§ Mr. ERSKINE
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of a threatened mining strike, he will cause inquiries to be made without delay in order to get at the facts and technical points so that the public may be informed, so far as possible, as to rights of the respective parties?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given yesterday by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Mines Department in reply to questions on this subject.
§ Mr. EMLYN-JONES
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the experience of the last two strikes, he will set up immediately the necessary machinery to inquire into the dispute in the mining industry before the expiry of the strike notices?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the replies which I gave yesterday to the hon. Members for Broxtowe (Mr. G. Spencer) and Moseley (Mr. Hannon).
