HC Deb 13 March 1940 vol 358 c1216W
Mr. Touche

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is aware that in spite of recent assurances the coal shortage in the Reigate, Dorking and Horley districts is still very acute and that recent deliveries have been quite inadequate; and whether he can take steps to improve the position?

Mr. Lloyd

Yes, Sir, I am aware of the difficulties but I am informed that the position has improved in the last two days with the arrival of additional supplies.
