HC Deb 19 February 1904 vol 130 c447

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any opportunity will be given to the House to discuss the departmental recommendations of the Electricity in Mines Committee Report, presented to this House on 28th January; and will he say when the minutes of evidence will be available for the use of Members.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) I am not aware of any reason for departing from ordinary Parliamentary procedure in this matter. I appointed the Committee to advise me on the subject of the use of electricity in mines for the purposes of my duties under the Mines Regulation Acts, and it will be open to any hon. Member to discuss, on the Home Office Vote, the action which I take on the recommendations made by the Committee.
