HC Deb 14 July 1936 vol 314 c1891W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that there is no adequate protection for the purchasers of small amounts of coke and fuel other than coal; and whether he is prepared to take steps to prevent the possibility of unfair trading in this respect?


In a number of areas the sale of coke and other fuels derived from coal is regulated under local acts. The question of proposing general legislation on the subject has been noted for consideration at a convenient opportunity.
