To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what action his Department has taken as a result of the meeting between the hon. Member for Coventry, South-East and the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Wells (Mr. Heathcoat-Amory), on the circumstances of the closure of Coventry colliery.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
Following this meeting, I conveyed the concerns of the hon. Member for Conventry South-East, and his deputation, to British Coal Enterprise. I encouraged it to continue its excellent retraining and job shop projects for those affected by the rundown of operations at Coventry colliery.
