HC Deb 24 April 1929 vol 227 cc886-7W

asked the Secretary for Mines in how many cases action has been taken by the Department, under Section 21 of the Mining Industry Act, 1926, to secure the establishment at coal mines of joint committees representing employers and employed; and whether any regulations have been made by the Department as contemplated by that section?

Commodore KING

There has been no occasion for the exercise of the powers under this section, and it has not been necessary therefore to make any regulations.
