HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 cc219-20
67. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Secretary for Mines when he expects to publish the result of the investigation held into the Mossfield mine explosion, and whether action is to be taken to make suitable recognition of all those who played their part in minimising the danger and assisted in the attempts to save the lives of others?

The Secretary for Mines (Mr. David Grenfell)

The Commissioner informs me that he is actively engaged in preparing his report, but cannot yet forecast a date for its completion. The matter raised in the latter part of the Question will be carefully considered when the report is received.

Mr. Smith

Has my hon. Friend read the Press report of the Coroner's inquest and the remarks made by the Coroner?

Mr. Grenfell

I have road the report, and I will keep it in mind.
