HC Deb 04 May 1908 vol 187 c1657
MR. MEYSEY-THOMPSON (Staffordshire, Handsworth)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any steps are being taken by the Government to recognise the efforts made by the miners in the Hamstead Colliery and their Yorkshire colleagues to rescue those who were entombed, and lost their lives in the recent terrible disaster in that mine.


Yes, Sir, the question is at the present moment under consideration, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
