HC Deb 23 January 1987 vol 108 cc755-6W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the sites where planning permission has been granted for opencast coal mining in Wales, but which are pending authorisation for working by (a) British Coal and (b) private companies and the acreage of each site.

However, the first priority must be to make the best use of local authority stock. In April 1986, 6,546 local authority dwellings in these four boroughs were empty; more than 2,132 had been empty for over a year.
