This afternoon a delegation of NUM Officials and former Miners met with Stephanie Peacock MP and Darren Jones MP, Chair of the BEIS Select Committee that conducted an inquiry into the MPS guarantee arrangements. The report conducted that the arrangement were unfair and made some recommendations to Government. Government has until early July to respond to the BEIS Select Committee report and Darren was keen to hear the views of the NUM and former Mineworkers on the BEISE Select Committee report and what they hope the Government response will be.

Everyone thanked Stephanie, Darren, his committee and all the MP’s that have recently signed a letter to the Prime Minister calling for the Government to accept the recommendations.
