asked the Secretary for Mines whether the national industrial council under the Coal Mines Act, 1930, has yet been constituted; and if he will give the names of the members of the council?

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Mr. Rosbotham).

Is the Minister aware that he did not reply to the second part of my question yesterday? All he said was that he hoped to be in a position to set up the council this week; will he answer the second part of the question whether he can give the names or not?

I think perhaps that my hon. Friend had better wait the announcement, which will come very shortly.

Can the Minister tell us when he will be in a position to give the names that constitute the council?


asked the Secretary for Mines if he will issue a White Paper giving the various schemes set up in the different coalfields under the Coal Mines Act, 1930?

The Central Scheme and District Scheme's made under Part I. of the Coal Mines Act, 1930, have been published by the Stationery Office. I will arrange for two or three sets of the Schemes to be placed in the Library.
