§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list, from 1945, the numbers of salary increases awarded to miners, the amounts paid and the percentage increase over the previous figure in each case; and what has been the real value of such increases to date, taking 1945 as a base.
§ Mr. John Moore
