HC Deb 14 November 1934 vol 293 c1968W

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will consider setting up a committee to examine the position of funds raised in connection with colliery disasters, with a. view to the committee putting forward a scheme for the transference of all such funds to a central board, who would undertake the collection and distribution of all such moneys raised for future disaster funds?


I have examined my hon. Friend's suggestion, but he will realise that his proposal is much wider than a Departmental one. I shall be pleased, however, to discuss the issues involved with him, or any others Members interested, and to convey their representations to the proper quarters.
