§ Major ENTWISTLE
asked the Prime Minister if he has received a telegram from the Hull Chamber of Commerce and Shipping protesting against the total prohibition of exporting coal from the Humber; and if he will meet a deputation from Hull on the matter?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
A deputation was received on Thursday last by the Controller of Coal Mines, and a Committee was appointed to examine the representations and suggestions then made. In these circumstances, I am not prepared to receive a further deputation.
