§ Mr. BYRNE
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps, if any, he has taken, or intends to take, to regulate the prices and supply of coal in Ireland; and if he will take the necessary steps to safeguard an ample supply for Great Britain and Ireland by regulating the exports to other countries?
As regards price, I must refer the hon. Member to my reply to his question of 6th January on the subject. The Coal Exports Committee are fully alive to the necessity of securing that home requirements are as far as possible met.
