HC Deb 12 May 1958 vol 588 c7W
55. Mr. Osborne

asked the Paymaster-General how many of the 4,000 Hungarian miners who were specially selected by the National Coal Board to work in British mines, and were paid £8 a week for many weeks during their training, are now working in the mines: and what was the total cost of the whole scheme.

Sir I. Horobin

There are 659 in the mines and 250 in associated activities. The cost of the scheme is in the first place a matter for the National Coal Board.
