HC Deb 29 June 1939 vol 349 c649W
Mr. S.O. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has received any assurances from mineowners that any miners called up under the Military Training Act will not, as a consequence, suffer with respect to the amount of holiday pay that they would otherwise have received?

Mr. E. Brown

I have been asked to reply. No, Sir; I would point out that the provision of holidays with pay in the mining industry is regulated by collective agreements made between the organisations of mineowners and mine workers in the various districts.
