Motion text

That this House notes the historic victory of the Shrewsbury 24 Campaign in having their charges quashed by the Court of Appeal after almost half a century of injustice; notes the tireless work that has been done to get to this stage by the Shrewsbury 24 campaigners and the support they have received from the TUC and trade union movement; notes that today's verdict will be seen as a boost to working people across the UK who stand up for their rights in the workplace; further notes that whilst celebration is in order, that many of those involved saw their lives ruined by the politicisation of the charges and that some have not lived long enough to see justice done; and calls upon the Government to hold a public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the dispute and the trial.
