HC Deb 14 July 1903 vol 125 c568
MR. MANSFIELD (Lincolnshire, Spalding)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade, will he state the total value of coal exported from this country during 1902, and state approximately how much of that amount represents labour and carnage, and how much represents the value of the coal in the pit.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The value of coal exported from the United Kingdom in 1902 was £26,307,351, exclusive of bunker coal. The last part of the Question is of a speculative character, and cannot be answered from official statistics.
