HC Deb 22 June 1922 vol 155 cc1511-2
92. Mr. LAWSON

asked the Secretary for Mines when the Report of the Committee on Accidents in Mines will be issued?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Bridgeman)

I think the hon. Member's question must refer to the Safety in Mines Research Board, which I appointed last year to direct generally the research work of the Mines Department into the causes of mining dangers. It reports to me from time to time on such matters as I refer to it for consideration, but I have not asked the Board to make any general report on accidents in mines.
