HC Deb 07 May 1999 vol 330 c466W
Mr. Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the proportion of deep-mined coal from Wales that is supplied to electricity power stations supplying the National Grid. [82242]

Mr. Hain

This information is commercially confidential, but on the basis of the available information, I would estimate that about a quarter of Welsh deep-mine production was sold to major power producers in 1997.
