§ 38. Mr. Palmer
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what steps he is taking to ensure that coal stocks at power stations are adequate to meet anticipated demands during the coming winter.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
There are ample supplies of the grades of coal mainly used by the power stations.
§ Mr. Palmer
While appreciating the good sense, in general, of that answer, may I ask whether it is not a fact that power station stocks should be adequate in relation to the possible transport difficulties of those stations during the winter months? Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied on that point?
