asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will, with the object of giving additional information of interest, consider expanding the usual Quarterly Statistical Summary of Output, and of the costs of production, proceeds and profits of the coal-mining industry, so as to make further sub-divisions in respect of each coalfield separately; and whether he will now give that information in respect of the year 1938?

There are serious objections to altering the form of the published Quarterly Summary, but I am sending a more detailed return, which involves a lengthy statistical statement, to my hon. Friend and will put copies in the Library.
