HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 cc2854-5
64. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary for Mines whether any investigation has been made into the complaints which have been received regarding the keeping of the overtime register and the winding times at New London Colliery, Nottinghamshire; and what action has been taken?


Complaints which the hon. Member referred to my predecessor in office last May were carefully investigated, and it was found that all the overtime worked had been correctly recorded except in one instance, which was due to an omission on the part of the banksman. Attention was at once given to the matter. As regards the winding times, owing to the reduction in winding speed as recommended by the Overwind Prevention Committee, the approved winding time at this colliery was found to be insufficient, and had to be increased. This matter is now in order.
