‘Claudia’s Law’ gets green light from MPs


A law championed by the father of the chef Claudia Lawrence to help the families of other missing people has cleared its final Commons stage.

The proposals, known as ‘Claudia’s Law’, are one step closer to the statute book and would ensure someone with sufficient interest in the property and affairs of a missing person could be appointed as a guardian by a court 90 days after the disappeara­nce. Peter Lawrence gave a thumbs-up from the public gallery as MPs allowed draft legislatio­n to complete its final stages.
