Derek contributes to debate on Hillsborough Disaster Commons Debate

19 Oct 2011

Derek took part in the Hillsborough Stadium Disaster debate in the House of Commons on Monday 17th October.

He and Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotherham were in the stadium and saw the disaster unfold.

Derek said;

"I was pleased that I was able to speak in the debate, one of the most passionate ever heard in the House of Commons.  Home Secretary Theresa May confirmed that all relevant documents held by Government will be released to the Hillsborough Independent Panel unredacted.

After the debate, I spoke with many of the relatives of the deceased, who had come down to Westminster and they told me they were delighted with the debate and the fact that all the relevant issues were raised by MPs."
