§ 20. Mr. HARCOURT JOHNSTONE
asked the President of the Board of Trade the figures of the importation of 1311 British bituminous coals into the Dominion of Canada month by month during the last four years, to the latest date available?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Dr. Burgin)
Imports into Canada of bituminous coal consigned from the United Kingdom during the years 1929 to 1932 amounted to 102,000, 133,000, 99,000 and 296,000 tons respectively. I am sending the hon. Member a statement showing these imports, month by month, from January, 1929, to April, 1933.
§ 24. Mr. JOHNSTONE
asked the (President of the Board of Trade the price at which British bituminous coals have been sold in the Dominion of Canada during the last four years, and the corresponding figure for coal sold in the Dominion of Canada and produced in Nova Scotia?
§ Dr. BURGIN
I regret that I have no information as to the prices at which United Kingdom bituminous coals have been sold in Canada during the last four years. According to the "Monthly Review of Business Statistics" issued by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, Nova Scotia run-of-mine bituminous coal was quoted at $6 per short ton from January, 1929, to September, 1932, and at $5.25 per short ton from October, 1932, to April, 1933. These prices would be f.o.t. at the mine.
