Wednesday’s Westminster Hall debate in the UK Parliament on UK-listed mining companies included several mentions of London Mining Network and our report, UK listed mining companies and the case for stricter regulation.
John McDonnell MP singled out GCM Resources for particular criticism, noting the extreme damage that would be done by its Phulbari opencast mine in Bangladesh were the project to go ahead.
GCM’s AGM is to take place on 20 December in London.
John McDonnell also spoke about Anglo American, BHP Billiton, Vedanta and Xstrata.
