence to show that this Act is unsatisfactory.
