Motion text

That this House considers that the colliery closures announced on 13th October should not proceed and that reconsideration should be given to the hasty, excessive and costly development of gas-fired electricity generation, to the risk of energy dependence and to the effect which the inevitably increased reliance upon imported fuel will have on the national economy; and regrets that, yet again, decisions have been made which owe more to short-sighted and flawed calculations than to common sense.
