§ 108. Mr. P. Williams
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of the hold-up in the shipment of coal due to the coal freezing in the trucks during cold weather; what representations he has made to the British. Transport Commission on this subject; and what reply they have made thereto.
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
This is a matter for the National Coal Board and the British Transport Commission. I understand that every effort was made to overcome the difficulties that arose during the recent cold spell.
