§ 53. Mr. Kelley
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps have been taken to ensure the maximum use of colliery shale in the construction of the M18 on that stretch which is adjacent to Hatfield Colliery.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
Tenders for this work were invited on the basis of a specification broadened to permit the use of colliery shale suitable for road building and I understand that the contractor intends to use substantial quantities of it.
