HC Deb 13 February 1958 vol 582 c88W
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.
