§ Mr. Rankin
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs, in view of the effects of a 16s. rise per ton in the price of coal on the Scottish economy, if he will refer the matter to the National Board for Prices and Incomes.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
The case for increases in coal prices by the National Coal Board, designed to yield revenue of £80 million in 1966–67, has already been investigated by the National Board for Prices and Incomes.
