Questions to be asked
Now that the rescue work at the mine (pictured below) is over with such sad results, questions must be asked about men being allowed to work such in dangerious conditions. It is easy to say, with hindsight, that the money being justifiably spent on the rescue could have produced a means of better employment with good government.
It must be remembered that the occurance took place on the patch of the NPT Council. We understand that mines like this need only be inspected once a year. Is this really good enough?
In October 1858 at the Primrose Collery, Rhos, 14 men and boys died underground - this was just about 2 miles from the mine below.
