HC Deb 05 February 1918 vol 101 cc2132-3W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he is aware that the poor in Dublin have to pay 3s. 10d. and 4s. per bag for coal; and when steps will be taken to reduce the price?


As I stated in reply to a question by the hon. Member on 22nd January, the price of coal in Dublin varies from 3s. 6d. to 3s. 9d. per bag. The Coal Controller is in communication with the Corporation of Dublin as to the question of fixing prices under the Retail Coal Prices Order.
