The National Coal Board (NCB) was set up under the Coal Nationalisation Act 1946. From 1 January 1947 it had sole responsibility for managing the British coal industry. In its administrative organisation the NCB was divided geographically. The collieries of the former county of West Glamorgan lay within the South Wales Area. The NCB became British Coal in 1986 and was dissolved in 1994.
