§ 9. Mr. CAMPBELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention is still being called to the charge of 60s. per ton for the best kitchen coal in London; and whether, in view of the hardship to small householders, he is satisfied that such a charge can be justified on the allocation of expenses between the pit-head and the private coal cellar of the householder?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Stratford (Mr. Groves), a copy of which I am sending him.
§ Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
Could the Parliamentary Secretary tell us whether the Board of Trade is now taking any action at all with regard to increased supplies of coal? Until they get supplies, they cannot reduce prices.
