HC Deb 07 May 1935 vol 301 cc789-91
11. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Secretary for Mines the total quantity of coal exported from the Humber ports, respectively, during the last four months, and the f.o.b. price and the comparative figures for the same period in each of the last five years?


Particulars of the quantity of coal exported from each of the Humber ports in April, 1935, are not yet available, but I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT the information in respect of the four months ended March in each of the years 1930 to 1935.

The information is as follows:

of coal for which there is a demand in certain foreign countries; and whether he has any statement to make on the matter?


I have no evidence of shortage of coal for export from the Humber. If my hon. Friend has any case in mind, I shall be obliged if he will let me have details for investigation.
