asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what funds, raised at the time for the specific purpose of assistance to dependants of those killed or maimed in colliery disasters in Great Britain over the last 30 years, still remain; and, of such funds, what amounts, in each specific case, are now redundant to the needs of such dependants.

I regret that I have not yet been able to assemble the information for which the hon. Member asks. But I hope that a new edition of the Colliery Accidents Fund Return will shortly be prepared. When it is issued, I will send the hon. Member a copy and I think he will find that it supplies the answers to the questions he has raised.
