§ 73. Mr. HOPKIN
asked the Secretary for Mines if the men working on pneumatic drills in the Cross Hands Colliery, Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire, are supplied with any means of protection against the dust?
§ Mr. TURNER
I am informed that the necessary equipment is on order for the one pneumatic drill now in occasional use, but that it has not yet been installed. The matter shall have my immediate attention.
§ Mr. HOPKIN
Is my hon. Friend aware that six men have died in this district in the last 12 months from silicosis?
