15. Mr. S. Dunne asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce whether he is aware that a number of coal merchants had stocked up with Polish coal well in advance of the recent increase in coal prices; that these stocks were, and are being, sold at the increased price plus turnover tax charges; and what steps he proposes to take to protect consumers' interests in this matter.
Minister for Industry and Commerce (Mr. J. Lynch) Jack Lynch
 Minister for Industry and Commerce (Mr. J. Lynch): I am not so aware. My information is that for some time past Irish importers generally have been experiencing considerable difficulty in procuring supplies of Polish coal.
