asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether a scheme his yet been drawn up for the compensation of officials and staffs declared redundant since the nationalisation of the coal industry.
Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend approved the National Coal Board's scheme of compensation for redundant staff and officials on 5th February, 1949.
Are there still officials receiving salaries from the National Coal Board under agreements made with their former employers before the vesting date?
I should require notice of a particular case.
