HC Deb 15 July 1985 vol 83 c33W
Mr. Gordon Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will ask the chairman of the National Coal Board to report to him the outcome of its review of the cases of dismissed miners, whether all cases have been reviewed and whether each miner has had the opportunity to put his case.

Mr. David Hunt

The National Coal Board continues to review the cases of all miners dismissed as a result of the recent strike. The majority of cases that have been taken to industrial tribunals have yet to be heard.
