§ Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the General Regulations under the Coal Mines Act of 1911 will be issued as finally adjusted; and whether a full opportunity has been afforded to the miners' representatives of stating their views before the Referee?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The regulations have now been made by me in accordance with the recommendations of the referee. Copies are being printed, and should be available in the course of a few days. I understand a number of representatives, both of the general body of miners and of particular sections, such as the engine winders and firemen, were present at the inquiry and were given a full hearing by the referee.
