HC Deb 29 June 1933 vol 279 c1656
40. Mrs. WARD (for Sir JOSEPH NALL)

asked the Secretary for Mines what steps he proposes to take in view of the present position of Part I of the Coal Mines Act; and whether he will consider the desirability of bringing Part I of the Act within the purview of the statutory commission set up for the purposes of Part II of the said Act?


As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply on Tuesday to the hon. Member for Aberdare (Mr. G. Hall). As regards the second part, I take note of the suggestion, but my hon. Friend will appreciate that this would involve a complete change of the principle on which Part I of the Act is based.
