asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, in view of the continued irregularity and inadequacy of domestic coal supplied to Bedford, he will arrange for the early delivery to the town of a tonnage which will enable local merchants to honour the quantities allocated to users by his local fuel over seer.

with reference to his reply [OFFICIAL REPORT, 13th March, 1947; Vol. 434, c. 1487], made the following corrections: During the four weeks ended 8th March domestic coal supplies to Bedford were 157 tons below allocation, and not 243 tons in excess as originally stated, and the special consignment of coalite sent into Bedford during that period amounted to 315 tons, not 350 tons
