§ Mr. Grenfell
(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can now make any statement with regard to pit-head baths?
§ Captain Crookshank
Yes, Sir. This matter has been for some time under consideration in view of the urgent need for the more rapid provision of pit-head baths. The Government propose during the next session of Parliament to introduce a Measure to increase the output levy from ½d. to 1d. for a period of five years, commencing with the levy on the 1938 output, the extra amount to be earmarked for the provision of baths.
