§ 6. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary for Mines what quantity of coal was in stock on 1st April, 1st July, and 1st October, 1931, in various parts of Great Britain?
§ Mr. ISAAC FOOT
I am informed that the stocks of coal at mines in Great Britain amounted to 5,778,000 tons on 1st April,?,359,000 tons on 1st July, and 8,050,000 tons on 1st October.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Do not these figures indicate that the quota schemes have not caused a shortage of coal or decreased working days?
