Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps his Department has taken to ensure fuel supplies for hospitals, schools and the aged during the next two months.

Mr. Ridley

I have enlisted the help of coal merchants and the National Coal Board in an effort to minimise the risk of hardship being caused to those specially dependent on coal.
