asked the Secretary for Mines if he can give the House any information concerning the results of his recent visit to Scandinavia with a deputation from the coal industry?

The information desired by the hon. Member will be found in the report of the British Coal Delegation to Scandinavia, which was issued as a Command Paper (Cmd. 3702) on Friday.

Can the hon. Gentleman indicate any way in which the coal industry will 'benefit in the immediate future from that visit or from that report?

Does not the report show that the loss of those markets was largely due to the coal stoppage of 1926?
