§ 95. Mr. Erroll
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what his policy is regarding the development of salvaging sea coal from beaches adjacent to coalfields; and what contribution it can be expected to make towards the total output of coal in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
The salvaging of coal from beaches cannot be expected to increase our coal supplies substantially and is best left as at present to local initiative unhampered by public control.
