HC Deb 25 January 1994 vol 236 c205W
Mr. Etherington

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is the projected total annual cost for each year from 1994 to 2000 of the Durham coalfield inland pumping stations.

Mr. Eggar

The costs of future pumping operations at these locations will depend on the use to which the land is put, the legal obligations of the owners, and any relevant decisions or policy of environmental regulatory bodies, in particular the National Rivers Authority.
