HC Deb 02 March 1910 vol 14 cc834-5

asked if the right hon. Gentleman would bring before the notice of the Royal Commission on Accidents in Mines the full particulars under which the five persona engaged in rescue work after the explosion in the Deri Colliery, South Wales, lost their lives, with a view of pressing forward the provision at all collieries of efficient rescue appliances?


The Royal Commission have already submitted their recommendations in regard to the organisation of rescue work, and the question of giving effect to them is now engaging my attention. I have received a report on the circumstances attending the accident at the Deri Colliery which ought, I think, to be brought to the notice of managers and others engaged in the industry, and I hope to issue it in the course of a few days.
