HC Deb 12 March 1923 vol 161 c1054W

asked the Secretary for Mines the dates on which the Garforth collieries were visited by the mines inspector during the six months ending 31st December last: which pit or seams were visited; and the time actually spent below ground in making the inspection?

Lieut.-Colonel LANE-FOX:

Underground inspections at this group of three pits were made on 16 occasions during the six months ended 31st December. The seams visited were the Silkstone, Beeston and Flockton seams. No exact record was kept of the time actually spent below ground on each occasion, but the average was about four hours.
