HC Deb 30 January 2002 vol 379 c386W
Jeff Ennis

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many former miners in Barnsley, East and Mexborough on low mineworkers' pensions will benefit from the one-off lump sum payments she recently announced. [R] [30523]

Mr. Wilson

This information is not kept on a constituency basis and can be identified only at a disproportionate cost.

However, we estimate around 15,000 members in Yorkshire will benefit from this one-off lump sum payment, including those living in my hon. Friend's constituency of Barnsley, East and Mexborough.
