HC Deb 17 February 1993 vol 219 c256W
26. Mr. Corbyn

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on his latest proposals regarding coal mine closures.

Mr. Heseltine

We are engaged in a wide-ranging review of the prospects for 21 of the pits proposed for closure by British Coal, in the context of the Government's energy policy. We will shortly be publishing a White Paper setting out the results of that review, which will then be debated by the House.
