HC Deb 04 August 1919 vol 119 c15
56. Captain ORMSBY-GORE

asked the Prime Minister whether the action to be taken by the Government in respect of the coal industry arising out of the second Report of the Royal Commission presided over by Mr. Justice Sankey will be embodied in a Bill to be introduced in Parliament, or whether they propose to carry out their decision on that Report by executive action?

Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)

The Government are giving careful consideration to the recommendations contained in the second Report of the Coal Industry Commission, and, as I have already said, the Prime Minister hopes to be in a position to make a statement on this subject before the Recess.
