The Government have taken £4.4bn from the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme. An end to the unfair surplus sharing would give the average miner an extra £14 per week.

As the cost of living spirals under this Government, £14 a week could make all the difference to many pensioners in Barnsley.

I have been campaigning for justice on miners’ pensions. My most recent piece for Labour List is available here.

The Labour Party would implement the cross-party report – and given the PM promised change this Government should too.

Today I am pleased the Leader of the House agreed to facilitate a meeting between the Scheme Trustees and the new Minister.
