HC Deb 06 February 1934 vol 285 cc957-8
57. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary for Mines what action the Government propose to take with reference to the proposal in the Report of the Mines Reorganisation Commission that mining royalties should be nationalised as an essential part of the better organisation of the industry?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ernest Brown)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Prime Minister on the 31st January to a similar question by the hon. Member for Normanton (Mr. T. Smith).


Will the hon. Gentleman do his best to urge this policy vigorously on the Cabinet?


I would advise the hon. Member to read that reply of 31st January.
