HC Deb 17 July 1925 vol 186 c1706W
Captain A. EVANS

asked the Secretary for Mines if his attention has been drawn to the rise in the price of household coal at Cardiff by 2s. 6d. per ton; and whether he has any statement to make on the matter?

Colonel LANE-FOX

I understand that the increase in price referred to represents the restoration of an equivalent reduction made about a month ago, when the demand for coal was much less than it is at present.
