A cross party group of MP’s have written to the Minister following up on comments that he made in the backbench debate organised by Grahame Morris MP (Easington) in respect of proposals put to him by the MPS Trustees. Whilst we will have to wait and see what the proposals are if adopted and what benefits they will bring to MPS pensions the NUM remains committed to a review of the surplus sharing arrangements. We thank the MP’s who spoke in the debate and have signed the letter to the Minister for their support and reiterate that an equal share is not a fair share of the surpluses of a pension scheme that the Government have not contributed to.
