HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 c3523W
Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary for Mines, when the rules to be made under the Coal (Registration of Ownership) Bill are likely to be published?

Captain Crookshank

Assuming that the Bill receives the Royal Assent to-day, I hope that the rules will be made and published within the next week or so. The work of registration will be carried out by my Department, and I take this opportunity of informing the House that Sir Ernest Gowers, in conformity with the arrangement referred to by me in answer to a question by the hon. Member for Wallsend on 2nd July of last year, has been invited to exercise general supervision of this work and has agreed to do so.
