§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what action he proposes to take to protect householders from the dangers of imported house coal.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
There is no reason to believe that imported coal is any more dangerous than that produced in the United Kingdom, although preparation is important. Information on quality standards and on the safe burning of solid fuel is available from the Domestic Coal Consumers Council and through the approved coal merchants scheme.
