HC Deb 14 March 1910 vol 15 cc7-8

asked whether, in view of the 1,445 fatal accidents in the mines during 1909, and 5,859 non-fatal accidents reported to the inspector, the Home Secretary can state when more inspectors of mines will be appointed?


The Secretary of State has the recommendations of the Royal Commission on this subject now under his consideration, and he proposes, as a first step, to carry out the rearrangement of the districts and the reorganisation of the existing staff which the Commission recommended.
