HC Deb 22 December 1919 vol 123 cc970-1
21. Sir R. COOPER

asked the President of the Board of Trade if coke is being exported from South Wales whilst blast furnaces in the Midlands are on the point of closing down owing to the shortage of supply of coke?


There is coke available for the blast furnaces in question, and the only difficulty is that of obtaining the necessary wagons. The Coal Controller has been in communication with certain firms in the Midlands on this point.
