§ 9. Captain SPENCER
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is yet in a position to state the Government's policy as to the amendment of the central scheme under the Coal Mines Act, 1930?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
Yes, Sir. I hope to introduce this week a Bill to amend Part I of the Coal Mines Act, 1930, by providing for the inter-district co-ordination of minimum prices by the central council and for the freedom of coal for export from quantitative control.
§ Mr. ROBINSON
Can my hon. Friend tell me whether the Bill has been reached by agreement with the coalowners, or is it a Bill which will be introduced in default of an agreement?
