§ Mr. LESLIE SCOTT
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the stocks of coal at the pits' head in Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Staffordshire have materially increased since coal for bunkering purposes from these districts has been prohibited for shipment in the Mersey ports; what the total quantity of the accumulated coal amounts to in each of the said counties; and what steps are being taken to distribute the same?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to this question on Monday last, which appears in column 327 of the OFFICIAL REPORT for 8th December.
