HC Deb 03 December 1920 vol 135 cc1615-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that a very large number of the poorer classes in the Abingdon district have had no coal at all for three weeks, and have been obliged to use what wood could be obtained; and whether he will take immediate steps to remedy this deficiency?


I am aware of the importance of the hosiery latch needle industry, and can only repeat that it is intended to introduce a Measure dealing with key industries and dumping, as the first Measure next Session.
