§ 55. Colonel BURDON
asked the Prime Minister whether the evidence which was given before the Coal Commission up to the date of the interim Report, and which has been in the hands of private individuals for several weeks past, can now be laid upon the Table of the House?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Wardle)
The publication of the volume containing the evidence given before the Coal Industry Commission in March is being pushed forward as rapidly as possible. The evidence alone contains over 10,000 questions, and the appendices are also very bulky. Unrevised and unbound prints of the evidence have been supplied to various persons and associations for the purpose of the preparation and presentation of evidence before the Commission during the present stage of the Inquiry.
§ Mr. MARRIOTT
Will they not also be presented to this House if they have been presented to individuals and associations?
