HC Deb 28 May 1940 vol 361 c419
64. Sir R. Clarry

asked the Minister of Supply whether there are sufficient stocks of pit-props in the country; and whether adequate provision has been made for future supplies in order to avoid the possibility of any slowing-up of coal production owing to a shortage of pit-props?

Mr. Macmillan

The answer to the first part of the Question as to present stocks is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which was given to the hon. Member for Llanelly (Mr. J. Griffiths) on 16th April.
