HC Deb 04 June 1913 vol 53 c889
71. Mr. RAFFAN

asked whether a colliery manager has the right to refuse to sign the certificate required by the examining institution for colliery firemen's examinations on being requested to do so by the candidate for examination, although the candidate has had the experience required by the Coal Mines Act, 1911?


I am not sure to what certificate my hon. Friend is referring. If it is a certificate that the candidate has had the five years' practical experience required by the Act, this is not a matter on which approved institutions are required to satisfy themselves before issuing firemen's certificates. If my hon. Friend will communicate to me the particulars of the case he has in mind, I will make inquiry.
