HC Deb 05 July 1922 vol 156 c370

asked the Secretary for Mines whether, seeing that the coal merchants of London have reduced the price by 9s. per ton, what reduction has been secured by the said merchants from the colliery companies who supply them; the date on which this reduced contract was entered into; and the names of the colliery companies concerned?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Bridgeman)

I have already given to the House all the information in my possession on this subject, and am not in a position to add to the answer that I gave to the hon. Member when he asked me this question on Monday last.
