§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Departmental Committee on the Notification of Accidents have yet reported to him; and, if so, whether they have made any recommendation which will have the effect of distinguishing in the statistics of mining accidents between those occurring to male persons under sixteen years and under twenty or twenty-one years of age.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Ritchie.) The Committee has not yet reported. I understand that it will not conclude its inquiry until the Autumn.
