§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the net profits of the coal mines for each of the years between 1916 and 1923, after deducting Excess Profits Duty and coal levy?
§ Lieut.-Colonel LANE-FOX
I have been asked to reply. I regret that the information asked for by my hon. Friend is not available, and could only be obtained by such an expenditure of time and money as would not, in my view, be justified by the results to be obtained.
