§ 65. Mr. James Griffiths
asked the Secretary for Mines what steps are being taken to promote the expansion of our coal export trade in the South American countries; and whether it is proposed to provide special assistance to the export trade in this and other areas?
§ Mr. Grenfell
The Government are fully alive to the importance of maintaining and expanding coal exports to the greatest possible extent; and they are in consultation with the coal industry as to the methods by which this could be achieved.
