§ 10. Mr. TINKER
asked the Secretary for Mines if, when the inspectors make a report of accidents that have taken place, they state the circumstances arising, and if any of them are caused through insufficient examination and care on the part of the management?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ernest Brown)
The answer to the first part of the question is "Yes." There are, unhappily, many accidents that occur through lack of care, sometimes on the part of the management and sometimes on the part of officials or workmen, both in making examinations and in other matters.
§ Mr. TINKER
May I ask whether, when inspectors make a report pointing out where an accident might have been avoided, more attention is paid to what the employers and management side say than to representatives from the employés?
§ Mr. T. SMITH
May I ask whether the inspectors differentiate in cases where an accident occurs on the machine face or elsewhere?
