HC Deb 12 May 1964 vol 695 c34W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimates he has made of the subsidy that would be required to be paid to the coal industry in present market conditions to enable coal to compete with fuel oil if the present duty imposed by the Finance Act, 1961 was rescinded.

Mr. Erroll

I have been asked to reply.

As I am not contemplating a subsidy I have not made any estimates.
