§ 55. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether, in the hope of obviating the threatened increase in the price of coal, he will call a conference of representatives of coal-owners and miners with the object of discussing whether by the exercise of the principles of co-operation and conciliation the output of coal can be increased?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I have been asked to answer this question. The increase of 6s. per ton in the price of coal came into force on the 21st July. I need hardly assure the Noble Lord that the question, of the output of coal is receiving the most urgent consideration of the Government.
