NUM policy

An article last month, 'Miners transfer pension schemes', quoted an insurance company's claims that local officials of the National Union of Mineworkers were encouraging former miners to switch their benefits out of the Mineworkers' Pension Scheme. Later in the article there was a separate reference to Frickley Colliery, South Yorkshire. The Frickley branch of the NUM has asked us to say that it is not its policy to recommend such transfers.
