HC Deb 03 December 1920 vol 135 c1616W

While there is a general shortage of coal for domestic purposes in the Abingdon district, owing to the cessation of output at the mines during the recent strike and the consequent lifting of reserve stocks, I am not aware of any such severe shortage as is indicated by the question. One hundred and fifty tons in excess of the ordinary supplies has, however, been sent to the Abingdon area this week, and the district is receiving special attention.
