HC Deb 17 April 1877 vol 233 c1269

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If his attention has been called to the account of the trial and conviction of the manager of the Park Hall Colliery, Cheadle, county Stafford, which appeared in the "Staffordshire Advertiser," date the 7th instant, for having violated the Mines Act, 1872, in five of its provisions, and in consequence of which several persons were roasted, one of whom died; and, whether, considering the manner in which the Law was violated, he will order a further inquiry to be made into his conduct, with the view of removing him from the list of certified managers, as provided for by the Act of 1872?


in reply, said, ho thought it would be necessary to make an inquiry into this case; but before doing so lie had instituted preliminary inquiries to see whether interference was requisite.
