HC Deb 20 July 1897 vol 51 cc572-3

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether any report has been made to him with respect to the dangerous condition of the dwelling houses of people resident at Quarry Bank; and whether any terms have been arranged in satisfaction of the damage done to the homes and properties of surface owners by the mining operations carried on by the proprietor of the collieries in question?


I find that in the report of the Medical Officer of Health of tie' district—a copy of winch has been furnished to the Local Government Board—there is an incidental reference to the subject, but I have no information as to whether terms have or have not been arranged. The matter is not one in which the Local Government Board have any jurisdiction.
