§ 11. Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Minister of Power if he will publish in HANSARD a table of figures giving the percentage rise or fall in the number of pits, the number of coal face workers and the output production per man in each of the years from 1951, taking that year as being equal to 100.
§ Mr. George
I think it would be unwise to take any figure out of the context of the complete table; that could be very 917 misleading. I advise the hon. Gentleman to await publication of the table.
§ Following are the figures:
|NATIONAL COAL BOARD|
|(Indices 1951 = 100)|
|Year||Number of mines producing coal||Number of face-workers||Output per man year of face-workers|
§ NOTE: The figures for earlier years have been adjusted to latest definitions.
