§ 9. Mr. TINKER
asked the Secretary for Mines if he is yet in a position to make a statement in respect of the communications he has addressed to the Mining Association and the Miners' Federation to express their views on the operation of Part I of the Coal Mines Act, 1930?
§ Mr. ISAAC FOOT
The position has not changed since the 17th February, when I answered a question by my hon. Friend the Member for the Hallam Division of Sheffield (Mr. L. Smith).
§ 16. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will inform the House of his attitude towards the representation made to his Department on the desirability of extending Part I of the Coal Mines Act, 1930, so as to make provision for district selling agencies?
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
After the experience gained over 12 months, will the hon. Member consider sympathetically any representations that are made by the colliery owners?
