asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he next expects to meet the chairman of the National Coal Board to discuss the privatisation programme for the non-mining activities of the National Coal Board.

Mr. David Hunt

The organisation of the National Coal Board's non-mining activities is a matter for the board. In the past five years the following NCB subsidiary interests have been disposed of to the private sector:

  • Redwood Corex (Services) Ltd.
  • Associated Heat Services plc.
  • J. H. Sankey & Son Ltd.

The board is currently completing disposal of its interest in Scottish Brick Corporation Ltd.
