§ 3. Mr. George Hall
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the large number of unemployed miners who are partially disabled owing to accidents received in the course of their employment, and who are now, owing to the prolonged depression, unable to obtain employment in the coal-mining industry; and whether any steps are taken by his Department with the view of suitable employment being obtained for these men?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Inquiries are being made into the position, and I will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Lawson
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Durham coalowners and the miners' representatives are dealing with this matter this week, and will he inquire what is being done and try to facilitate the matter?
