HC Deb 31 January 1963 vol 670 c203W
2. Mr. Matthews

asked the Minister of Power how the pit-head price of British coal compares, quality for quality, with the price of coal mined in Western Europe.

Mr. Peyton

Information on which precise comparisons can be based is not available, but there is reason to believe that the general level of British pit-head prices is rather lower than in Western Europe.
