§ Mr. J. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will inquire into the measures adopted by the French Government to take over the coalmines and as to the machinery adapted for the purpose of administering the State mines and the results that have followed, and make the information available to the House.
Major Lloyd George
Arrangements have been made for the interchange of information on coal matters between the two countries. I am advised, however, that it is too early yet, particularly having in mind present conditions in France, to draw any conclusions from the measures recently adopted.
