HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 c1846W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the large number of miners thrown out of work in Glamorgan during last month; and what action he is taking to prevent some of these areas becoming derelict?

Mr. E. Bevin

The arrangements to be made within the coal mining industry are primarily a matter for my hon. Friend the Secretary for Mines. My Department has made and will continue to make, every effort to secure the location of new undertakings and to placing of contracts in areas where suitable labour is available, including Glamorgan.
