Proposal To Opencast In Greenbelt Land At Howbrook, Barnsley

EDM number 1510 in 1993-94, proposed by Michael Clapham on 13/07/1994.

That this House expresses its opposition to the proposal by Cobex Ltd. for an opencast mine in the Green Belt, on land off Westwood New Road, Howbrook in the constituency of Barnsley West and Penistone because it would despoil an area of landscape value and considerable interest with an endearing character when the generating and domestic markets can be adequately provided for by deep mined capacity; and calls for Government action to reduce opencast production to tick over level. (Relevant registered interest declared)

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
