LABOUR PARTY MANIFESTO

Support for Orgreave Justice and Miners Pensions

The Labour manifesto sets out how a Labour government will deliver the transformative change Britain needs.

In the Justice section of the Manifesto it states that: 

We will establish public inquiries into historical injustices including blacklisting and Orgreave, and ensure the second phase of the Grenfell Inquiry has the confidence of all those affected, especially the bereaved families and survivors. 

In the Social Security section of the Manifesto it states under Pensions that: 

Labour has listened to the NUM and in government will end the injustice of the state taking 50% of the surplus in the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme and introduce new sharing arrangements so that 10% goes to government and 90% stays with scheme members. This new sharing arrangement will also apply to the British Coal Staff Superannuation Scheme.
