HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 cc59-60W
92. Mr. Logan

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will issue instructions to coal dealers to mark the price of graded coal so that customers will be able to make selection.

Mr. Neal

I do not consider any further instructions are necessary. The present arrangements are that schedules of grades and maximum retail prices are available for inspection in the offices of local fuel overseers and coal merchants. Moreover, the person in charge of a vehicle on which coal is being carried to retail consumers must produce on request a copy of the current schedule of prices or of the part of the schedule relating to the coal being carried. In the case of deliveries of more than 2 cwts., the merchant must supply to the consumer a delivery note specifying the price and the description of the coal as stated in the schedule.
