77. Mr. NEWDEGATE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, at 1621 the forthcoming meeting of the joint district board for Warwickshire, formed under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act, under the chairmanship of Sir Walter Lawrence, the secretary of the North Warwickshire Miners' Association will be granted the right of representing to the meeting the claim of the members of that association to receive adequate representation on that joint district board; and whether he will be permitted to be accompanied to 'that meeting by such other representatives of the North Warwickshire Miners' Association as that trade union may desire?
The proceedings of the meetings of the Joint District Board for Warwickshire are under the control of that body; but I have no reason to think that the representatives of the North Warwickshire Miners' Association will not have their case fully considered at a meeting which has been specially called to consider it, and of which they have had notice.
Will the right hon. Gentleman make representations to ask that these men shall be called before the Board so as to make their own representation?
Will the right hon. Member make representations to the Joint Board that these men shall be permitted representation?
