Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether, pursuant to his reply to the hon. member for Newham, North-West on 18 November, Official Report, c. 247, he will give the reasons why he will not consider making an offer of membership of the National Coal Board to Mr. Arthur Scargill.

Mr. John Moore

It would not be appropriate for me to do so.
