Alert me about debates like this

Major Lloyd George:

In cases where merchants are still delivering coal in any manner which results in wastage of petrol, vehicles or man-power, steps can be and are being taken compulsorily to transfer the registrations concerned to merchants who are in a better position to effect delivery to the consumer, though not necessarily by fixing an arbitrary radius, beyond which deliveries may not be made. These principles apply equally to large as well as to small coal merchants, and to co-operative societies.
