HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1678-9W
Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of War Transport what representations he has made to the Minister of Fuel and Power regarding the lateness of trains being attributable to poor quality coal.

Mr. Barnes

There is a shortage of the best large coal to meet all essential requirements but the hon. and gallant Member may rest assured that in the constant contact maintained between my Department and the Ministry of Fuel and Power the requirements of the railways are taken fully into account.
