HC Deb 04 November 1930 vol 244 c664
68. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Secretary for Mines if he can give the House any information concerning the results of his recent visit to Scandinavia with a deputation from the coal industry?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Shinwell)

The information desired by the hon. Member will be found in the report of the British Coal Delegation to Scandinavia, which was issued as a Command Paper (Cmd. 3702) on Friday.


Can the hon. Gentleman indicate any way in which the coal industry will 'benefit in the immediate future from that visit or from that report?


Yes, certainly; by adopting the recommendations of the report.


Does not the report show that the loss of those markets was largely due to the coal stoppage of 1926?
