HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 c758W
15. Mrs. Ray Michie

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his Department's policy in respect of superquarries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Baldry

I believe that coastal superquarries could provide an increasing contribution to aggregates supplies in England. Their potential has been taken into account in the current review of "Mineral Planning Guidance Note 6" which is now the subject of public consultation.
