§ Mr. CAPE
asked the Secretary for Mines if he is aware that shipments abroad have taken place, from Cumberland ports, of coke and pitch; if so, what quantity of each has been sent abroad; what were the prices per ton realised; and what are the prices per ton for the same products when sold to consumers in this country?
§ Sir P. LLOYD-GREAME
Exports of coke and pitch from Cumberland ports registered during the two months January and February amounted to 1,876 tons of coke and 1,551 tons of pitch. I regret that. I am unable to give the other items of information referred to in the question.
