HC Deb 03 July 1916 vol 83 c1206
34. Mr. MILLAR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of mines rescue stations at present equipped and in working order in Scotland, giving the name of the district in each case?


There are now five central rescue stations equipped and in working order, namely, at Cowdenheath in Fife, at Edinburgh, at Coatbridge in Lanarkshire and at Auchinleck and Kilmarnock in Ayrshire. The three other stations which it was decided to erect, at Larbert in Stirlingshire, at Bathgate in Linlithgowshire, and at Lesmahagow in South Lanark, are also complete except as regards sets of breathing apparatus, and I understand that the makers have promised to deliver the whole of the sets required in the course of this month.
