Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Coalfield Communities (28 Oct 2014)

Jimmy Hood: I welcome the debate, which is 30 years after the miners’ strike. Much has been written and said of that period, but so much of what really happened to miners, their families and communities—there was evidence earlier today—has not been told.

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Coalfield Communities (28 Oct 2014)

Jimmy Hood: No, I will not give way. I will give way when I have finished my point. Miners were saying in the dock in all the magistrates courts throughout the strike that they objected to the instructions coming from the Home Secretary when there were reports of child abuse linked with that same Home Secretary.
