§ 38. Mr. T. SMITH
asked the Secretary for Mines what steps he proposes to take to prevent evasions or avoidances of the price regulation under the Coal Mines Act, 1930, by the operation of subsidiary companies?
§ The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ernest Brown)
On 1st August last I approved amendments of the Durham district scheme which were intended to strengthen the powers of the Executive Board in dealing, inter alia, with evasions of the minimum price regulations through subsidiary companies. At my request the Central Council brought these amendments to the notice of all other districts. I am sending copies of them to the hon. Member.
