HC Deb 13 March 1947 vol 434 c219W
17. Mr. Anthony Nutting

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will consider listing separately the figures for production of surface outcrop coal in future statistics of coal production, in view of the fact that such coal contains a low calorific value.

Mr. Shinwell

Figures for opencast coal production are already shown separately both in the Monthly Statistical Digest issued by the Central Statistical Office (Table 28) and in the monthly Statistical Statement issued by this Department to the Press.
