asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that there is a shortage of beer in the Castleford-Kippax - Garforth - Micklefield-Swillington area; what is the reason for the shortage; and what steps it is proposed to take to enable brewery companies to provide these towns and other mining communities in the district with as much beer as is received in other areas.

Yes, Sir. shortage of beer has been due to restricted coal allocations. The recent raising of the fuel allocation to the industry should ensure better supplies of beer to the areas in question.
