31. Mr. Murray
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that Mr. Alfred Hall, a coalcutter, who worked at Roddymoor Colliery, County Durham, until owing to eye trouble he became unable to continue his employment, was later certified fit for light work but unable to get it; that he then became an air-raid warden, later joining the Navy and serving for three years; that the Admiralty have granted Mr. Hall his release to return to the mines, passing him Grade I, that the colliery say they have no pit room for him after 16 years of good service; and will he take steps to enable this man to produce coal which the country so much needs.
Major Lloyd George
I am making inquiries and I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
