“1. Coking coal is required to make steel. Need I say more.
2. If the coking coal isn’t mined in the UK it will have to be imported — how on earth can that make environmental sense?
3. No steel means no renewable energy — again, how can that make environmental sense?
4. This mine will provide jobs. Again, need I say more”.
I will consider it. You have made a strong case for coal and the petition supports the creation of 500 jobs.
Can I ask, did you show the same level of support for the same reasons above for the coal industry in the 1980s and 1990s when far more than 500 jobs were at stake?
