HC Deb 04 July 1955 vol 543 c754
23. Mr. Farey-Jones

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how much additional coal has been allocated to the carbonising industries for the next two years, compared with 1954; and how much additional coke is expected to be produced thereby.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

Allocations are on a six-monthly basis, and for this summer the carbonising industries have been allocated 3 million tons more than dispatches in the summer of last year: this should produce nearly 1½ million tons more coke.
