§ MR. D. A. THOMAS (Merthyr Tydfil)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, in view of his statement that it was proposed before the next emergency coal contracts wore made to revise some of the conditions, if he can state what alterations were made in the conditions of the contracts recently entered into by the Admiralty.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. MACARTNEY,) Antrim, S.
No alterations were made in the emergency coal contracts recently entered into, as it was not considered desirable at the present juncture to vary the conditions.
§ MR. MACARTNEY
He promised to consider the point. He did so, and it was not deemed desirable to make the alteration at the present juncture.
