34. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will identify the words in S.R. & O., 1947, No. 718, to which paragraph 3 of the explanatory note refers.

Mr. Shinwell

The power of local fuel overseers to authorise additional coal supplies is conferred by Article 6 of the Coal Distribution Order, 1943, under which the direction mentioned by the hon. Member is given. Paragraph 3 of the explanatory note is included, as it has been in the case of similar previous directions, for the information of the public.
