HC Deb 19 November 1956 vol 560 c55W
74. Mr. G. Darling

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what arrangements he is making to increase imports of coal this winter, in view of the reduction of oil imports.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Coal stocks are good and it is too early to assess what effect the reduction of oil imports will have on coal import requirements; but I shall continue to keep the position under close review.
