SUPPLY OF COAL
IMPROVEMENT IN POSITION
'CATCHING UP FAIRLY SLOWLY'
WELLINGTON, this day. The coal supply position is improving, according to a brief statement by the Minister of Marine, Mr. O'Brien, in the House of Representatives last night. The Minister said he believed that most of the industries had three weeks' supply of coal to-day and gasworks one week's supply. ' "We are catching up fairly slowly," added the Minister, "but it will take some time. We will have to produce more coal or get it from Australia if we are to completely overcome the shortage."
