§ 63. Mr. Hilton
asked the Minister of Power whether he will ask the National Coal Board, the coal supply trade and the railways, in their discussions on future arrangements for the supply of house coal, to consider the shortages of coal during the recent severe weather in areas, such as Norfolk, remote from coal-mining areas.
§ Mr. Peyton
The National Coal Board assures me that its discussions with the railways, and the trade will take into account the difficulties that have occurred this winter in these areas, as well as others.
