HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 cc640-1

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state on what date did the Government inspectors last visit the Hamstead colliery; and will he state what was the nature of their Report?


The mine was visited by an inspector on the 22nd instant in connection with an accident from fall of coal; on the 21st January for the special purpose of obtaining certain information required by the Department in regard to temperature; and on 6th December and 15th November for purposes of general inspection. Reports made by the inspectors are treated as confidential, but I may say the condition of the mine was found to be satisfactory.
