The severe weather of the past few weeks has greatly increased the demand for domestic coal in London, as in other areas, while at times adding much to other difficulties of delivery. In spite of the exceptionally heavy deliveries which merchants have achieved it has been hard to keep pace with the demand in certain parts of London, including Camberwell, and with my approval special measures have been taken by the House Coal Officer for supplying flat dwellers and small consumers generally. The Camberwell Borough Council, for whose co-operation in this matter I am grateful, have written to express their appreciation of what he has done.
