asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that deliveries of coal to some small consumers in London entitled to one hundredweight per week are already several weeks behind; and whether he is taking steps to ensure that adequate coal, transport and labour are available to deal with this situation.

No consumer is entitled to a fixed quantity of coal per week but 1 am not aware of any serious delay in deliveries to small consumers in London. As regards the second part of the Question I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply I gave on 15th November to my hon. Friend the Member for South-East Southwark (Mr. Naylor).
