§ Mr. J. BAKER
asked the Secretary for Mines if he can supply particulars as to any colliery amalgamations that have taken place under the Mining Industry Act, 1926?
§ Colonel LANE FOX
Parliament has made provision in the Mining Industry Act, 1926, for a report on this subject after the expiration of two years from the passing of that Act. I have made arrangements by which authoritative information will be available next autumn for the purpose of this report, which I am not prepared to anticipate by giving, by way of question and answer, information that would necessarily be incomplete and might be misleading.
