§ 32. Mr. E. Smith
asked the Secretary for Mines the areas where instruction in safety principles in junior classes for boys employed in the coal-mining industry is being given; and whether it is intended to encourage the instruction throughout the mining areas?
§ Captain Crookshank
There are 299 training centres scattered throughout the coalfields. I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of the centres, with the number of classes at each. As regards 985 the second part of the question, the continuance and, where necessary, the extension of the already widespread facilities for instruction throughout the coalfield, receives my constant encouragement.
