HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 162 c299W

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?


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.
