Yardley MP Jess Phillips supports 'Hillsborough Law' to assist the Grenfell publc enquiry.
Jess recently signed a letter sent by Alison McGovern MP to the Prime Minister, expressing cross-party support for the ‘Hillsborough Law’, the Public Authority (Accountability) Bill, to assist the Grenfell public inquiry.
The letter comes with a reminder to the Prime Minister that she has ‘argued that it is priority for her government to tackle ‘burning injustices’ within our society and the Grenfell fire serves as a stark reminder that this issue goes beyond the suffering of the Hillsborough families’. There can be no injustice more cruel or painful than the experience of the Hillsborough families and that of the families of other victims of public disasters who have been treated in an appalling way by public bodies and by the legal system.
It is the hope of Alison McGovern MP and the other signatories, to make good commitment, support the measures contained within this Bill, and take a vital first step towards changing the culture by improving justice and accountability for public bodies in our country.
