HC Deb 18 May 1909 vol 5 cc376-7W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can inform the House what quantity of Cardiff coal is exported annually for use by foreign navies?


Particulars of the quantity of coal exported from Cardiff to each foreign country and British possession during each quarter of 1907 and 1908 will be found in the House of Commons Paper No. 111 of the current Session, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. The total exports of coal from Cardiff in 1908 were 16,774,535 tons, but I have no means of knowing how much of this was destined for the use of foreign navies.
