Last week, local MSP Neil Findlay attended a public meeting, which sought to gather evidence from locals about policing during the 1984-5 miners’ strike.
The Independent Review of Policing during the Miners’ Strike have announced a series of public meetings across Scotland.
Locals from West Lothian and the surrounding area came along to the meeting in Fauldhouse, on Wednesday 27th November, to tell the panel about their experiences of the strike.
Neil Findlay MSP has urged that people from West Lothian, and beyond, with experience of the strike, to submit evidence by 12 December.
Evidence can be submitted electronically or by attending one of the upcoming public meetings in Stirling and Glasgow.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“I was delighted that local people came along to share their stories of the 1984-5 strike.
“If you had any experience of the strike, I would strongly encourage you to submit evidence before the deadline on 12 December 2018.
“This evidence is crucial for informing the panel’s report which has real potential to deliver justice for former miners, their families, supporters and activists.”
