HC Deb 23 July 1912 vol 41 cc1005-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can now fulfil his promise to have the awards and conditions attaching thereto made under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act published as a White Paper?


The rates and rules settled in connection with the Joint District Boards under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act have been printed in full in the recent issues of the "Board of Trade Labour Gazette," with the exception of that for the Bristol district, which will appear in the "Gazette" for August, and it is also proposed to print them, with any amendments and supplementary agreements or awards, as an appendix to the Report on the proceedings under the Conciliation Act for the year 1912. In these circumstances, it does not seem necessary to print them as a White Paper.
