asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is satisfied that farmers whose land is affected by opencast coalmining are able to obtain adequate insurance cover for their stocks.

I am not aware at any difficulties in obtaining adequate insurance cover, but I am making inquiries and will let the hon. and gallant Member know the results.

Will the Minister consult the Lancashire branch of the National Farmers' Union?
