MIXERS' CONDITIONS"

Mr. . Orr's letter regarding the Miners' Council and the pampering of miners makes me wonder if he knows what he is talking about. I would like to know if he has ever been in a mine, even as a visitor. I am an ex-miner, and would not return for £20 a week. If the majority of essential industries were to work as hard as the miners, under the conditions the miners work, I am afraid there would have been far more trouble in this country than there has been. Since there has been no coal imported from Australia, the miners are expected to make up this deficiency, which is an absolute impossibility. I wonder what sort of a miner would Mr. Orr make? There is plenty of room down the mines for men like him and he also may be able to show the miners an easier way to get the coal out. They would-be pleased to learn it. A miner gets no medals for what he does, but gets plentv of abuse. T. DAVIES.
