I beg to move, in page 55, line 6, to leave out "employed at a mine."

This Amendment and the next deal with a point which caused doubt in the Committee. The doubt was whether in the Bill as drafted the expression
"a person employed in a mine"
included a manager or under-manager. The object of the Amendment is to ensure that a manager or under-manager is included within the provisions of the Clause.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 55, line 7, after "does." insert "at a mine."

In line 8, leave out "employed."—[ Mr. Joynson-Hicks.]

I beg to move, in line 9, after "do." to insert "at a mine."

This is consequential on the last Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In line 11, leave out "so employed," and insert "thereat."—[ Mr. Joynson-Hicks.]
