Press Statement from Ron Hogg:
"Today’s announcement by the Home Secretary declaring that the Government will not pursue an inquiry into the so-called Battle of Orgreave will leave the former mining communities in County Durham feeling bitterly disappointed. At the very least, miners and their families deserved answers and an independent inquiry would have led to a search for the truth. I feel incredibly frustrated for the people who will now never see justice. A full and proper inquiry was necessary to restore public trust and confidence and I am dismayed that the Home Secretary has failed to establish one."
