Państwowa Komisja Węgla

The National Coal Board (NCB) was the statutory corporation created to run the nationalised coal mining industry in the United Kingdom. Set up under the Coal Industry Nationalisation Act 1946, it took over the United Kingdom's collieries on "vesting day", 1 January 1947. In 1987 the NCB was renamed the British Coal Corporation, and its assets were subsequently privatised.

A wage of £5 a week was paid for being an apprentice with the National Coal Board for example. It was about a quarter of a full wage for a man with a family to keep. More than a quarter in many cases and I began to believe that I had opted for a bummer.
