§ 5. Mr. CHARLES EDWARDS
asked the President of the Board of Trade 6 whether he had seen the statement made by Mr. Finlay Gibson, secretary of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Coal-owners' Association, to the effect that the coal-owners' profits were not limited to 1s. 2d. per ton; and, if so, would he at once take steps to give effect to the statements made both by himself and the Leader of the House on this point, and thus clear up this misunderstanding?
§ 55. Mr. HARTSHORN
asked the Prime Minister whether he could state when a Bill would be introduced limiting coal-owners' profits to 1s. 2d. per ton?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I will answer this question together with No. 55, to which the Prime Minister has asked me to reply. I would refer the hon. Members to my reuly to questions by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Newcastle East, on 6th November, as well as to the reply given by the Leader of the House on 29th October, to a question by the hon. Member for the Ogmore Division.
