Question to the Home Office
To ask Her Majesty's Government when the report by Bishop James Jones into the Hillsborough families’ experiences was received; when it will be made publicly available; and whether it has addressed issues relating to legal representation for families of victims at coroners' inquests where the police are legally represented.
Answer (Baroness Williams of Trafford)
Bishop James Jones submitted a copy of his report into the experiences of the Hillsborough families to the Home Secretary on 20 June 2017. On 8 September 2017 he submitted a version that takes account of the Crown Prosecution Service’s charging decisions announced on 28 June 2017. That report will be considered by the Government. The report and separately the Government’s response will be published in due course. In the meantime we are not in a position to comment on its contents.
