§ Mr. POTTS
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will introduce legislation to amend the Coal Mines Regulation Act by embodying statutory obligation to work mining minerals upon the retreating system, with the object of increasing output per person employed and reducing cost of production in future-sunk mines?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
As I have already informed my hon. Friend, I regret that I do not see my way to introducing legislation on the lines he suggests.
