HC Deb 14 January 1977 vol 923 c594W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether, arising out of his recent meeting with the NUM leaders, he will announce the payment of aids for coke stocks similar to the payments made for stocking coal.

Mr. Eadie

No. The situation has not changed since I replied to the hon. Member's question on the 3rd December 1976.—Vol. 921, c.322.]

My hon. Friend and I have frequent meetings with the leaders of the NUM, but we have not discussed stocking aid for coke.
