HC Deb 04 December 1945 vol 416 c2241W
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.
