asked the Minister of Power why he did not refer the National Coal Board's recent increase in coke and Phurnacite prices to the National Board for Prices and Incomes.

Mr. Freeson

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 14th May to the hon. Member for Finchley by my hon. Friend the Joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Employment and Productivity. —[Vol. 764, c.239.]

asked the Minister of Power what were the wholesale prices of grade 2 coal, gas coke, Phimax and Sunbrite in the Manchester area in April and May, 1968; and what are the proposed prices for October.

This is a matter for the producers, the National Coal Board and the North Western Gas Board. I have asked the chairmen to write to the hon. Member.
