HC Deb 28 July 1931 vol 255 c2112W

asked the Secretary for Mines the number of occasions on which the Rufford colliery, Notts, was examined by the workmen's inspectors and inspectors of the Mines Department, respectively, during the years 1929 and 1930?


During 1929 and 1930 inspections at Rufford colliery were made by inspectors of the Mines Department upon 31 occasions, 28 of the inspections being underground and three on the surface. There is no record of any inspection having been made during these two years by workmen's inspectors under Section 16 of the Coal Mines Act, 1911, though upon one occasion during 1930 an examination of an area affected by a gob fire was made by representatives of the workmen.
