REFORMING THE LAW ON PSYCHIATRIC INJURY
EDM #1224
Tabled 24 March 2014
2013-14 Session
That this House believes that the current law in England and Wales on psychiatric injury for people who witness the death or injury of a loved one is restrictive and unfair; further believes that 25 years after the Hillsborough disaster, when the law was enshrined, the law no longer reflects modern society; further believes the law must recognise that you do not need to have a parental or marital relationship to love someone, you do not need to be shocked to suffer psychiatric injury, and you do not need to be standing next to someone when they are killed or injured to be traumatised; and urges the Government to reform the law.
