HC Deb 24 March 1949 vol 463 cc46-7W
Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that anthracite is unobtainable in Chulmleigh and the neighbouring district, that this fuel is urgently required for stoves to heat water to sterilise dairy equipment, and when deliveries of anthracite may be expected in the area.

Mr. Gaitskell

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Chichester (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) on 10th February. My regional officers and the local fuel overseers do not know of any dairyman or other user of boiler fuel in Chulmleigh or the neighbouring district who has an appliance unsuitable for burning coke and who cannot obtain supplies of anthracite.
