HC Deb 28 March 1912 vol 36 c593
Captain FABER

asked the Prime Minister what has been the decrease in the earnings of miners engaged in piece-work since the Coal Mines (Eight Hours) Act came into operation?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Buxton)

I regret that there are no available statistics on the point raised by the hon. Member.

Captain FABER

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell me whether there has been any lessening not in money but in output?


I must have notice.
