Michael has jointly written to the Trustees of the MPS in order to meet and discuss the arrangements. Previously, he had signed Early Day Motion 671 that calls for a review, the full wording of which can be found here: https://www.parliament.uk/edm/2016-17/671
50 per cent of the surplus made by the MPS is received by the Government, who since 1994 have made £3.36bn from the scheme despite contributing nothing to it.
Commenting, Michael said:
"This is not good enough, and the former miners and their families deserve a far better deal."
