HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 c269W
99. Mr. Jennings

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he anticipates being in a position to increase the allocation of fuel to the Sheffield steel industries.

Sir S. Cripps

I regret that it will not be possible to increase the allocation of coal to the iron and steel industry this month As regards the allocation from the 1st June onwards, I would ask the hon. Member to await a statement on coal supplies to industry in general during the summer months.
