Transcript CHAPTER X. HOW SHALL WE RE-ORGANISE OUR COAL SUPPLY? A.—Coal and National Greatness. t The prosperity of this country during the last century has been fundamentally due to its possession of immense stores of accessible and easily worked coal. Coal is still the main source of power : it supplies the driving force for our manufactures and propels the bulk of our overland and overseas traffic—to say nothing of giving the community the heat and light on which civilised existence depends. The nation pays for its coal not less than £230,000,000 per annum—more than it pays for its housing, its bread, or any other commodity. In the last complete year of peace the total output of coal reached 287 million tons (150 millions to the Government and Local Authorities, gas and electricity works, coke-ovens, metallurgical plants, and factories; 77 millions for export; 21 millions for bunker coal; 39 millions for household consumption). (Two important consequences of the bulkinese of coal (should be noted :—(a) It is costly to transport and, therefore, industries and population integrate round the pits; (b) our immense imports consist of bulky food and raw materials; we pay for these by "invisible exports" of shipping service, by non- bulky manufactures, and by coal. Without the coal, our ships would have to make the outgoing voyage in ballast. " Its importance in this respect to the shipping industry," says Lord Rhondda, " would be difficult to exaggerate." No less has been'its importance in the development of our manufactures and in the reduction of the cost of living.)
