§ 24. Major BREESE
asked the Home Secretary if it is intended at an early date to formulate fresh regulations for safeguarding the health, and providing against accidents, of men employed in the slate quarries and mines of the United Kingdom?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Bridgeman)
I have been asked to reply. The revision of the existing regulations has already been taken in hand, and will be completed as quickly as possible, having regard to the paramount claims of the work put on the Department by the prolonged stoppage of the coal pits.
