Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (27 Jul 1931)

Mr George Shield: It is true to say that, perhaps, no question looms so large in the public mind to-day—certainly no question occupies more time of this House—than the very important question which we are discussing to-day. Nor can this be wondered at when we recognise the chaos and dislocation which have taken place in what was once a flourishing industry. As one representing a mining district depending...

Accidents in Mines. ( 3 Dec 1930)

Mr George Shield: I desire to support the Motion standing in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Clayton (Mr. Sutton).

As far as Northumberland is concerned, in the matter of hours the miners of Northumberland were in a considerably better position 100 years ago...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates. (27 Feb 1929)

Mr George Shield: A new Member when be comes to the House has at some time to make a maiden speech. If that was the reason for my rising to-day it would be a very natural one; but my reason is very much deeper than that.
