§ 10. Mr. George Thomas
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what quantity of coal was exported to Spain from this country during 1944; and how much has been exported during 1945.
§ Mr. Shinwell
The quantity of coal exported to Spain in the year 1944 was 10,605 tons, and in the first eight months of 1945 it was 18,876 tons. This coal was of low quality and of little use in this country. In future figures of coal exports will be shown in detail in the Trade and Navigation Accounts published quarterly.
