HC Deb 23 June 1982 vol 26 c138W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in the course of his departmental working parties with the National Coal Board regarding the new planning application for a coal mine at Asfordby, Leicestershire, it has been established what would be the additional cost per tonne of remote disposal of spoil by train to clay pits in Bedfordshire; and, if so, with what financial outcome.

Mr. Giles Shaw

I shall answer this question shortly.
