§ Mr. GEORGE GIBBS
asked the right hon. Gentleman if he will state when the Bill to amend the Coal Mines (Eight Hours) Act will be introduced, in order to comply with the pledge given by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster in the course of the recent election for the Cleveland Division?
§ Mr. GLADSTONE
No pledge was given by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. He made an announcement, on my authority, that such a Bill would be introduced. The introduction will be as soon as possible, but I cannot yet name a date.
