§ Mr. C. EDWARDS
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Employment Exchange officials have been canvassing men to return to work at Nine Mile Point Colliery, Monmouthshire; that on the note presented to each man no terms for piece-workers were specified; that neither the miners' agent nor lodge officials had any intimation from the colliery company that they intended reopening the colliery; whether this is part of the duty of these Exchange officials; and, if not, will he take steps to prevent it in future?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I am having inquiries made into the points raised by the hon. Member, and will communicate the result to him as soon as possible.
