HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c76W
34. Mr. Ronnie Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he is yet in a position to issue a grant under the British Railways Act 1974, section 8, to upgrade a section of railway known as Isabella colliery, Blyth; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

My Department is still awaiting adequately detailed information from British Coal. Until that is available, I am unable to judge the financial case for grant.
