I called a meeting last night of senior colleagues and interested ministers. We discussed the question of the coal problems for two to two and a half hours. The purpose of this morning’s Cabinet meeting is to consider the conclusions we reached on that occasion and after the Cabinet meeting Mr Heseltine will announce the outcome of that in the House this afternoon.
