HC Deb 19 March 1919 vol 113 c2101
Captain COOTE (by Private Notice)

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the miners of many mines throughout the country came out on strike last Saturday, and many more on Monday; and what action the Government intend to take in view of this open refusal to await the finding of the Coal Commission, and implied refusal to abide by it unless the miners' demands are satisfied in full?


I am informed that about 50,000 miners are on strike mainly in Nottinghamshire and South Wales. As far as my information goes these strikes appear to be due mainly to local issues and do not, I think, warrant the hon. and gallant Member's inference.
