HC Deb 17 March 1925 vol 181 cc2089-90W
Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary for Mines whether, in view of the fact that coals of a secondary quality, costing about 20s. per ton at the pit head, are being retailed in London at 47s. to 60s. per ton, he can see his way to promote legislation to deal with this matter?

Colonel LANE-FOX

I shall be glad if the hon. and gallant Member will await the statement that I propose to make in the course of the debate next week, on the Motion of which the hon. and gallant Member for South Hackney (Captain Garro-Jones) has given notice.
