HC Deb 08 November 1932 vol 270 cc172-3
14. Lieut.-Commander AGNEW

asked the Secretary for Mines if he will state the proposals of the Government for implementing the recommendations regarding tin mining, contained in the report of the Advisory Committee on the Metalliferous Mining and Quarrying Industry on the possibilities of developing or of reviving the working of metalliferous and associated deposits in Great Britain?


The recommendations made in this report are receiving consideration. Some appear to involve only administrative action, and I am in consultation with the other Departments concerned to see how far they can be put into effect. Others would require legislation, and on these I am afraid that I can make no statement at present.
