§ 68. Mr. G. NICHOLSON
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he proposes to take active steps to encourage other districts to follow the example of Lancashire in forming a selling pool?
My hon. Friend will appreciate that the Lancashire selling scheme has only been in force for a very short time and that other districts may desire to see the results of its operation before taking steps to formulate similar schemes of their own. If requested, I shall, of course, be very happy, as in the case of the Lancashire scheme, to render all possible, assistance in the preparation of such schemes.
§ Mr. TINKER
Will the hon. and gallant Member consider the desirability of calling for a report on the scheme after it has been working for 12 months in Lancashire?
