The Independent Review of Policing during the Miners’ Strike have announced a series of public meetings across Scotland.
The aim of these meetings is for local people to come along and share their experiences of the miners’ strike, which will inform the final report.
The Independent Review of Policing during the Miners’ Strike was announced by then Justice Secretary, Michael Matheson, in July.
Local MSP Neil Findlay has pursued this matter with the Scottish Government since he entered parliament in 2011.
A public meeting will take place in Fauldhouse Miners’ Welfare on Tuesday 27th November at 6pm.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“Following the announcement of an Independent Review into the actions of the Police during the 1984-5 miners’ strike, the panel are entering into mining communities across Scotland to hear from those affected.
“Having pursued a full UK public inquiry, I am delighted that people in mining communities will have a chance to tell their story.
“I would urge that people from West Lothian and beyond should come along.
“This is a chance for former miners, their families, supporters and activists to have their say and I hope will deliver justice after all these years”
