Colonel LANE-FOX

As I am informed the hon. Member on 4th August, T have no information about coal supplied to colliery owners, etc. The answer to the second part is that in matters of this kind the same rules will apply as between the Government and the colliery owners as have been in operation as between the miners and the colliery owners under their national wages agreement.
