HC Deb 21 June 1933 vol 279 c763
41. Mr. TINKER

asked the Home Secretary if the schemes put forward by the colliery companies for the insurance of workmen under the Workmen's Compensation Act will be submitted to the Miners' Federation before the Home Office accepts them as satisfactory?


It is my right hon. Friend's desire that the Federation should be fully informed as to the arrangements which are being made. He has already told them that if they are not clear as to the position in any respect he will be glad to supply further information and consider any representations. He contemplates communicating with them again as the scheme develops further.


Will the Home Office, in any action it takes on this matter, consult the Miners' Federation?


If the hon. Member will take the trouble to read the question and the answer, he will get a reply to the question which he has now put.
