HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 cc1635-6W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Secretary for Mines the number of separate ownerships of coal mines in Great Britain; the numbers included which are limited liability companies; and the total number of directors of these limited liability companies?

Colonel LANE FOX

According to the latest information available there are in Great Britain 1,417 undertakings com- prising coal mines of which 927 are limited liability companies. I cannot say what is the total number of directors of these companies, but some information on this subject is to be found in Table 9 of Appendix 18, Volume 3 of the Report of the recent Royal Commission.
