§ 79. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has met representatives of the co-operative societies on the question of the price of coal; whether he has asked them to supply facts and figures of their trading in this connection; and when the same will be available to the House?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Shinwell)
I met representatives of the co-operative societies on Thursday last. They gave me information about the price, quality and method of distribution of domestic coal, and supplemented their oral replies to my questions by written statements. The whole of the facts and figures are now under examination in my Department. I shall be glad to make them available to the House as soon as the necessary work on them is completed.
