HC Deb 26 April 1910 vol 17 c240

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he was aware that the Labour Exchanges were drafting into the Yorkshire coalfield unskilled men who had never worked in the pits before, while experienced and practical miners were constantly applying at the collieries for work and were being refused work; and whether he could state whether these inexperienced and unskilled men were being paid trade union rates of wages?


I am making inquiries into the point raised by my hon. Friend, but so far I have not been able to trace any such case as that referred to in the question.
