Balance In The Consideration Of Opencasting

EDM number 368 in 1993-94, proposed by John Gunnell on 18/01/1994.

That this House, regarding honesty as a basic value, is appalled at Government double-talk on the energy needs of the nation, citing these as justification for giving private mining companies carte-blanche to opencast while ignoring or denying their needs in deciding the closure of pits; recognises that this hypocrisy reflects the total disregard of the rights and concerns of local communities and environmental factors should they threaten private profits; and calls for revised minerals planning guidance for local authorities giving them the advice to respond fully to the concerns of those who live near to or use any site proposed for opencasting to provide the necessary balance to the measures proposed in the Coal Industry Bill should they become law.

This motion has been signed by a total of 102 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
