asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can state the arrangements made, who is to conduct the inquiry, and whether it will be a full investigation into the causes and circumstances attending the explosion which occurred at the Mossfield colliery, Longton, on 2st March; and whether it is intended to invite two assessors to be present and to have evidence taken from all who may assist in the investigation?

Mr. Shakespeare

The matter is under consideration and the Secretary for Mines will make a statement as soon as possible.
