HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 cc7-8W
38. Mr. Holland

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what progress has been made in the production of smokeless household coal direct from the colliery; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eadie

Some coal from Gedling Colliery, Nottinghamshire, and other collieries is marketed as "Housewarm", as the extent of the demand requires. It is washed, graded coal, approved for burning in smoke control areas in "Smoke Eater" appliances, and supplied in sealed bags.
