A side effect of Tata cutting back in Wales over the last few months has been the closing / care and maintenance of the pits that were supplying PT with coal...

Only 'pit' really moving the Valleys at the moment isn't a pit at all but the Tower opencast.

Walters put about 100 jobs at rish earlier this year at Aberpergwm and sure I heard that lay-offs came after this. Unity Mines were quoted as saying something along the lines of 'lack of demand in certain sectors of the world and in particular, steel'.

You'd think they would need coal but Tata have a habit of saying that things will come back on line and then the date comes and nothing happens. The blast furnace at Margam has been refurbished but no sign of it going online again...
