HC Deb 21 November 1960 vol 630 cc746-7
14. Mr. Whitlock

asked the Minister of Power when he intends to act upon the recommendations of the Report of the Domestic Coal Consumers' Council, that in the interests of the consumer, coal be sold in accordance with the National Coal Board grouping and that coke be stored under cover to prevent its being sold with an excessive moisture content.

Mr. Wood

I have told the trade that the best way of dealing with these matters is for the trade itself to work out a scheme in co-operation with the producers, and I hope to receive proposals from them accordingly.
