§ Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that 1,000 coalminers went on strike on 6th October, 1945; whether he has considered the statement issued by the manager of the pit, details of which have been sent to him; and what action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. Isaacs
I received the statement referred to late yesterday. This matter is one for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Fuel and Power, to whom I have forwarded the statement for consideration.
