HC Deb 13 October 1942 vol 383 c1511W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has any information as to the quantity of free coal supplied by colliery companies to persons not associated with the industry and the tonnage supplied without charge to persons in administrative positions not associated in the production of coal?

Major Lloyd George

Information as to the quantities involved is not available, but supplies to the persons referred to in the Question are subject to regulation under the Fuel and Lighting Registration and Distribution Order, 1942, in the same way as supplies obtained through an ordinary merchant.
