To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will say on what date it is proposed that the Mines (Eight Hours) Bill should come into operation.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) I have decided to propose an amendment to the Bill relating to the date of its operation, so as to provide that in any event, no change shall be effected by it until after 30th June, 1909.
