70. Mr. Spriggs

asked the Paymaster-General if his attention has been drawn to the mining subsidence which is damaging All Saints Church, Sutton, the Sutton Church of England National School, and the Sutton Church of England Parish Church, in the County Borough of St. Helens; if he will communicate with the National Coal Board with special regard to the subsidence affecting these churches and the National Church School; and if he will make a statement.
