asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what was the statement of interests presented, after vesting date, to the Valuation Board on behalf of the following collieries in Lanarkshire, Bothwell Castle, Nos. 1 and 2 Pits, and Thankerton, Nos. 1, 3 and 6 Pits.
Under Section 56 of the Coal Industry Nationalisation Act, 1946, I am precluded from disclosing the details contained in the statements of interests made by individual collieries. Under S.R. & O. 1574 of 1946, colliery concerns are required to send these statements to the Minister and the National Coal Board, not to a Valuation Board.
