§ MR. AINSLIE (Lancashire, N. Lonsdale)
asked the Secretary of State for the Homo Department, If he can state the intentions of Her Majesty's Government as to their bringing in a Bill during the present Session to deal with the Metalliferous Mines Act of 1872; or, if not during this Session, then in the next?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
These Acts require to be amended in certain particulars; but there is no intention on the part of the Government to deal with them this Session. It would be premature to give any pledge for next Session.
