§ The Secretary for Mines (Captain Crookshank)
A typescript copy of the evidence has been available in the Library for some time past. The evidence is very long, and I do not propose to publish it.
§ Mr. Morgan Jones
Is not this evidence of sufficient importance, from the point of view of those outside, to warrant its publication?
§ Captain Crookshank
No, Sir. I think that, if the House will await the report, they will see that that is so. The evidence is extremely voluminous; it covers 38 volumes of typescript.
§ Sir Arnold Wilson
Will my hon. and gallant Friend consider providing an index to the 3,000 pages of typescript? It would be of great assistance.
§ 46. Mr. G. Griffiths (for Mr. J. Griffiths)
asked the Prime Minister whether he will arrange for the House to have time to discuss the report of the Commission of Inquiry into the causes of the Gresford Colliery disaster?
§ The Prime Minister
Until the reports have been published early next month, I am not in a position to make any statement.
