HC Deb 07 November 1939 vol 353 c75W
Mr. E. Smith

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is paying special attention to the economic need of maintaining, and increasing where possible, the export of coal; and, in particular, whether he is satisfied that adequate steps have been taken to maintain and increase, where possible, the export of coal to Argentina, Brazil, Denmark and Sweden and the whole of the Scandinavian market?

Mr. Lloyd

Yes, Sir. My Department is working in the closest collaboration with other Departments concerned with the object that the hon. Member has in mind.
