§ Sir FREDERICK BANBURY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the chairmen of the district and sub-district boards to be appointed under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act will be paid; and, if so, by whom; and by whom will the expenses of their staff be paid?
In the opinion of the Government the payment of the chairmen of the Joint District Boards should be a public charge.
§ Sir F. BANBURY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Supplementary Estimates dealing with this new charge will be introduced?
