HC Deb 07 February 1945 vol 407 c2090W
Mr. G. Hutchinson

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that coal is being sold from a dump at Ilford Hill on a fetch and carry basis at 6d. per 14 pounds; that this price is approximately equivalent to the price charged by merchants for coal delivered to the consumer's premises; and whether he will review the price charged for delivery from these dumps so as to make due allowance for the fact that the purchaser himself takes delivery.

Major Lloyd George

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for West Willesden (Mr. Viant).
