Coal Industry And Rjb Mining (No. 2)

EDM number 519 in 1997-98, proposed by Robert Marshall-Andrews on 27/11/1997.

That this House expresses its grave concern at the uncertainty which exists in the coal mining industry in the United Kingdom; calls upon Her Majesty's Government to set up a tribunal of inquiry under the Tribunals and Inquiries (Evidence) Act 1921, to investigate and report on the transfer of assets and undertakings to RJB Mining; and urgesthat the terms of reference of such enquiry should include whether the sale of undertakings in the industry to Richard Budge and/or RJB Mining was in accordance with good business practice, whether RJB Mining has carried out its business in accordance with good business practice and law, whether proper undertakings were sought from or given by RJBMining by or to the last administration in relation to closures and redundancies within the industry and whether due enquiries were made as to the antecedents of the directors of RJB Mining and, in particular Richard Budge, in the light of the report by Coopers and Lybrand, receivers for AF Budge to the DTI in 1994 that Richard Budge was unfit to be concerned in the management of a company.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
