HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 c1603W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is satisfied with working conditions in the Mirampa iron mines in Sierra Leone; and whether these mines are being regularly inspected by a Government inspector?

Colonel Stanley

The Government of Sierra Leone has been giving close attention to working conditions in the Marampa mines, and is taking the necessary steps to ensure improvement where it is required. A system of Government inspection is in force and the question of taking more adequate power to ensure compliance with the results of these inspections is under consideration.
