COAL MINES BILL. MEASURE DRAFTED B7 THE MINERS FEDERATION. The Miners' Federation propose to intro- duce into the House of Commons this session a Bill for the amendment of the Coal Mines Regulation Act of 1887. The most important clauses in the Bill propose to deal with the hours of work and of employment in mines. With a view to securing tbe eight hours day, a clause is inserted in the Bill to the effect that no person under the age of twenty-one vears shall be employed in or allowed to be for the purpose of employment in any mine below ground for more than eight hours during any consecutive twenty-four hows. Sub- sections provide for the keeping in the office of the mine a book to be called the "Hours of Work Book." in which is to be kept a record of the time during which any person »s employed in the mine. The other important clause provides that "No person who oas not been so employed before he has attained the age of eighteen years shall be employed in or allowed to be for the purpose of employment in any mina below ground." A sub-section exempts persons so employed before the. passing of the Bill into law. Both principles are new to legislation for the regulation of the mininif industry, and are likely, if the Bill reaches the Committee stage, to be the sub- ject of much controversy. Several of the clauses designed to promote the safer working 19 of mines have been withdrawn from the Bill as drafted a year ago*, having been dealt with in the Bill which the Home Secretary suc- oeeded jn passing last session.
