HC Deb 28 July 1924 vol 176 c1748
53. Sir K. WOOD

asked the Minister of Labour, whether he has made any inquiry concerning the recent. dispute at the Foulshiels colliery, Stoneyburn, West Lothian, where certain firemen, members of the Colliery Firemen's Union, were not permitted to work unless they joined the Miners' Union; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Shinwell)

I have been asked to reply. The dispute, I understand, is at an end and it is not proposed to take any further action in the matter.


Is this the same miners' union which caused a previous colliery strike?


I am not aware whether it is the same miners' union or not.
