§ 30. Mr. TINKER
asked the Secretary for Mines if he has completed his inquiries into the position of boys working underground between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.; and if he will bring in a Measure to place them in the same position as boys working on the surface?
§ Mr. ISAAC FOOT
I am not quite clear what inquiries the hon. Member has in mind. I discussed this question with representatives of the Miners' Federation in February last, and informed them that I should be happy to consider it in detail when I had their arguments before me; but I have not yet received this information.
§ Mr. TINKER
Do I take it from the reply that the hon. Gentleman is to get some further answers from the Miners' Federation?
