HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c148W
121. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will introduce legislation enabling miners who do not wish to take all their concessionary coal to take money instead.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Today, in many districts of the coalfields, the miners can, and do, surrender part of their concessionary coal for cash, and there is no need for any change in the law.
