HC Deb 17 November 1966 vol 736 c173W
Mr. Concannon

asked the Minister of Power if he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to the electricity boards to transfer to rail transport the 9 million tons of coal that is transported by road, to electricity generating stations.

Dr. Bray

I explained in reply to my hon. Friend on 25th October it is the Generating Board's general policy to use road transport only when no other method is practicable.
