HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 c2155
30. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the object with which the publication "Coal" is being produced by the National Coal Board; and what is the anticipated circulation.

Mr. Shinwell

I understand that the general object is to provide miners all over the country with a specialised organ of information which will enable them to keep abreast of developments in their industry under national ownership, and will also make such information available to the general public. I am informed that the circulation will be 100,000 copies.

Mr. Wilson Harris

What is the relevance, in a journal devoted to coal, of an article on a gentleman called Wragg, who seems to have something to do with horses?

Mr. Shinwell

I believe that there are even very refined cultural and intellectual organs that sometimes descend into the depths.
