I am aware that Scottish coal is being imported into Bristol Channel ports, but the figures do not indicate any marked variation this year as compared with previous years. In 1929,. 52,115 tons were so imported, and in 1930, 40,880 tons. For the first five months of 1931, the quantity was 18,715 tons. The situation arising from the shipment of Scottish coal to South Wales is a matter within the competence of the Executive Board administering the South Wales District Coal Mines Scheme.
