§ 4. Mr. Boyden
asked the Minister of Power if he will establish a joint committee consisting of representatives of the National Coal Board, British coal exporters and those industrialists exporting to Europe steam power plant, electricity generating equipment and other heavy plant using coal, with a view to integrating a British coal export drive with the general export drive.
§ Mr. Boyden
Does not the right hon. Gentleman think that he has some responsibility in the matter of bringing them together? In the past British coal exports were extremely important, but under the present Government they have fallen to a very small proportion. Cannot the Minister use his initiative in this matter?
