HC Deb 19 February 1924 vol 169 cc1589-90W

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has any information as to the closing down of the Bellfield (Nos. 3 and 4) and Auchenbeg collieries in the Coalburn district of Lanarkshire; and, in view of the considerable apprehension as to danger from flooding which -exists in the minds of the workmen engaged in the adjoining pits (Nos. 9 and 10) of the Auchlochan Coal Company, workings of which are going towards Bellfield, will he inquire into this matter?


I have no information at present, but am inquiring into the matter.
