HC Deb 25 April 1923 vol 163 c489W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he proposes to take power to restrict the export of metallurgical coke, or whether he is satisfied that this export is not delaying the recovery of the steel industry in this country?

Lieut.-Colonel LANE-FOX

My information certainly does not indicate that the foreign demand for coke is having any such adverse effect on the steel industry in this country as would warrant my asking Parliament for power to control export.
