HC Deb 19 April 1932 vol 264 c1392
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?


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.


Do I take it from the reply that the hon. Gentleman is to get some further answers from the Miners' Federation?


I am waiting for fuller information, for which I have asked.
