HC Deb 28 April 1936 vol 311 c714

asked the Secretary for Mines the quantity of coal exported from the Bristol Channel ports, respectively, during the 12 months ended 31st March, 1939, 1931, 1934, 1935, and 1936; and the countries to which the coal was exported?


I will with the hon. Member's permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT figures showing the total exports from the Bristol Channel ports during the years specified, and I will send to him the further details he asks for in a statistical statement which is too long to justify printing it in the OFFICIAL REPORT, and will arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House.

Following are the figures:

Coal shipped abroad, as cargo, from the Bristol Channel Ports.
Year ended 31st March. Tons.
1930 25,641,519
