HC Deb 15 July 1930 vol 241 cc1121-2W

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has any information in his Department of the number of men who have been refused employment in the collieries in Lanarkshire on account of their having been in receipt of compensation for nystagmus; and, if such information is not now available, whether he can issue regulations to ensure that such records are kept at each colliery, so that they can be supplied to his Department on demand?
