§ 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?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
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.
