§ Mr. G. Williams
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that coal merchants in Horsmonden and other Kentish villages in that area have been unable for some weeks to supply cottagers with coal or coke, despite the fact that such cottages have no alternative means of cooking or heating water; and whether distribution in this area will be improved.
§ Mr. Shinwell
I am not aware of any special difficulty about supplies in Horsmonden and other Kentish villages but if the hon. Member knows of any individual consumer who is unable to get supplies and will let me have particulars122W I will gladly have the matter investigated. I am communicating with the hon. Member on the general supply position at the Horsmonden Depot.
