Matalan: how much?

After pressure from thousands of 38 Degrees members, Matalan have agreed to pay compensation to the survivors of last year's catastrophic Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. 

BUT there's a big catch. They haven't said how much. Is it the full amount, or a token gesture?

Join thousands of 38 Degrees members outside Matalan stores across the UK this Saturday, to demand that Matalan reveals how much they've paid!
