HC Deb 30 March 1939 vol 345 c2234W
Sir R. Clarry

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will, with the object of giving additional information of interest, consider expanding the usual Quarterly Statistical Summary of Output, and of the costs of production, proceeds and profits of the coal-mining industry, so as to make further sub-divisions in respect of each coalfield separately; and whether he will now give that information in respect of the year 1938?

Captain Crookshank

There are serious objections to altering the form of the published Quarterly Summary, but I am sending a more detailed return, which involves a lengthy statistical statement, to my hon. Friend and will put copies in the Library.
