The coal controller has authority to direct that wood fuel be sold in a specific market or to a designated purchaser. With the concurrence of the wartime prices and trade board, he may also set the price at which such
wood shall be sold. Or, if considered necessary, the coal controller may take possession of wood fuel and dispose of it as in his judgment the public interest may demand.
In practice, each individual case will be considered on its merits and the action to be taken, if any, will be determined on the basis of the particular circumstances of that case.
