HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc196-7W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what steps he proposes to take to prevent a recurrence of the coal shortage in the Stroud valleys in 1951 such as occurred in February and March, 1950.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

As I informed the House on 20th and 29th March, the whole question of the supply and quality of coal for household consumption is now under urgent consideration. I have at present nothing to add to these statements.
