Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry. – in the House of Commons on 24th November 1931.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary for Mines what quantity of coal was in stock on 1st April, 1st July, and 1st October, 1931, in various parts of Great Britain?
I am informed that the stocks of coal at mines in Great Britain amounted to 5,778,000 tons on 1st April,?,359,000 tons on 1st July, and 8,050,000 tons on 1st October.
Do not these figures indicate that the quota schemes have not caused a shortage of coal or decreased working days?
I think that the bon. Gentleman will probably draw that conclusion from the returns.
Are these figures the average or more than the average of former years?
I must have notice of that question, and I would ask the hon. Member to let me know for what years he desires the figures.
