HC Deb 22 June 1927 vol 207 c1863W

asked the Secretary for Mines if the Mines Department have stopped issuing the quarterly White Paper?

Colonel LANE FOX

No, Sir. I propose to resume it as from the beginning of this year, and also to publish certain particulars for the period May to December, 1926. But for these periods I cannot rely, as I ordinarily do, on returns made for wages-ascertainments, and special returns are necessary. I regret to say that I have not yet been able to obtain the necessary particulars in this way in sufficient volume to justify publication, and I am bringing pressure to bear on the undertakings that have failed to make the returns asked for.
