FOR SIX HOURS ON SATUR- DAY The Conciliation Board for the Lan- cashire and Cheshire area under the Miners' Minimum Wage Act sat at the Queen's Hotel, Manchester, Saturday. The consideration of the application by the men for certain changes to be made in the local award under the Act was resumed. Mr Thomas Greenall, the president of the Lancashire and Cheshire Miners' Federation, said at the close of the con- ference that with regard to the "Question of wages and the surface hands an application had again been made for the establishment of minimum rates which were being paid at collieries in the Lan- cashire and Cheshire area, employing 40 per cent. of the members of the federa- tion. After a long discussion the employers made an offer of a minimum of 3s.4d. per day for adult able-bodied workmen, which was 6d. per day less than the scale which the Miners' Federation was asking for. The offer was refused by the miners' representatives.
