Motion text

That this House is concerned about the decision of the Department of Work and Pensions to include a requirement that relatives of deceased mineworkers be required to accompany any application with a Grant of Probate, the purpose of doing so to apparently reduce the overall amount of compensation payable under the Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis Scheme 1974 to recipients; believes such a practice to be despicable and a direct attack on carers who have devoted much of their lives looking after loved ones terminally damaged by their employment; and calls upon the Government to end forthwith such demeaning practices.
