HC Deb 21 July 1915 vol 73 c1502W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that collieries producing toluene for Government purposes are handicapped by the manner in which their men are taken away by the recruiting officer; and will he endeavour to secure a better co-ordination of plans between those officials whose business it is to enlist men employed at collieries and those who are pressing colliery owners for products urgently required for munitions, the output of which is being restricted by recruiting?


The question of the limitation of the enlistment of coal miners is engaging the careful attention of the Secretary of State, in conjunction with the Home Office.
