Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Cost of Coal.

asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state the average monthly c.i.f. values per ton of (1) household coal; (2) all coal imported in each of the months April, May, June, July, August, September, October, 1941.

As the reply is in the form of a tabular statement I propose to circulate it with the Official Report. The following is the information required:—
