§ Mr. Stevenson
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the pension rights of miners dismissed following the 1984 dispute, with particular reference to(a) those dismissed who had their dismissal confirmed on appeal, (b) those dismissed who won their appeal against dismissal and (c) those dismissed who made no appeal. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
The Coalfield Task Force, established by my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister, recommended that the DTI review the pension entitlements of men who were not reinstated following their dismissal during the 1984–85 miners' strike. I shall shortly be issuing a document which will put forward proposals for addressing these questions.
