HC Deb 25 April 1923 vol 163 c499W

asked the Secretary for Mines if he would be willing to arrange for the loan of colliery safety films to be shown at local cinema houses in mining districts, in order to bring them before many miners who otherwise would not see them.

Lieut.-Colonel LANE-FOX

Yes, sir. A film on coal dust explosions has already been prepared and I shall be glad to lend it free of charge wherever its exhibition in mining districts can be arranged. In several districts this is already being done. I hope it may be possible, with the help of the Safety in Mines Research Board, to extend this valuable method of publicity to other safety questions of mining.
