§ 12. Mr. A. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary for Mines whether the Government have now decided on their proposed legislation with regard to compensation for subsidence in mining districts; and whether the Bill will be introduced this Session in order that it may be fully considered during the Recess and passed into law next Session?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Bridgeman)
I cannot add anything at present to the reply given to the hon. Member on the 11th August last. The Bill cannot be introduced this Session.
§ Mr. A. WILLIAMS
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is two years or three years since this promise was given?
