Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry. – in the House of Commons on 23rd May 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary for Mines the price of the best house coal in March, 1913, in March, 1914, and in March, 1922?
The retail price of Derby Brights in Central London was, in March, 1913, 27s. per ton; in March, 1914, 28s. 6d. per ton; and in March, 1922, 60s. per ton.
Does the right hon. Gentleman not think that the 1922 price is very excessive, and difficult to justify?
I should not like to give an opinion on that, but I am making investigation, and I hope to be able to let my hon. Friend know before very long how the charge is made up.
