The annual production of coal-tar is very considerable. England produces 120,000 to 130,000 tons, Belgium 10,000 tons, France 30,000 to 35,000 tons. Before the development of new branches of industry, including among others the manufacture of aniline colours, the price of coal-tar in France was from 5s. to 8s. a ton. It is now £ 2 8s. to £3 12s, a ton.
