asked the Minister of Fuel and Power why he is starting the new monthly magazine "Coal," in view of the restrictions imposed on the promotion of new publications and the continued cut in newsprint allocations to existing publications; and what is the annual allocation of newsprint.

No allocation of newsprint has been made for it, but the Stationery Office will supply the necessary paper, and the National Coal Board will defray the cost.
