HC Deb 19 January 1937 vol 319 cc6-7
7. Mr. G. Griffiths (for Mr. Batey)

asked the Secretary for Mines, when he is to present the report of the commission appointed by him to inquire into the circumstances of the Gresford Colliery disaster?

Captain Crookshank

I have now received the report of the Commissioner and a report from each of the two assessors. These three reports are now being printed and they will be published together early in February.

Mr. J. Griffiths

Is it proposed that this House shall have an opportunity of discussing these reports upon this terrible calamity?

Captain Crookshank

That does not rest with me. The hon. Member must address that question to the proper quarter.

Mr. Lyons

In publishing the reports is it intended to include a verbatim report of the evidence given at these inquiries?

Captain Crookshank

No, Sir. I was referring to the report of the Commissioner and each of the two assessors.

Mr. Lyons

Is it intended at any time to put before the House a precise copy of the evidence that was tendered at those inquiries? May I have an answer to that question?

Mr. Speaker

It has already been answered.
