§ Mr. WATERSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the allocation of coal for the Derby Co-operative Society should be 1,568 tons per week, and that for the last two months, ending 28th February, they have only received an average supply of less than 900 tons per week; the reason for this deficiency; and what his intentions are to remove it?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
I am aware of the circumstances mentioned in the first part of the question, and arrangements have been made to supply emergency coal. The matter is having the special attention of the District Coal and Coke Supplies Committee responsible for this area.
