HC Deb 28 April 1948 vol 450 cc59-60W
Mr. Scott-Elliot

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what steps are being taken to ensure that coal shipped for export is properly screened.

Mr. Gáitskell

Not all coal for export needs to be screened. But on the arrangements being made for improving the quality of coal for sale both at home and abroad I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by the Chairman of the National Coal Board on 18th March, of which I am sending him a copy.
