The Rev. Llywelyn Williams
asked the Paymaster-General what percentage of the coal produced in this country is used domestically, industrially, and for export purposes, respectively.
§ Sir I. Horobin
In 1957, domestic consumers used about 30 per cent. of total disposals of home-produced coal, either directly or in the form of electricity, gas, coke, etc. Industry took about 45 per cent. and exports—including ships' bunkers—about 5 per cent. The remaining 20 per cent. was used by the railways, the collieries, commercial premises, public buildings etc.
