§ 70. Mr. RAFFAN
asked the Home Secretary whether two years' experience at the face of the workings of a mine referred to in Section 15 (1) (a) of the Coal Mines Act, 1911, means that the person must have been actually hewing coal for that period, or whether general experience about the coal face satisfies the meaning of the Act?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Ellis Griffith)
I am advised that two years' practical experience at the face, in whatever class of employment, would satisfy the requirement.
