HC Deb 17 November 1960 vol 630 c67W
85. Mr. R. Edwards

asked the Minister of Power whether he is aware that in many districts there is short supply of household coal; and if he will give a general direction to the National Coal Board to ensure adequate supplies of coal during the winter months.

Mr. George

Because of exceptionally high sales during the summer, merchants began the coal winter with lower stocks than usual. The National Coal Board is already taking special steps to meet requirements.
