HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 c681W
Sir A. Knox

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will expedite deliveries of coke to the borough of Chep-ping Wycombe, where it has been for some weeks in short supply.

Major Lloyd George

As in many other districts, there is a shortage of coke in Chepping Wycombe because of the increased use of coke at the local gasworks, and the demands of high priority industrial undertakings. I have arranged for a Government reserve dump of coke to be available for distribution in this area, and am also arranging for the importation of coke into 'the area from other districts, subject to the availability of rail transport for this purpose.
