HC Deb 24 March 1949 vol 463 c47W
Mr. Titterington

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power (1) whether he will now permit separate registration with a gas works or other coke producer to any consumers who use coke;

(2) whether in order to assist consumers who only purchase coke in very small quantities he will increase the amount which can be obtained outside the restrictions.

Mr. Gaitskell

I am giving instructions that separate registration with a coke producer shall in future be allowed to any consumer on application to the local fuel overseer. I also propose, as from 1st May, to increase from 28 lb. to 56 lb. at a time the quantity which may be obtained outside the restrictions.

Forward to
