§ 37. Mr. DUNNICO
asked the Secretary for Mines whether, in view of the hardships incurred by workers whose property has been damaged by mining subsidences, he will ascertain if the Commission of Inquire now sitting is likely to present its Report in. time to enable legislation being introduced upon this matter in the near future?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
I understand that it is not likely that the Commission will he able to present a Report for several months. The subject is a difficult and important one; and a large mass of evidence has to be taken. In addition, the Commission are paying a series of visits to places where the problem is acute and taking evidence on the spot.
