HC Deb 11 June 1940 vol 361 c1118
34. Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has fixed any limit to the amount of coal which can be purchased during the summer months by any individual domestic consumer?

The Secretary for Mines (Mr. David Grenfell)

While the restriction on weekly deliveries of coal to individual consumers has been substantially relaxed, or removed in most areas, the retail coal trade associations have undertaken to secure an equitable distribution of the supplies reaching their areas.
