Mr. H. Wilson
asked the Minister of Power if he is yet in a position to state the 1959 calendar year figures for the consumption of coal by gasworks, electricity, railways, industry, coke ovens, and the domestic market on a basis comparable to those given for previous years in Table 41 of his Department's Statistical Digest for 1958.162W

The figures are as follows:
1959 COAL CONSUMPTION Million tons Gasworks 22.5 Electricity works 46.0 Railways 9.5 Industry: Iron and steel 4.0 Engineering and other metal trades 2.7 Other industry 24.8 Coke ovens 25.7 Domestic: House coal 27.1 Anthracite and dry steam coal 1.5 Miners' coal 5.0
The 1958 figure for miner's coal has been amended to 5.3 million tons.
