HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 c90W
83. Colonel Hutchison

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will arrange for future Statistical Digests on Coal to include figures for coal raised and weighed.

Mr. Shinwell

The figures for coal raised and weighed are unsatisfactory in certain respects and in any event confusion would inevitably arise if output figures were published on this basis as well as on the basis of saleable coal produced. For these reasons I should not be willing to publish the raised and weighed figures in the "Statistical Digest."
