HC Deb 17 October 1916 vol 86 cc397-8W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has been in consultation with any responsible authority respecting the supply of coal to the poor of Dublin; whether he is aware that, owing to the increase in price, it will be necessary to provide a fund to avert a fuel famine; and whether he can state what measures the Government propose taking to avert such a calamity?


I am in communication with the Irish Local Government Board and the Board of Trade on this subject.
