§ 10. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade the coal equivalent of the fuel oil imported into 2744 this country during the coal dispute and during the corresponding period of last year?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
Approximately 277 million gallons (about 1·1 million tons) of fuel oil were registered as imported into Great Britain and Northern Ireland during the period from 1st May to 30th November, 1926, inclusive, compared with 198 million gallons (about 0.79 million tons) in the corresponding period of 1925.
With regard to coal-equivalents, I would refer to the answer that I gave my hon. Friend on 24th March last year, a copy of which I am sending him.
