I’m delighted to secure a debate in House of Commons on Thursday to discuss the Mineworkers Pension scheme.

The current arrangement sees the Government take 50% of any surplus made by the scheme, and since 1994 they have taken £4.4bn without paying a single penny in.

Miners toiled for years in dangerous conditions to help keep our lights on and our country running, yet the Government continues to raid their pension pot -; they’ll take another £427m over the next three years.

I’ll be pushing the Government to arrange a fairer scheme that gives more money to retired miners and their families.
