HC Deb 04 August 1925 vol 187 c1181W

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has received the Report of the investigation he has instituted into the conditions at Montagu Colliery; and what action he is prepared to take in the matter?

Colonel LANE - FOX

I have now received this Report. Its conclusion is that the water remaining in the mine can be pumped out without undue risk to the men engaged, provided that certain precautions are taken. I have communicated this to the owners, but have not yet received a reply from them.
