MR. J. LOWTHER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, having regard to recent explosions in mines, the Report of the Royal Commission on Accidents in Mines could be accelerated so as to permit of some legislation on the subject being undertaken during the present Session of Parliament?
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT,
in reply, said, he regretted very much the long-continued delay in the presenta- 233 tion of the Report. He had frequently urged that it should be accelerated, and he had received recently assurances that it might be soon expected, and he hoped that would be fulfilled.
