§ Mr. Foster
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will consider the advisability of bringing up to date the Coal Mines Act, 1911, to cover modern methods and conditions prevailing in the British coalfields.
Major Lloyd George
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made on this subject, of which I am sending him a copy, during the Debate in this House on 13th July last. Since then further preparatory work has been done in my Department.
