86. Mr. David Adams
asked the Secretary for Mines whether there is now a uniform charge to consumers throughout the country for transport producer-gas; 474 if so, whether he will state the figure; and, if not, whether he can give an approximate range of the prices charged?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
Yes, Sir. A uniform price of 90s. per ton delivered to the consumer anywhere in the country has been arranged for the producer-gas fuel manufactured by two firms, and discussions are proceeding with another firm with the intention of fixing the same prices for their products. This price may be increased by 7s. 6d. per ton for specially dried fuel.
