asked the Secretary of State for Energy what steps he is taking to remedy the shortage of anthracite and other smokeless fuels in Mid-Wales.

I am satisfied that producers and merchants have been, and are, doing all they can to supply maximum amounts of anthracite and other smokeless fuels and to distribute them equitably. Within a situation which has now eased generally, shortages of particular fuels, notably anthracite, still persist, but I am sure that the producers and the trade will do their best to satisfy their customers and in particular will use their emergency arrangements promptly in cases of real need. I do not know of special problems peculiar to Mid-Wales.
