HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 cc26-7W
15. Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has received any representations from Gwent county council concerning the consequences for local government expenditure and revenue of the dispute in the mining industry.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The county council has written to me asking for mediation in the coal miners strike, though its letter did not specifically refer to local government expenditure.
