HC Deb 20 June 1933 vol 279 cc624-5
8. Mr. TOM SMITH (for Mr. CAPE)

asked the Secretary for Mines what was the average price of heavy hydrocarbon fuel oil in this country during May and how such average price compares with that ruling during May, 1929?


I am unable to give average prices, but the hon. Member will find typical figures in the answer which I gave on 26th May to the hon. and gallant Member for Pontefract (Captain Sotheron-Estcourt). I am sending him a copy. Prices during May were 20s. 5d. per ton above the final figures quoted in the answer referred to.
