HC Deb 12 March 1923 vol 161 c1058W

asked the Secretary for Mines whether, in view of the recent explosions in mines and admitted failure, contained in Reports of such explosions, to supply sufficient air to render the gases harmless, he has taken any steps to see that the provisions contained in the mining Regulations are strictly enforced?

Lieut.-Colonel LANE-FOX

The Mines Department and its Inspectors have done their utmost in the matter, and I need hardly assure the hon. Member that they will continue to do so.
