PUBLIC INQUIRY ON BLACKLISTING
EDM #2186
Tabled 14 March 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that an internal police investigation, the Creedon report, has been made public; understands that this has concluded that the police, including Special Branches across the UK, and the security services, supplied information to the Consulting Association, and its predecessor, the Economic League, that was funded by some of the country's major construction firms; believes that this blacklist destroyed lives, families and reputations for decades, without justice or accountability for those affected; commends the campaigners who have resisted this historic injustice for decades; understands that many were subject to alleged police surveillance, despite not breaking any laws; acknowledges that the findings of the report were published on 6 March 2019, which is the 10th anniversary of the day that the original details of the blacklist were exposed, and considers that this marks a historic progression in the battle against what it sees as a sustained attack on political freedom; and joins calls by the Blacklisting Support Group and other campaigners for a full public inquiry into this human rights injustice.
