HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 c2066W

asked the Secretary for Mines if he will give consideration to the safety appliances for the purpose of arresting carves that are carrying men to and from their work underground in the event of the rope breaking and other causes, with a view to their compulsory adoption?

Colonel LANE-FOX

Very careful consideration is being given to the whole problem of the safe conveyance of men underground, but insistence on the general use of devices of this kind is not practicable at present.
