§ 40. Sir H. Williams
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how the price of coal exported to the Argentine compares with similar coal sold inland
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
I do not fix or control the export prices charged by the National Coal Board, and I do not think it desirable to ask the Board to disclose the prices they receive for their foreign sales.
§ Sir H. Williams
As the Board of Trade returns show the quantity exported and the f.o.b. price, would it be too difficult for the right hon. Gentleman to ascertain the information?
§ Mr. W. Fletcher
But are not these prices fixed in consultation with the right hon. Gentleman in exactly the same way as he stated just now home prices are fixed?
