§ 70. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has been consulted in regard to the wage reduction proposed by the South Wales coal-owners; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Commodore KING
No, Sir. I have not been consulted, and I do not propose to take any action, as the claim is being 2312 dealt with in accordance with the terms of the district agreement to which both employers and employés are parties.
