asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will take steps to improve the supply of coal to Slough.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Fuel and Power
(Mr. L. W. Joynson-Hicks)

If the hon. Member would let me have particulars of any supply difficulties, I will gladly make inquiries.

While thanking the hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him whether he is aware that there is a two-month delay in deliveries in Slough; that delivery men are having to take up another job; that orders for summer supplies cannot be met; and what are to be the prospects for the winter?

I am not aware of these facts. If the hon. Member will let me have particulars, I will gladly look into them.
