Mirror Group Newspapers

EDM number 1478 in 1992-93, proposed by Jim Hood on 25/02/1993.

That this House regrets the turmoil in the Mirror Group Newspapers caused by changes in their management structure; disagrees with the attacks on the trade union rights; supports the local N.U.J.'s opposition to the management's attacks on their members; remembers the disgraceful, slanderous attacks by the Daily Mirror on the leadership of the National Union of Mineworkers, encouraged and funded by Robert Maxwell from a spurious fund known as Cyclops; considers that integrity and allegiance to Labour principles is a much more important guarantee of M.G.N.'s political orientation; and calls on the management at M.G.N. to practice those principles both in dealing with their workforce and in the policy of their editorial staff.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
