4. Mrs. WARD
asked the Secretary for Mines how many compulsory schemes of amalgamation have been effected under Part II of the Coal Mines Act; and if any have resulted in cheaper coal to the consumer and higher wages and more employment for the miners?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
No compulsory schemes have been effected under Part II of the Coal Mines Act, 1930, and, the second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
