HC Deb 01 April 1935 vol 300 c24
36. Miss WARD

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can give the House any information as to the position of the coal industry as a result of the working of the Central (Coal Mines) Scheme (Amendment) Order, 1934?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ernest Brown)

I have asked the central council and the district executive boards to furnish me, as soon as possible, with detailed information on the first quarter's working of the amended schemes in force under the Coal Mines Act, 1930. I will then consider the publication of a report based on the information I receive.
