Coalmining Situation (13 Oct 1943)

Sir Adrian Baillie: It is a long time since I intervened in a Debate in this House, and still longer since I intervened in a coalmining Debate. Therefore, I follow the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Wakefield (Mr. Greenwood) with some diffidence, because I never heard him make a more eloquent, a more box-thumping, or a more damaging speech.

Coalmining Situation (13 Oct 1943)

Sir Adrian Baillie: It is some years since I was intimately connected with the coal-mining industry, and I merely want to give a few figures. We have heard some talk of strikes and of absenteeism.

Coalmining Situation (13 Oct 1943)
