SZ/RS/23 - Ad hoc Group on the Coal Study of the Commission on Energy and the Environment
Ad hoc Group on the Coal Study of the Commission on Energy and the Environment
In November 1978 the Royal Society was invited by the Commission on Energy and the Environment to submit evidence to the Commission on a study of the longer term environmental implications of the extraction, production and use of coal. The ad hoc Group was set up to prepare the Society's submission to the Commission. SZ was a member of the Group, which was chaired by Dr T.M. Sugden. The Commission itself had been appointed by the Secretaries of State for Energy, Environment, Scotland, and Wales, and was chaired by Lord Flowers.
