To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on the anticipated production outturn for the Scottish coalfield in 1987.

Production in the Scottish coalfield over the 12 months to September 1987 was approximately 6 million tonnes. I do not expect the figure for the calendar year 1987 to be greatly different.
