§ 88. Mr. OWEN
asked the Secretary for Mines whether his attention has been 2136 called to a fatal accident at the Dinorwic quarries, Carnarvonshire, on Friday, 29th February; whether he is aware that this is the fourth fatal accident which has occurred in Carnarvonshire quarries already this year; and whether, in view of the frequency of these accidents, he will say when it is proposed to put into operation the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Metalliferous Mines and Quarries?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
Yes, Sir, I am aware of those regrettable accidents. The revised code of special rules has now been completed and sent to representative associations of the industry. I hope it will command sufficient agreement to enable me to establish it for individual quarries as rapidly as possible.
