HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c211W
89. Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Power, in view of the fact that undistributed stocks of coal are greater than they were 12 months ago and export tonnages are substantially less, if he will give a general direction to the National Coal Board to open up new markets abroad for British coal.

Mr. Frederick Lee

The export of coal is a commercial matter for the National Coal Board, who are in any case fully aware of the need to promote exports wherever there are satisfactory opportunities.
