HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 c63W

asked the Secretary for Mines the number of persons employed, the quantity of coal raised and the quantity commercially disposed of, the wages cost and the costs other than wages in the Monmouthshire and South Wales coalfields during July, August, and September, respectively?


As soon as I have obtained the necessary information I will issue a statement giving these particulars for the quarter ended the 30th September in respect of the industry as a whole and the various districts. I do not think the circumstances are such as would justify me in asking for the figures for each month separately.
