HC Deb 19 April 1928 vol 216 c354
39. Mr. KELLY

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has received Reports as to the difficulty of securing the working rights for minerals in the tin-mining area of Cornwall; and, if so, will he take steps to facilitate matters so that those who are willing to work the minerals may have the opportunity?

Commodore KING

No, Sir. No such cases have been reported to my Department. If there are any I suggest that the interested parties should consider the terms of the Mines (Working Facilities and Support) Act, 1923.


Do I understand that, if cases are brought to his notice, the hon. and gallant Gentleman will go into them?

Commodore KING

I will make inquiries, but I think the hon. Member will find that there are already powers under that Act.
