§ Major Wilkes
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what are his intentions with regard to the reopening of Ouston E pit, which in 1939 employed 900 men daily obtaining a daily output of some 800 tons, and which has been closed since 1939.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Proposals for the re-opening of this pit have been received and are being investigated. I will communicate the result to my hon. and gallant Friend.
