HC Deb 29 June 1959 vol 608 c12W
90. Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Labour what consideration he is giving to the provision of Government assistance in solving the problem of transferring miners and their families from coalfield to coalfield; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The schemes of financial assistance to transferred workers administered by my Department do not apply to men transferred within the service of a single employer. I understand the National Coal Board operates its own scheme of assistance. If the hon. Member has any particular problems in mind, perhaps he would let me know.
