§ 15. Mr. MARTIN
asked the Secretary for Mines if he has received any recommendation from the central council set up under the provisions of the Coal Mines 170 Act, 1930, with regard to amendments to any section of the machinery operating under the Act?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
No, Sir. But I understand that suggested amendments are under active discussion between the central council and the district executive boards.
§ Mr. MARTIN
Has the Secretary for Mines any idea of the lines which these recommendations will take in the report of the central council?
§ Mr. GODFREY NICHOLSON
Has the Secretary for Mines definitely made up his mind as to policy in the event of unanimity not being reached?
If there is no common agreement as to the recommendation of the central council, will the hon. Member ask the Government to take action to remedy some of the grievances under the Coal Mines Act?
