asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of the serious shortage of coal throughout the southern half of the County of Huntingdonshire; and whether he will take immediate steps to ensure that coal is made available to fulfil local needs.

No reports have been received of special difficulties in the southern half of the county and merchants' receipts against allocation in Huntingdonshire during the winter have, in fact, been slightly higher than for the country as a whole. Nevertheless, as stocks are low, some additional supplies are being despatched.
