HC Deb 19 May 1931 vol 252 c1794W

asked the Secretary for Mines the number of mines or groups of mines that have installed dust-extracting and automatic provender-mixing plants in order to provide clean and properly mixed food for pit ponies; whether he is aware of the advantages claimed for these plants; and whether he will recommend the general adoption of these plants by all colliery companies employing horses and ponies underground?


I know of these plants and the advantages claimed for them, but I have no detailed information as to the extent and circumstances of their use in mines.
