The revised position of the U.K. coal industry in the wake of the oil crisis has led to the development of the 1974 Plan for Coal, which involves the creation of new mining capacity, both by investment schemes at existing collieries and by sinking large new mines. The implications of these plans are reviewed in relation to the energy market and to regional and environmental considerations, to planning processes, and to membership of the European Coal and Steel Community.
