Key role for Dominic Grieve following Hillsborough files release
BEACONSFIELD MP Dominic Grieve now has a key role to play as dozens of families continue to fight for justice over the Hillsborough disaster.
Newly published documents today revealed how police and emergency services made "strenuous attempts" to deflect the blame for the tragedy onto innocent fans.
Mr Grieve, who is the government’s Attorney General, will now review the report in order to decide whether to apply to the High Court to quash the original, flawed inquest and order a new one.
The disclosures were made by the Hillsborough Independent Panel, which has been overseeing the release of thousands of official documents relating to Britain's deadliest sporting disaster.
Mr Grieve sat solemnly on the front bench as Prime Minister David Cameron offered a "profound" apology to the families of the 96 people who died, telling the House of Commons that today's report made clear that "the Liverpool fans were not the cause of the disaster".
Mr Cameron also answered several questions from MPs by saying 'that will be a matter for the Attorney General'.
The papers were released following a decision earlier this year by Home Secretary Theresa May, who is also Cookham’s MP.
