HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c148W
118. Mr. Maudling

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power by how many tons he expects his allocations of coal and coke to industrial users from 1st May to 1st November, 1951, to exceed deliveries during the comparable period in 1950.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

The principles upon which the allocations of coal to industry will be made this summer will be those stated by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary on Monday last in answer to Questions by the hon. Member and the hon. Member for Woking (Mr. Watkinson). It is not yet possible to state what those allocations will amount to in terms of tonnage.
