MR. FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbech)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, whether the Royal Commission on Royalty Rents has been finally constituted; and, whether he can state when it is likely to enter upon the discharge of its duties?
§ MR. OLDROYD (Dewsbury)
May I also ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he has received any representations from colliery owners and workmen in the Midland districts complaining of the non-representation of their interests on the Commission?
§ * MR. W. H. SMITH
The Commission has been constituted, and includes some representatives of the Midland districts, which it was suggested were not sufficiently represented. The Commission will be gazetted in the course of a day or two.
