asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the tonnage of coal exported from this country to all destinations during 1939, 1940, 1941 and 1942?

It would not be in the public interest to give this information, but I can assure my hon. Friend that we are not exporting any more than is absolutely necessary for the prosecution of the war.

Does the right hon. and gallant Gentleman think it would be better if I consulted him in future as to what sort of Question I should put down?
