Motion text

That this House notes the public interest and disquiet over the case of Ian Tomlinson and the threat to public trust and confidence in the police that this case poses; further notes that the Independent Police Complaints Commission failed to investigate this death for seven days and notes the manner in which this failure has undermined public trust and confidence in the police complaints system; further notes the controversy over the appointment of the pathologist DrFreddie Patelin this case; further notes the possibility of a conflict of interest in the inquest as presently constituted; therefore calls on the Secretary of State for Justice to appoint a judge as coroner to conduct a prompt and effective inquest into the far-ranging issues this case raises; and calls on the Legal Services Commission to provide public funding for Ian Tomlinson's family to be legally represented.
