HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1534-5
77. Mr. Ritson

asked the Secretary for Mines how many inspections, under Section 16 of the Coal Mines Act, 1911, have been carried out at Adventure colliery, Durham, in 1936 and 1937?

The Secretary for Mines (Captain Crookshank)

Two such inspections were made in each year.

Mr. Ritson

Is the Minister aware that this is the only colliery in Durham where the agreed examination formula is not allowed, and does he not think that, in the interests of safety, his Department should deal with the matter?

Captain Crookshank

That is another question. I was only asked about how many examinations had taken place, and I have answered that.
