§ Mr. HANCOCK
asked the Secretary for Mines whether, for the convenience of all interested in coalmining, he will have put into one Consolidation Bill the various Measures now upon the Statute Book relating to coalmining?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I have been asked to reply. I would remind the hon. Member that the principal enactments relating to coalmining were consolidated as recently as 1911. I do not think the time is yet ripe for further consolidation.
