HC Deb 31 March 1913 vol 51 c54W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the minimum rates of wages for workmen employed underground that have been settled by the Joint District Boards for each of the districts named in the Schedule to the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act, 1912?


The various minimum rates—of which there are a large number—settled by the Joint District Boards under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act, 1912, for the twenty-two districts concerned have been published from time to time in the "Board of Trade Labour Gazette," and they will all appear as an Appendix to the Report on Proceedings under the Conciliation Act, which will be issued in the course of a few days. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of this Report as soon as it is published.
