22. Major ROPNER

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is aware that the officials of the Caroline Pit were found by a jury to be guilty of general all-round laxity amounting to negligence; and what steps he will take to ensure future efficiency at that colliery?

Colonel LANE FOX

Yes, Sir. I have decided to remit the case to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
