HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 c114W
Colonel Clarke

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the quantities of suitable domestic fuel available of a reasonable standard of combustibility and ash content for high efficiency stoves and domestic hot water boilers where smokeless combustion is expected.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

Under the Small Anthracite Supply Scheme drawn up by the National Coal Board, appliance manufacturers and coal distributors, adequate supplies of anthracite of the appropriate sizes are made available for certain types of stoves and boilers which cannot operate efficiently on any other fuel. Other types of high efficiency stove and domestic boiler can work efficiently on coke of which there is at present no shortage.
