HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 cc90-1W
86. Mr. Wilkes

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will now state, in answer to representations made on 4th February, whether transport facilities have been arranged for approximately 30 miners living in Newcastle-on-Tyne employed on the night shift at Denton, Dinnington and Dudley and Seaton-Burn collieries, to obviate a walk of more than three miles to the collieries to the detriment of coal production; and whether the United Bus Company have been approached and given their consent to the use of their late staff omnibus for this purpose.

Mr. Shinwell

I have nothing to add at this stage to the communication already sent to my hon. Friend on this subject, but I will keep him informed of further developments.
