asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that there have been no supplies of anthracite singles at Lockerbie, Dumfriesshire, for the last six months; and what action he is taking to remedy this situation.

Although there was some delay in the arrival of anthracite singles ordered by the merchant in March supplies have been available in Lockerbie to meet the reasonable needs of consumers throughout the winter. No complaint of shortage has been received by the local fuel overseer but if the hon. Member knows of any consumer who has an appliance which will only burn anthracite and who is unable to obtain supplies I will have further inquiries made.
