HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 cc2406-7W
Mr. Foster

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether the coalowners through the Mining Association have given any undertaking to his Ministry to re-employ injured miners who have been wholly or partially rehabilitated through the rehabilitation centres set up under the Miners Welfare Commission.

Major Lloyd George

No difficulty is experienced in securing the re-employment of injured miners who have been fully restored to health. The grades of coalmining work on which partially incapacitated men can be employed are extremely limited and no definite undertaking of the kind mentioned has been given. In this connection I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to him on 20th June last.
