Motion text

That this House, in light of the very welcome outcome of the inquest into the deaths of 96 Liverpool supporters at Hillsborough, calls on Sir Bernard Ingham immediately to accept that the letter he sent to the families of victims on 8 July 1996 was crass, misinformed, insensitive, rude and just plain wrong; and furthermore calls on Sir Bernard Ingham to apologise to the families and to accept that his actions in sending such a letter were totally inappropriate and not befitting the position that he held within Government.
