§ Mr. G. Macdonald
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can state the output quota of the Holland Colliery of the White Moss Colliery Company, Lancashire, at the time the quota was sold to the Sutton Manor Colliery Company, also the amount paid for the said quota?
§ Mr. Lloyd
I am informed that the annual supply basic tonnage of the White Moss Colliery Company was 122,872 tons at the time of the transaction, but that in the process of transfer it was reduced by the executive board to 114,689 tons. I have no information as to the proportion of this which related to the Holland No. 9 Colliery, or as to the price paid.
