Auchengeich Colliery Disaster

EDM number 332 in 2017-18, proposed by Hugh Gaffney on 09/10/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Coal and Industrial health and safety.

That this House notes that 18 September 2017 marked the 58th 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; regretfully acknowledges that in 1959 a further 42 men lost their lives working in the pits; commends the support extended to the community throughout the years, ensuring everlasting memory and sustenance for the stricken families, alongside a still saddened community; and undertakes never to forget the sacrifices made by all those who were killed, injured or otherwise affected by mining accidents across the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
