asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the maximum permitted quantity of coal which a householder may purchase in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and Truro, in a year; and how much it would cost each such householder, assuming both purchases were of group four coal of the same quality.
50 and 34 cwts. respectively; 242s. 1d. and 242s. 11d. respectively, assuming that full advantage of summer prices was taken in each case.
Do I understand that the total cost is about the same at both places although the cost per ton at Newcastle is less?
