Right Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Reconstruction and Supply):
On June 13 the hon. member for Lethbridge (Mr. Blackmore)
asked for information about tne quality of coal in the Fish Creek mine. The answer I have obtained is that the 1946 edition of "Coal Mines in Canada" shows that the Fish Creek mine, located in the Priddis area of Alberta, is classified as high volatile bituminous. For that reason the coal is not suitable for domestic use.
