Alert me about debates like this

Mr. STANLEY:

The Department is aware of 28 cases of liquidations in the coal mining industry since the beginning of 1927 in which there has been some loss, or delay of payment, of compensation. There have been a considerable number of other cases in this industry in which it has been ascertained that no permanent loss of compensation resulted, but there may have been delay in making payment. I regret that no information is available as regards other industries, but practically all the complaints which have recently reached me on this matter have related to the coal mining industry.
