The miners are definitely excluded from the Household Fuel and Lighting Order, and I shall have to consider whether it will be practicable to introduce rationing in their case. With reference to the second part of the question, I hope that it will not be necessary to import foreign coal if an appreciation of the present and probable future position disclosed yesterday results in a determination on the part of the miners to secure an improvement in the output of coal in this country.
