asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will authorise seismic monitoring before the extraction of coal from the Vale of Belvoir, so that local residents in presenting their claims at a later date will have a pattern of seismic activity both before and after the extraction of coal.

My authorisation is not required for seismic monitoring, but I understand that in certain circumstances planning permission might be required under the town and country planning Acts.
