§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Fuel and Power (Mr. T. Smith)
During the operation of the Essential Work (Coal Mining Industry) Order the payments of guaranteed wage to Scottish miners have totalled £183,576. That is the amount from the beginning of June, 1941, to 26th June, 1942.
§ Mr. Foster
What steps, if any, are being taken to ascertain the causes of these losses, and who is responsible?
§ Mr. Speaker
Did not the hon. Member hear the Minister say that he would give an answer if another Question was put on the Order Paper?
