That this House notes that 18 September 2018 will mark the 59th anniversary of the Auchengeich Colliery disaster, in which 47 miners went to work never to return home to their families, leaving 76 children without a father and a community devastated; recognises the fact that the youngest man to die was 22 years old and the oldest was 62 and that these men gave their lives to building better communities for working class people; further notes that each year the community comes together to remember those who lost their life and to support the families who lost loved ones; notes that on 8 September 2018 the Auchengeich Miners Memorial Committee will host a cabaret show to raise money to finance the annual memorial service; and urges people from across the UK to attend and wishes all those who will be coming together the very best of wishes.
